And I’d like a pony

From the Telegraph:

Police are seeking new powers of “instant justice” to combat anti-social behaviour and bypass the courts, according to reports. The Association of Chief Police Officers (Apco) is considering pressing ministers to dispense punishment without the need for a court appearance.

This sounds like a good idea, doesn’t it? Considering that courts and equal rights before the law are supposed to be proof of our civilization, it can’t be a good sign when Western authorities not only wish to move away from such things, but believe they stand a good chance of getting away with it.

I imagine that if the nations of the West weren’t importing millions of third world quasi-barbarians, it wouldn’t be deemed necessary to devolve into semi-civilized societies dependent upon the arbitrary application of force by the authorities.
