The Ineffectual Blue Line....

Police were pelted with stones - and one officer hit in the eye with a drinks can - as 50 yobs gathered to watch teenage girls fight.
The two schoolgirls arranged to meet in Limeside in Oldham on Tuesday night, with huge numbers of teens taking to the streets to watch.
Residents near to Limeside Road contacted police after seeing youths gathering near their homes. GMP said 10 officers attended and attempted to disperse the group before being subjected to a tirade of vile abuse. Sergeant Paul Archer said the culprits are being sought.
...facing the inevitable result of the indulgence of the No Consequences Generation.
One youth was arrested and charged with a public order offence.
One. Out of 50. Even those educated under Blair's mantra of 'education, education, education' can easily see those odds are in their favour.

Expect more, much, much more, of this in 2018.

Boris wasn't so daft when he bought water cannon trucks. If only the SJW-browbeaten wimps hadn't prevented their wider deployment. Obviously the Ian Blairs & Hyphen-Howes would be speechless with indignation, but I bet Plod-in-the-street would be quite enthusiastic.

Me too.

Funny how those 'Police Interceptors' type shows always give the impression the police are up for a ruck, when the reality seems to be so very different...
