There are no police in manchester,its just an illusion. Every day there are only a handful of cops parading o each shift,even less at night. They rush from area to area to support eachother along with a few unpaid specials and some PCSO’s. The chances of detection are slim and the chances of conviction,even slimmer. Most crimes are closed due to no suspect identified/insuficient evidence.
The crooks know all of this. The public dont,,they think there are loads of coppers out there just like in the old days but in fact, its the wild west.
To be honest when have you seen coppers patrolling the streets take PCSOs on bikes out of the equation what have you got?
