The police in the Uk have a reputation for wasting time on soft targets, and this story from the BBC highlights why people are so fed up.
Police have interviewed Dennis McHugh, the contestant ejected from Channel 4’s Big Brother show for allegedly spitting in the face of a fellow housemate. He was questioned under caution but no further action will be taken for now.
So, next time you wonder why you can’t get your local police to sort out petty crime or investigate that burglary, you know why. They are probably all watching TV for an easy job to plough their time and effort into.
