The British Home Office Home Office is like our FBI. The following is a quote from the BBC:
A Home Office minister has suggested people “distract” potential criminals while waiting for police to intervene.
Asked by Jeremy Vine what people should do when confronted by anti-social behaviour, Tony McNulty MP agreed that jumping up and down could help.
I am speechless. Any excuse to prevent citizens from defending theirselve’s is a good excuse.
