Get a BackBone!!!

Anti-terror raids could spark riots, says police chief

"Where there is good community engagement… there is far less likely to be an adverse reaction, in my experience. We ignore community quality-of-life issues at our peril." He said that underlying police-community relationships were particularly important following instances of "inappropriate police action, or police action that is perceived to be inappropriate".

What about the other way round - how about community-police relationships? It works both ways. We all know what the police and public are up against. Or do we? Funny you dont predict riots when the 'inappropriate' and vastly more destructive actions of terrorism are unleashed on the underground. We can squeeze the police over some communities 'quality of life' and ignore others.

And of course the police and security services never get it right do they.

"A 21-year-old man arrested in London last week under the Terrorism Act has been charged with conspiracy to murder a person or persons unknown. The man, who is from Bradford, was also charged with conspiracy to cause public nuisance by use of poisons and/or explosives to cause disruption fear or injury"

Public nuisance?

Not forgetting the gang of Brits and an American up at the Old Bailey who planned to make a nuisance of themselves by blowing up the Ministry of Sound.

Presumably we should all just cross our fingers when it comes to reading articles like this.

"Spy chiefs fear that it is a case of "when, not if" Islamist terrorists launch a "dirty bomb" attack against London or another western capital, The Sunday Telegraph has learnt.

Security sources have disclosed that the belief amongst most intelligence agencies is that a chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) attack, using a so-called dirty bomb, is now inevitable".

Oh well. Suppose ill just have to go along with the idea of 'no more inappropriate action from the police', hope for 'good community engagement' on the part of home grown terrorists and well, basically, keep my fingers crossed my quality of life isnt affected on the Tube.

What the heck is the "Ministry of Sound"? It sounds like a '70s funk band or something!
