Met Police has lost public trust; it is sexist, racist and homophobic

Police: even in the illustration it seems the policeman is mistreating the policewoman.

The verdict is out on the Metropolitan Police – and it couldn’t be more damning.

The force is institutionally racist, sexist and homophobic – to the point where rape might as well be legal in London, according to a report, that took a year to prepare, by Baroness Casey.

Here’s the gist:

Shall we go a bit further into how the Met has failed women in particular?

Analysis by the BBC states,

This report is so ferocious in its criticism that, in the short term, it is almost certain that trust and confidence levels in the police in London – already down – will plummet further.

With forces across England and Wales, like the Met, re-vetting all their officers, more scandals will emerge.

Every misconduct hearing, every court case, is going to damage public confidence.

A generation after the Macpherson report found the Metropolitan Police to be institutionally racist, here we are again. Only worse. Sexism and homophobia are added to the list.

It asks what the solution could be. After all, the situation could hardly be said to have been different in 1972, when then newly-appointed commissioner Sir Robert Mark said he had “never experienced…blindness, arrogance and prejudice on anything like the scale accepted as routine in the Met”.

Current Commissioner Sir Mark Rowley says he needs patience to achieve the turnabout required. Baroness Casey has suggested the Met could be broken up, if things don’t approve.

The situation at the Met proves only one thing: Power corrupts.

And with Suella Braverman as the politician responsible for imposing lasting change, isn’t it more likely that the corruption in the Met will become absolute?
