You mean to tell me that there is nothing better for the police to do in the UK?

Nope. That’s how they spend a lot of their time.

Jim C. This is what the UK police are doing *instead* of “something better”.

For example, they will not investigate Land Registry crimes http://www.lawgazette.co.uk/letters

Financial crimes in the UK are protected by the police. Only name calling and other silly crimes get their full attention.
