UK: Met police are terrified in radical areas of the capital; Police cannot travel to work in half-blues out of fear

UK: Met police are terrified in radical areas of the capital; Police cannot travel to work in half-blues out of fear. By Martin Robinson. from December 2015. One officer from Yorkshire said on the online forum Police.Community:

I’m not allowed to travel in half blues to work anymore IN MY OWN CAR as we’re ‘All at risk of attack’ – yet as soon as someone points out the obvious it’s ‘divisive.’

[Denials of non-go areas and Islamification by] our political leaders are best either ill-informed or simply being disingenuous.

[Trump’s] pointed out something that is plainly obvious, something which I think we aren’t as a nation willing to own up to — do you think a US Police Department would ban officers from wearing their uniforms under jackets etc due to FEAR of their cops being killed by extremists?

We implement half measures such as ‘No-one is allowed to come into work half blues’, even in your own cars because if you get beheaded it’ll be your own fault.

It would be seen as un-American, un-democratic, not the done thing… In the UK though we accept it.

One female officer in the Met said:

If a police officer was attacked it would be written off. Even if one of us did get killed or dragged off in a van. It would just be reported as a ‘one-off incident’ and no reason to change the ‘British style of policing.’

However Donald Trump copped the blame from the PC crew:

Seven people every second are signing a government petition to ban Donald Trump from Britain for ‘hate speech’ after the tycoon’s claims that police in London ‘fear for their lives’ because some communities are so radicalised.
