‘Can you stop performing for the cameras and just do your job’

October 30, 2017

WARPED PRIORITIES: “Leaders like to blame budget cuts for failures. If money is so tight, how come we are able to police Hamas supporters parading through central London when Remembrance Sunday parades may be cancelled across the country due to cuts.” – Katie Hopkins on the British police’s budget priorities for policing public marches. This is a You Tube picture of the June Al Quds march in London.

KEEP GOING: “Painting your nails to draw attention to slavery is a brilliant idea. All those who say otherwise are seriously misguided. Well done and good luck.” – Resident from Somerton, Somerset, backs the constabulary’s anti-slavery campaign.

SPEAK OUT: “Modern slavery is a crime that many find hard to believe still exists in this day and age, but it sadly does. What’s worse is modern slavery occurs in everyday situations and that’s why we all have a role to play in being a louder voice for those who are trafficked and exploited.” – Police and crime commissioner Sue Mountstevens.

UNCERTAIN FUTURE: “Crime is up 13 per cent, knife attacks, acid attacks and a terror threat that is unprecedented. Whether politicians like or not, we are afraid for our kids. More than ever we need the reassurance of armed police, zero tolerance and officers empowered to act and defend us.” – LBC presenter Katie Hopkins.

 

 

AVON and Somerset Police has been accused of getting its priorities back to front with the multiple threats facing public safety.

The force has come under fire from LBC presenter and Daily Express columnist Katie Hopkins over its decision to paint the nails of police officers to highlight the plight of employees subjected to slavery in the nail industry.

But the constabulary claimed in its press release that it was joining forces with the Let’s Nail It Campaign to raise awareness of slavery in nail bars to mark World Slavery Day on Wednesday 18 October.

‘Modern slavery still exists’

Avon and Somerset Police and crime commissioner Sue Mountsevens said of their participation in the campaign: “Modern slavery is a crime that many find hard to believe still exists in this day and age, but it sadly does.

“What’s worse is modern slavery occurs in everyday situations and that’s why we all have a role to play in being a louder voice for those who are trafficked and exploited.”

This has not impressed the controversial columnist who had some choice words for the police force for complaining about funding cuts when being able to find money to police the Al-Quds March in London, the nail campaign in Somerset or funding a video to promote Islam in Lincolnshire, when it had not done it for other faiths.

March proceeded 12 days after terror attack

In June, this blog reported how terrorism survivor Kay Wilson put out a video challenging London Mayor as to why he was allowing the march, that featured supporters of Hamas and Hezbollah, was allowed to proceed just 12 days after the London Bridge terror attacks.

Despite a string of burglaries in North Somerset and Bristol (some were committed when families were at home), the county constabulary disbanded a specialist burglary unit due to reductions in their funding.

‘We are afraid for our kids’

“What are British police playing at? Crime is up 13 per cent, knife attacks, acid attacks and a terror threat that is unprecedented. Whether politicians like or not, we are afraid for our kids. More than ever we need the reassurance of armed police, zero tolerance and officers empowered to act and defend us. We don’t have that.

“Sadiq (Khan) gave £1.5M to a new on-line hate unit to police my twitter. Meanwhile actual haters on our actual streets believe it God’s will to chop the heads of Kaffir like me or stab a man for his phone or rape our girls, far easier to sit behind a desk in the warm and police hate on-line than deal with this real stuff.

‘Who cares if they painted their nails blue’

“Avon and Somerset Police should know. “To fill their time their men did this, painted their nails blue and posted them on social media, who cares why?

“The only message we got is that Avon and Somerset Police can’t solve real crime. Boys please do not use your uniform as a costume to prostitute yourself for cliques.”

‘There is always a budget for appeasement’

“Leaders like to blame budget cuts for failures. If money is so tight, how come we are able to police Hamas supporters parading through central London when Remembrance Sunday parades may be cancelled across the country due to cuts.

“Imagine when the Royal British Legion needs to find £1,800 to fund theirs when Lincolnshire Police managed to find the cash for a promotional video for Islam, how nice? There is always budget for appeasement.

“I am sorry for the good police men and women who are sick of this like the rest of us. Our country is in a sorry mess. Quit painting your nails and stop performing for the cameras – any idiot can do that. Do your job.”

They do their jobs and more every single day. They don’t drop everything and run out the door at the end of their shifts like most people. They have to finish dealing with whatever the community threw at them 15 minutes before the end of that shift. They don’t get paid overtime for that unless it’s already agreed for some event. They are community police and they engage with the community to reduce crime, proactively. They are raising people’s awareness to encourage them to identify victims of slavery.
