How did they get this so wrong, are the Police morphing into social workers?

When I was burgled I sat in the remains of my trashed home for four hours before a bluebottle finally turned up and told me that they were too busy to do anything about it. Whilst these officers have presumably been told to be stood in front of that mobile noticeboard I am fairly confident that the vast majority of people would rather that they were busy solving crimes. I would also express an entirely personal opinion that burglary is a somewhat more important crime than hurt feelings.

The Police shouldn't play politics.

It could only happen to Merseyside Police, couldn't it? The Scousers are, of course, masters of being offended by anything and everything.

So, to my understanding that they believed that being offensive is a crime and the police have committed a crime by being offensive... Then they apologised for NOT knowing the law - about being offensive. Right?

If being offensive is an offence, then I'm sure most of us here would be serving consecutive life sentences by now...
