You remind me of the Movie One Eyed Jacks when the Sheriff told Marlon Brando " We will give you a fair trial - then hang you"

Until there is a court case I will reserve judgement on intent etc

Unfortunately in order for Police reform to happen in the US, it has to be explained to Donald Trump.

Sadly, the left in America, seemingly, want our police to mirror the changing police scene in the UK.  Quasi social workers on patrol!

No, they want the opposite.

That is at the core of the Defund the Police movement.

The status quo is to just throw money at the police and expect that to fix the homeless problem.

Or the drug problem.

Or domestic violence.

Or mental illness.

The police should NOT have to deal with all this crap.

No wonder they feel like it's them against society.  Society dumps too much responsibility on them.

I watched a video of some little scumbag standing on London's Cenotaph, cheered on by the crowd as he was about to burn the Union Jack. The police came along and was yelling at him to "get down." Too politically correct, and sensitive to being labeled as violent, to actually drag the scumbag off of the monument, cuff him and drag him off to the paddy wagon.

 And, with an asshole Chief Constable in charge of them, no doubt they felt they would not get the back up they needed, instead, probably investigated for pulling the "poor man off of the national monument with out due care to his safety"!

?This is compounded by an equally, asshole of a Mayor.  London had three water cannons for dealing with such events and he got rid off them. Now, he has just one major concern,  renaming London's historic streets and removing centuries old monuments in the name of political correctness!

?I probably mentioned this before, and it may sound like a cliché, but it is the Gods honest truth. 

When I was a young cockney street urchin, if I got up to no good and our local beat Constable ( P.C. Murphy ) found out about it, and he had an uncanny natural talent of doing so, I got a belt around the earhole or back of the head, or a swift kick in the arse from him.

Sometimes, he dragged us waifs home by our earhole's - along the street and under the public gaze to our homes and informed our fathers what we had done - and that our dad's owed him a few pints in the local at Sunday lunchtime opening.

Needless to say; you know what comes next, our Fathers gave us a huge walloping, not only because we had misbehaved but now they were on the hook to buy Murphy's ale down the pub on Sunday!

That is how it should be, non of this P.C. bullshit!!!!!

The police: "Damned if you do and damned if you don't"

Our force members in general are the souls of tolerance and discretion and try to contain and diffuse the situations.

One of my family is a London copper and what frustrates him most at the moment are NOT the crowds of protesters - of whom 90%+ are reasonably behaved individuals but the PRIVATE evening parties where social distancing is ignored, drunkenness is rife and being prepared for the hail of bottles if attempting to cool things down a bit! All done with a minimum of personal due to Bojo and his gang

Your relative has his/her hands tied, what with all the political correctness that has been swept in over the years.

I thank your relative for their service!
