A study by the prestigious University of Cambridge says that since police officers started wearing body cameras, complaints against police have fallen by 93 per cent.
So that’s great news.
But what about when police racism is caught on tape, and even being bragged about?
The deputy commissioner of Scotland Yard — also known as the Metropolitan Police, the police force for Greater London — said in an interview that, as one newspaper put it:
“Don’t expect police to come out after a crime if you’re healthy, middle-aged and speak good English”
So much for equality before the law.
Meanwhile, also out of London, comes a story of a “Christian child forced into Muslim foster care; Concern for girl who ‘had cross removed and was encouraged to learn Arabic.’”
Yet a few years back, when a foster child was found in the home of a family that voted for UKIP — the mainstream party that not only has received millions of votes, but that framed the key issue in the past quarter century for the UK, namely getting out of the European Union — merely being UKIP members caused a foster home to have the child ripped away from them.
