    Police Union Angry at ‘Political Correctness Gone Mad’ on Naming Offenders’ Race

    Police Commissioner Karl O'Callaghan's order to stop using ethnic descriptions has been described as 'political correctness gone mad.

    POLICE say a ban on using ethnic or religious words to describe offenders is obstructing investigations.

    The police union has labelled the policy, a direct order from Police Commissioner Karl O’Callaghan, as “political correctness gone mad”.

    Officers can no longer use details such as a suspect’s nationality, race or religion when seeking public help.

    Instead, they have been told to say if the person is light or dark skinned.

    WA Police Union president Russell Armstrong wants the rule overturned.

    The Equal Opportunities Commission says the ban was introduced six months ago after complaints that using ethnic descriptions was racist.

    The commission said witnesses who made reports to police would often get the ethnicity of a suspect wrong.

    Mr Armstrong said using “scant descriptions” made it harder to catch criminals.

    “If you just turn around and say we are looking for a 20-year-old male, 180cm, with black hair, how many people in the community does that description fit?” he said.

    “If somebody is Australian or if somebody is English or if somebody is Nigerian, wherever they are from, police should be allowed to say that in their description of offenders.

    One police insider said the policy had prevented the capture of suspects.

    “These rules don’t give a true indication of who police are looking for,” the source said.

    “There is a big difference between a dark-skinned person being Aboriginal or African. And if we are looking for an Asian person-of-interest it’s a bit narrow to describe them as simply having fair skin and dark hair.”

    PC wankers, the university and politics is full of them here.

    If their daughter was raped by a racial other on the run they would be the first to whinge about these ridiculous laws.

    How the hell is that 'racist' or 'discrimination'?


    Hey, I have a better idea. Some people might be offended by being punished for their crimes, let's just let them go free!

    Yes, because that description could easily, easily mean a White person rather than an Asian.

    Political correctness would have had to, at some point, been sane for it to have "gone mad" now.

    Could you imagine the police line up. All of the suspects would have to stand behind a curtain so no one would recognise them and pick them according to race.

    Just when you think things can't any more crazy you read something like this.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    Soon they'll say that using physical descriptions is racist. If enough reports of "dark-skinned offenders" are made, and not enough reports of "light-skinned offenders" are made, as it naturally will happen, those PC wankers, and ultra sensitive dark-skinned people are bound to complain. This is complete BS.

    They are just terrified for people to find out that a majority of the crimes (especially sex crimes) are committed by all these Indians and Muslims they keep letting in.

    Not that we don't already know anyway but they have gone too far to admit that all this PC crap has failedm so they will just keep going until we all Revolt or the Muslims and Inidans are killing each other in the streets like they do in their own countries.

    Slowly we are taking the same route as South Africa did and unfortunately the result will be the same as well. This Carl o'Callaghan sounds like a real arsehole to me.

    Someone with a few quid to spare and a bit of imagination should take them right to the edge of this pc crap and drive them crazy with it.

    Instead of putting an end to it i would like to sue the police force for also using gender when looking for a suspect and sue them for sexism....just take it to the extreme for the hell of it and make them look like a bunch of fools...or bigger fools than they already look.
