Get ready America?

Oh Dear, Oh Dear.

A brief bit that caught the old eye and felt the scare should be shared.

Have you heard of a top cop (American) named Bill Bratton?

He is being sought by some over here to head the police and bring, it is thought and prayed, American style policing to combat gang and drug violence.  Apparently Mr. Bratton had quite a bit of success in LA, Calif.  And his name got around.

(I will get to scare part soon)

How in the world whatever tactics he used to do whatever it is he was supposed to have done, will work in this politically correct asylum, is way beyond my understanding.  He must know this place, he must know police stations, (well at least one anyway) fly the rainbow flag on the proper day to show support for … hmm … er … you know.

He’d be butting heads with the left and civil rights and human rights lawyers AND … lets not forget the European Court of Human Rights which on occasion says what’s what on laws over here. 

It isn’t so much that the police here are bad eggs. It’s that their hands are tied by courts and lawyers who believe victims shouldn’t have rights.  Well that’s the perceived notion by golly.  Even a few on the left in sober moments away from their herbal substance of questionable legality, are beginning to question the criminal system in play here.

There is an English gentleman by the name of Sir Hugh Orde, of the Association of Chief Police Officers, London SW1.
He it was who proposed the international policing conference after the 2011 riots.

(Here come de scary part)

Sir Hugh says, and I can quote him here,
“US policing is keen to learn from our approaches not just to gangs – but in areas such as public order policing and more.”

Say what?  Our cops are keen to what?

OK, it is generally true that people can learn from each other. Most times.  But American cops can handle most things the dumb law allows.  After the riots here, and you will recall there was more than one of them, I’m not too certain Sir Hugh’s fellows can teach our guys much. Heaven help us if some left wing wanker in the USA in a position of some authority, decides the UK cops idea of how things could work in my country ……. OMG. 
Does not even bear thinking about.
Or wait.
Maybe it does.

Our new mayor here in Weird Town ( That’s what people call Portland now and are proud of it,UGH) as much as said he would ,if he could,outlaw guns,Period,end quote.So the idea of using pussyfied methods does not surprise me in the least.

  3. The cop you guys want to rent is Sheriff Joe. No, not Joe Biden. Joe Arpaio.

  4. To be fair to Orde he was in charge of the Northern Ireland Police Service who unlike cops on the mainland are armed, and have faced I would venture to guess rather more grueling conditions than the average US sheriffs dept. (excluding shitholes like Chicago, NY etc.) Aside from Oklahoma City I don’t recall too much in the way of domestic terrorism in the US over the past say forty years. Whereas in Northern Ireland it was until recently a way of life. So I would not be dismissing him out of hand.
