law and order in loony-land

There is no way I could resist posting this latest bit of lunacy from Loony-Land. ( with apologies to any Brit friends I may still have )

I read about police stations flying the rainbow flag of that other very vocal group. If you keep up to these things, and how does one avoid it anyway, you know that in these more modern and enlightened times, homosexuality is not only protected by various laws but is now something that requires celebration. With marches and their own flag and parades down main street.  Okay. Hey, if it makes em happy and nobody is hurt or inconvenienced, I think most of us can pretty well ignore them. When they let us ignore them. Hard to do sometimes.  I’m still annoyed that they have managed to hijack the language and wantonly steal the word ‘gay’ and make it their own.  There are generations now that think the term (hardly used as original anymore) The Gay 90s, refers to queens of the 1990s. 

So anyway ... this caught my tired eyes this morning.

Police fail to find culprit in HALF of all crimes: Critics say criminals ‘are getting away with it’ and demand tougher punishments after figures are published

Millions of offenders are getting away scot-free with police failing to solve more than half of all crimes
For some offences, three-quarters of investigations are closed without anyone being brought to justice
Sexual offences for the year ending March have soared by 20 per cent, including 26 per cent more sex crimes against children

This is the police’s new weapon in the fight against crime – a rainbow-coloured patrol car.

With flashing lights in various hues instead of the usual blue, it is intended to combat homophobic hate crime in Manchester.

But the new Hyundai failed to impress some gay rights campaigners.

David Allison of OutRage! called it ‘tacky’, saying: ‘It’s not going to revolutionise the worst parts of Manchester.’

The rainbow car will lead the city’s Pride parade next month before being put into operation in suburban areas to raise awareness of homophobic offences.

Funded by business donations, it will not be sent to crime scenes but is meant to reassure victims that officers are approachable.

Greater Manchester Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Lloyd described the car as an example of ‘modern policing’.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
