Harry Reid, jailed for the killing of three police officers in 1966, is about to be released. The police don’t like it, even though he’s been inside for 48 years. That’s alot longer than if he’d been done for murdering three peons.
Chair of the Police Federation of England and Wales, Steve White says he is appalled at the decision […]
“This decision by the parole board is a slap in the face for the families of the three police officers he brutally murdered who, once again, are forced to re-live their pain and loss. It will spark fury among everyone in the police family who will feel badly let down.
I agree with him. Reid was meant to go down for a whole life tariff, but it turned out the State lied. And he’ll soon be released, though goodness knows what he’ll do at 78 years of age.
But the police have done plenty of face slapping themselves, metaphorically as well as literally. It’s a slap in the face when parents discover their young daughter was gang raped by muslims, and the savages will get away with it because the police are more concerned with protecting their fat salaries by avoiding a charge of “racism”.
It’s a slap when serious assaults end with a caution.
It’s a slap when the police prevent paramedics from reaching gunshot victims. Health an safety is the excuse. Yeah – their health and safety, because police lives are more special.
As for the police harrassing Britons for thought crimes, from arresting a woman for the non-crime of reading out the names of the war dead at the Cenotaph, to arresting Christians for non-crimes and persecuting a man for reading the words of Winston Churchill – slap slap slap slap slap.
So the Chair of the Police Federation can shut his whining mouth. Yes, Harry Reid should die in prison, and his release will be felt hard by the bereaved, but that’s nothing compared to the pain the police inflict on victims and the innocent every day.
