Knife crime: Theresa May 'not listening' says ex-police chief - BBC News
Speaking on BBC Radio 4's World at One, Lord Stevens - who was commissioner of the Met between 2000 and 2005 - criticised Mrs May's handling of crime and policing as PM and when she was home secretary.

He said the Home Office had not been listening for the past five or six years.

"All you got from the Home Office, and in particular the home secretary at the time, now the prime minister, was 'our reforms are working'.

As government cuts affect police numbers, Reading is feeling the pinch. With one officer claiming there are ‘very serious jobs, for instance stabbings, that we cannot get to’, Thames Valley police have turned to a group of Christian volunteers to help them police the town centre on Friday and Saturday nights. As well as keeping an eye out for trouble and known criminals, the Street Pastors care for people in no fit state to get home, and even run a taxi service for people too drunk for most drivers to accept

Revealed: legal aid cuts forcing parents to give up fight for children | Law | The Guardian
Ex-minister says cuts went too far, as Guardian investigation shows wide-ranging impact [...] “draconian”. Protracted austerity since 2012 has reduced funding by about £950m a year in real terms, causing an alarming rise in the number of people forced to represent themselves. [...] Prevented hundreds of thousands of people from pursuing justice in other areas such as housing, debt, employment, clinical negligence, immigration, welfare payments and education.

Sexual assaults and arson are among the crimes that are being ‘screened out’ within a day of being reported [...] Screening out is the process whereby the Met decides which offences to stop investigating after a primary assessment. In October 2017, in a move denounced as a “green light to thieve”, the Met said it would screen out more investigations, saying that it would end investigations into many reports of crimes, including burglaries, thefts and assaults, where there was judged to be little prospect of identifying a suspect.

Police custody deaths hit 10-year high, with experts citing austerity | UK news | The Guardian
Police custody deaths have hit their highest level in a decade with police, campaigners and experts warning that austerity and a crisis in mental health services have driven the figure up.

A total of 23 people died in or after detention in 2017-18, according to official figures released by the police watchdog, up from 14 people the previous year.

More than half had mental health problems, according to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC), who said the conditions included psychosis, depression and self-harm or suicidal tendencies. Eighteen people had drug and or alcohol issues.

Underfunded justice system 'crumbling', top criminal barrister says | Law | The Guardian
[pure rational rationing (workload) decisions out of necessity - by individuals, forced upon them by Austerity decisions] Failures to disclose evidence in rape prosecutions are a sign of the “dystopian disaster” engulfing the criminal justice system that has been caused by chronic government underfunding, the head of the criminal bar has warned. Angela Rafferty QC, who represents criminal barristers in England and Wales, criticised ministers for trying to promote the justice system as “a national asset” at the time of Brexit when in reality “the fabric of the court estate [is] crumbling”. [...] The Law Society, which represents solicitors across England and Wales, has launched legal action against the Ministry of Justice for cutting fees for defence lawyers, who have to examine increasingly large volumes of material recovered from mobile phones and laptops.

What will cost more than lifting the public sector pay cap? Not lifting it | Faiza Shaheen | Opinion | The Guardian
[finding efficiencies ... ] Let’s start with costs of recruitment and retention. This is a big one. Job advertising isn’t cheap and new recruits take time to settle in. Last year, a study found there had been a 61% rise in advertising spend since 2010 in secondary schools alone, costing £56m in 2015. Shortages in the health service mean NHS Trusts are paying millions every month to agency and bank nurses to ensure there are adequate levels of staff on wards.

Stress-related leave has also increased in the public sector as workers are understandably getting run down working in understaffed schools and hospital wards. This is just staff – what about the costs to our children of being in classes too big for them to maximise their learning or to a sick individual who has an operation delayed?

The IPPR believes the government will not be able to hit its savings target, even allowing for proposed budget cuts, at the same time as meeting spending promises made by George Osborne when he was chancellor. [...] when the Treasury announced a new new drive for “efficiency savings” earlier this week, the only spending commitments that were reaffirmed were Conservative manifesto pledges to protect the core schools budgets and the NHS; and a subsequent promise to meet the Nato target of spending 2% of GDP on defence.

Barack Obama in Dallas bei Trauerfeier für getötete Polizisten: Ein Land, zwei Welten - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Dallas hat Abschied von den fünf ermordeten Polizisten genommen. Bei der Trauerfeier versuchte US-Präsident Obama, die Nation zu trösten. Doch selbst der Meisterredner erkannte: Worte allein helfen nicht mehr. [...] Denn die Ereignisse von Dallas, Baton Rouge und Falcon Heights und die bitteren Demonstrationen überall haben gezeigt: Ein tiefer Riss zieht sich durch die USA, emotional, gesellschaftlich, politisch. Ein Land - zwei Welten.

"Die tiefsten Verwerfungslinien unserer Demokratie wurden entblößt, wenn nicht noch weiter aufgerissen", sagt Obama über die fatalen Schüsse auf Schwarze und Polizisten. Man frage sich, ob sich "Amerikas Rassenfragen je überwinden" ließen. Ob stattdessen nicht das Undenkbare eintrete: "Dass die Mitte nicht mehr zusammenhält und die Dinge noch schlimmer werden."
