  2. “I will just get my unlicensed sawn off shotgun from the back of the wardrobe and go and look for them”

    Bet they find enough resources then...... :rolleyes:
     
  3. I'm afraid the time is coming when the law must allow rural folk to take the law into their own hands to a degree because society, in the form of a resource depleted police service, has ceased to keep up it's end of the bargain. :(

    only the resources to pick you up, search your property and seize any weapons, legal or otherwise.

    Seems almost every day there is a report about the NHS, Police or other such department that doesn't have enough money to do what is needed.

    I think they need to look at the "farmers careful with money" thread first.

    Farmers sorting out criminals must be one of the "public goods" that Gove et al keep refering to. :ninja: I hear of some folks playing a new sport called courser coursing :ROFLMAO:.. though lurchers dont run the same risk of delayed reprisals when they ram a hare. :cautious:

    To often in the public sector ecomies of scale leads to excesses of scale. Always much easier to send tax payers money than your own.

    I’ll take police resource shortages seriously when their pension comes into line with the rest of society and not one second before.

    Thin blue line my arse, thick green wedge in their pocket more like.

    It will wake them up, but the local 'Poilius Alba' (or whatever the SNP re-branded them as :banghead:) won't be allowed to leave the station until the armed response travel an hour down from Fettes. In fact, I'd almost bet the night shift aren't allowed to leave the city boundary for fear of the city being left without armed police.

    I know a few coppers, and they say the public would be disgusted if they knew that one of the main reasons for the formation of 'Police Scotland' was to move the rural resources into the cities, "oiling the squeaky wheel".

    Same here, was up over Black Isle last week and come upon a PC slowing me down on a single track road. Got round the corner and here is 4-5 fire engines including a fully extended turntable ladder, and 20 odd emergency cars police, CID, fire and a loan ambulance all because some numb nut thrill seeker has decided to climb the 800ft Monteagle transmitter. This was at 8pm and they had been there from 9 am what is more galling than the waste of resources was police had been taken from other areas to this. I sippsup it made a good training exercise.

    Sometimes there is only one car covering Sutherland and Easter Ross. An are which can take 2hrs to get from one side to the other.

    They are far too busy doing more important things.:rolleyes:

    The pile of correspondence about the seizure of my guns (returned a year later with an apology) sent off to the Police Investigations and Reviews Commission was over an inch thick. I know another case where the documentation ran to 141 pages!

    Sorry to say complaints are necessary so eventually, through lots and lots of practice, they will start to do the job the tax payer pays them to do according to the guide lines. There is truth in the old proverb, "Do it right, do it once".
