With the media going against the Police, A listener called Mike from Uxbridge phoned into TalkRADIO and read out a statement from a female police officer who was at the scene last night.
The female police officer states that what happened is very different from what the press tells us.
Mike said: The female officer stated on a social media Facebook group that the event “started with mainly women police officers overlooking a civil vigil. When numbers grew and social distancing ceased, police officers were called in. When police officers tried to crowed control and remove people from stamping on flowers, they refused.”
Mike then hits out at the media for painting the Police in a bad light, saying: “The police officers were clearly pushed onto the flowers, not as your previous correspondent says.”
The TalkRADIO host returned saying it looks awful what the Police did last night with laying down women and knicking them. Is it not bad policing?
The caller said: The Police were there trying to keep order. “People turned up from rent a mob who wanted to cause problems and prejudice reports, and Prejudice reporting like the BBC saying policemen were holding down the woman, when it was policewomen holding down the woman. How about telling the truth?”
The big question is, are Police getting the raw end of the stick when it comes to what happened last night. Labour leader Keir Starmer criticised the Police after the Police followed the Covid rules he passed in Parliament.
Sadiq Khan, who is in charge of the Police in London, also blames the Police when he is in charge of London’s Police, telling them to fully enforce the Covid lockdown rules.
It seems the Police can’t do right from doing wrong.
