A police officer is being rapped over the knuckles by his superiors, just for standing up for himself.
Faced with Kurdish protestors in central London who were telling him to “get out of here”, the PC responded by saying “you don’t tell me what to do in my country”. Was he backed up by his superiors when outnumbered by a shouty mob? No, of course not.
He is now under investigation for alleged racism and using “discriminatory language”. He is not impressed. He is accusing his superiors of “oppressive political correctness”, a trait which means that many of his colleagues are “afraid to do their jobs properly” for fear of being stitched up by their desk-bound bosses.
The greatest threat to our police officers comes from on high, not the ruffians on the streets.
