Can someone who knows more about the law than me,explain why a gang of Eastern Europeans can jemmy a back door and take over a house while the guy is out shopping? The police and council[well they would wouldn't they} say they are powerless! Surely forcing a lock on a door is breaking and entering? end of! there can be more more discussion. The law is clear so WTF are the police doing not to charge them and if they take as much as a DVD it's burglary or housebreaking I think. I'm going on holiday soon and if there are Easterners in my house when I return well! I have 5 sons and the squatters are going out or going down, my son's guarantee it. I'll deal with the fallout later. What kind of country have we become? Can someone tell me why it is not breaking and entering when a lock is forced?
