The Police Really Do Have Nothing Better to do

"Lord Alan Sugar has been investigated by police after he was accused of posting a racist tweet.

The Apprentice star posted a picture of a crying Chinese child dressed in a watermelon costume and joked: "The kid in the middle is upset because he was told off for leaving the production line of the iPhone 5."

 

Nichola Szeto, from Liverpool, was offended by the reference to the Asian factories where the phones are made and put in a complaint to police.

 

She was then contacted by Merseyside Police and went to a Liverpool station to make a statement.

The force's specialist hate crime investigation team decided that the tweet should be classed as a "hate incident", although no crime had taken place.

 

A police spokesman said: "Merseyside Police can confirm officers received a complaint in relation to the tweet sent on the evening of Sunday September 30.

 

"The communication has been examined by the force's specialist hate crime investigation team and at this time it has been recorded as a hate incident and no criminal offences have taken place.

"Officers from the specialist team will be contacting the person who made the initial complaint to discuss this."

 

And you wonder why there is no confidence in the cops these days

Can you imagine the stink and shouts of 'cover up', if the police hadn't followed it up.

 

Happy days

 If her first contact at the Police Station had told her to bugger off and grow up he would have received a round of applause from everyone who is sick to the back teeth of numpties like her.

Harry, the police these days seem to be a far cry from the days when you pounded the streets. Back then, a clip round the ear and a telling off were fine and did the job. Police seemed to have more common sense about them and had more leeway to be able to know when somebody needed telling off or areresting. these days it is all about either money (lets fine someone for something attitude) or about appeasing the Politically Correct brigade.)

 

I found this photo of two British Muslim policewomen....

Surely the idea of a uniform is that it is "uniform" and not to be altered to suit. Yet again, another public institution appears to be bowing to the tyranny of political correctness — bending over backwards to accommodate certain individuals, some of whom are quite unaccommodating of western values....Why is it important for the police to have hijab-wearing policewomen in the first place?

 

the Qur’an does not mandate Muslim women to wear the hijab and If anything, the hijab is a political statement and a symbol of fundamentalism and should not be encouraged and certainly not by the Police

 

UKIP are going to have a field day if they are allowed onto the platform of the party leaders debates before the next election

Baz.

No-one regrets what has happened to the police service more than I do, but the world has changed around them.  Cuff someone round the ear and they would have you in court.

At the risk of boredom -an extract from my police memoirs, which in no  way shape or form could happen today thanks to people 'knowing their rights"; police brutality; The press is no longer as discreet as they used to be; litigation; home office decrees rather that what stayed within 4 walls; or the discreetness of the old borough watch committee who were as deaf as they chose to be.

 

"One night, I had to separate two men who were fighting in the street.  One of them, who considered he was the innocent party in the dispute, went down to the police station and complained that i had been too rough with him.  He was received at  the front door by the Inspector, who made it quite clear that if he had not departed the police station in 10 seconds time, he would be locked up for being drunk and disorderly.  In the old days you would always be backed up if you acted in good faith."

 

Nowadays the Inspector would lose his job and i would have been the subject of a full scale enquiry.

 

Lastly, on the same tack, I dealt with hundreds of road accidents, I never heard of whiplash in any of them.  Nowadays?  The world has changed with our consent, and there is no going back.

 

Happy days

Baz by Western values what do you mean, are their Western values that all Westerners could agree on, we all have are own values ?

 

you amaze me at times.... why pick on that phrase? Personally I would say that in the context it was written above; Western values do not include women police officers wearing burkas and looking like the baddies in the movie Ghost....

 

 

and as I said, Why is it important for the police to have hijab-wearing policewomen in the first place? Their holy book does not insist on it; it is a form of suppression imposed on women by their "superior" men..... it isn't a western value if you wish to look at it that way. They don't have to wear them. It would be like a punk rocker joining up and insisting on being allowed to have purple spiky hair. The police wouldn't allow that even though that isn't compulsory either

I'm pretty sure that no police force would allow any officer to wear a conspicuous crucifix as part of their uniform.
