PSNI's religious quotas harmful

Published 23/08/2013

Given requests for 1,000 new recruits for the PSNI instead of a paltry 100 one has to question the continuation of religious quotas in the force.

If any bias might now be appropriate it should be towards the under performing working class Protestant males that are continually being analysed.

Good professional policemen born and raised in Ballymacarett may have more influence than any of the inept leaders of unionism who patronised us for generations.
