And how are people 'making it difficult for the police'? Why, simple!
They have nice things! People steal them! The police then have to do what we pay them to do, and find the robbers!
Oh, it's all too much!
Asians are making themselves "targets" for robbers and burglars by wearing "excessive" jewellery in public and leaving it unsecured at home, a community leader has warned.
Chandra Babu, vice chairman of the Asian Resource Centre, told the Advertiser that "one chain" is enough but wearing more was "making it very difficult for the police".Oh, thanks for that crime advice, Chandra, but the police are way, way ahead of you!
Though you should know that they've attempted to row back from this particular message, when aimed specifically at your 'community' in the past, so you might want to check that they are OK with you letting the Bombay cat out of the bag, eh?
"It's difficult because a crime is a crime. There should be no excuse for it, but Asian people need to be educated. They need to be more careful."There IS no excuse for it. So stop trying to make one.
Still, I'd better go see if any 'community leader' for my community is giving out such handy advice, maybe telling me what sort of electronic device is 'enough' for me to use in public, so as not to tempt thieves. I mean, the latest iPhone is obviously too much, but an old Nokia? I should be safe with that, right? And it should be 'enough' for me.
For the last time: IT'S NOT THE FAULT OF THE VICTIM - IT'S THE FAULT OF THE THIEF!
