Australian Police – Wimps or Whiners?

Aside from the usual stupidity of criminals, can anyone tell me what is wrong with this news story?

Warwick Police Station has again been the target of a brazen attack, with tyres on seven cars slashed in the early hours of this morning.

Two marked vehicles, three unmarked cars and two officers’ personal cars had their tyres slashed in the compound of Warwick Police Station some time between midnight and 6.20am this morning.

Note the key word  ‘again’ in this report.  This is the second time somebody has attacked cars at the police station:

The incident comes eight weeks after an attack that saw two privately-owned cars at the station set alight with what police believed was a Molotov cocktail.

Of course, its pretty stupid to come back to the scene of a crime.  Especially to a police station.  That organization created to investigate crimes, with specialized training in investigation and with the full force of the state behind it to find and detain criminals.  Like those who attack cars and destroy them.  Or at least one would think so.  Just about anywhere in the world attacking the police is the stupidest thing a criminal can do.  They are the biggest gang around and they can find you and punish you.

But apparently not in Australia, or at least this part of Western Australia.  Here, they whine on about closed circuit tv and lighting:

WA Police Union president Mike Dean said security at the station had not been prioritised by Premier Colin Barnett.

“There just seems to be absolutely no urgency about upgrading security at this active station,” he said.

“And here we have another incident a mere eight weeks after the Premier pledged to boost security at the facility.”

He said making the station car park compound secure would not be an “expensive fix”.

“All that is needed is the installation of CCTV and an electronic gate at an estimated amount of up to $20,000 to make this area secure,” he said.

Now this is the union spokesman (we can get into the whole idea of unionized police as government idiocy at another level later), but here’s an idea.  You are the fracking POLICE!  How about you go out and crack some skulls and find out who did this and put them in the pokey for a couple of decades?  With some nice broken limbs thrown in as a bonus?  Teaching the criminals that it is not allowed to even think about attacking the police would go a long way toward ensuring that your job is easier all around.

I have absolutely no experience with Australia other than a very pleasant visit there a couple of years ago.  We were treated very politely and had a wonderful time everywhere we went.  However, Australia is overrun with politically correctness.  Especially the enviroKooks and the minions of the Great and Powerful Algore.  They are very, very, very, very, very guilty about the treatment of the Aborigines and never stop bashing themselves and their culture.  They just turfed out their very successful Conservative Prime Minister and replaced him with a socialist who immediately promised to bow down to the UN and Kyoto.

And apparently they have police who are so wimpy they can’t even go out and find people who attack their very own cars.

Website Attacking A Baby

From Right Wing News and John Hawkins:

Make no mistake about it; the left’s attacks on Sarah Palin’s family are meant to be a Mafia style message to other conservative women — you cross us and we’ll come after your children.

If you want to see how far they’ll go, witness this entry from an anonymous blog dedicated to attacking Trig Palin (I’ll leave it to the netroots to actually link the blog because I’m not going to do it). Yes, that’s right, some liberal out there has actually created an entire blog dedicated to mocking a baby with Down’s Syndrome.

To give you an idea of what the content is like, here’s a screenshot of one of the posts,

No one who does this has any claim to be some sort of moral person.  Just a thug with absolutely no center.

Compared to Horse

Yes – just imagine what would happen if some conservative had compared a female governor to a horse:

It’s a pity Gingrich was not around when the Roman Emperor Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, better known by his nickname Caligula, reputedly named Incitatus as a consul and a priest. Incitatus was his horse.

Interestingly enough, that is what was done by Richard Cohen.

We await the outraged feminist comments and the public lynching of Mr. Cohen.

British Police Attacked by Mob

Of course as Rachel Lucas points out – unarmed police are about as useless as tits on a bull if the mob decides that they don’t want to obey them:

For the love of God, Britain. You really, really, really, really need to grow your balls back.

A good first step would be to arm your police. I know it sounds all hillbillyish and redneckian, but there’s something called “deterrence.” It’s this crazy concept we uncivilized rubes over here in ‘Murrica apply in order to give our law enforcement the ability to, you know, enforce the law.

But the wimps there have learned their lessons.  For example they don’t want to use the word MOB (as in group of people rioting against the public order and beating up two cops) because that might be inflammatory:

Whilst we would never use the word ‘mob’ which is an inflammatory word, we can confirm that eye witnesses have described their initial fear that officers were going to be seriously injured or killed.”

and Rachel shows what will probably be the followup:

I expect the followup article to this one to explain how the injured officers are being sued for inflaming the rage of the crowd, and maybe even a few arrests will be made of the witnesses for hate speech because they described the scene as “horrifying.”

The British do make a habit of locking up people who actually defend themselves and their property.

Get out while you can – those of you who don’t want to be paying jizya in a few years.
