Police Exhaust Any Shred Of Sympathy For Their Cause
YOU know that the police are angry about having to succumb to cuts? You know busy they are? You know that Sir Ian Blair, the former head of the Metropolitan Police, who said after his retirement from a career spent upholding all the laws of the land and demanding that you on pain of truncheon do so too, who said:
From Martin Luther to Nelson Mandela, from William Wilberforce to Rosa Parks in Alabama, the decision to rebel against the status quo remains triumphantly admirable.”
Well, in Dorset:
Police rushed a pair of officers in a marked car to a park after two young sisters were spotted picking daffodils. Sienna Marengo, four, was seen picking flowers with six-year-old stepsister Olivia in Poole, Dorset. A member of the public reported them to police and two constables attended and advised the girls’ mother, Jane Errington, that she and her partner, Marc Marengo, could be arrested for criminal damage.
You know the police…
