I know they have but are they doing a proper job of it!! Doesn't loook like it as co-op was held up at gun point, few shops last week now the asdas, you'd think they'd kinda have a inkling to try do something before it happens (if u get my drift) obvisously they don't know when and how but you know what I mean!!

I just can't believe how bad its got that you just can't feel safe anymore!!

I'm due to give birth in 3weeks and don't want to bring my daughter up around scenes like this :'(

Unfortunately they can't be everywhere every second of the day. It'll be even worse when Thersa DeVille's cuts take place. There will be a hell of a lot less Police. The only winners will be the criminals no

They sure don't help themselves by making innocent drivers their primary target, just so they can avoid getting their hands dirty with real crimes.

Also, they'd save a tonne of money, if they stopped driving their cars like they just stole them, the amount of excessive fuel and maintenance that they gobble through must be through the fecking roof, screaming off at stupid speeds for no reason at all, wheelspinning etc, tailgating everyone just because they're the law and nobody can touch them.

Arseholes.

Matt lfc. I bet if your car was robbed you would ring them to get it back. It may be frustrating gettin pulled over but if u watch police show like traffic cops, road wars etc you will see what a positive job they do. Now as long as u don't break the law keep ur lights in order insure ur car don't speed don't drink and drive then hopefully you'll never get stopped. If you do give the copper a break say yes officer no officer and if you are innocent you'll be on your way. Now if that means twenty innocents are stopped a day but 5 uninsured or banned driver's are caught I have to say that the roads are a better place. We don't have to accept this but we should understand why these crimes are happening... With all these cuts and enforcement on benefits will make some people commit crime because to them its a good option. If it is young lads who have nothing and no one then it might look like a good score. I hope these people are caught and are locked up for a long time.

I hope Mattlfc doesnt need the police soon then ey!!!!


I would say that this spree which is evident across the North West is the result of the budget cut across the country.

I got stopped 3 times last night, in the 3 hours before I posted this. Once by Lancashire, twice by Cheshire. All 3 claimed they were just doing random stops to check for drink drivers, but surprise surprise, none breathalysed me, usual excuse they give to be nosey parkers (or to avoid doing real work).

My family are police for 4 generations now, my uncle was a traffic sergeant, his son is currently a PC in Merseyside, and he has heard of instances whereby a plod has pulled a car in order to avoid having to attend a domestic - work it out?? I've certainly nothing against the police (my grandad would roll in his grave if I did), but some take the feckin piss, and I am certainly not surprised some people hate them.

And where is the excuse for ragging the shit out of their car just because nobody is in a position to do anything about it - cars and fuel that taxpayers pay for.

The spree as you call it, is happening, because the police are too busy pulling over cars with no good reason, instead of trying to detect real crime.

Generally it's a Traffic Officer that pulls the cars, ergo nothing to do with Area/Response as they don't have the expertise Traffic Law knowledge or forms in their cars. I do wish people would get some facts right before engaging fingers wink

Just as an add on - if people didn't break Traffic LAWS then there would be more Police available for other crimes! You wouldn't be moaning about "innocent motorists" being pulled if someone who was uninsured/banned/drunk/no licence/no mot ploughed into you or your car, you'd be moaning that not enough is done to get them off the roads.

Police can't win can they!?! As for the excessive speeds, wheelspinning etc - each car has an internal log that records everything. I won't go into the workings of it as it's not pertinent to the topic. If you're that bothered about the money spent on fuel etc, why not send off a letter requesting figures under the FOI Act smile

*yawn*
