Re: One policeman doing his job on London trains

The police are rude and aggressive-no wonder the black community regard white police as oppressive.No diplomacy,no please and thankyou.This sort of thing must alarm Cressida Dick-all those hours of training wasted.He should have sought cooperation,and if not forthcoming,moved on.The other passenger...
