Do they get to carry a light sabre? :eek:

 

I know the Imperial Storm-troopers were on duty at the G-20 with the Met.... :rolleyes:

 

Eight police officers serving with Scotland's largest force listed their official religion as Jedi in voluntary diversity forms, it has emerged. Strathclyde Police said the officers and two of its civilian staff claimed to follow the faith, which features in the Star Wars movies.

 

The details were obtained in a Freedom of Information request by Jane's Police Review. Strathclyde was the only force in the UK to admit it had Jedi officers. In the Star Wars films, Jedi Knights such as Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda use the Force to battle the evil Darth Vader, who has strayed to the dark side. Jane's Police Review editor Chris Herbert, who requested the information, said: "The Force appears to be strong in Strathclyde Police with their Jedi police officers and staff.

Hmmm, I remember that last time they had the census, under religion, it did give "jedi" as a choice, yes.

 

Indeed, and an extremely crafty move on the government's part.

 

How to get the 20-35 generation - a demographic notoriously difficult to get any information from - to fill out the national census? Start a viral 'underground' campaign to get everyone to prove just how breakaway and grassroots they are by putting their religion as Jedi.

 

Result: The 'jedi' census had a greater number of the 20-35 demographic responding to the national census than they have in the last 30 years. Clever.

 

 

Whereas Knacker's minions in London seem to be behaving more like stormtroopers...

 

Sadly, yes. See, this is why we have laws in this miserable, hypocritical little mess of a country that makes it an offense to photograph a policeman. Recording the behaviour of people who - at deomstrations - are largely thugs in uniform makes them accountable for their actions to those they serve, viz. the public, which they clearly don't want.

 

Of course, it seems not only reasonable, but entirely proper, to expect that footage, whether taken privately or via public CCTV, should be employed to weed out potentially criminal behaviour amongst the police as well as the public. It was, after all, the Met police who originally claimed that no CCTV footage existed in the Tomlinson case. The footage, which showed serious and potentially criminal behaviour on the part of an officer that may have directly led to a death, became available - and headline news - and the Met issued a statement declaring that maybe it did exist after all. What the public have is a clear and understandable expectation that police officers will, when recorded engaging in misconduct or potentially criminal activity, be investigated and if necessary brought to justice, just as a member of the public would/should be. This series of latest headlines sadly appears to suggest that that expectation is not a realistic one.

 

Or, put more simply, I suspect some of Knacker's finest take Plato's concept of the Noble Lie a little too literally...
