Whatever has happened to our police? Why are they so heavy on citizens and soft on criminals?
We no longer have a police force – I believe we have a Politically Correct Police Service dominated by alumni of the Marxist Common Purpose.
In my village we had a policeman in a police house as did the next parish. He knew everyone and who the problem locals were. His children went to our village school. He also was an active participant in the village life. He was a good, honest copper. Of prime importance, he was free to use his ‘common sense’ and expected to do so by his superiors when carrying out his police duties. The urban areas also had ‘beat’ policeman who knew their patch. The police house was then sold and the policeman removed to car duty. This meant that the close personal contact between the policeman and the villagers was broken. The political and police authorities were clearly starting to isolate the police from the public.
They were also dazzled by American methods with officers roaring around in fast cars with ‘blues and twos’ as they erroneously think that such behaviour means that the public will believe they are, therefore, being very active. The BBC closed down the local friendly copper Dixon of Dock Green programme to replace it with Z Cars to big up police in cars. Coincidence?
Sir Robert Peel set up the police to be a ‘shield between the government and the people’. The police were responsible to the citizens not the state. There have been attempts to remove the oath of allegiance to the Queen, although none have been successful.
The aim is to discredit our police so as to get the public to easily accept their replacement with Europol (the EU police force see 2013 – 008) and also replace English Common Law with EU Corpus Juris. Under CJ you can be arrested without evidence and held in custody without charge for an indefinite period and you have to prove your innocence. This is directly opposite to English Common Law where you are innocent until proven guilty. I believe it is the intention of the EU to completely destroy the British police and replace them with Europol and the Eurogendarmerie.
One of the worst things to happen to our police was the mad Macpherson Report that accused the police of ‘institutional racism’. The police probably no more have a racism problem than the rest of society supposedly does. The consequence of that is they are now terrified to apply the law to ‘ethnic minorities’. Certain persons and their solicitors know that and exploit it to the full. It was the influence of the Frankfurt School of thought on that declaration by Macpherson. It is the direct cause of our police allowing the systematic rape of hundreds of little white girls by Muslim men for fear of being called ‘racist’. It is a charter for criminals and their complicit lawyers.
At one time a senior policeman started as a constable progressing up after a few years via a period as desk sergeant to more senior positions. They then began recruiting ‘politically correct’ university graduates to be inserted into the career structure with accelerated and preferential promotion – many of them alumni of what I assert is the Marxist training college Common Purpose, heavily influenced by The Frankfurt School. We now have a police force where many of the senior police have had minimal experience of policing ‘on the streets’ or dealing directly with the public. Common Purpose alumni preferred. (2013 – 004). There is no formal policy statement for this but there are still very many ’good coppers’ who are fully aware that this is happening. The truth and a definite answer for this is difficult as the police constantly circumvent the Freedom of Information Act. Is it in the interests of London that the head of the Met is a Common Purpose alumnus?
It seems to be becoming practice of the police to ‘lose’ or even shred files of investigations into the crimes of the political elite and their chums to prevent later prosecution. Examples here and here.
To be fair to the ‘good coppers’ they are given politically motivated targets that are not in the best interests of the citizens. However there are many who no longer consider they have a duty to the citizenry but to their political masters and themselves.
A major problem for ‘good policing’ is that of ‘targets’ as the police have to achieve these regardless of justice as these targets are often politically motivated. This may be by ‘booking’ motorists for marginal transgressions or not recording crime. The senior officers have their potential for promotion increased by ‘reducing’ crime in their area. This is often achieved by ‘leaning’ on the desk sergeants not to record crime. A street robbery of a mobile phone may be recorded as ‘lost property’ or in the extreme case of Rotherham – there, 1400 little girls were systematically raped by a network of Pakistani men over many years, the police chose to ignore their pleas for help. There was a significant Common Purpose influence there, however. The head of Child Services was Joyce Thacker – a Common Purpose alumnus.
I believe the banning of gun ownership by citizens, but not worrying about gun criminals, is to prevent the possibility of an armed citizens’ uprising.
There is a very good book written by Peter Hitchens that gives the background to the collapse of law and order in the UK – “The Abolition of Liberty.”
The Frankfurt School ethos (2012 – 025) has infiltrated our police and legal system where the Human Rights of the criminal are equal to or greater than those of the victim. Also I believe the victim is considered to be as equally guilty as the criminal, eg a householder catches a young hooligan kicking down his garden fence and marches him to the police station. The response of the police now is to caution the hooligan, release him (the courts will not adequately deal with him and there is virtually no chance of getting any money from him) and put the householder in prison for up to 12 hours without charge for a possible charge of assault on the hooligan. That should teach him a lesson not to bother the police with problems that adversely affect achieving their targets.
The police now concentrate far more on petty motoring offences that raise revenue and tend to give housebreaking, public disorder, street and domestic violence a low priority target. Policing is becoming far more about meeting targets and raising money, rather than pursuing crimes that require time and effort but with no financial income. There are proposals to allow the police to retain the money from fines. The pressure for the police to generate income from ‘crimes’ that do not go to court or with creative arrests will be enormous. You get what you vote for and if you do not vote do not complain.
The new Police Commissioners are very much an unknown quantity. The cost of standing for election is prohibitive for all but political appointees. It is part of the move to separate the police from the public. The £5000 fee to stand and to contact just 100,000 voters with a couple of A5 leaflet and postage about yourself as an Independent candidate could be as much as £50,000. No other information is provided directly to the voters. An Independent candidate’s only hope of getting elected is if he is very wealthy indeed and there is a very small turnout to vote. Now they have been ‘in office’ for a few years, some 50% are under suspicion for malpractice and fraud. I strongly suspect that there is a hidden agenda to prepare our police for political control by Europol thus making them true agents of the state.
There is also PACE, the Police and Criminal Evidence Act of 1984. This seems to have been produced by someone who has never done any actual policing. It has tied the hands of honest policemen and given the distinct advantage to petty criminals. So much so that the police try not to arrest them as they take up so much time to process. There is no box to tick and the police authorities do not want them added to their local crime statistics.
One of the most unsavoury actions is to allow ‘bent coppers’ caught out indulging in severe corruption to take early retirement with their full pension instead of being prosecuted. In the short term this may protect the image of the police. In the long term this leaks out into the public domain. It also encourages other policemen to be corrupt as there are no serious sanctions.
Today they are planning to insert foreigners and those with no policing background into the higher echelons of the police. A former director of a supermarket is now to be a suitable senior decision-making policeman. It looks very like further preparing the British police and public to accept the Corpus Juris EU police to run our police on EU principles and to bypass Habeas Corpus and Magna Carta.
Time will tell.
