There are several major European police forces in crisis. After politically correct initiatives and preferential hiring practices effectively demoralized them, many of these constabularies were forced to deal with what effectively amounts to the downloading of national security to the municipal level. What should be dealt with at the border is now being dealt with in Europe’s major cities by hard-pressed law enforcement.
When governments decide that they are going to pursue open borders policies and suicidal levels of migrant intake, they cede security to other jurisdictions who are not able to cope with the pressure. Even if municipal police forces were at full strength, they would be hard-pressed to deal with the exponential rise in crime that has resulted from the migrant crisis.
Unaccountable to the public and consumed with ambition, many European police chiefs ignore public opinion so that they can pursue their political aspirations. Hence the emasculation of officers and the hiring of hostile foreigners. The true job of the police is to be “beastly to scoundrels.”  Thanks to internal and external forces this is becoming increasingly difficult.
