Today will just feature this.
Please read. And then tell me if you too think that a UK Police 'service' that indulges in these practices, more reminiscent of the corrupt old Soviet Union, or some backwater African country run by some despot, is the police force you were brought up to regard as the envy of the world..?
And if you think 'Ah, it's just the bloggers getting stirred up about this stuff, no-one else cares, or takes it seriously', it's not. Others are waking up to the state of our police and criminal justice system, others who reach far more people than this little blog:
There is no country in the world more tolerant than this one. Yet time and again in the past 20 years – and never more so than since the referendum – we have been slandered and smeared.
Political campaigners have used bogus statistics to push their own political and sectarian interests. It is time that people named and shamed the smear-merchants.Sadly, Douglas, to do so is now to invite arrest and harassment by the State.
If the police and criminal justice system actually wanted to foment hatred and contempt for minorities, then do tell me what they'd be doing that's different from what they are doing...
