Congratulations to Nanny's ever alert and customer orientated police force.
Last month it was reported that Auzair Khan, a taxi driver, caught red-handed on camera, a thug breaking into his car and using a homemade petrol bomb to destroy it.
Did the police help?
Did they fark!
Mr Khan claims that the police failure to respond forced him to turn detective, to collect evidence against the arsonist himself.
Mr Khan had been fire bombed before, in December in Bradford, therefore he installed a CCTV system outside of his house.
This was as a result of police telling him that there was nothing they could do, they didn't even take a statement from an eye witness who believed he could identify the culprit.
When it happened again on December 20, Mr Khan told the police that he had film, a discarded bottle top possibly bearing the arsonist's finger print and a swab of what he believed was the offender's spit, which may have given police his DNA profile.
Nanny's police, being ever alert and on duty, informed Mr Khan that the evidence could not be collected for a week as the officer "was on holiday."
If only the criminals would take holidays too!
Oddly, only when Mr Khan released the CCTV to his local newspaper, offered a £1,000 reward and put his own appeal for information out did West Yorkshire Police finally send someone round to pick up his "evidence."
A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said an investigating was carried out into the first incident, and described the police response to the second arson as "textbook."
When law abiding citizens lose respect for the forces of law and order, anarchy will ensue.
