Turns out the met is racist again.
Under 20% of PCSO's are ethnic minorities yet they account for 60% of disciplines.
Now before we carry on about how racist the met are lets look at an unrelated statistic...
Motorbikes account for 2% of road use yet also account for 25% of fatal accidents.
So going by that it shows motorbikes are hated by road users, that car/van drivers are deliberately mowing down motorbikes for no reason.
Now to most sensible people that reason would sound stupid, but going back to the stats posted in a certain paper because a larger percentage of ethnic minorities are disciplined yet they account for a smaller percentage of staff it must be they are being disciplined for being ethnic and the met is racist.
Speaking to 1 Sergeant about this she told me that she would rather give an ethnic minority an informal chat than think about discipline.
Now I am all for EQUAL oppotunites and detest racisim but to coin a phrase from animal farm (no not that one) - some people are more equal than others.
I judge everyone on there own merits and I'm not afraid to call a twat a twat. I got accused of being a racist because I fell out with an asian person I used to know. The reason I fell out with him was because he was a twat - he was a compulsive liar and general arse - that wasnt because he was asian but simply because he wanted to act like that. Now why should I pretend that I like him because his a minority? My boss is an asian and he is a brilliant person so I like him, but again thats because his a decent person not because of his colour (plus his my boss).
Now maybe if more ethnic minority people are being disciplined then maybe its because more ethnic minority people are doing stupid things.
Simply - no-one is perfect and ethnic minorities can be twats too.
