Jeffrey A. Tucker takes aim at the Australian notion that police and government will always protect the average citizen.
When interviewing Jeffrey I quietly questioned his assertion, but today I had a conversation with a former CIRT (Critical Incident Response Team) member of Victoria Police who absolutely confirmed the same culture emerging in Australia where command officers instruct those on the ground to hold back and wait to cover their own lack of decision making.
On the ground team leaders then offer to go in anyway without authorisation of the commanding sergeant…which is accepted by the sergeant as long as any negative outcome of the decision reflects on the grunt, not the sergeant.
I’m told this culture of backside covering is rampant and increasing, especially when OH&S, equity and compliance issues mount as gender quotas fill our most critical emergency services.
In other words, police become primarily concerned about preserving themselves (life, health, career) and the population suffer through this paralysis.
