Police should ignore public opinion
I see over the weekend that the backlash over the Forest Gate terrorist raid has started as it now becomes clear that intelligence in this matter was clearly wrong.
I have no doubt that we will see endless criticism of the police and security services, over the next few weeks. I feel that police and security services are in a difficult situation, they are dealing with a ruthless enemy, who hide amongst the community they claim to be part of.
This time last year who would have thought that there was anyone within our British community sick and twisted enough, masquerading as pious religious men to feel they were justified to murder 52 fellow countrymen and women with 700 injured.
The plain and simple fact, is that there is a global war initiated by so-called fundamentalists, who have no humanity about them whatsoever they masquerade as followers of whatever, their hatred for the West knows no boundary, how did Madrid ever become one of their targets, last week police intervened in Toronto foiling two large cells of these maniacs.
If people think our police and security forces are over-zealous, just ask yourself this what has Canada ever done to offend anyone.
Clearly the police and the security services owe the two brothers concerned in this raid firstly an apology and, secondly compensation in proportion to their injury. But let's hope that the police never give a second thought to public opinion, some of which is generated by apologists for extreme views. I think at the end of the day, the only place to lay blame is the sick deranged cowardly perpetrators of this global terrorism.
