Hurrah for the Met

Posted in The Job - Comment by 200

So the Met have eventually charged the sum total of three people over the infamous ‘Muslim Cartoon Demo’ in central London on February 3rd.

In a triumph for police investigative skills they’ve managed to identfy and charge 3 people. Bravo and three cheers for the boys in blue. Now all the people complaining that the Met sat back on their politically correct arses and declined to take positive action during the demonstration can eat their words, or something.

Currently forces up and down the land have been told to get their detection rates up, something to do with making the government look better. So coppers are working rest days and getting up at the crack of dawn to arrest all the people who fail to appear at court or who are wanted on warrant (i.e. detections where you don’t have to do any actual police work) so the figures can get a much needed injection. But the Met’s answer is to swap a few dozen detections via an arrest on the day of the demo for a couple of detections 6 weeks later – if you’ll forgive the phrase – top bombing!

    Of course, I’m sure under HOCR they have record ALL of the crimes they have been unable to detect, as their have been more than sufficient complaints for them all to be crimed. :)
