See, American cops don’t have the patent on lazy incompetance

dog-poker.jpgFYI, across the pond, a “pensioner” is a retired bloke:

A pensioner who went to a police HQ over a burglary yards away was sent home - because 14 cops there were playing poker.
Graham Hall, 69, was told the building was shut - and a guard gave him a fridge magnet with a non-emergency number. The former financial adviser said: “I’m flabbergasted. You can’t even report a crime at police HQ.
“A crime was committed on their doorstep but not one person could be bothered to come out to talk to me because they were gambling. They would rather play cards than catch criminals.”
Graham dialled the fridge magnet number and was told an officer would ring back. He has heard nothing a week on.
