The power of the people.

Well it seems that people power is making itself known in Camberwell. Read here. Found via Mr Chalk.

Sadly it is the wrong type of people power. The one where people terrorise other people and make them too frightened to lead a normal life. It seems that the police not only are not going to do anything but also said to the citizens impacted 'Staying inside between 3.30pm and 4.15pm is something you are going to have to learn to do'

I wonder if he would be so tolerant towards someone who doesn't believe they should be illegally imprisoned in their homes for nearly an hour and went out and an altercation occurred. Who would be the one being dragged down to the police station, arrested and taken to court? I have the feeling I actually know the answer to that question.

This situation sounds like something you would expect to see in a ghetto in the US or in a third world country. How far we have fallen.

I'm actually interested to see what our police actually do for us nowadays that we could not do a lot better ourselves. British justice. What a farce. Are we going to end up with a situation similar to the US where there are entire areas we will not be able to go to? How bad does it have to get too before we do something about it?

A start would be a locally elected Sheriff or Chief Constable, accountable to the local populace and not the Home Officepecc
