One of the reasons that CPS is so reluctant to prosecute people is that their pay is based on their conviction rate just as SMT and Chiefs can get bonuses if more old people and children are locked up for doing very little and Pcs are running round after crappy clear ups instead of being used to sort out the real crims.
