    Exclamation British Police Force Urges Residents to Report People Wearing 'Too Much Bling'

    UK is securing ALL freedoms from it's subjects....

    British Police Force Urges Residents to Report People Wearing 'Too Much Bling' - International News | News of the World | Middle East News | Europe News - FOXNews.com

    While walking down the street wearing way too much jewelry might spur a call to the fashion police, but law enforcement in one British city is encouraging people to take it a step further and call Crimestoppers to report over-accessorized offenders.

    The "Too Much Bling? Give Us a Ring" campaign is the latest initiative by Gloucestershire police to lower the crime rate by cracking down on criminals who live in the lap of luxury as result of their crimes, the Daily Mail reported.

    The police also urge residents to report anyone seemingly driving cars or buying items they shouldn't be able to afford amid a credit crunch.

    "In the current time of financial uncertainty, those who live a lavish lifestyle with no discernable, legitimate income become even more apparent," Gloucestershire's Chief constable Dr. Timothy Brain told the Mail.

    Tory Member of Parliament and former Home Secretary Ann Widdecombe recommended a different tactic.

    "Is this a joke? If the police spent half as much time tackling crime and getting out on the beat as they do coming out with this ridiculous stuff, we'd all be better off," Widdecombe told the Mail.
    "Just getting a concealed carry permit means you haven't commited a crime yet. CCP holders commit crimes." Daniel Vice, senior attorney for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, quoted on Fox & Friends, 8 Jul, 2008

    Well, gun bans didn't work, knife bans didn't work, pepper spray, clubs/bats, etc - so why not jewelry. Makes perfect sense.

    Yeah great idea - report your neighbor when he buys a new car. He shouldn't be able to afford that. You can't afford it - how could he? Call the government and they'll investigate him. Maybe they can collect a few statements, then bring him in for an informal trial. After he pleads guilty, just ship him off to a work camp in Siberia.

    Wait - that was Russia 80 years ago....

    Why do people refuse to learn from history?

    What a waste of time. Since there's no specific law regulating how much jewelry can be worn, of how fancy a car can be driven, exactly what's supposed to happen after the police are given a ring?

    It's just like the Miller beer commercial I saw last night. The delivery drivers saw that the rich people were drinking Miller, so they went down and took it from the rich and redistributed it to the people in the crowd.

    They want everyone to think rich = bad

    They need "bling controll" just as they have "knife controll" and "gun controll." In fact, if you are driving a real nice looking Benz, you should be placed on a watch list.

    They'd save a whole lot of time if they just went ahead and moved everyone to collective farms wearing matching uniforms ... you know, like Pol Pot did.
