British police blog
The Policeman's Blog gives a view of what it's like to be an LEO in Britain. A recent entry notes that burglaries to steal car keys and then the car are a fequent occurence, and the offenders pack CS spray and knives. Police are now advising persons to take their car keys to bed with them at night. He adds:
"American Rifleman has a few alternative solutions to the Car Key Burglary problem; try keeping one of these by the bed instead of your car keys: the XD 45 ACP (.45 calibre but feels like 9mm in the hand), the Kel-Tec PLR-16 (for if you have a particularly long hallway) or the P90 (for when we tell you we’ll be out as soon as we can)."
Another entry summarizes a book that contends that to protect the public, they would have to quadruple the police forces and treble the incarcerations.
