Let me draw your attention to a report posted in the Belfast Telegraph by a very very disillusioned police officer! I dont know if hyperlinks are
allowed so i have altered the http to hxxp so cut and paste and read what someone on the front line has to say....
Basically, as you will read, the problem is the hordes of people - yes you know the ones - that are utterly opposed to law and order on both the
Catholic and Protestant side of the divide, have whinged and bitched for so long, about the need to reduce police (so hopefully the american's who
usually interfere in the simple running of Northern Ireland will pressure the authorities to employ as police the poor downtrodden unemployed persons
who used to be in jail for terrorist acts) that quite simply there aren't enough to go round. I bet you neverthought of that slant?
As we now say - the public have the police service they deserve.
I may sound bitter but i have a unique insight. Imagine the scenario - poor Sammy or Brendan, spends his day throwing rocks, bricks, petrol bombs and
even for good measure, a few 9mm bullets at the police. What a good day had by all - but what's this? his car has had a window smashed.... who does
he call - yes thats correct, the police. Who does he condemn for the slow response due to the numbers injured and the simple lack of personnel to call
out? the Police.
There is a war out there and its going on below the noses of every major world leader who likes to be seen as a neutral. There is a war that cannot be
fought against because of the lack of "balls" at the top of the ladder, brought on by fear and condemnation by the people who hate the police.
Auntie Nuala loves to small the scent of a police officer caught in her departments sights. Shots are fired at police and military personnel. Bullets
are lodged in the armour of a vehicle. People in fear of their lives return fire. Whats the first cry??? " thats heavy handed!" Who is the first
person to launch an investigation? The Police Ombudsman.
In england, a poor police officer was stabbed by a muslim terrorist who had been arrested. The nations reply - sympathy. In Northern Ireland, a police
officer gets smashed on the head by a rock - what do we hear? silence.
We are part of the united Kingdom and as such, we need the people to get behind us as much as we got nehind Her Majesties forces in their wars. We
need the people in power to allow the shackles to be taken off the police and let them go out and arrest people for crimes, not pacify the leaders of
organisations by asking their permission. What we need is for people who are arrested for a crime be tried and convicted. We need a system that
doesn't allow the criminal to say "yes i did it" but get off on a technicality due to some officer not handcuffing him to the front. Its true
people. The lawyers admits the offence but argue on technicalities. Human rights they call it. Human Wrongs i see it.
Basically, the Law is an ass and the powers that be need to wake up and work with the senior police to sort out the abortion that my country has
