Muslim Appeasement – A Prime Example

Posted in America, Britain, England, Europe, Government, Immigrants, Muslim, News, Police, Religion with tags , , , on 25/01/2015 by floroy1942

There are continual complaints in Britain about everybody from the government to law enforcement appeasing Muslims who live among us. While it is necessary to respect the religion of Muslim immigrants up to a point, there are times when people go overboard and this is a prime example.

Standard Police Entry Tactics

Standard Police Entry Tactics

The following is a copy of an e-mail that is currently going the rounds, and while it is accurate in some details, it gives a somewhat distorted view of the way in which Police handle house searches of Muslim suspects.

The e-mail:

THESE ARE INSTRUCTIONS HANDED OUT TO ALL OFFICERS AT C.I.D COURSES AND ANTI-TERRORISTS COURSES IN THE BEDFORDSHIRE FORCE/SERVICE

UK’s Bedfordshire Police’s rules regarding terrorists and dangerous criminals:

If they’re non-Muslim
* Consider the most opportune time of day to be able to arrest suspects with minimum resistance
* Apply all necessary force to enter the premises and arrest suspects accordingly.

If they’re Muslim:
* Community leaders must be consulted before raids into Muslim houses.
* Officers must not search occupied bedrooms and bathrooms before dawn.
* Use of police dogs will be considered serious desecration of the premises.
* Cameras and camcorders should not be used in case of capturing women in inappropriate dress.
* If people are praying at home officers should stand aside and not disrupt the prayer. They should be allowed the opportunity to finish.
* Officers should take their shoes off before raiding a Muslim house.
* The reasons for pre-dawn raids on Muslim houses needs to be clear and transparent.
* Officers must not touch holy books or religious artefacts without permission.
* Muslim prisoners should be allowed to take additional clothing to the station.

I did some research into this affair and found a statement by the Bedfordshire Police that gave the true story. It shows that some points in the e-mail are accurate but there is much more to the story. These guidelines were issued by the National Home Office and Association of Chief Police Officers.

THIS IS THE RESPONSE HANDED OUT BY THE BEDFORDSHIRE POLICE:

This message claims to contain a list of instructions given to police in Bedfordshire in the UK regarding police entry to Muslim households. The list provides information about how police should conduct themselves in Muslim households so that their activities do not offend the household’s residents with regard to their religious beliefs and customs. The protest message decries what it considers to be a continued appeasement of Muslim citizens in the UK and asks recipients to pass on the information so that other British residents will be aware of the issue.

As detailed in the Bedfordshire Police statement quoted below, there are strong similarities between many of the points listed in the protest message and the actual set of guidelines provided to police. That said, however, the following information should be noted:

  • The advice given to police about entry to Muslim households consists of guidelines only, not concrete instructions or ironclad rules as suggested in the message. The information given to police makes it clear that the guidelines “should not impinge on, or supersede the objectives of the police action”.

  • The guidelines used by Bedfordshire Police are derived from National Home Office / Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) guidelines. Thus, the guidelines were not created specifically by the Bedfordshire Police.

  • The Bedfordshire Police statement notes “that the same considerations and respect for faith and diversity are always applied no matter what the belief of the household, Muslim or otherwise.”

In March 2010, the Bedfordshire Police published the following statement on its website in response to an enquiry about the protest email from a member of the public:

Dear Member of the Public,

REQUEST UNDER THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT Reference No F-2010-00207 With reference to your request for information received on 26th February 2010, I note you seek access to the following information:

The following is an item circulating on the internet which is self explanatory.

Will you please verify to the authenticity of it as true copy or otherwise, put out by the Bedfordshire Police for guidance of its officers.

I am required by the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (The Act) to handle all requests in a manner that is blind to the identity of the requestor. Any information released in response to a request is regarded as being published, and therefore in the public domain without caveat.

In response to your questions, I have today decided to release the information requested in full as I can see no harm to any individual, the community, the police service or other bodies. After considering whether releasing this information will affect the good order and functioning of community, government or other public service affairs, I believe it is in the public’s interest the information be released. The information lies within the arena of public safety and may provide common benefit to members of the community. Releasing this information will not identify any individual or compromise any court case, law enforcement or investigation.

With reference to your recent enquiry and in response to your question I can confirm the following: Response – The item you refer to is incorrect and is not ‘Bedfordshire Police’s rules regarding terrorists and dangerous criminals’ as the website claims.

Bedfordshire Police does have guidance for entering households which was derived from National Home Office / Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) guidelines. While the information on the website is not the same, there are some similarities to our guidance for some basic considerations when entering Muslim households, especially for pre-planned operations, which is summarised below:

  • Innocent occupants of a household such as women and children may be present and Police should never under-estimate the impact of any loss of their personal dignity. Muslim women may be more flexible in their choice of dress at home amongst family members than outside and police entry could contribute to a loss of dignity. Opportunity should be afforded for occupants to cover themselves sufficiently to comply with the etiquettes of “Hijab” if a non-family member is present – and that includes the head for women.

  • The same level of etiquette and respect should be observed in Muslim households as in a Muslim place of worship, such as a Mosque. Female officers must be available wherever practicable to deal with females and there should not be any cross gender contact by the officers.

  • Muslim prisoners should be allowed to take additional clothing to the station. All clothing needs to remain pure for prayer and the denial of appropriate clothing will be a very serious issue for the individual.

  • If possible, officers should not take shoes into the houses, especially in areas that might be kept pure for prayer purposes – nor should they step on any prayer mats etc. This might be difficult in some cases but needs to be seriously considered – plastic overshoes may be an option in some cases if the cleanliness/ purity of the overshoes can be maintained.

  • Non-Muslims are not allowed to touch Holy Books, Qurans, or religious artefacts without permission. In the current climate the justification for pre-dawn raids on Muslim houses needs to be clear and transparent.

  • The aftercare of those not detained must be considered. Sufficient arrangements should be made to offer alternative accommodation to those who are removed from their homes whilst lengthy searches are carried out. If they are not removed from the house they should be allowed some flexibility and privacy.

  • Deployment of family liaison officers should be considered to minimise the impact on the families and the local community.


This guidance is purely of an advisory manner and was written in 2005 at the time of the increased tensions following the 7/7 bombings and applies in the main to Counter Terrorism operations. It is made clear the advice should not impinge on, or supersede the objectives of the police action.

The same considerations and respect for faith and diversity are always applied no matter what the belief of the household, Muslim or otherwise.

While the above is supposed to ensure that Police do not infringe upon the religious rights of Muslim immigrants, it does show that the amount of consideration given to these people is way and above that given to non-Muslims.

If the Police go into a house or apartment of a non-Muslim the first the occupants know about it is the sound of the battering ram used by the Police to smash open the door.

Next they rush into every room, sometimes with guns waving and everyone is told to raise their hands. There is no consideration for the fact there may be women in the house, or even children, and they certainly don’t remove their boots. So I guess if you are a criminal, or wish to become one, converting is Islam is your best option for then you will have a chance to escape out the back door while the police are busy removing their boots at the front.

Integration

Integration

It is indeed sad to see so much appeasement of Muslim immigrants in Britain when even criminals get so much attention. I have often said that if these people wish to move to a western country they have to abide by our rules and respect our culture. But this is not the case when government and others are making such strenuous efforts not to upset them.

In a recent development, publisher Oxford University Press was criticised by politicians for advising UK writers not to include pigs or sausages in books they wrote for children that would be sold overseas. In the Oxford Press’s view this would upset Muslims and Jews. A recent report indicated that some lunatic suggested that children’s piggy banks should be banned because it would upset Muslims.

A Shameful And Disgusting Statement  From Our Prime MInister

A Shameful And Disgusting Statement From Our Prime MInister

I am at a stage when I despair at the way the British people are bending over backwards to satisfy these people and not offend them in any way. We should be standing up for our own way of life, traditions and culture and the message should be, if you cannot adapt to the British way of life there are other parts of the world where you can settle.

We were once a proud race with a history that was the envy of the world, but now we are slowly digging our own graves, and within maybe twenty years or so our culture and way of life will be a thing of the past. Sad to say, but the same is happening throughout many European countries, and even in America but at a much slower rate.

Is This Your Grand-Children In Years To Come?

Is This Your Grand-Children In Years To Come?

To tell the honest truth, I am just glad I will not live long enough to see the end of European culture, or in the event that the people finally wake up, the civil wars on the streets predicted by Enoch Powell so long ago.

Ferguson Aftermath

Posted in America, England, Equality, Justice, News, Police Complaints, Relationships, Teen Violence, Theft, USA with tags , , , on 06/01/2015 by floroy1942

Finally the fury following the police shooting of an unarmed black thief in Ferguson and the following deaths of unarmed blacks in Utah and New York have died down, and life is for the most part returning to normal. But since those events some interesting facts have come to light.

Some NYPD Officers Turn Their Back As The Mayor Speaks.

Some NYPD Officers Turn Their Back As The Mayor Speaks.

Chief among them was the ‘revenge’ killing of two New York police officers as they sat in their car. During one of the funerals last weekend it was notable that many of the police officers turned their back on the Mayor as he was giving his address to the gathered mourners.

Black Gang

Black Gang

This entire episode of the last five months has brought to the surface the deep antagonism between the black population of America and its white citizens. For their part the black population, especially in the more deprived areas, seem to be of the opinion that life owes them something, and this also true of the Hispanic populations as well.

For these people the idea of getting a good education and a job are foreign because they think there are easier ways of making a living, and that usually involves crime. Just take a look at the following:

2010 American Crime Statistics

2010/12 American Crime Statistics

When you read the above statistics it sheds light on one of the reasons why there is so much distrust of blacks in America, because they account for by far the largest proportion of crime, be it drugs, rape, robbery or murder.

They Did It - Why Can't You!

They Did It – Why Can’t You!

What these people need to learn is that if you want to make something of your life you have to work at it, i.e. integrate, get an education and then a job. Always try to get higher up the ladder by improving, rather than sit on your heels and expect someone to give you everything you need. The important thing to remember is that you have to do it yourself, for there are no ‘free rides’ in today’s society.

To a great extent a lot of the blame must fall on the parents, because they are the guiding light for any child growing up. If they have the will to push their children to make something of themselves despite their own failures, we would see more integration between the different communities in America. The following picture tells a lot about the attitude of parents to their children and crime:

A Black Parents View Of Black Crime

A Black Parents View Of Black Crime

From the looks of the placard held by this father, robbing a store is part of everyday life and I guess for some that’s true. It is a police officers sworn duty to uphold the law, so what do these people think he should do when a black teenager runs out of a shop with a gun in his hand after robbing the place? The teenager is certainly not going to put his gun down and allow the police officer to arrest him. So the inevitable happens.

Corner Stone Of A Strong Country

Intergration – Corner Stone Of A Strong Country

If the black population decided together to leave the ghetto’s and fully integrate with the white population who knows what could be achieved. It is certain that to begin with the road would be difficult for their will still be the basic distrust among the white citizens for the black man, but by hard work and advancement this could eventually be overcome.

If the black population really want to integrate there is no real reason why America should not have a true black or Hispanic President at sometime in the future, if that person has made the effort to improve him/herself sufficiently.

All Americans need to understand that to move forward together, they have to work together, for it is only in this way that the country can fully prosper.

Race hatred is a bad thing, but like it or not, we all share the same planet and must learn to live with one another.

The UK Riots – Now The Blame Game Begins!

Posted in Britain, Conservative Party, David Cameron, Demonstration, England, Government, Justice, Modern World, MP's, Nick Clegg, Parliament, Police, Police Complaints, Political Correctness, Riot, Teen Violence, Teens, Theft, UK, USA with tags , , , , , on 15/08/2011 by floroy1942

As always, as soon as the trouble is over the mud-slinging begins. Everyone from politicians, to police, and the public, must have their say, which lets face it, is not such a bad thing in itself.

Do You Expect People Like This To Give In To The 'Softly Softly' Approach By Police?

It does annoy me however when politicians start pontificating and laying much of the blame on the police for not being, in their words, ‘Robust Enough’! Bullshit!

The thugs responsible for the violence and looting knew police hands were tied, and took full advantage of the fact.

Ask Him If He Agrees With Your Opinions!

At almost every major disturbance in the last twenty years, our police have been pilloried for their ‘robust tactics’! When things got tough officers reacted, often to save themselves from harm, and what do they get, hung out to dry!

Some protester or other would be filming events, and as soon as a police officer touched someone with a truncheon, no matter how justified, the cry of ‘police brutality’ went up, and the officer concerned ended up in big trouble, and sometimes in front of a judge!  

It is not considered an ‘illegal use of force’ when protesters batter the police, in fact many ‘sick’ people enjoy the spectacle. In many cases our law enforcement officers suffer serious injury to keep you safe, but ‘lo and behold’, if any policeman raises his baton in even a threatening gesture against a rioter bent on destruction, it’s ‘off to the stocks’ with him.

Should He Be Battered Because He Is Not Allowed To Defend Himself?

The police leadership have obviously learned they can expect no backing from either politicians or the public in such situations, and have reacted accordingly. Good for them! But now what do we hear? The police failed to do their job effectively!

This sort of reaction makes me quite mad, for our police do not deserve this. It seemed to me, that this time they operated within the boundaries set for them by the general public and politicians, and still it’s no good!

As I have often said , ‘Damned if you do, and damned if you don’t!

Folks, you either give the police the power to crack a few heads and use the correct tools for the job, or you have them stand on the sidelines. You can’t have it both ways.

Thrown To The Wolves By Society!

We have always had one of the finest police forces in the world, but people these days want them to fight the kind of mindless destruction we have witnessed – in handcuffs.

Just as important is the reaction of the justice system, which is giving rioters and looters, some as young as nine-years-old, nothing more than a ‘slap-on the-wrist’ because of their age. Rubbish! If that’s not incentive enough to go out and do it again I don’t know what is!

Wow! Some of these looters have actually been banned from entering some 400 city centre stores in Manchester. Now that’s a master stroke that will really make an impression! I wonder which genius thought up that load of twaddle!

When Violence Rules The Streets Your Only Protection Is The Police

The real answer is to give the police the power to crack a few heads, and believe me, the thugs will think twice before going on the rampage again! I know the old saying; ‘Violence Begets Violence, and that may be true, but I am sure if our police were given full backing to use proper ‘robust tactics’ we would see a rapid end to such situations. This sort of violence requires a crackdown as hard as we can make it, and only then can you be sure it won’t happen again! The only law many of our young people today really understand, is the that of the iron fist.

How Would You Like To Be Burning From A Petrol Bomb?

When the next episode of this saga unfolds, as it will, the one thing that will deter any future repetitions will be for these thugs to see fifty or more of their friends lying in the street needing hospital treatment. Yep! I know, it sounds hard, but the police will only have to do it once, for if you want to stamp out mob violence then you give as good as you get!

I am well aware my views may be radical, but if you want peace on our streets, and instill some form of discipline on our wayward youth,  you must allow the police to take off the kid gloves and become a real  force for good – again!

Roy.
