The British government is hiring people for their police departments who cannot read or write and even some who are convicted of crimes in order to make Muslims feel better and to satisfy “diversity” goals.
This is what the lunacy of woke leftism does to endanger the people.
Per The Blaze:
An inspector tasked with assessing police forces and policing has concluded that in the pursuit of this allegedly “noble and right” end, the Met police have dropped their standards and in some instances accepted applicants that could not competently read or write in English. Some recruits also happened to have significant criminal histories.
The Guardian reported that former Met Commissioner Dame Cressida Dick and London Mayor Sadiq Khan hammered out a deal in 2021 to ensure that 40% of new recruits came from black and minority communities. This was, in part, reportedly a decision made in response to the death of George Floyd and the BLM riots that ensued in the United States.
Prior to this arrangement, the target for representation on the basis of preferred immutable characteristics had be 19% of the overall force. At the time the arrangement was made, 15.4% of the force was black, Asian, and minority ethnic, or what English authorities lump together as “BAME.”
Khan’s administration suggested that the initiative was “generational,” constituting “the most significant changes to policing and black communities since the Macpherson report.”
Remember, in the UK, “the black community means Muslims and immigrants.
This is all absolute lunacy.
This kind of foolishness is just more evidence of the left’s weakness on crime.
Leftists make every citizen less safe. In every country, Everywhere. Every time.
