Police finally go full loony tunes.

The Daily Mail is currently running one of its fairly nasty "anti- Charles and Camilla" campaigns.

Glancing through the bile they've printed, its fairly hard not to conclude that this construes "hate" under the legal definition. If you apply the "what if the subjects were black?" test, then it would most certainly become "a "hate crime".

"Hate crime" is all very asymmetric, isn't it?

Most of the perpetrators appear to be white and/or male and/or straight and/or politically anywhere right of "hard Left" and, if you reverse any of those polarities, the crime magically vanishes and becomes not worthy of investigation.
 
Note that the usual suspects always claim hate crimes are rising, but never who is committing them, so if you report a hate crime against a white straight male it will only be used to prove the opposite is happening.
 
Just days after the MET issues a public warning that anyone who uses language that anyone else interprets, or construes as a hate crime, will have it investigated as a hate crime, even if it's not a criminal act....this:
Police: Are black knife deaths being ignored?

A complaint from the MET is that the wider community are not outraged enough at the antics of a certain sector of the ethnic community and their apparently disproportionate use of knives. The MET Police Assistant Commissioner didn't/couldn't/wouldn't use the word Black himself in the interview to camera on tonight's news, so the newsreader had to frame it for him, by telling us its "the black community" he's talking about, before showing the footage!

So in one breath warning everyone not to say anything that could be construed as hate, even if its not! Then in the next wondering and complaining out loud that law abiding members of the public are not vociferous enough in their condemnation of this activity?
I can't work out if it's
a) A trap to help get the arrest rate up?
b) He hasn't thought MET policy through and the left hand doesn't know what the right hands up to?
c) Jeremy Beadle's alive and well, hiding behind his desk for the biggest wind up ever!

My bold.

Except that he did.
 
Perhaps, just perhaps, plod needs to improve its arrest statistics.

It's not always easy to catch a burglar after the fact, and tracking down a clever burglar takes a lot of police hours, so it's just a possibility that plod is inventing easy to solve "crimes" to bring its crime solving statistics up to a level HMG can boast about. I seem to remember they tried a similar move years ago, arresting somebody for insulting a police horse.... backfired somewhat :D

'Insulting' words crime which made it illegal to call a police horse 'gay' is to be changed

Just hypothesising.....

The most nauseating thing about that entire incident was that at the same time as the gay horse baloney people from the religion of peace were holding up placards like this:

Blatant double standards.

Blatant double standards.
Absolutely, apart from those that were arrested and convicted of criminal offences.

It may be of interest to note that this one

Rahman, a 24-year-old from the Tottenham area of north London, made a speech calling for British soldiers in Iraq to come home in body bags.
Is again inside, having been convicted as a co-defendant of Anjem Choudhury, and getting five years.
 
But it is all shit.

'Physical and spiritual' leave for police

That's just pure bollocks. I Don't know anyone who can actually take their rest days. Not because they are grabbing OT, but because the days are cancelled and people worked until they break.

Well, except at HQ I suppose. There were lots of nice office jobs at HQ. They probably get two days for spiritual wellbeing, and a bit of blanket time in the nap break out room too.

My bold, I saw 8 signs with several dozen perpetrators all calling for violence on the photo & yet only 4 of the scum sent to jail and no reports of any moves to deport them back to a country that approves such a crime. So once again our less than robust (unless its against people like Tommy Robinson or "Britain First" leaders who have been jailed for highlighting Muslim child rapists) legal system seems scared to act to stamp out this.
 
Good for them. This is in stark contrast to the Metropolitan Police, who cunningly deleted somewhere around 8 - 10 rest days of the response teams by artfully reducing certain early shifts by an hour, back in 2015.

"You work the same average number of hours," they said. An hour here or there is nothing, but we all feel the loss of those rest days. Naturally the federation objected, as did every officer below the rank of Insp. Naturally it made not a blind bit of difference.

7 days on, 3 days off; ending on a night shift and starting on an early is a killer, as it's effectively 2 1/2 days off and that's not enough, not since there is never any down time in each of those 9 or 10 hour shifts anymore. (call volume, wider remit, fewer cops, amount of officers borrowed for stupid aid etc, etc, ad infinitum).

Before you ask, yes the architect of this monumental middle finger aimed squarely at frontline cops also got promoted and is quite a high flier. Fantastic resource management, after all. Said architect also did the same to the admittedly crappier-in-the-first-place Neighbourhoods shift pattern.
 
Police shut down stall in case it offends homophobes, rather than arrest the homophobes who are committing an offence by making homophobic complaints, they stop the people who are doing nothing unlawful because standing about being all homosexual and stuff could provoke homophobes.

When did the police stop protecting a citizens lawful right to go about their lawful business ?

"The architect of this monumental middle finger aimed squarely at frontline cops also got promoted and is quite a high flier." Would it be fair to say 'I doubt he cares much about retention... With that management centric rooster'

Excepting the gender of said person, yes. Officers' welfare wasn't the most important consideration for sure!
