Or, They Could Spend Time Catching the Thieves



Police seem determined to keep spreading the story that Pagans braid horses' hair as some part of a ritual.

However hair plaiting is not always a sign of a potential crime, PC Brittain suggested.
"Braiding is also a Pagan ritual - it's not necessarily for theft," she said.
But Dorset Grove Druid Ian Temple denied that there is any connection.
"It isn't a Pagan ritual - there's no evidence that it is," he said.
"There's been a lot of it going on in Dorset over the last couple of years. None of the Pagans I know can find any relation to it - there's no history."


More here.

We've seen this same nonsense before. And, it doesn't help that attention-seekers spread the nonsense.
