Letter: I Hold ‘Kill the Bill” Protest Marchers In Contempt

Kill the Bill protest march, Guildford April 24

From: Dave Middleton

In response to: ‘Kill The Bill’ Protesters March In Town For A Second Time

“No justice no peace. F**k the police” the protestors chanted.


Does that include the police who were there facilitating their protest march?

Does that include the police who daily risk their lives, to try to protect people who they don’t even know?

Does that include the police officers, like PC Andrew Harper, brutally killed while attempting to apprehend professional thieves?

Does that include PCs Nicola Hughes and Fiona Bone, killed in a gun and hand grenade ambush, by a man who lured them to his home by claiming to have been burgled?

Does that include Sergeant Matt Ratana, shot dead on duty by a man who he had never seen before?

I could list many more.

To those “young people” who joined in that chant, I hold you in utter contempt.

    I welcome young protesters (they show that democracy is alive and kicking) but they misjudged their slogan in this case. They should be attacking the Conservative Party for cutting the police service while also wanting to use them as a private force to protect Conservative Party interests. Abusing the police for the actions of Boris and his pals is unfair.

    May I point out that the title of this letter is not mine, but the editor’s.

    I do not hold all of the Kill the Bill in contempt. Just the ones joined in with that disgusting chant.

    Plainly these protesters have never lived in genuinely dangerous places. Anarchy may appeal to the very naive. But those who have lived with real fear of murder know better.

    Try opposing Lukashenko in Belarus or Zanu-PF/Mnangagwa in Zimbabwe – or even living on a council estate in England run by drug gang.

    Facetious references to the Nazis only reveal that the protesters know little or nothing about what happened. Have they ever heard of Robespierre?

    They are just silly children but I wonder if there are some more dangerous adults encouraging them?

    No, it’s calling the police out for their racist profiling and their defence of institutionalised oppression.
