‘Plebgate’ has hit the news again, and not because of Andrew Mitchell. He always denied calling the officers ‘plebs’ and we believed him – not because of the integrity of the police but that Andrew Mitchell is simply Tory scum
However it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that the coppers on duty may have been telling porky pies. Now you have to think if certain police are willing to lie simply to embarrass an MP, knowing that it would hit the news, what are they willing to do should it me or you challenge the authority of the police.
Whilst the police is full of working class people just trying to make ends meet – there are those who think it makes them better than everyone else, whether lying or the use of force. Sometimes the police are the ones that cannot be trusted – keep ’em peeled, ACAB.
So two coppers in Ramsgate think it’s funny to pull over to tell a ten year old girl that she could be charged with criminal damage for drawing a hopscotch square on the floor in chalk.
What a pair of wankers, not only have they frightened the girl but she was doing nothing wrong. This is OUR land and the police are here by default of law and government NOT they they have a define right to tell people what they can or can’t do.
Now it’s been raised as a complaint they are nowhere to be found, and ‘apparently’ there is no report of a car in that area. Give some people a uniform and they think it gives them power over anyone – WELL IT DOESN”T.
Whilst I was waiting in the fishmongers yesterday, a police van and car in tow stopped outside due to traffic lights. Over the tannoy some female copper shouting happy Christmas to all in penge. She the noticed us all in the fish shop and shouted HAPPY FISHMAS to all in the fishmongers.
Oh how we laughed.
Either they were going to a Xmas bash or more likely just finished from the night before.
Maybe an ACAB Christmas do!
London has obviously learnt more than Beijing ever knew, why just suppress any political unrest (cabbies) when you can kettle and arrest anyone who dares set foot near the Olympics without having purchased a ticket.
Critical mass went for their regular monthly bike ride last night and were met with heavy police presence, forced down a cul de sac and kettled there. Anyone dare question their authority was arrested. A good job their are only surface to air missiles available or critical mass could have taken a new meaning.
How dare the public exercise their right to take part in a physical activity that hadn’t been sponsored by mcDonalds or coke – perhaps that was the main issue. Perhaps if a demonstration got corporate sponsorship it would be allowed.
I don’t know what is going on in this country but I get the feeling that ‘Machievelian’ rule is becomming paramount as the Tories realise that they are truly hated. Despite all ‘plastic bullet’ deaths and disabilty caused in Northern Ireland, the police have seen fit to increase their stocks of plastic bullets from 700 rounds to over 10,000 within a six month period.
The BBC have published that an ex-Metropolitan Police Commander suggested the huge rise may be due to change of policy on the weapons and an increased willingness to use them. The police are going to give a statement later today, but do actions speak louder than words; it will be interesting as to what discorse they use to justify their actions! Are they hoping that the London elections will dominate the news?
Ever time there is a conservative government, civil liberties are gradually eroded away (right to silence, Criminal Justice act etc…), and now the possibility that the right to protest may be on its way out. If the police can murder the innocent newspaper vendor, Ian Tomlinson, and no prosecution has taken place, I’m certain they won’t think twice in deploying plastic bullets to maintain order.
The issues are never truly addresses, just suppressed, no wonder class war politics are becoming more and more prevalent.
