What happened to the New York zero tolerance broken windows policy that every right-wing commentator was in favour of? Pick people up for committing trivial offences and you'll discover more serious crimes committed aren't far away. But all misogynistic and racist crimes short of gunning down a synagogue are trivial in Littlejohn's world.
Zero tolerance - like the current "Coppers need to knuckle down and get on with it" were both handy ways of deflecting from real practical policing issues.
Remember when "Paperwork" was all that prevented their deploying a constable on every street corner.
The main paperwork those constables got to see was a P45.
Now they can hold their little "Get on with it coppers" press conferences.
It's a handy deflection to conceal the reality that law and order is being rationed.
