This BBC article was recently brought to my attention. www.bbc.co.uk...
It includes these two opposing statements.
, Mrs May said "diversity profiles" showed no force had a black and minority ethnic representation reflecting its local population.
Mrs May . . . quoted data suggesting . . . Durham . . . did not have a single black officer.
Det Con Waheed Mughal, chair of Durham Black and Asian Police Association, said: "I can confirm that the force does have a British Black
Caribbean officer who serves in the north of the county as well as at least 19 other black and minority ethnic officers."
Where does Theresa may get her facts from? Obviously not the Durham Black and Asian Police Association.
The Met Assistant Commissioner also questioned Theresa May's figures. The false facts presented are part of the bankers/government/media war against
the traditional Office of Constable.
The BBC claim. "Although a dispute about the precise figures on ethnic diversity may have blunted Theresa May's message, the broad point she is
making remains: for police to have the confidence of the public they must be more racially representative of the communities they serve."
It isn't the dispute that blunts her message, it's the obvious lies.
We can't deny that a truly representative police presence would improve our society. The question is how do we encourage people who already experience
the particular problems associated with being a minority, to then take on being kicked, punched, spat on, bitten, threatened with knives, guns, dirty
needles and sometimes cars, verbally abused, regularly lied to, misrepresented by the media, attacked by the government, infiltrated by spooks,
working around the serious criminals within their own organisation, being worn out and disorientated by tortuous shifts, and then expected to be
efficient when no-one on the spot can handle the situation so they call 999. When they can't handle a situation no one else can handle we call them
How can we encourage minorities to join the police?
Or would we be better using our energy nurturing and overseeing a modern, improved policing system.
Don't forget to vote. www.aboutmyvote.co.uk...
Theresa's scriptwriters may 'forget' to tell her
to tell you how much this can affect your control over your local policing.
What happened to the 2012 vote?
"The turnout – at below 15%, across the 41 forces in which elections were held – was lower than many pundits predicted and represents the lowest
turnout on record in a national poll."
Wherever Theresa May's facts come from isn't worth going. She claimed to be disappointed by the 2012 turnout. I bet she was disappointed that some of
us took an interest. She won't want you to know you can make a positive difference in policing by voting, or standing in the Commissioner elections.
