Police Resignation letter

sorry for the rather shit title, but i don't know what to call it.

This is a bot of a stupid idea i've had for 2 years.

In Palestine the IDF are handed letters in hebrew asking them to desert. They are either direct letters from refuseniks or powerful collections of info on suicide rates, PT stress all that shit.

Depending on the event, what about something to give to police officers. I'm not saying for onr minute that Police will actually desist on account of the letter, but it may well upset them grin and possibly add to general realisation that they aren't helping things. It makes people facing them down look a bit less spare too.

I'm really not sure about this post, its really poor. I think maybe it makes sense on an action specific basis.

It could have made Sack Parliament a lot more effective - imagine if all the cops had been convinced to resign en masse there and then...

Cops are people too!
(oh no, I must be confusing that warm loving feeling with the blood that ran down my neck when the trucheon came down).

its not about that, i never said... argh!

i shouldn't have posted such half baked shit.

never mind.

Look in a time of heightened struggle when the divides were a bit clearer to people, we would be far more explicit that people should not join the police force as it was anti-social and against their friends and class. It would also make sense to have some sort of mesage for the serving police.

In no way did i envison making random cops down helmets and walk off the job cos i wrote them a poem at the next STW march.

Well - I did a similar kind of thing a few years back. It basically amounted to "you're a class traitor - you've given up your dignity for a uniform" or something. I don't think it was actually likely to make anyone resign though.

weren't the infamous syndicalist trials in the interwar period over something like this (class struggle agit-prop, not naff poems button wink), but with troops not cops? any history buffs (or people who can be bothered to look it up in the history section that's all of two clicks away tongue)?

The "Don't Shoot" leaflet. 1912 - syndicalists prosecuted under the Incitement to Mutiny Act.
