So, the recent kerfuffle about burglars or hate crimes.

I've glanced at some tabloid headlines, read some comments round the interwebz, and read the above story.

Just me who's utterly unsurprised that the LAW'N'ORDER SCHOOL OF HARD KNOCKS GENE HUNT crowd don't give a fig about laws not being enforced, but rather want to fight a cultural battle?

I mean, if the law of the land is the law of the land, the police are supposed to a) protect it, and b) be able to protect it.
