This time the idiots that screwed up are the zealots of the so-called 'race hate' branch of the Met. Having exhausted their enquiries at a nursery school at which a 3-year old was charged with racial hatred offences, then uncharged when the presence of a JCB 3X in the adjoining field supported the mother's contention that the toddler had actually been saying 'digger', a Croydon man was uncharged for having made a tweet when it was suggested that the Met zealots had no power to bring such charges.
I've long held that the police force is an area in which an individual's service preference field should always be used to bar them from work in their preferred area. Thus tough lads with difficulty doing joined-up writing who want to join the firearms unit should always be posted instead to the cycle safety unit, blokes wanting to serve in the vice or porn squads should be posted to the mounted police and kept away from computers, those wanting to be high-speed pursuit drivers should be sent to supervise the school crossing patrols and anyone but anyone who wants to work in the race hate branch should be posted to the art and antiques squad.
You may perhaps rightly think that the actions of Matthew Doyle were crass, and posting on Twitter an action of gross stupidity, but poor taste and dimness are not crimes. And the public can see nothing but injustice from the Met who leave the real fomenters of racial hatred, the snake-tongued men from CAGE and their like, the Salafist imams of evil and the treasonous Choudhary, free to spread poison and distorted hatred whilst to the sound of trumpets and wide publicity seeking to persecute some poor dork from Croydon.
The Met is rapidly losing the confidence of the public, and this latest incident does nothing but further the process.
