agree the riots etc pointless, and people should be prosecuted for breaking the law. |
but the met are hardly a bunch of angels, and there are a lot of good reasons why people distrust them. their record on shootings and internal enquiries around deaths relating to police activities is a little...patchy, shall we say..
that said, apparently this guy shot at the police first.. however I would like to know where this information comes from.
"As a teacher, I've seen a LOT of hatred towards the police by kids, and you ask them why, and they don't have an answer. All I've ever seen is the police being fairly tolerant of the little dicks, and the worst stories most of them have is that they were asked politely to move along once. Most of them not even that."
do you work in london? you'd be amazed how many young people, mainly from ethnic minorities, are stopped and searched on a regular basis.. harassment? if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck..
