A student made a police report that a teacher used the word ‘fuck’ in their discussion and felt offended. Would he go further to make a magistrate complaint that he was being threatened by the teacher? Would the next person go to make a police report that his neighbour stared at him so he can also make a magistrate report?
My earlier article on the most serious crime in Sin City was sexual offences and that that was a good thing. Now it seems that the offences or crimes in the City is about four letter words and intimidation because someone said ‘Fuck you’ or stares at you. And the poor magistrate would have to call his court into action because the complainant would engage a willing lawyer to file charges against such ‘serious’ and spurious accusations. And mind you, with enough money, lawyers will be ingenious in framing all kinds of charges for the most incredible reasons even if the complainant is a nut case. They could pay to bring the justice system to bear on you.
I think both the police force and the courts would need to ramp up their manpower and resources to entertain these ‘serious’ complaints by the people, real or unreal, as long as they claimed to be threatened, to fear, and willing to pay the legal fees. The police may need a full contingent of officers to be deployed in all the Neighbourhood Police Posts to deal with this crisis. There may be a need to build a separate magistrate court to handle such cases.
The good thing is that all the serious crimes have somehow disappeared. Or maybe the police force is so bogged down by fuck complaints that they have no time to spare for anything else. This is as good as people happily calling for emergency ambulance services for toothache or morning sickness or when they lost their pet dog. Maybe the police force is now so people friendly that everyone is feeling so comfortable to drop by to have a chat and to make a complaint of whatever sick nature.
