Normally I’d leave things like this for the Lewisham Round Up, but what Romayne is suggesting is so fantastic (as in unbelievable) that I really wonder whether she is willing to stand it up.
The Green Room blog says:
Green Party councillor Romayne Phoenix warned today that local children could be targeted by police Taser squads on Lewisham’s streets.
The way I read that sentence and the story that follows is that Romayne thinks there are police men and women who will be briefed in Lewisham police station to go out and find children to shoot with the tasers.
I’ve been reading the new ACPO guidance on how the police should work with children and young people and that sort of response didn’t seem to me to be the one that the association were looking to engender.
I’ve emailed Romayne to check that her views have been acurately reflected on the blog and await her response.
