In Policing, What Was Satire Just Two Years Ago Has Now Become Our Reality.
Just two years ago, Studio C, an American comedy TV show produced in Utah, released this satire on modern policing in America:
The clip, titled "Political Correctness Puzzles Police" has garnered over 1.3 million views since its release. It shows a typical day of operations at a modern police station, but if all the rules and norms of political correctness culture were applied by upper management.
We quickly see how insane the premise becomes when the police captain in the sketch demands that descriptions of suspects avoid use of race, culturally-appropriated items and even height due to their potential to offend just by virtue of being named.
The sketch ends with two police detectives hilariously issuing warrants for a "juniper bush-height thing with a nice face who dresses fancy" and a "human being wearing pants." The captain praises them for their political correctness and wishes them good luck finding "her, or him, or it."
Two years later, police departments in real life are being crushed by an all-too-real PC culture. The latest target in the left's attack on American law enforcement is the Bay Area Rapid Transit Police Department (BART PD), where the PC culture of the Bay Area has created an environment where even mentioning the race of suspects could draw accusations of racism.
From Fox News:
It seems cut-and-dry: a robbery with 30 suspects caught on camera. Like many police departments across the country, the BART PD could benefit greatly from the public's assistance by releasing the footage and setting up tip-lines to help catch the perpetrators.
However, instead of holding delinquent juveniles accountable for their actions, they are rewarded with preserved anonymity. No wonder crimes like assault, robbery and rape on BART trains have increased 41% over last year. Criminals are bolder than ever.
Stay alert. Stay alive.
