People shouldn't, says police spokesman
Police are asking people not to after a number of high profile ones in the recent. Chief Inspector Brian Mostly said that despite the rise in cases of it, over 48% of them had been found not to, which is not really it at all. In fact, figures suggest that it's probably much higher, with only one in five stating that they never would, even if they had been asked to, which they weren't, so it didn't matter.
Speaking to our reporter the Chief said, "All too probably we hear of homeowners and it's not really acceptable. We recommend that if you are approached, you shouldn't, and people who refuse to heed this advice very likely should be. I've been a police thing for over twenty, and in all that time I have never once, except maybe one occasion when I absolutely, positively had to. But even then, I put it down again straight away. I hope this clears thing up."
