Not in the best light

Posted in The Job - General, Videos by 200

I mentioned recently that I have a general interest in the police forces of the world.

A month ago I posted about the fact that Britain was instrumental in arming  & training the police several middle eastern countries and hinted that the intentions of these often repressive countries in gaining input in democratic policing was probably a veneer, especially as the current troubles were bringing the attention of the world on the repressive & brutal tactics of our middle eastern police cousins.

The Telegraph reports that police officers shot two civlians in a ‘drive-by’ shooting. It doesn’t say whether they were injured or killed.

It doesn’t appear to be an isolated incident.

    Watched Question Time last night and one of the unanswerable questions was if we (The UN) impose a no fly zone etc on Libya, how long before we have to do the same thing over Bahrain? and Saudi Arabia. – and now Yemen.
    The next couple of years are going to be grim….
