Metal Detectorists Think Police Will Not See Them

How stupid can you be to get caught nighthawking in broad daylight?

Hope the NCMD is as good as its word. Uh-oh:
we recognise that some people thought the language in our statement last week was too strong [...] we are sorry if the tone of our message offended anyone It certainly wasn’t our intention [...] we promise to keep reviewing the situation and, as soon as it’s safe to do so, we’ll update our advice.
Cute. That, folks, is "the recognised voice of Metal Detecting" talking to a load of kids. "Safe" for whom? The individual or society? Where is this "responsibility" now? And when the soft-spoken advice is repealed, do all the members they suspended for not following it get their NCMD membership back? Or did they not actually cancel any memberships at all to avoid hurting somebody's feelings?
