Being a police officer, from the humble copper on the beat, to the dizzy heights of commander in chief, is no easy ride.

A Policeman's Lot Is Not A Happy One - a phrase aptly coined by Gilbert and Sullivan in the light opera, The Pirates of Penzance..

WHEN A FELON'S NOT ENGAGED IN HIS EMPLOYMENT (his employment)
OR MATURING HIS FELONIOUS LITTLE PLANS (little plans)
HIS CAPACITY FOR INNOCENT ENJOYMENT (-cent enjoyment)
IS JUST AS GREAT AS ANY HONEST MAN'S (honest mans)

OUR FEELINGS WE WITH DIFFICULTY SMOTHER (-culty smother)
WHEN CONSTABULARY DUTY'S TO BE DONE (to be done)
AH, TAKE ONE CONSIDERATION WITH ANOTHER (with another)
A POLICEMAN'S LOT IS NOT A HAPPY ONE

AHHH
WHEN CONSTABULARY DUTY'S TO BE DONE, TO BE DONE,
A POLICEMAN'S LOT IS NOT A HAPPY ONE.

WHEN THE ENTERPRISING BURGLARS NOT A'BURGLING (not a'burgling)
WHEN THE CUT THROAT ISN'T OCCUPIED IN CRIME (-pied in crime)
HE LOVES TO HEAR THE LITTLE BROOK A'GURGLING (brook a'gurgling)
AND LISTEN TO THE MERRY VILLAGE CHIME (village chime)

WHEN THE COSTER'S FINISHED JUMPING ON HIS MOTHER (on his mother)
HE LOVES TO LIE A'BASKING IN THE SUN (in the sun)
AH, TAKE ONE CONSIDERATION WITH ANOTHER (with another)
A POLICEMAN'S LOT IS NOT A HAPPY ONE

AHHH
WHEN CONSTABULARY DUTY'S TO BE DONE, TO BE DONE,
A POLICEMAN'S LOT IS NOT A HAPPY ONE (happy one).


Every day of their working lives, they risk life and limb looking out for the citizen's welfare and trying to keep our streets free of crime, both serious crimes and petty crimes.  They risk the security of their private lives, their relationships and family life - all for the sake of duty, a duty which always takes precedence over all else.

We live in a blame culture, whenever there is a problem in our lives or our society we look for someone to blame - a scapegoat to relieve our own guilt or excuse anything from a horrendous tragedy to the price of fish.  Heads must roll.

Unfortunately, oh too frequently, the police are on the front line of someone to blame.  They can't win, they're on the front line of duty and on the front line when looking for someone to blame.

Undoubtedly there are bad cops, history has proved that to be fact but that alone shouldn't detract from the thousands of good cops out there, looking after our environment, our neighbourhood and our safety.  It's what they do!

It's long past time to separate the wheat from the chaff, the good cop from the bad cop.  Indeed, forget the bad cop and recognize only the good work of the thousands who have us, our welfare and safety at heart.

Heroes who have risked their lives on the beat, or denied their own safety when confronted by apparent danger - all in the line of duty.

Pay homage here to our exemplary UK police force, from the very bottom right to the very top.

It is a difficult job for a decent person. Many long serving police officers struggle to agree with the recent top level decisions to actively employ candidates with stunted empathy and route out more level headed candidates for the job. That, and the creation of "community support" officers who have only 16 weeks of training, ZERO knowledge of peoples rights and their own their limits of power. This new breed of little street bullies in uniform causes NOEND of problems for real policemen.

REAL police are vital when you need them. The rise of the pc PC has been a disaster for everyone. Here is a tip, if you are being burgled, or assaulted in your home and need a fast police response to a real problem tell the operator you are a victim of a hate crime and they will be at your door immediately.

I think you will find the term police officers more relevant. Women do it too.

I've just been reading a book about a serial killer in 1960s London who killed 8 prostitutes between 1959 and 1965.

He was never caught. The case was called "The Nude Murders" and his name in the press was "Jack the Stripper".

This was a massive case - now faded out of memory - presumably because no one was caught.

The Police had hundreds of people out on the street - at great expense - working ridiculous hours, some of them doing dangerous work (WPCs posing as prostitutes).

They were overloaded and swamped with work - too much - like the Yorkshire Ripper case.

Anyway... the Policeman who headed the investigation - John du Rose - was one of the top 5 detectives at Scotland Yard.

The case died down - because the killings stopped in 1965.

Du Rose retired in 1969 then proceeded to lie about the case in the press and in his autobiography. All to make himself look good.

He was a bad Policeman in it for his own glory.

Anyway I recommend the book... very interesting insight into old Policing ways in the UK and the absolute sleezepit that London was.

With the exception of PeterMac, there is a host of ex-police officers writing nonsense in the media, promoting themselves and coining. How is Colin Sutton doing? How is that 'love me I was a senior copper rascal' Jim Gamble doing? How is How is Mark Williams-Thomas (of dubious rank and experience) doing?

Financially they are probably doing rather well. Morally they do absolutely nothing to pay homage to modern day policing problems.

I apologise, being born in the 60s it can be hard to drop the earlier indoctrination. I still call Firefighters Firemen too, often forgetting the brave work of Lady firemen. Too late to edit it the original post now. I humbly submit my correction, Policemen and policewomen. Police Officers, and the excellent overlooked Police doggies !

This is supposed to be about paying homage to good cops not digging out bad cops.

Still never mind - thanks for your contributions.

Here endeth another attempt to recognize the better side of human nature.

Sorry it was partly about the Police who put in the long hours and did the dangerous stuff - it wasn't fun for the WPCs posing as prostitutes.

Anyway... it's a fascinating read.

I think JimBobJones makes several great points. Happy pigeon feeding.

The Final Inspection

The policeman stood and faced his God,
which must always come to pass.
He hopes his shoes were shining
just as brightly as his brass.

"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To my church have you been true?"

The policeman squared his shoulders and said,
"No Lord I guess I ain't.
Because those who carry badges
can't always be a saint.

I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough...
And sometimes I've been violent
because the streets are awful tough.

But I never took a penny
that wasn't mine to keep...
Though I worked alot of overtime
when the bills just got too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,
though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place
among the people here.
They never wanted me around
except to calm there fear.

If you've a place for me here,
Lord, it needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
but if you don't... i understand."

There was silence all around the throne
where the saints had often trod,
as the policeman waited quietly
for he judgement of his God.

"Step forward now, policeman.
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on heaven's streets.
You've done your time in hell."

And what have we had so far ?
Platitudes, Books of remembrance, ceremonies, standing round the supposed scene with heads bowed, flowers, a fund (for what, precisely ?) Politicians words, Senior officers talking vaguely about the Police "family', endless news stories . . . but what Action ?

On Brexit Day (31 Oct) 1940  when the Battle of Britain came to an official end, Churchill did 2 things
He gave a speech about 'The Many owing so Much to so Few'
and then set about planning the invasion of Europe and the flattening of Berlin with the total annihilation of the evil that lurked within.

We know what needs to be done.  Who has the honesty to speak, and the guts to deliver ?

Speak up, get jailed. Next person speaks up gets jailed. After many thousand speak up and get jailed for hate crime, which is really just pointing out the truth, things might change . . . but until then minorities will continue to abuse the generosity and take advantage of kindness of the majority.
We all know who they are. The police know who they are, the courts CERTAINLY know who they are because they let them off and they keep offending.

They are LAUGHING at us.
