The future of law enforcement…


Yes folks… It’s a-comin’ if the Tories have their way we will be Police UK plc before long…

Imagine that folks: private companies providing police services…

The movie Robocop had an interesting idea… Not the cyborg cop…the police being run by OCP, a commercial company…it goes badly wrong of course…

The movie is a funny prod at corporate greed and a black comedy that highlights the dangers of allowing people that only see the world in dollar signs to be in charge of public services…

The tag line for the movie is : Robocop…the future of law enforcement …

West Mids and Surrey are looking into it already… And the functions they are looking to replace are shocking….

Core traffic…

CID…

Uniform patrol…

Prisoner handling…

Ok… I suppose prisoner handling could be done by civvies… But private cops dealing with domestics?

How do they deal with strike action? Private coppers are not warranted… They will be able to strike…unless they are prevented by law…

But if they are then wont they be us anyway?

This is a savage attack on the police by a government driven by one goal: the increase of profits for them and their mates…

Just like every other Tory government since the beginning of time…

For me, this seems like the beginning of the end for state run bodies… The Tories don’t want them… They cost money.., let people have the services they want…and pay for them…

Robocop wasn’t so far in the future after all eh?

I find this more worrying than the attack on our pensions…

  1. The attractive point about Ed209 and robocop being that they would work as many hours as possible and not complain, and when they were broken you could throw them on the scrapheap.
    Just like what happened in the 19th century to workers.

    Welcome to the Private Police Force – Stephen Fry & Hugh Laurie – BBC

    it was supposed to be joke…… but is it the future

  3. You dorks kept Maggie in power 1979 through the Miners Strike. Remember THAT? I do. Blair looked up the roided out goons in blue and saw that it was good yea and he continueth even unto 2010. Now times are hard and for the first time in 33 years you are told NO. Like a petulant kid you throw teddy out of the pram. In the words of Ghetto Boyz “Die, mothafucka die”.

    time for the federation to really step up to plate , the euro court has been used to ‘pervert the course of justice ‘ in these lands for some time , about time ‘we’ fought back and used it to our own ends which I truly believe WILL save the public from a worse service than they already get , seek and we will find a route to our salvation …..amen !!

  5. Chris Alder, Liddle Towers, Harry Stanley, Mark Duggan and a cast of millions.

    Don’t call Shuj a twat Plod it is not nice!

  6. At least Robocop had a big gun and could defend himself!!
