CPSO's statnding around doing nothing as they have as much power as you and I but still get paid for it. I can imagine the situation.
CPSO1 "Door looks like its been broken down"
CPSO2 " Yup"
CPSO1 "Someone better call the Police"
CPSO2 "We are in Lewes, No chance of that happening"

The fact that the thief is also bound to be a country music lover should narrow it down, should eliminate anyone under the age of 60!

Well trigger, I must say I was one of many people who called 999 last night when this happened and police arrived 3 minutes later and spent considerable time searching the area and taking details. They were prob so quick as it was tea and biccy time at the station but none the less they were on the ball last night.
Don't think having a nice shiny apple computer on show for all helps.

There were police in Lewes town centre for the "diversity debate", so they were probably delighted to have something less stupid to do. l've seen heavy police presence three times in Lewes the past year - the march of the local regiment, November 5th, and this. Apart from anything else, they must find it demeaning and pointless to police things that don't need policing.

You are joking? Why? Did Smith arrange it for the publicity?

I do hope the police present represented every possible ethnic background otherwise DJ Smiffy will do his tank!

Local and MC - crass comments about the Mac. So it is their fault they got got broken into because of the Mac? It is the criminal's fault not the shop keepers.

You're probably right Mystic - on the other hand I bet you don't leave your valuables on show in your front room and the door unlocked just because it'll be the criminal's fault if they're stolen.

I am sure that the shop door was locked. Shops can contains valuable goods anyway irrespective of a Mac. If there was not a Mac on show you will probably say that the shop should not have CDs or instruments on view!

Asked in the shop today. Nothing was stolen. The door was broken, though the lock held. The alarm went off and the oiks scarpered. The computer is no longer left in the shop.

Good. Can't quite understand why asking if they stole the mac should have raised your ire so Mr Mog.
I imagine they didn't try to break into the Red Cross shop?

Hello all, firstly thank you for your concern and good will. Jamie and I have worked day and night to get the shop up and running and have been so happy by all the lovely people coming in to wish us well. We were exhausted and getting ready for an early night when the police called us on Tuesday evening and to be honest the news of the break-in attempt was a real kick in the teeth! when you try so hard to build something, put all your energy and savings into starting up a business, it is really hard to except that someone thinks they can just come along and break it and steal from it!
I would like to say this - the police were brilliant, quick to be there and carried out a thorough follow-up the next day. The neighbours were amazing, helping to clean up, offering us tea and snacks or a warm place to wait for help - really heart warming - thank you neighbourhood. The final thing I would like to say that suggesting it was our fault for having a Mac is not fair or practical - all shops by their nature are full of valuables, the victim should not be blamed for the crime.
Once again thank you for your support, please come in a say hello, Stevie

Have you any idea what good work the Police do with regard to diversity ??
I suspect not, you sit there and comment on something you have no idea about.
Do you know what the "Diversity" work they do comprises of, or how much of it is done in their own time unpaid.
You are a fool.

We will have to have a new door made to measure as it is such an old building you don't get these "off the peg" and it will take at least 3 weeks so we have decorated the boarded up door to keep it all looking nice for everybody and so we don't have to feel sad every time we arrive at work to open up shop.

I'm not sure he was slagging off the police for their lack of diversity as much as saying that the police might have been grateful to leave an event they were policing that evidently did not require any policing, i.e. the Lewes diversity debate, the non-event at which local self-promotionalist David James Sick was talking?
I might be wrong. It's not unknown. He might be wrong too and the police their to attend the event rather than police it.
