Police Scotland have deleted a tweet from the Edinburgh Police twitter account which said they were tired of the SNP going on about having another independence referendum. It seems Police Scotland are against Scottish independence.
In one sense, it’s good to know where Police Scotland in Edinburgh stand politically.
In another sense it’s frightening to know that our police service in Scotland has very biased political leanings.
This goes against EVERYTHING that a police service is supposed to be.
A country where police crack down on innocent members of the public purely because of their political views is the most disturbing thing imaginable. It has no place in a civilised society. It’s the kind of thing that only happens in dictatorships.
However it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone who has attended a political gathering - any political gathering - in Scotland.
Untrustworthy Police Scotland are always in attendance at these meetings to, as they say, “keep the peace”. But we all know they fly their little drone cameras hoping to profile and target protesters.
Police attend purely in the hope that they might get a few arrests out of being there. The pretence of being there to protect the public is nothing short of laughable (by the way Mr Plod, protesters are members of the public too).
So the next time there is a pro-independence rally anywhere in Scotland, just keep a wee eye on Police Scotland officers and see how they behave towards the ordinary innocent members of the Scottish public exercising their right to peaceful protest.
Don’t be surprised if they’ve reserved a few holding cells for protesters in anticipation.
Because now that we know the motley crew at Police Scotland are openly prejudiced against pro-independence supporters in Scotland, I’m sure we can expect a good number of arrests.
