What makes them 'anti-police' (apparently) is that they challenge the misuse of those powers, sometimes emotionally, sometimes robustly, often persistently because they see that things haven't changed or they're not changing quickly enough. They're not waiting 30 years, they're raising it now, because it is happening now. If that's what makes someone anti-police then I, like 'them', am guilty as charged.
The disgraced threesome may have every reason to feel somewhat aggrieved at their treatment. If it is "excusable" for a judge to fall asleep - or appear to do so - during a child's evidence in a rape trial, why should the legal and harmless sexual activities of judges in the privacy of their chambers be "inexcusable"?
The most recent Lancet study on 410 patients in South London with first episode psychosis compares individuals who smoked skunk-like cannabis to never-smokers. It demonstrated that smoking skunk once a week increases your risk of psychosis by two, more than once a week by almost 3 and more than five times a week by more than five times
For some time now, it's been clear that our criminal justice system is not up to scratch in the way it treats victims and witnesses. The very people it is designed to serve and protect have been ignored and mistreated. In some cases, victims have themselves been treated as criminals... While the current Victim's Code of Conduct is an improvement on its predecessor, it is still too easily dismissed by those working in the justice system. It is toothless, and the time has come to give it teeth. Putting it into law would strengthen victims' rights in a whole raft of areas.
Whilst I appreciate the law need be as authoritative as possible thereby requiring the use of ritualistic formal and even archaic language, we must find a way of simplifying matters such that those whom can't afford lawyers but need the support of the law and access to justice, find a way to it without becoming lost in translation.
The idea that the entire Muslim community should be watched for signs of adherence to Islam, which will then lead to potential criminal activity, underpins Prevent and the CTS Act. It would be expected that with such policies and matching rhetoric, the public would begin to see the Muslim community living by Islam as a problem, criminal community that should be ostracised.
