I Am Beaten

Written by RSS Poster RetiredAndAngry on the 09th September 2018 at 13:51 - Posted in Police Blogs

Hi people, I came to a civilised arrangement with Norton and they removed my Blacklisting ater only 24 hours. Twatter, however, have taken pomposity to a whole new level. This will be the last post on this platform, but I have been resurrected at http://retiredandangry.co.uk/ If you normally get emails informing you of new posts you MAY have to re-register.  I have transferred your details across to the new blog but I’m not convinced it’s working.  If you still want to get notified of my new...

Norton SafeWeb Lists Me As Dangerous 😂

Written by RSS Poster RetiredAndAngry on the 06th September 2018 at 11:25 - Posted in Police Blogs

It has come to my notice that this site has been blacklisted by Norton and listed as ‘Dangerous’. Whilst it’s quite good to be regarded as a little bit dangerous I can assure you that my site doesn’t phish, it doesn’t spam (to the best of my knowledge, I don’t Spam unless I’m hacked). I am in negotiations with Norton to be re-evaluated but that takes time apparently. In the meantime, just to reassure you, here’s the blacklist report for my site. You obviously don’t have to, but...

Drink/Drive vs Stop/Search

Written by RSS Poster RetiredAndAngry on the 04th September 2018 at 19:49 - Posted in Police Blogs

A few days ago I was having a chat with a couple of other crusties, the current, persistent, furore over Stop and Search was high on our agenda. In my opinion driving a car or riding a motor bike and getting breath-tested goes with the ‘fun’ of driving and riding.  If you haven’t had a drink or just the one, it’s a bit of an inconvenience but it normally ends there.  If you’ve had a drink and you fail the roadside test the scenario is very different, but the risk to other road users is...

“Police have the resources they need to carry out their vital work.”

Written by RSS Poster RetiredAndAngry on the 03rd September 2018 at 13:11 - Posted in Police Blogs

These were the words of an anonymous Home Office spokesperson in response to a Sky News item this morning detailing the £1Bn worth of property that the Metropolitan Police has had to sell off since 2010 to keep their heads above water.  Some of the buildings have been owned by the Met since the 19th century.  Chairman of the Metropolitan Police Federation, Ken Marsh, said “We’ve sold the Crown Jewels, so to speak. We’ve run out of things to sell. This is really, really, worrying for society,” “At...

It’s A War Zone Out There

Written by RSS Poster RetiredAndAngry on the 24th August 2018 at 0:58 - Posted in Police Blogs

Well, it is war really. I make absolutely no apology for starting off with a stark image This is one of the more acceptable images from Camberwell recently where Police and Paramedics encountered a scene of absolute carnage after 4 young men had been stabbed in the street, one of them DISEMBOWELLED.  Nobody, I repeat, NOBODY, deserves that in a so-called civilised country.  I don’t care if you are black, white, Asian, Oriental, gay, straight, trans or whatever, this level of violence has no...

Gang Violence In London And Elsewhere

Written by RSS Poster RetiredAndAngry on the 18th August 2018 at 10:04 - Posted in Police Blogs

I shall probably be called Racist by people who don’t really get it, but, hey, I don’t care. Some things are more important than that. I shall stick my head, with my tin foil helmet, above the parapet and proffer my opinions. During my working life I have worked the streets of Brent and Southall, both areas with a very high percentage of immigrants. I tried to avoid South London, even Cab Drivers don’t want to go there, but occasionally I was sent to Brixton to give them a hand with some disorder....

Is Mutual Aid Propping Up The Police Service?

Written by RSS Poster RetiredAndAngry on the 09th August 2018 at 12:54 - Posted in Police Blogs

I feel that I must begin by acknowledging that I have been retired from Policing 16 years this month. I am out of touch. Things have changed, oh how they have changed. However that does not automatically invalidate my thoughts and concerns. For a variety of reasons I have turned my attention recently to Mutual Aid. For those that are not familiar with it, basically, when a major event, such as the recent Wedding of Prince Harry, takes place and the local Force has insufficient resources they can...

The Changing Face of the Police Service

Written by RSS Poster RetiredAndAngry on the 01st August 2018 at 11:24 - Posted in Police Blogs

We all know it.  The Police Service is changing.  I won’t bore you by repeating the various crises that Policing faces, but what do these changes LOOK LIKE?  I thought I might highlight a few areas that some Academics may not choose to, so I got my crayons out again. Diversity. Over many years, even before Cruella’s Crusade began, the Police Forces of England and Wales were tackling the issue of diversity within their ranks, and, long term, this is how they have done. The graph goes relentlessly...

The Crucifixion Cycle (As Amended)

Written by RSS Poster RetiredAndAngry on the 28th July 2018 at 9:59 - Posted in Police Blogs

Slash Resources Government slashes the resources of the public body in question.  Be it NHS, Armed Forces, Police, Education, Coastguard, Fire Service, Probation…..the list just goes on and on.  They have all had their resources slashed to the bone (and possibly deeper) by this failing coalition government in the name of Austerity. Be under NO illusions, more cuts are coming, Gideon says so. Highlight The Failings Next Step is to commission a report highlighting the failings of said public body....

Crime Is Down, Police Reform Is Working

Written by RSS Poster RetiredAndAngry on the 26th July 2018 at 9:03 - Posted in Police Blogs

Does that sound familiar? How long have we been hearing that particular mantra? By my reckoning we’ve been subjected to it since 2014. Is Crime down? I leave it to others to decide if Police Reform is working, but my personal opinion is that it has been an unmitigated, ill thought-out, vengeful policy that has far from worked. The words “unmitigated” and “disaster” spring readily to my mind. To return to crime, for the last four years whilst the government have been trotting out that tired...
