How can M&CC whimsically change Constables’ uniforms?

first_imgDear Editor,I have observed what seems to be a change of uniform of constables attached to the City Constabulary of Georgetown, from their traditional dark blue uniforms to light blue tops and dark bottoms. These persons moving around the markets and around the city with these new outfits look more like security guards than Policemen.I would like to know if the Georgetown City Constabulary has changed its uniform just like that, without properly sensitising the public. Police departments all over the world are very strongly traditional, and they want their officers to look like Police officers. In other words, what the public associates with “Police officer”.Most people can identify a Police officer by the official Police uniform. When citizens on a busy street are in need of help, they scan the crowds of pedestrians looking for the distinctive uniform of a Police officer. Drivers who come to an intersection occupied by a person in a Police uniform usually willingly submit to that person’s hand directions. Criminals usually curb their unlawful behaviours when they spot a uniformed Police officer in the area. Many parents teach their children to respect and trust a person in Police uniform. How can the Council just whimsically change the uniforms of their Constables like that?Everyone knows that their uniforms were made of cheap polyester, and were poorly tailored, resulting in their wearers being hot and uncomfortable, and that they faded and turned purple after being laundered a few times, but that does not give them the right to just arbitrarily change them? They just needed to purchase high quality and properly tailored apparel.The traditional dark blue crisp uniforms of the City Constabulary conveyed power and authority. Even the slightest alterations to the style of this uniform will change how citizens will perceive these constables. The City Constabulary uniform is a tradition as old as the Constabulary itself, patterned after the London Metropolitan Police, who developed the first standard Police apparel.These first Police officers, the famous “Bobbies” of London, were issued a dark blue, paramilitary-style uniform. The colour blue was chosen to distinguish the Police from the British military, who wore red and white uniforms at the time.Darker colours may have been preferred for their ease in cleaning and their ability to help conceal the wearer in tactical situations. Dark colours help cover up stains and keep the officer from being easily spotted by lawbreakers, especially at night.Is this change of uniform another hare-brained idea by City Hall officials?With thanks,Riley Matthewslast_img read more

For the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth and the 100th anniversary of the Lincoln penny in 2009, the U.S. Mint will introduce four rotating designs on the back of the 1-cent coin. The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee met Tuesday and chose a log cabin depicting where Lincoln was born in 1809 for the first image. Lincoln as a young man reading a book and taking notes with a quill pen was the panel’s choice for his early years, and Lincoln on the floor of the Illinois legislature won out for the best design of Lincoln in early adulthood. But the panel did not like any of the designs for Lincoln’s presidency. last_img read more

Fans react to the moment when Patrice Evra applauds Eni Aluko’s punditry

first_imgCould Patrice Evra be anymore patronising towards Eni Aluko. Both Aluko and Alex Scott have been the best pundits so far during the World Cup coverage simply because they’ve done their research and know what they are talking about #CRCvSER— Lauren Black (@Lauren_Black9) June 17, 2018 1 Wow. Could Patrice Evra come across anymore patronising to @EniAlu????Applause after her first studio input and then more plaudits after second comments. Successful female footballer also able to talk about the game well. AMAZING! Let’s congratulate her! #GiveMeStrength— Laura-Jane Jones (@MissLJJ) June 17, 2018 Just when you thought punditry couldn’t get any worse – enter Patrice Evra 🤪— Cornish Blue (@1cornishblue) June 17, 2018 However, many on Twitter considered his behaviour to be condescending, with some accusing the Frenchman of sexism.Both ITV and BBC are including female pundits as part of their World Cup teams – with former Arsenal Women’s star Alex Scott representing the BBC in Russia.ITV presenter Jacqui Oatley did her best to move the uncomfortable conversation on after Evra appeared bewildered at Aluko’s knowledge.But this did not stop Evra from applauding the analysis by the former Chelsea Ladies player.Below you can see the a video of the awkward moment and some of the most critical tweets about Evra’s actions. Some peak peak sexism from Patrice Evra on ITV right now – incredible— Ü (@ThoseScouseLads) June 17, 2018 Jesus watching Henrik Larsson and Patrice Evra patronise Eni Aluko constantly is pretty uncomfortable viewing— Tom Simpson (@DasherTS) June 17, 2018 Can someone slap Patrice Evra around the head for patronising Eni Aluko for knowing her football inside out? #itvworldcup— Saloni Shah (@1Saloni) June 17, 2018center_img Evra appeared to be shocked at Aluko’s vast knowledge of the game Patrice Evra is legit shocked by Eniola Aluko’s knowledge. pic.twitter.com/PAKdXcTC4T— Nwanklouto Kanu (@Nigerianscamsss) June 17, 2018 Patrice Evra’s applause is hilarious because Eni Aluko has been ITV’s best pundit with Gary Neville, and Evra has been comfortably their worst.— James Harris (@JamesCHarris97) June 17, 2018 Patrice Evra is facing criticism on social media after applauding comments made by Eni Aluko’s on TV.The former Manchester United full-back said ‘very good’ and jokingly clapped after Aluko offered her analysis of Costa Rica and Serbia’s form ahead of the Group E clash on ITV.
