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.
