Today felt like a good day in the fight for #freespeech and #freedomofexpression.

Police forces are “not the thought police” said the new Chief Inspector of Constabulary, Andy Cooke.

“Thoughts, unless they become actions, aren’t an offence”, he added.…
As @Tom_Slater_ pointed out for the @spectator, however, the fact that Cooke felt he had to make that intervention reminds us just how bad things have become in English #policing in recent years.…
Cooke is clearly keen to push back – or at least be seen to be pushing back – against the rise of thought policing in our country...…

This govt is busy pretending its #policing bill is about making people, esp women, safer.
That is why there is a whole section on protecting monuments, a whole section on shutting up Steve Bray, a whole section on protecting Parliament.
And nothing about women.
Be in no doubt. From removing the whip from Remainer MPs to cowing the BBC to giving Priti Patel and police a free hand ban "noisy" protests they don't like, this Government is openly making it clear that dissent will not be tolerated.
All this talk of "cancel culture" and protecting the free press is a smokescreen. They are cancelling all sorts of cultures faster than any "woke warrior" and, far from holding the powerful to account, the Press is not just colluding with them, but cheering them on.

The problem with police officers, by someone who used to be one.

Policing needs people who don’t like conflict, and want to keep the peace.

But many people join the police for the power; to be part of a force, not a service.


I didn’t want to be a police officer but I got persuaded into it as an alternative to social work.

I wasn’t naturally forceful, I was hesitant and shy, so I had to learn how to take control of challenging situations.

Some of the dangers I faced came from my colleagues.

In the 1980s police culture was heavily sexist.

Women officers were an oppressed minority. I was the only woman on a shift of men.

When I was on duty one night my supervising officer ordered me to meet up with him so he could check my pocketbook.

Then he propositioned me.

For immediate release: our Task Force on #Policing shares its first three policy assessments, recommending chokehold bans, strict limits or bans on no-knock warrants, & duty to intervene policies. But members didn’t stop there. #CCJPolicing also determined that … 1/5
While chokeholds should be prohibited, such bans must be coupled with other measures to reduce police violence because less than 1% of officer-involved deaths are from asphyxiation. 2/5
To have greater impact, duty to intervene policies should be accompanied by mandatory reporting rules requiring officers to speak up when peers or superiors are engaged in misconduct. 3/5

#YearInReview Here is a snapshot of our interesting work on #policing this year!
The #COVID19 lockdown posed a unique law and order challenge, and the police were at the forefront. @_NehaSinha, @AvantiDurani, @priveda22 & @TveshaSippy curated a list of measures for #police and the prison administration during and post lockdown
Being at the forefront also posed operational and business continuity risks for the police. @_NehaSinha & @TveshaSippy addressed this risk in this blog post published by @IPF…

So by my count, the #CALeg sent 9 bills to @GavinNewsom meant to address #policing concerns in the wake of #GeorgeFloyd and others—and killed 10. If I were in a police lobby, I'd be pretty satisfied with this result. Here's why:
The 9 that survived mostly speed up what police agencies were already doing (banning chokeholds) or offer opt-in reforms, like grants to set up non-police emergency response systems, request-only DOJ reviews and county-initiated sheriff oversight. 3 things:
1. @GavinNewsom hasn't said whether he supports the lone #defund bill. 2. Neither advocates nor police believe the DOJ will prosecute more officers. 3. The politicians who would empower their sheriff watchdogs w/supboena powers are often afraid of their sheriffs' political base.
