Londonders apparently became abusive to some of the Police Officers who were manning the cordons around the vicinity of where a male tried to ram his car into as many people as possible, according to reports in the Evening Standard.
It is alleged that Officers were labelled as ‘jobsworths, “nazi scum” and “fascists” according to claims made by an anonymous Officer who was caught up in the aftermath of what happened yesterday next to Parliament.
It is alleged that even a ‘Treasury official’ was among those who hurled verbal abuse at officers.
The Evening Standard are reporting that the Police Officer tweeted (anonymously):
‘On Westminster cordons today…amazing that the tourists were the ones who were polite and understanding…the local office workers were the rude ones!
‘being called a ‘jobsworth’ ‘nazi scum’ and ‘a facist (sic) all because the road was closed.’
In a later tweet, the anonymous Police Officer noted that the person who called him a “bloody facist” had said to him:
‘I work at the Treasury in a very important role, I’m not a member of the public. I need to get through.’
Social Media training, consultancy, marketing and sponsored posts
According to the article in the Evening Standard, the twitter account concerned had tweeted earlier in the week about ‘weapon seizures’.
When contacted by the Evening Standard, a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police told reporters that they could not comment, as the Twitter account does not belong to them.
We have tried to find the Tweets, but were unable to.
If indeed this is true, which I am sure it is, having had to man a number of cordons myself when serving in the Met, then this wanton act of complete buffoonery is totally unacceptable.
For anyone to think that their ‘right of access’ is more pressing than an investigation into a would-be murderer, really does just go to highlight one of the many things which are wrong with how our current society functions.
If you come up against a Police or emergency services cordon, then its because you are not allowed to go into the area that has been cordoned off – it really is that simple!
If you want to moan at someone because of the cordon, then moan at the individual responsible for the cordon being there in the first place; in this case, the complete and utter t**t who decided to mow down pedestrians and cyclists!
How on earth do people expect the Police to be able to do their job, without investigating what has happened!?
The people responsible for this tirade of abuse, if captured on the Police Officers bodycam, should have their images shared across social media.
Just so that, if ever they need the help of the Police, then the Police can divert their attention to people who actually deserve their assistance.
The abusers should then be made to spend 30 minutes in a cell with a prisoner who is intent on a ‘dirty protest’.
If you are not sure what a ‘dirty protest’ is, then tweet your local Police Force and ask them.
I am sure that they will happily fill you in!
