Tesco’s chief executive has called for a change in the law to make abuse or violence towards retail workers an offence across the UK.

Writing in the Mail on Sunday, Ken Murphy said the supermarket chain has offered body-worn cameras to members of staff who need them after seeing physical assaults rise by a third in a year.

He said Tesco has invested £44m in four years on security measures including door access systems, protection screens and digital radios, as well as the cameras, but called for more to be done against offenders.

“Money spent on making sure people are safe at work is always well spent,” he said. “But it should not have to be like this. Crime is a scourge on society and an insult to shoppers and retail workers.

What has happened to our society that this is needed?  So sad.

Law makers in the Western world have decided that tax paying law abiding citizens are the actual screw ups,and hold them hostage to pay for food, medical,ect for those who care nothing for actual society itself.

It's 1984,and we best enjoy it ;)

Lefty progressive politics is about taring down everything while being ignorant of why things were that way.

It started about 100 years ago.
