It wasn't enough that you then held him for 12 hours - it took that long to check out the story? Seriously? - while his mother lay close to death in the hospital.
But now, you can't even let him have his property?
He can't go back to his house or get his clothes or his phone.OK, it's a crime scene. Everyone knows that. We watch 'CSI' and 'The Bill'.
But you can't spare someone to take this lad - the innocent victim, not the perpetrator - back to his house to collect his belongings while ensuring he doesn't affect it?
Not for the sake of simple humanity, if the modern police 'service' lacks that (it clearly seems to, at times), but for some good PR..?
What, is there no target for it?
