Good letter. Is it possible, objectively, that the police have suddenly gone from the best to the worst? Of course not. It’s all (or mostly) perception. Fuelled by social media. The police are not blameless and have made mistakes. But they are not the brutal bullies the protesters make out.
ADDED (10 Dec): maybe “they deserve it”. But what about the rest of us? The silent majority or the silent very-large-minority? I’m happy for them, the protesters, to have their freedom of speech. But my freedom of speech is to say that I don’t agree with their millenarian posturing, for it’s dangerous for all of us. No I don’t accept their offer to “Burn with us”.
