I have little expectation that we shall ever recover what we have lost. Thanet is renowned for its high crime rate and police resources are considerably stretched. However, I cannot agree with the implication in your editorial (10 March) that the police were somehow to blame for our small disaster. On the contrary, they deserve praise for the painstaking way they reacted to an incident that must appear very trivial. Isn't it about time we stopped blaming a whole profession when some part of it goes wrong?
