What's being done about something

Well, that headline isn't strictly true. Not very much IS being done, but I suppose something is better than nothing.
Please, before you read the rest of this post, note what I have to say is not racist, merely factual.
Last night, about 350 people in my extremely leafy part of Glasgow turned up to complain to our local Councillor, David Meikle, Nicola Sturgeon, our MSP, and various other political worthies.
Thier complaints were twofold. The first was to do with high powered cars racing around our streets at double, treble, whatever, the speed limit. The second was to do with the general security of people walking in the area.
To take the second concern first. This is to do with 10 and 11 year old white children walking home from school being attacked by several Asian teenagers. This is a daily problem at the moment. When reported, the police in the area have been doing nothing. If these Asians were caught by some bigger white children there would be bloodshed.
The racing cars are entirely driven by young Asian men. Again, despite inumerable reports, the police have done dothing.
The problem is that the minute a policeman asks an Asian a question, he is immediately accused of being racist. Since the stop and search " sus" laws were changed, there has effectively been no control on Asian and black youths' street behaviour. Just remember that almost all muggings and street crimes are carried out by black or Asian youths. That's not racist, it's a fact.
You may have picked up that PC David Copperfield aka Coppers Blog is going to Canada. Why? because he is fed up with spending 80% of his time on risk assessment and form filling. And even when he actually gets to walk a beat and deal with something, the last thing he wants to do is stop and ask any questions, as he then has to fill out a questionnaire with 40 questions.
The basic problem is that the pact between the Police and parents and adults has broken down. Parents are no longer in control of their children and the Police - despite reams of extra laws - actually have no power to deal with them.
The one good thing that came out of last night was a young Asian girl who stood up and said outright that the problems were caused by Asians. Noone else, of course, dared such a statement.
She also made the point that it was up to the politicians to speak to the leaders in the Asian communities to get them to take control of the situation. I personally think that's entirley worthy, but completely wrong. Our laws are enforced ( ha!) by our Police. If another authority is being deferred to, then heaven help us.
Because if the Police don't get a grip, there will be those in the white community who will take the law into their own hands.

This problem has to be addressed before it gets even worse. Why are the Asians so aggressive in Glasgow?
