"I have shared a link to a delightful interview from a policeman in Plymouth PC Baird telling us in light of the criticism and scrutiny the police face, we must remember how hard they work and how what they do for us takes its toll on them mentally. This policeman asks that before we accuse them of racism we should know of the triggers and stresses our complaints have on them and that they have to endure this just to help us.
This same officer in June, (PC Glen Baird) took pictures with BLM Plymouth and gave them some kind words telling them the police just want to protect persons of colour not harm them. He then a few days ago went on to say when police are accused of racism and bullies it can trigger all sorts mental health issues, apparently."

"When will this vile treatment of persons of colour end?
In Plymouth our police mock us and make no attempt to listen or take us seriously.
Our MPs are just as hopeless.
I'm hoping BLM, can share PC Baird's story from the first link. He wants us to know how hard they work whilst we are criticising them.
By asking us to think of police officers mental health that triggers stresses when accused of being bullies and racist, his words seemed to be trying to discourage accusations of racism and or complaint.
"Can we show Devon and Cornwall police some love?"
They clearly need to be told again #NoJusticeNoPeace and #ICantBreathe"
