If the lazy buggers did their job every day the country would be crime free.

Really?....then every police force in the world must qualify for the same title.

In general the police know all the bad apples. The just prefer to squeeze them for tea money

but when they need a good headline they just round up the low/late payers. It sends a strong

message to the rest. Or so it seems. :tongue:
