Police targets

Did anyone watch the Panorama investigation into the police with PC David Copperfield, last night? The programme mentioned that because of targets from Whitehall the police would arrest relatively easy targets.

He is probably right. What other police force in the world would waste their time arresting a school boy for criminal damage to a 1p plastic bag? Surely, a little discretion could have been used? There is real crime out there and the police should have been solving that.

Hat tip: UK tabloid.
