Crime and police

It seems to have become something of a habit that, at the conclusion of a criminal trial, the senior policeman involved delivers to the waiting world his thoughts on the case, such as this. I cannot identify when this practice began but I rather wish it would cease.

Incidentally, does "pure evil" add anything to our understanding of the case? Other than revealing the medieval cast of police thought?

Such a good story though. I thought it was hilarious that knee-jerking lefties whinged that because Shannon and her family weren't photogenic and were 'chavs' that the media weren't interested in covering the terrible abduction.

Such prejudice against unfairly stereotyped people.

I believe the term I'm after is "LOL".
