Why the closures?
I hear on the local traffic news that much of the area round the Forbury Gardens in Reading is still closed off to traffic and pedestrians, 10 days or more after the three murders and woundings.
It was an appalling event and the relatives of the deceased have my condolences, the relatives of the injured have my sympathy.
Police have a suspect in custody. He's been charged. He's appeared in court and been remanded in custody. The police have witnesses..
What are Thames Valley Police hoping to achieve by keeping the park and surrounding streets closed off?
Apart from wasting their resources to “secure the area” to demonstrate to the residents of Reading that the Thames Valley Police are in control of the situation?
What is wrong with Thames Valley Police's senior managers? Are they so worried about their public image that they can't bite the bullet and redeploy their personnel to do something useful, rather than “strutting their stuff”
