And the real problem is…

Staying on the subject of the British police, this juxtaposition of tweets doesn’t need any additional commentary from me:

In a way this is a good thing. The more they keep this up, the quicker the British public will get the measure of them.

  1. Question; what’s the average prison sentence in the UK for someone convicted of performing or enabling FGM, a crime that has been on the statute books for 30 years?

  2. You’d need to find someone who’s been convicted first. From what I can tell, the police seem extremely reluctant to forward cases to the CPS, and the CPS equally reluctant to prosecute.

  3. “We’re saddened that a few people have taken this post as an opportunity to respond by posting Islamaphobic abuse”

    My view is that the sadness of the police force is a powerful indicator of a country’s decline.

  4. I looked at the thread that followed the original tweet and the level of “Islamophobic abuse” was much the same as what I imagine was directed at the incompetent Cathy Newman (no relation, I hope) after her Jordan Peteron interview.

    Mostly people were pointing out the zero arrests over the years with others asking why every day wasn’t a zero tolerance day.

    Perhaps it’s possible to remove tweets from the thread – I’m not a twitter user.

  5. “You’re nicked” used to mean one thing as far as law and order went.

    Now we are moving swiftly towards lawless and disorder, being nicked (or more relevantly, doing the nicking) is an entirely different matter.

  6. The real problem with the prosecution of FGM is that it takes place largely (but not exclusively) within the RoP’s and is done outside the UK in whatever shithole country the parents are from usually under the pretext of a holiday.

    Unless the kid knows and actually complains to the police beforehand (and how many kids are ever going to rat out their parents), then there is little in the way of prevention that can be done.

    As for prosecution after the fact both the Police and CPS are reluctant to get involved for fear of being labelled as racist (as the Rottherham, Oxford, blah, blah, blah, RoPer child sex cases demonstrated), that along with a culture of silence over FGM makes prosecutions as rare as rocking horse shit.

    There’s a tweet out there responding to that. Basically, Plod says it is a “nuanced” issue and by the time the crime is discovered they feel it’s not in the child’s best interests to prosecute. In other words, the perpetrators belong to a protected class.

    Do they feel the same way with child rape in the RoP community? Answers on a postcard to Alison Saunders, Director of Public Prosecutions, Crown Prosecution Service, Rose Court, 2 Southwark Bridge Road, Southwark, London SE1 9HS

  9. “Basically, Plod says it is a “nuanced” issue and by the time the crime is discovered they feel it’s not in the child’s best interests to prosecute.”

    Roughly translated; “we disagree with either the law or the prescribed sentence of the law. Someone should let the House of Commons know our displeasure”.
