The court of public opinion.....

In today’s society some people just don’t want to listen, they don’t want to be told and they certainly don’t want to be forced.

You can just imagine the email that might be sent to all the Officers in your force:

‘Before you arrest someone, you will ask yourself the following questions:

Is this person black? Will you be called a racist?
Is this person a homosexual? Will you be called a homophobe?
Is this person white? Will you be called a racist?
Is this person female? Will you be called sexist?
Is this person male? Will you be called a feminist?
Is this person younger than you? Will you be called ageist?

This list is not exhaustible.’

If she is black, brown, white, pink, yellow, blue, or even a fan of The Backstreet Boys, it doesn’t matter, she committed a crime, she then resisted arrest, she also assaulted police:

‘This proved to be fruitless because as soon as she was released she again tried to grab my genitals and scratch me in the area of my eyes. I struck her again with no visible effect. I now struck her as hard as I was physically able in an attempt to deaden her arm in the bicep and upper shoulder area so that she could be restrained again.’

Next please?

Yesterday you saw something that could effect even the hardest of hearts, a woman holding her child, by the lake, feeding the ducks. The young girl was smiling, her mother was laughing, this made you realise that perhaps it’s not too little, too late, perhaps Ernest Hemmingway was right:

‘The world is a fine place and worth fighting for.’

I'm going to submit a report suggesting we be issued tickle sticks rather than casco's, laughing gas to replace cs, and only those nice pink fluffy handcuffs that you get in Ann Summers. I'm also going to request that I be permanently be double crewed with a member of the IPCC to take the lead in any conflict situations to show me how it should be done!
