and I could only use them to solve 3% of crimes. But then, yours truly suspects it never was about crime solving anyway.
I wonder how the UK will play this news? Do you suppose they will dismantle this expensive boondoggle, or use the numbers as proof that they must "do more", and expand the system even further?
Of course, I believer that the private ownership of firearms and the ability to carry concealed, combined with the repeal of laws that render citizens liable to arrest if they defend themselves, would go much further toward solving the problem. (Pictures of some dead bad guys wouldn't hurt, either.) However, I can't see the UK nannies allowing anything like that.
It's a damn shame to have to watch the mother country sink into the muck voluntarily.
