Why the London Metropolitan Police Face Charges Of Racism

by Neil Bamforth

The London Metropolitan Police are trying to find ways of combating gang violence. One of several innovative methods they are using is a ‘matrix’. This matrix is intelligence-led and identifies people either in gangs or people who have been the victims of gang violence.

The police tell us as a tool to combat gang culture and violence it is invaluable.

The police officers compiling this matrix couldn’t care less from which ethnic group people are from. They merely compile it via factual intelligence.

Unfortunately for the police, 80% of the people in this matrix are black or Asian.

The breakdown is as follows :

White – Northern European 10.5%
White – Southern European. 2.3%
Black – 78.2%
Asian – 6.5%
Chinese, Japanese or South
East Asian – less than 1%
Middle Eastern – 2.2%
Unknown – less than 1%

The ‘usual suspects’ such as the Institute of Race Relations have already begun the cry of ‘racism’.

When oh when will these idiots actually wake up and smell the coffee?

The Met Police compiling this matrix couldn’t care less what color the people are. All the London police care about is catching violent criminals and protecting the innocent.

Yes, certainly there will be the odd racist police officer just as there will be the odd corrupt officer.

The police are recruited from society so, despite close vetting, the odd bad egg will always slip through.

To suggest institutional racism in the police because an intelligence-led matrix shows the vast majority of gang members and gang violence victims in London are black is, frankly, pathetic.

Most of us could have told them that without a matrix – albeit we couldn’t have been so accurate on percentages.

Instead of squealing the standard mantra of racism, perhaps the ‘usual suspects’ could make themselves useful and try asking ‘why?’.

The 78.2% being black includes victims of gang gun and knife crime.

The vast majority of gang violence is black on black, so this matrix is actually trying to help the police help black people from being victims – along with identifying gang members.

Perhaps the ‘usual suspects’ might look at the possible causes of this gang culture amongst young black British men.

Perhaps, instead of squealing ‘racism’ they could try and help change the potential causes.

Fatherless children. Unemployment which, amongst young black British men, is significantly higher than in any other group.

The police identifying serious gang problems are not racist because the majority of gang problems are from the black British community.

The police matrix actually confirms we have a problem.

The problem is clearly an increasing alienation from normal society for a lot of black kids.

The police should be commended for so accurately showing this via their matrix.

Now. What are we going to do about it British government? You’d better do something and quick.

These kids don’t need race equality organizations squealing at the police.

They need help rejoining society. They need a future that encourages them to do just that.

Good grief. I’m starting to sound almost like a liberal.

    Police in America, particularly in large metropolitan areas, have the same problem. When working to prevent crime, catch those who commit crimes, and understand crime as it occurs in lower-income neighborhoods, where the majority of crime occurs, almost always find themselves subjected to cries of racism. The fact is, at least in the United States, African Americans are responsible for the majority of crime in large jurisdictions, almost always committed against each other, and the police, in an attempt to ameliorate these sometimes desperate situations, come under attack from the Left more often than not.

    In New York City the police started an aggressive “stop and frisk” program. Almost immediately, the cry of racism went up, because the police were targeting blacks. Stops were conducted randomly in high crime areas and the majority of high crime in these areas was committed by African Americans.

    During the stop and frisk initiative crime (homicide) dropped in the targeted areas, translating to a lower homicide rate city-wide. The stop-and-frisk era formally drew to a close in January 2014, when newly-elected Mayor de Blasio settled the litigation that arose and ended the program.

    Most recently, journalists pointed to an increase in murder as a renewed cause for concern in the Big Apple. Commentators are saying the uptick is only the beginning, in part because the city has wound down its controversial “stop-and-frisk” program, in which police stopped and searched citizens, allegedly without cause. Well, that’s just not true, at least not in the four years since the suspension of the program.

    Ending stop and frisk, at least the manner in which stops were conducted, did not cause an increase in crime. Fact is, the police were doing their job, and it was most effective during its operation, but it didn’t stop the cries of racism. My sympathies to the good men and women of the Met.

      We had ‘stop and search’ over here. Again, in areas predominantly black, those stopped and searched were, not surprisingly, predominantly black.

      Gun and knife crimes in those areas plummeted – until the left cried ‘racism’.

      Stop and search stopped and up went the crime.

    You can’t have a good conversation about race without being branded a racist, because there’s no truth there, because finding it is one thing but articulating it is another. A friend of mine walked into his office one day and told a female staffer, a black woman, her hair looked nice, then she filed a complaint against him for it and he was forced to resign. They called his comment racist. Fucking bullshit!

    You can have a good conversation about race without being called a racist, but this ain’t it.

      I disagree with your assessment, although you do reinforce Mr. Mahoney’s point, as well as Mike’s, that any open and honest conversation about race and race relations may well end up in accusations of ‘racist’ being leveled at the respective conversant. Secondly, Mr. Bamforth’s article points out that even the most well-intentioned study of race and crime can be construed by those allergic to a realistic assessment of said race and crime, to be racist. In conclusion I found the original post and Mike’s well researched commentary interesting with respect to both political correctness and race in both Britain and America.

    The Right gets called racists and Left gets called politically correct, so what. As soon as racist and politically correct pop up in, so called, honest discussions, not honest at all. Somebody has to police the police.

      Agreed. However, facts are facts so, how is it racist to have a matrix based on fact?

      Is it racist to show the truth – that most gang crime and victims of such are black?

      It has to be acknowledged. Then action is needed to help these people get away from gang culture.

      I can’t see any racism here myself. The truth isn’t racist surely?

        Almost everything you post puts some ethnicity in a bad light, rarely positive, sometimes mocking. Then talk about ‘truth’ and ‘facts’.

          Fine. Then I’ll talk about white trash – known as ‘Chavs’ here. They are white British scum. Anywhere they go / live they cause trouble and commit crimes.

          Next post will be about white British Scumbags.

          A Scumbags is a Scumbags whatever their race, creed or color.

            Whatever you write about I’m sure it’ll be negative.

              Oldham Athletic! David Bowie! England! Animals! Forests! The Pennines! The Lake District! Beer!….lots of positive things to write about! 😀👍🍺
