Crime is not coming down for two reasons. One the police forces fiddle the figures (admitted on a recent radio show) and two I've given up in the past trying to get them to come to an incident where a fella was getting a good hiding. I gave up in the end. How many others can't be bothered to go through their inefficient and laborious customer service department. Not only has crime gone up but the judiciary and keeping criminals out of jail. I don't blame the police I blame the politicians and judiciary who give soft sentences and rarely jail people who go on to commit more crime.

Sounds like me really. Although I don't get caught. Theft usually everyday.
