Re: Why are the police (or at least some of them) so lazy?
Don't know the circumstances behind them not stopping so I'm not going to comment. However
Quite a number of years ago I was driving back to university with all my belongings when I was wiped out on a roundabout leaving my car as a write-off. The police attended and sorted out getting the car uplifted. They then told me to remove my belongings. Then promptly told me that they couldn't give me a lift 2 miles up the road as they were being called back to the station, the other party disappeared in an ambulance. They told me they would go to the taxi rank on the way back to the police station and send a taxi down for me. I had no option but to stay were I was on the side of a busy junction with all my stuff until I managed to flag down the only taxi that would stop over an hour later. This was at the start of January in Scotland! On the plus side I had lots of clothes with me.
The next day when I had to get the bus to get police station to show my details, I asked what time the night befores shift had finished. Low and behold it was around the same time as my accident. I'm not bitter, but I certainly wouldn't have treated anyone like that. I do believe that if any police officer is wanting to be treated with respect they should at least go out there and earn it.
