As the virus makes its way through the Sceptered Isle across the pond the activities of the English constabulary are put once again into high relief.  Drones flying above the moors in search of walkers too far from home undertaking non-essential activities.  Police rummaging through shopping bags to make sure shoppers did not purchase non-essential items when at the store.  The Keystone Cops meet the Gestapo.

In the midst of this awful crisis it is wise to remember that bad behavior by English authorities did not begin with the virus.  There is of course the long-running matter of the “Asian” grooming gangs, ignored by the cops, courts and press.  But here are some other incidents from the last few years.
