Pop a copper

I meant to point to this extract from the Copper's Blog in The Mail a while back, but I think that I may have blotted it from my mind owing to the fact that stories like the one below depress me so much.
After years as a police officer, I have long given up expecting people to act in a certain way—women to behave with decorum, parents to look after their children.

Take a call I had recently. 'A 12-year-old girl has been missing for a few days,' said my radio. 'Please attend the address.' I tried to get the details from her mum and mum's partner but this was a bit difficult over the noise of daytime television.

I wasn't getting anywhere so I set off. My first call was to the girl's school—and there she was. I returned to the house—some 800 yards from the school. 'She's at school, she's fine,' I said.

'That's no good,' said her mum, one eye on the TV. 'I want her back here.'

'How about nipping up there to see her yourself?'

'I haven't got a car', she replied.

'Well, the school is only up the road.'

'You could walk.'

'I'm registered disabled. Look,' she continued, as though speaking to an idiot. 'She could be out there being abused right now. I want her back here. It's your responsibility if she gets abused.'

She shut the door in my face. I collected the girl and brought her home. 'Could you please ensure she doesn't run off in the future?' I asked.

'No,' said her mum. 'I can't do nothing about it. I'm not stopping in all night.'

'But you're registered disabled,' I said. 'Where are you going?'

'Out.'

'So if she goes again will you call the police?'

'Yes, it's your responsibility.'

Next time you get burgled, you know where to find me: I'll be out looking for children whose parents can't be bothered to look for them themselves.

If I win the Lottery, I think that I might buy myself a nice island, move there and never read a newspaper again. As I keep saying these days, the one constant assault on my (yes, OK, qualified) libertarianism is the stupidity and boorishness of people in general.

Mind you, perhaps I could just buy a nice deep mineshaft and shove pieces of cunt-filth, like that scummy, awful bitch, down into its dark depths...

Or alternatively, you could retire to the wilds of Scotland, some distance west of Thurso and talk to the rocks.

If the girl was at school (during school hours) why was she removed from it & brought home?

Oh, this anecdote just fills me with deep, boiling rage... I want to confront this woman and just punch her in the face again and again until she begs for mercy.

Is that wrong?

This is why stupid people shouldn't breed. May I please be in line with you to help with the pushing? Cheers.

Dont ya just love the fact that we end up ruled by an insane clown freak thanks to dozy fucks like this. People like this should be sterilized and have their vote taken away.

"People like this should be sterilized and have their vote taken away."

Um, NO.

We end up enslaved by the state becuase we do not assert our freedom of association and freedom of speech.

Socialism Kills.

There is a lot of it about. It is depressing. Despair is never having to say you are happy.

You can get halfway there by simply moving to a nice (ahem!) island and never reading a newspaper again, like me.

Sadly there are people like this woman out there and my blood boils about them as well.

The solution however is not to turn Britain into a fascist eugenics state as you suggest. In fact it is precisely because of the neglect of education by Tory governments that we have so many ignorant people like this woman. The solution is education not sterilisation. You lot would have loved Keith Joseph.

indeed Devil's Kitchen - thats the downside of libertarianism. much as you'd like to beat the fucking crap of out idiots like that, along with a long long spell in a siberian gulag - well, libertarianism means that you just cant.

your remote island option is something i would would choose as well.

Women like this are the product of 60 years of the welfare state. She does not lack education as Neil Harding suggests, she has learned every lesson that her socialist mentors have taught her. Not only has she learned the theory, but her practical application of the theory is flawless. Neil Harding you should celebrate, you see before you the fruits of your lifetime of political activity.
