Boys in Blue

I couldnt help but laugh to myself the other day when I saw that West Midlands police were sending postcards to 700 people believed to be responsible for committing more than 47,000 crimes in the region in the last 12 months.

The postcard has a picture of Birmingham jail and says "Wish you were here".

Very good officers. I see what you've done there.

I was also a little bemused, because to send a postcard to someone you have to know their address, and if you know their address then you know where they live.

Wouldnt it just be easier to nip round and arrest them?
