IS anyone actually surprised at this?
Entry standards and criteria, to all public services have lowered.
Our leaders have put in place all kinds of laws and rule that go against the grain of common sense and work in favour of the criminal..
A backlash against PC creep is manifesting itself, by higher crime rates, more hate and fear, and less public order.
Our leaders pontificate and offer sympathetic mewings, they promise that a think tank of academics and policemen will have some tea and buns and a think and lo it shall come to pass that all will be well in Swiss Tony's garden..
They're are a bunch of spineless w4nkers, who're afraid of getting the in the poo for making a wrong decision (so don't).
I DID not like Thatcher or the cesspool of upperclass twits the Tory Party... would they have put up with this bollox?
Not to detract from the issue...look at the state of the armed forces.
Did anyone see Demolition Man?
The article reflects public prejudice and the ineffectiveness of the police 'spin machine' A friend,who was a senior police officer until retiring recently(of DCC rank) remarked that any senior policeman seeking promotion(who is on The Home Office list),has to show positive PC attitudes.Things like Herts police 'investigating' racist remarks on BB,using valuable CID resources,are,he says,symptomatic of the problem.The problem? Terrible leadership at the top of the police! Like the Army look at a good unit and it has a good CO!!
cop have to fil in reams and reams of paperwork drunk hit me cops nicked drunk he was out on the streets before paperwork was done
not that he should have be held more than over night but surely it' should'nt take nearly 8hours to process one punchy drunk
Last Summer my son started his second year at uni. Waking up the first morning in his newly found accommodation he found two guys in the house. He managed to get rid of them but found later that some of his kit was missing. He went to the Police station and reported it.
An hour or so later, the same two guys came into the house with 4 mates and while 2 of them were battering the carp out of my son, the others proceeded to empty the house of all its contents into a van waiting outside.
While this was happening my son dialled 999 and told the "emergency services" what was happening. The response? Scene of Crimes turned up 45 minutes later and the first actual policeman turned up an hour after that. He said he needed to interview my son but didn't have time. He was eventually interviewed over the phone 2 weeks later. Since then nothing has happened.
Do I believe the article. Fcuk yeah. So does my brother-in-law who believes his decision to join the Police was the worst decision he has ever made.
