Drug addicts are not bad people and should be given support and treatment rather than regarded as criminals, one of the country’s most senior police officers has said.Great! I suppose after that, we’ll dish out free beer to alcoholics and free goods to shoplifters?
I don’t think I would like to dwell on what we might dish out to sex maniacs…
So who does this barmy old git think the police should be arresting?
“The police should continue to tackle drug dealers and other criminals.”Odd. There are calls to criminalise the users of prostitutes elsewhere rather than the suppliers of such services, yet he wants the suppliers of this particular ‘service’ criminalised rather than the buyers.
Can’t we get some joined up thinking?
Or even some thinking. It’d be a start.
