I sense a disturbance in the Force…

I mean the Cheshire Police Force. From the Tweet below, it looks like they have openings for wannabe Storm Troopers.IMG_20170803_103653


For those of you not familiar with Cheshire, it’s a relatively wealthy, mostly rural County in the North West of England, with a population of about a million people.

It is nor known for its riots or large scale property damage. Its crime rate is about average (half that of London).

All of which makes this choice of advertising campaign as puzzling as is socially unacceptable. The message seems to be “Join us to put down the unruly mob”

One has to wonder who the “us” is in this context.

I think the police should apologise for this extraordinary lapse of judgement.
