Police could learn from Navestock Parish Council

I grudgingly admire the ingenuity of local councils here in London that are saving shedloads of money by giving up mowing the grass in the parks on the grounds that they are creating biodiversity habitats. Suddenly the thought of driving spinning steel blades through Mrs Tiggywinkle's verdant home seems so wrong.

Likewise, Navestock Parish Council wants to keep its potholes on the grounds that they are a traffic calming measure.

Now if the Police could only find a similar reason for not chasing burglars that would make us all feel warm and comforted by being burgled they'd be onto a winner.

The Republic of Ireland has been doing this for years. Not that they ever made public the real reason for the state of their roads.

Burglars are deprived people that need the exercise. Plus they stimulate the economy by making the owners replace the goods stolen.
And they are not sexist, racist or any other ist - they will steal from all.
No wonder they are safe from the police.
