The Met is out of control

First…

…one of its officers abducts and kills a woman. It takes days to ID her body, on the basis of dental records.

Then…

…other officers manhandle and arrest women who want to hold a vigil for this woman and claim the right to breathe freely while female without encountering abuse and violence.

I haven’t found the word yet that describes the Met’s behaviour.

The words “provocative” and “oppressive” come to mind and I hear an echo of regimes like Gaddafi’s in Libya, the suppression of the Uyghurs in China and what’s going on in Myanmar and Hong Kong.

And the right to protest and demonstrate – a human right – is about to be demolished if the proposed new legislation passes that will accomplish this.

This should be making all of us very nervous.

Because… what exactly is going on here?

Because this does not add up from a democratic point of view.

Even Priti Patel – OF ALL PEOPLE! – wants the Met’s actions reviewed.

Were the Met’s actions a protest against this new legislation that will curtail the right to protest, demonstrate and hold candlelight vigils? Or is the Met an organisation of callous sadists?
