I wanted to post this about the tragic case of Tia Sharp, the English 12 year old who it appears was murdered by her grandmothers boyfriend.
I think it's important because it highlights 2 things that are sadly wrong with society today.
1) Disfunctional families - the grandmother was in a relationship with a man who had previously been in a relationship with her daughter (Tias
mother), and despite him having convictions for selling crack coc aine, handling stolen goods, burglary, and attacking someone with a machete,
her family were happy to leave a 12 year old in his care.
2) Disfunctional Police - They searched the house 3 TIMES before finally finding the body on the 4th search. They allowed the grandmothers boyfriend
to disappear, resulting in a frantic manhunt.
It appears they are too afraid to actually act like law enforcement officers in case they offend someone - it's all to politically correct.
Anyway, the reason I posted this was a fantastic piece in the Daily Mail by an ex Police officer who has really I think hammered the nail right on the
head, and lays bare the problems caused by political motivation. I think it's one of the best commentaries on modern policing and society I've ever
