They’re testing out the jolly, Santa Claus like friendly bobby breaking into your home by night in Shoebury. Ross Fountain:
Sleeping householders are going to be woken up in the middle of the night to discover someone breaking into their house – only to discover it is the police.
Police in Shoebury, Essex, have been going round testing doors and windows of houses to check if they have been left unlocked – and if they find an easy way in they will wake up the household to warn them their house is insecure
Of course burglary is made even easier when the police are engaged in obnoxious gimmicks- that treat the public like lowlifes- like this.
Don’t they need warrants to enter people’s property anyway?
I replied no, not since RIPA. They can come into your home any time they like, on any pretext, as long as it looks like they had “probable cause”. This is Britain today.
