Does this make snitchin’ cool?
May 13, 2009
A new Crimestoppers campaign in Gloucestershire has been launched encouranging citizens to call police at the first sight of anyone wearing too much bling without any visible signs means support. (Is this the right thing to do???)
Daily Mail reports:
“In the latest example of innovative policing in Britain, the Gloucestershire force is encouraging members of the public to report people wearing too much ‘bling’ during the recession.
They are also urging people to shop anyone who drives flash cars or buys expensive items without the apparent means to afford them during the credit crunch.
The campaign, run with Crimestoppers, was launched by the force today under the title ‘Too Much Bling? Give Us a Ring’ with the aim of cracking down on those who live a lavish lifestyle on the profits of crime”
