What Do Liverpool Cops Do All Day?

liverpool bobby2 What Do Liverpool Cops Do All Day?

Poor Robbie Keane has joined the growing list of Liverpool players to be burgled over the not too distant past. He, along with at least six other players (now past and present) have had their homes burglarized in the Liverpool area. This makes me ask, after the first three, why wouldn’t the police force of Liverpool have taken a more proactive approach of finding the thief/thieves?

According to the police TV dramas I know, some sort of stake-out should be set up across the street of the possible next victim.  Given that many of these players are multi-millionaires and probably live in a large home with expansive property, getting close might prove difficult. How can these homes not be set up with alarms or a security team of their own? Again, after a few guys are hit, wouldn’t the rest recognize a pattern and go to greater lengths to prevent such an event? Still, I wonder what the police make of all this…

Looking at Keane’s burglary closer, it seems to have taken place in a HOTEL PENTHOUSE SUITE all of places! Even a two-star hotel has some type of security, so you would think a hotel with a penthouse has all sorts of guys walking around with wires coming out of their ear.

Last December, Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard’s home was burglarized. Keane’s place is the first this season. According to a report on The Guardian website, “The club put in place extra security for its stars and Keane is the first to be targeted since Gerrard’s home was raided.” Wow, what a novel and original thought! I have to wonder why that thought only occurred to them after FIVE OTHER GUYS got tagged. The only thing the coppers said about the raid on Keane’s house was that they “don’t believe it is linked with the others. It is almost like a spur of the moment thing and doesn’t look like a pre-planned operation.” But I didn’t see any further comment on what they plan to do to prevent more occurrences.

After seeing the post on EPL Talk regarding the surrounding neighborhood by Anfield stadium, I understand that cracking a case regarding a few items being stolen from a rich footballer might not be high on their “to-do” list, and these players can probably take care of themselves (with regards to security). Though this post can mostly be taken tongue-in-cheek, I do hope no one gets hurt during one of these “raids” because the police weren’t available to tend to this apparent spree.

    Seems well times when they perps know that they are going to be away for matches. This time it was internationals, but I remember Reina was robbed right before the Champion's League final. I think Crouch was robbed too but I don't remember when.

  2. MRB says:

    You're right. According to reports I saw, the players were away either on international duty or Champion's League.You might with that sort of pattern, authorities could be on a greater lookout the next few times, given that the schedule is posted everywhere.

  3. Paul says:

    Seven Liverpool players have now been robbed while they were away. The criminals are clearly targeting players from this club. Main rivals? ManU and the Blue. It doesn't take a genius to expect the crooks to be fans of one of these clubs. It's not as if there are no other extremely rich players in the area.

  4. Shakira Graham says:

    It's just vermin fans way of saying how much they love a player. Either that or for new players its a way of saying welcome to liverpool by thier oh so wonderful fans.

    Shakira Graham:

    If you wish to make comments regarding Liverpool fans please learn to spell, or crawl back into your Mancunian rat hole, ( this is how you spell their). And we do have the best fans in the world.

    The crimes will never be solved as the Merseyside Police force is completely staffed by Evertonians and Mancunians. With a Chief Constable from Sheffield.

    Are you seriously suggesting that the pudly po-po's should have been on stake-out from last December until last week (when Keane got burgled)? Even limiting the shifts to when players were at away matches would be a budget breaker. The players themselves should have private security companies that go on high alert when their clients travel, and they probably all do. This Keane incident is a hotel room – not really his residence – that's being given press because it can be construed as a continuation of a pattern, even though it's much more likely a one-off. I'm sure if/when he relocates from London to Liverpool, he'll have the same security measures as his teammates most certainly have. I've heard that when he's recruiting players Rafa has to throw an extra few quid a week into the pay packet to allow them to cover anticipated security expenditures. ;-)

    Bill, Shandy got burgled and he's an Everton player, the RedStealers supporting (?) dog went along with the cars.

  8. Shakira Graham says:

    Wow Liverpoool supporters getting touchy about thier own fans (most likely) stealing from thier players, who would have thought it. Just fyi I'm a Derby supporter not a Manchester United supporter.
