Policing drama: discrimination

Jude Collins feels like no one is listening. No one who is Unionist that is; he has something approaching a cult following amongst some online nationalists. This week he poses a series of rhetorical, questions. But of all of them, point one is by far the most enlightening:

“At the rate of 400 recruits a year, with a 50/50 split between Catholics and Protestants, it will take the Police Service of Northern Ireland between 15 and 20 years before the service as a whole reflects the religious make-up of the North’s population.”

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
