That’s the way to do it

Posted in The Job - General by 200

The one thing that all the police blogs I know have in common is that we all just want to tell it like it is; to cut through all the verbal bollocks and spin. None of us have gone to the mealy-mouth school & none of us are particularly well versed in the art of talking through the ring-piece much perfected by politicians and senior officers.

I recommend the afore-mentioned people take a look at this video which shows a US police chief telling it like it is after the death of one of his officers.

I doubt we will see anything similar on the UK TV screens anytime soon.

    Great stuff, a senior officer with some spine!
    We need some like this in our country who are prepared to make a stand.

    This fine leader of Officers epitimises what we will hear when this sorry country comes crashing down to the ground. Its close troops, very close. I for one cannot stand much more of the political claptrap, statiscical loonacy and complete obsession with dissappearing up their own backsides displayed on a daily basis by so called ‘Policing Experts’. Give the streets back to us who know what we are doing and with the greatest respect, Sir/Ma’am, leave Policing to us. We are experienced, hard working and above all honest.

    Imagine if a senior officer in the UK spoke out like that, you would find them mysteriously resigning shortly after. I’d love to think that somebody would support officers like that but it’s sadly unlikely. I think it’s only a matter of time before the public backlash on rights for criminals.

    Can’t agree more, we need less liberal clap trap and more hard talking common sense.
