This is scary but watch until the end.

The video didn't tell me anything I didn't already know.
Classic example of PC gone mad in the news this morning. A policeman with 29yrs service has been suspended for rascist comments.
He was policing a demonstration by the Kurds. A woman told him to " get out of the way" he replied " don't you tell me what to do in my country"
Says it all for me.

The 'in my country' ending was completely unnecessary and sounds a bit racist to me.

Actually it sounds as if the pair of them are rude and unpleasant.

Good that he's been placed on restricted duties!

In the Daily Mail article, the police officer accused his superiors of 'oppressive political correctness' and said many colleagues are 'afraid to do their jobs properly' as a result.

Absolute nonsense! He could have done his job properly without referring to the activist's or his 'country'.

The police officer behaved totally unprofessionally.

Once Europeans start taking people like Paul Weston seriously, Europe and its values really are in trouble.
