One of our commenters asked if GoV would put up this video.
He is very concerned with the erosion of the rule of law in London as is evidenced by the incidents captured here.
At the beginning, a Muslim man using a microphone in a moving vehicle is on such a tirade that it’s hard to understand what he’s saying. He goes on so long and loud that I began to think this was going to be the point of the piece.
But watch all the way to the end. Observe the disturbing helplessness of the police. It is difficult not to be embarrassed for them, as they seem to have no cohesion and no ability to deal with mob behavior.
I am troubled by the extremes of reaction by the UK Police. On the one hand, the “community police” harass and even incarcerate the indigenous Brits for allegedly dropping an apple core on the sidewalk. On the other hand, they are seemingly helpless in the face of an aggressive crowd of immigrants who have only contempt for their authority.
This is worse than corruption. It is collapse. Corruption can be reformed, but where do you send the purported keepers of the peace for courage and judgment?
