FOUL MOUTHED PARIS BROWN SHOULD STEP DOWN AS YOUTH POLICE COMMISSIONER – I am all for free speech and the freedom to express yourself unfortunately this doesn’t give you the right to a foul mouthed, racist and bigoted rant on Twitter, especially when you are the newly appointed Youth Police Commission that is supposed to represent the youth in the UK and dare I say lead as an example.
Unfortunately Paris Brown, after begin given a rather cushy job, as Britain’s first Youth Police Commission, feels that it is more than acceptable to refer to gay people as fags and rant about her binge drinking, drug taking and sex life on Twitter.
Members of Parliament are now calling for her dismissal from the controversial job which is costing the taxpayer £15,000 a year and was specifically designed to represent young people’s views on policing in the UK.
After Paris Brown’s Twitter activity came to light both politicians and members of the public have been left astounded at how anyone could even conceive that Paris Brown would be a fair representation of youth in the UK today.
Some people are asking how Paris Brown could find the time, in her so-called busy job, to amass over 4,000 Tweets in less than a month of which most were highly racist, bigoted, condoned violence and boost about her drink and drug abuse.
The Police have taken a bit of a public relations beating this week; what with the despicable behaviour of WPC Kelly Jones who is suing a Filling Station owner after responding to a 999 Emergency call and tripped on a curb, which resulted in an injury. She is now suing the owner for a staggering £50,000 in compensation which is leaving the public wondering if its financially viable to call the police in an emergency.
Now on top of their worries comes along Paris Jones, many of whom felt she shouldn’t have been given such a position, at the taxpayers’ expense in the first instance.
On scanning the news reports in order to write this article I was, as no doubt you are, depressed to think that Paris Brown represents the youth of today but thankfully it doesn’t appear mainstream considering some of the comments that I read. A number of these comments, from young teenagers, have stated that Paris Brown is not a representation of youth in the UK as a whole but certainly representative of a minority of small minded, foul mouthed bigots that can create an impression that all youth is the same; which is clearly NOT the case.
Paris Brown was appointed by Ann Barnes, the regional Police Commissioner and has defended Paris with the following statement…
“You cannot condone any offensive tweets and I certainly would not accept anything like that now that Paris has been appointed but I wanted somebody for this job who was a typical teenager. There is no way I would think of removing her from her post and I am sure Paris will learn from this mistake and be able to move forward to making a success of the role like I know she will.” Ann Barnes, Regional Police Commissioner
Considering there were 164 applicants for the position I am left wondering what the other 163 were like. Didn’t Ann Barnes bother to do some form of rudimentary background check before making her decision on the appointment of the candidate?
If you are thinking of hitting Paris Brown’s Twitter account @parisbrown forget it, the comments have been removed and she now has an official Twitter account @YouthPCC.
I have to admit that the idea of having a young person in the position to help connect to the youth is a good idea, but a 17 year old kid with such a foul mouth is certainly not the wisest of choices.
