Playing the race card

16 02 2010

After the dishonourable actions of the Black Policeman Association’s (BPA) former leader Ali Dizaei, many ‘white’ police officers are calling for the group to be disbanded along with the Muslim (NAMP) one.  No word on the Christian, Pagan or gender-bender ones though.  Then again, none of those groups have a history of corruption or courting controversy (or sticking their noses into politics), well, apart from the LGBT group but last time I checked, there isn’t too many to worry about.

Black police organisation must be scrapped, say white officers

Jailed Met commander Ali Dizaei may lose his £1 million pension pot

A group of white police officers is campaigning to have the National Black Police Association disbanded following last week’s jailing of Met commander Ali Dizaei, a former president of the association, who was sentenced to four years for corruption.

Keith Jarrett, another former president, said: “A number of colleagues have called for the NBPA and the BPA [Black Police Association] to be wound up. I don’t mean black colleagues; I mean white colleagues.

“Those police calling for the BPA to be scrapped … show an ignorance of race relations in the UK.”

It has also emerged that members of the Metropolitan Police Authority met in secret last Wednesday and agreed to denote Dizaei as a “special case”, a decision that means they can fast-track disciplinary action against the senior officer and could see him dismissed from the force next month.

It is the first time the MPA has decided that action against an individual police officer is so urgent that it is designated a “special case”.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission and Dizaei himself were formally notified last Thursday that he will be subject to the MPA’s most extreme disciplinary measures.

A hearing will take place next month to determine the fate of the 47-year-old Iranian-born officer. Options include dismissing him from the Met, while the MPA can also strip him of his reported £1m pension pot.

Jarrett also revealed that the NBPA had moved to disown Dizaei. Officers believed that his behaviour has undermined the efforts of black and Asian officers to improve race relations, particularly within Scotland Yard.

Those who say that these organisations exist to give a sense of belonging to an alienated group miss the bigger picture.  These groups are like unions and hold large sway over Police decisions, with the ability to mobilize a block vote on policing matters.

Yet how are they supposed to be accepted as our own when they form their own groups such as these?  And how is alienating whitey going to help with community cohesion (I shiver whenever I write that)?

The answer of course it wasn’t meant to.  Just as we learn than Climategate, NuGov’s turd world importation scheme and the dreaded EU, we’re told one thing while the Bastards that Be set about doing the opposite.
