Breaking and Entering

It would seem the police have a program to do this in the UK, and end up scolding the homeowner for bad security practices.

    At least the regular police will knock, not break in. The PCSOs – civilian adjuncts with damn-all training but some powers normally reserved for full LEOs – will sometimes continue to go overboard, as with the incident of the one who climbed in a window and when caught lectured the occupant.

    The regular coppers would not do that anyway, since Health-and-Safety (sort of like OSHA) would come down on them for not using approved equipment or not waiting for the specially-trained ladder-use-trained flying squad…

    Guess we should wait for the “PCSO brained with cricket bat and buried in garden after break-in” story.

    After which the resident is charged with assault on a PO with a dangerous weapon and cricket bats will require a license to own with reasonable need – i.e.: being an active member of the local cricket club. Oh, and they will need to be under lock and key when not in use actually on the pitch.

    If that doesn’t work, all existing bats will have to be turned in to the local constabulary and replaced (at the licensee’s expense) with Nerf equivalents.
