Can we trust the police. Do you? I'm putting this post up because of something that happened earlier this month. I may share later what that something is. But I just wanted to air this question. Do you have any feeling one way or the other? Maybe your experiences have coloured your opinion, as it has with me. If there was one thing you could change what would that thing be?

My own experiences have been very very good......police have always lovely and caring....I know this sounds weird and may make some of you mad......but it's my own experience. We had some skirmishes in the estate where I was born......and the police were there....listening and when help was needed they were there.....there was a female cop called Beryl...I'll remember her.

Personally I would say 'who can'. Many doubtless can! Unfortunately not all of us can. Can we trust the police to make the right judgment call? Our police force might be 7.5 out of ten, but when the police miss it, people lose their lives, and things get very very messy.

I keep a positive attitude. Members of minority groups get the scrutiny, sad but true.

Would I report a crime if I was a witness? Would I if I was a victim? Do I want to see more police on the street? The answer to all the above questions is no. A number of the cops I've known and heard about from friends are bullies, cynical bullies. They throw their weight around and are not interested in solving problems. Sad but true.

Some of you guys are glad to be blinkered like a pony & stupidly ramble after every commentator. Our police force is amongst the best in the world. We have to watch it in Britain, we can't take anything for granted but by god our police are a way better than what you find in other European countries, and I'm not even talking about the Americas or the developing world. What I find interesting in these comments is you have no instances, no complaints, only ghosts in your own heads.
