Judge claims police are not an emergency resource!
Once again a member of our esteemed judiciary makes a statement that makes the public think that judges are not really in touch with real life.
Apparently, some people are using the police “like an emergency resource”! Worse than this, once they’ve made a complaint to the police, they don’t want to go ahead with a prosecution.
Could that be because, like the rest of us, the people who phone the police to sort out their lives know that whatever happens, there is very little likelihood of the courts actually doing anything?
If the Crown Prosecution Service, the court system, magistrates and judges changed their processes to make it simpler to get justice and PUNISH the people who commit crime, then perhaps more people would have enough faith in the system to actually use it properly?
