UK Police Officers ‘Silly Stunts’ As Crime Soars

The answer to high crime rates and budget cuts is – silly stunts over substantive action.

The cash-strapped force has recently shut its burglary unit, which solved only 7,623 of 70,522 break-ins between 2011 and 2016.

Chief Constable Andy Marsh last month admitted the force was at a ‘tipping point’. It has had to make £65million of cuts since 2010 and is dealing with large numbers of officers off sick.

Police in Cardiff wore high heels as part of a campaign to raise awareness of domestic abuse.

Police chiefs were urged last night to abandon ‘silly stunts’ and get officers back on the beat.

They were told their increasingly bizarre gimmicks are undermining the job of tackling crime.

Officers were criticised for garishly painting their nails, posing for photos in bumper cars and stroking puppies for stress relief.

Others posed in bear masks and, in one force, drug squads insisted on asking cannabis growers if they were victims of slavery.

Yet shocking figures out this week showed that almost every type of crime is up, with knife offences alone rising by a quarter. Nine out of ten home burglaries are unsolved.

‘They have forgotten what their purpose is,’ said Mick Neville, a retired senior Scotland Yard detective.

‘Too many modern chief constables have got more degrees under their belts than arrests. The people in charge have simply not done the job.

‘The reason they do not investigate crime is they have never done it themselves. They are looking for cheap wins.’

Tory MP Peter Bone accused the police of ‘playing games’. He added: ‘Most people think police should be out on the beat catching criminals and deterring crime, not doing silly stunts.

Male and female staff were encouraged to wear garish neon nail varnish while on patrol to raise awareness of people-trafficking in nail bars.

Officers excitedly tweeted about ‘pampering’ themselves before shifts, and posted photos of their lurid nails while they were on patrol…

In Avon and Somerset, police went out on patrol wearing neon nail varnish to raise awareness of modern-day slavery.

The force posted images of officers pampering themselves with the catchline ‘Let’s Nail It’.

When the campaign provoked an angry backlash the force encouraged people who were criticised to report comments as a ‘hate crime’.

Menomonie, Wisconsin Police Officer Helps Speeding Student Tie Necktie

One of the thousands of acts of kindnesses that happen daily by law enforcement.

A University of Wisconsin-Stout student pulled over for speeding last month near campus was rushing to give a presentation and didn’t know how to tie his necktie. According to the Menomonie Police Department, Officer Martin Folczyk spotted the student’s BMW speeding down 8th Street at 8:55 a.m. on the morning of Nov. 30 and initiated the stop.

“I have to get a tie tied,” the driver said. “I have a presentation and I thought my buddy was home but he’s not, and I’m running behind.”

Before asking for his license and insurance, the officer asked the student for his tie, then loosely tied it around his own neck before handing it back.

“While I do this, why don’t you grab your proof of insurance and your driver’s license real quick,” Officer Folczyk said. “Probably not the best knot, but it will work.”

“Better than what I was going to do,” the student said. “Thank you so much.”

The student was given a verbal warning. There’s no confirmation on what grade his presentation received.

EXTRA CREDIT: After seeing the video of the traffic stop, the police chief invited the driver back to the police station and taught him to properly tie his own tie. Fox9

Podesta Leaked Email: Clinton Campaign Coordinating With Soros Organization, Suggest Federal Oversight Of Police

clinton-soros

“advocated putting federally-funded bureaucrats in charge of police oversight…”  That would be a National Police Force.

“Clinton campaign’s coordination with George Soros’s Open Society Foundations on the subject of police reform.”

That is illegal as there is supposed to be absolutely no interaction or coordination between a campaign and Super PACs.

Leaked emails from Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta’s personal email account published by WikiLeaks reveal the Clinton campaign’s coordination with George Soros’s Open Society Foundations on the subject of police reform.

Soros, who has given almost $10 million to Clinton super PAC Priorities USA, is a major funder of Black Lives Matter. The Washington Times reported in August that Soros has given at least $33 million to the group through the Open Society Foundations (OSF), which he funds and controls.

Both OSF and Clinton have called to crack down on police officers’ “implicit bias.”

As reported by The Daily Caller last month, internal OSF documents say the mainstreaming of “implicit bias” is meant to serve as a foundation from which to overhaul the nation’s anti-discrimination laws and make it easier to file racial discrimination lawsuits by eliminating the need to prove intent.

A December 2015 email exchange between Podesta and OSF president Chris Stone was included in the batch of Podesta’s emails released by WikiLeaks on Friday.

“Hi, John. Your policy team was asking me for ideas on police reform a couple of months ago. Here’s a concrete idea I’ve written up, and a good hook for it in Chicago,” Stone wrote.

Stone attached to the email an article he wrote that advocated putting federally-funded bureaucrats in charge of police oversight.

“Thanks Chris. Will circulate. Hope all is well,” Podesta replied.

“As well as can be. We are now officially and formally undesirable in Russia. Hope you are thriving!” Stone shot back. “From where I sit, things look good for your team.” DailyCaller

George Soros’s Open Society Foundations is not the only Super Pac Hillary’s campaign illegally interacted with.

David Brock runs a major pro-Hillary SuperPAC and John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, is emailing him. David Brock is the founder of Soros funded Media Matters for America.

There is supposed to be absolutely no interaction or coordination between a campaign and Super PACs.
