Politically correct cops roasted over gay pride paintjobs

Politically correct cops have been roasted online over a bizarre new initiative to paint gay pride designs on patrol vehicles in a laughable bid to stamp out line hate crime.

A report in the Telegraph reveals that forces across Britain are introducing the so-called “hate crime cars” to encourage people to step forward and report on hate crimes – including whinging to the police about mean comments on social media platforms.

Deputy Chief Constable Julie Cooke of Cheshire Police, who also heads up National Police Chiefs’ Council work on gay issues, says that the “cars are there in the communities on normal policing patrol just to show the community that we want you to come forward.”

She also added the the vehicles are “there to try and give confidence to our LGBT+ community, but also to other under-represented groups” – with LGBT+ referring to the traditional group of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, with the + added to ensure that it also encompasses other niche sexual identities that exist at present or may be invented in the weeks and months to come.

Responding to the farcical news, Reclaim Party leader Laurence Fox declared that “the west is dead” while another social media user quite wisely asked: “Instead of rainbow camouflage, surely a properly and clearly marked police car would reassure everyone and provide a proper visible deterrent?!”

The vehicles have been likened to clown cars as people have asked how British police forces can justify spending money on left-wing vanity projects while crime continues to spiral out of control in many of our major Labour-run cities.

Former police officer Harry Miller, of the Fair Cop campaign, has slammed the lunacy, saying: “We don’t see the Met with special cars for knife crime, even though the number of stabbings in London is appalling.”

He went on to complain: “They have literally tied their colours to the mast and painted their cars with their political leanings. They are painting rainbows on their cars when we have figures showing that only seven per cent of violent crime ends in a prosecution.

“They have moved from policing crime to policing thoughts and speech, because it is easier.”
