Police Spend More Time Investigating Tweets Than Burglaries

Merseyside Police have apologised for unveiling a ridiculous billboard that proclaimed “Being Offensive Is An Offence.” The apology came after the force was unmercifully but justifiably trolled over its picture of four gormless coppers, standing in front of the billboard in an ASDA car park. Muppets.

Merseyside Police were apparently attempting to show solidarity with the mythical LGBT community. I say mythical because while you will undoubtedly encounter gay and lesbian folks in Liverpool, the only thing they have in common, is that they are in a same sex relationship. The idea that there is a community is derisory.

The force claims that LGBT and Transgender hate crimes in Merseyside are increasing exponentially. This is a nonsense. When a gay man or woman calls the police and says that they were insulted by someone, because of their sexuality, it’s recorded as a hate crime and added to the statistics, even if no further action is taken.

Violent (actual) crimes against LGBTQ+ people have been declining for years and are virtually non-existent now. 99.9999 per cent of us couldn’t care less about someone’s sexuality.

And yet we see police officers (males as well) painting their fingernails pink, to show solidarity with the fantasy LGBTQ community. LBC Radio host Nick Ferrari asked a great question yesterday. He wanted to know why police forces are getting involved in campaigning these days. Isn’t it the job of the police to solve actual crimes?

It appears that police forces across the UK are increasingly more interested in investigating tweets for hate speech, than catching burglars. A neighbour of mine was burgled two years ago. The police never showed up. He was told that they’d record the crime, but that there was little they could do. My friend was bewildered. I asked a neighbourhood watch group about the lack of police response. I was told the police rarely attend house burglaries.

If he’d called a trans woman on Twitter “he” or tweeted “you’re not a real woman”, the cops would have been there in a heartbeat. Last year South Yorkshire police tweeted a call for citizens to contact them to report “non crime hate incidents.” The force asked people to report offensive or insulting comments.

Merseyside Police may have apologised but don’t be fooled. This is not going away. The state and the police are becoming more and more interested in what you and I think, not what we may have done or are about to do. Thought Crime is now a reality.
