Police sensitivity towards criminals

'Ello! 'Ello! Ello!. What 'ave we got 'ear then? The police not arresting Islamic criminals in Ramandan? That will cheer up Osama. From the Guardian:

Police in Manchester have been told not to arrest Muslims wanted on warrants at prayer times during the holy month of Ramadan.

An internal email listing prayer times was sent to officers in the metropolitan division asking them not to make planned arrests during those periods for reasons of religious sensitivity, Greater Manchester Police confirmed.

Some officers are said to have been angered by the instruction.
