Riot Force

Today’s Times carries a disconcerting picture of riot police just before they go into action in London.

Operation Mista took place yesterday and it involved 1000 policemen and women. The targets concerned drug dealers, money launders, receivers of stolen goods and forgers. 56 addresses were raided. The picture says it all.

1000 policemen in a series of raids – that’s why when you call the police on a Friday night about social disorder they never turn up till Saturday.

As somebody on the Times blog said - surely 3 policemen on these streets 365 days a week would have stopped all this crime.
