Miss Dick said she would not to be cowed by political correctness, adding that crime victims had told her they want to see police ‘get out there and do more’.That's some chutzpah, right there! I can only assume the interviewer began laughing incredulously at that point, forcing her to admit that maybe this was a tough one to swallow....
She admitted that officers probably did ‘slightly lose confidence’ and were ‘fearful they might get into trouble, or they might not be supported if they had a complaint’.Because they won't be. Since the rest of your interview was a desperate attempt not to name the elephant in the room, but to find other 'causes' to blame.
How about social media?
Scotland Yard commissioner Cressida Dick said gangs were using online platforms to glorify street violence and show off ‘with weapons’.No, not buying that? Hmmmm....
Hey, I've got it! It's that devil music they listen to, right?
Miss Dick also raised concerns about the violent undercurrent in some music, especially grime.
She warned that it could lead vulnerable youngsters to think it was ‘an admirable thing to be talking about violence and people perpetrating it’.Ah, they love that word 'vulnerable', don't they?
