Nothing annoys Nanny more than when someone uses the law to avoid being punished by Nanny, for some alleged "crime" that Nanny most certainly knows for sure that the person is guilty of.
In Nanny's world, the law is to be used to punish and control people; not to be used for defending the innocent.
Well, you can imagine how cross Nanny is that some people are using the law to defend themselves when they are charged with motoring offences. Nanny's police force just love to catch motorists breaking Nanny's laws.
Why is that then?
Could it be that other crimes such as; muggings, assaults and robberies just require too much work to solve?
Could it be that the police are rewarded for the number of successful convictions they make, irrespective of the severity of the crime?
Could it be that fines from motoring convictions are used to cover the costs of the police?
What do you think folks?
Anyhoo, Nanny's police have decreed that they are fed up with people using legal "loopholes"; ie defending themselves as they are legally entitled to do so, to avoid being convicted of driving offences.
Nanny's police have stated that they are now out to get those people who are declared innocent by the courts; you see folks the police know that these people are as guilty as hell, and don't think that the courts have any business in interfering with their convictions.
The Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) wants police and Crown Prosecution Service lawyers to make stronger cases against drivers whose legal teams use loopholes in the law to get them off.
One chief constable is quoted as saying that officers would be "looking for" motorists who had been "unjustly acquitted".
Who the hell makes the judgement as to what an "unjust" acquittal is?
Someone needs to remind Nanny's police that the courts and the legal system are to be respected, most certainly by the officers of the law.
Better that 100 guilty men go free, than 1 innocent man go to jail!
The trouble is the police don't believe that!
Meredydd Hughes, the Chief Constable of South Yorkshire Police, has issued an open threat to the public:
"There have been a number of cases where people feel that justice has not been done,
both in the drink-driving world
and in other cases where people have evaded the law
having driven cars recklessly and at very high speeds.
I think my colleagues in the roads policing groups
will share my anger when people are unjustly acquitted
and I'm sure they'll be looking for those drivers.
And if they haven't mended their ways
we have an attitude in the police service that we'll see them again sometime."
Liberty, the civil rights group, has warned that this could see police unlawfully targeting individuals they believe have been unfairly acquitted of motoring offences.
Acpo is also introducing a team made up of a lawyer and a former police officer to help prosecute speed camera cases.
Acpo want motorists to decide against contesting their speeding charge because if they lose, their costs will include up to £4K for the team.
There you have it folks, the police are trying to put the frighteners on you.
Only the rich will be able to take the risk of fighting unjust motoring cases, in Nanny's world the police are used to keep the rest of us in order.
We are becoming a police state.
