The UK is in crisis, sagging under the weight of Islamic extremism. After lone wolf attacks on British officers and the recent discovery of radical Islamic cells throughout the country, police are appearing to cower.
An officer from Yorkshire told the Daily Mail:
“I’m not allowed to travel in half blues to work anymore in my own car as we’re ‘All at risk of attack’ – yet as soon as someone points out the obvious it’s ‘divisive.”
Some officers are afraid that if another attack occurs on an officer it’ll be simply written off as a one-off situation and no meaningful action will be taken.
This is extremely troubling given the fact that some police need to ask permission from local muslim leaders to patrol certain neighborhoods. For example a cop in Lancashire said:
‘There are Muslim areas of Preston that, if we wish to patrol, we have to contact local Muslim community leaders to get their permission.’
If cops can’t do their job, how will they protect the British people from attack?
From the Daily Mail:
Serving police officers today backed Donald Trump’s claim that some Muslim communities in the UK are no-go areas because of extremism.
Several Met officers have said the ‘Islamification’ of some parts of the capital requires ‘extra vigilance’ and they can’t wear uniforms for safety reasons – despite Scotland Yard claiming the tycoon ‘couldn’t be more wrong’.
Home Secretary Theresa May tonight rejected Mr Trump’s claims, insisting: ‘The police in London are not afraid to go out and police the streets.’
The US presidential contender caused worldwide consternation yesterday after a string of incendiary remarks about Muslims, including in Britain, and said: ‘We have places in London and other places that are so radicalised that police are afraid for their own lives.’
