Sorry I’m off Duty.
Police management are suggesting off duty officers should not act but should call back to base if they come across a crime.
What utter stupidity.
Any sensible police officer who sees a crime he can’t handle would call for assistance whether on or off duty, however when off duty we expect a police officer to be part of the community. What this government is telling the police is you are going to be our little state soldiers, forget your community. You can imagine the conflict for police officers when confronted by section 59 episodes in public; how they would respond if they are expected to uphold the law. Imagine the office duty police officer out for jog, and finds a rape in progress. You’re being raped madam, just hold on there while I find a telephone.
This adequately highlights the deficiency in the thinking left wing academics. We are being governed by a bunch of dolts.
They want us to descend to their level of thinking — think not.
