Antonio Manganelli’s Reply

martinelli_rimborsi-elettorali.jpg

Antonio Manganelli has responded to my open letter. I consider this to be an important gesture. A public response through the Internet by the head of the State Police is a step forward towards direct democracy. In which the Police Service becomes both in fact and in the perception of Italians, a Service and not a Power that depends on the parties. I thank Antonio Manganelli and I hope that every day he reads this blog and its denunciations, to help with his work.



Dear Beppe Grillo,
Willingly I am responding to your letter that allows me to offer some reflections on a topic that is so sensitive and complex.
The unresolved social problems are frequently destined to become, against our wishes, even “police problems”, first generating understandable demonstrations of dissatisfaction, and then open conflict that, more often than not, has to do with public order.
Then it happens that the police officers find that on the one hand they have to guarantee fundamental rights to freedom (freedom to meet up, of expression etc.) and on the other hand, legitimate demonstrations of dissent.
Finding the right balance is not always simple: the only guiding light that can and must be used in their difficult daily work is that offered by the law that society has democratically provided.
It is possible to meet up, one is free to express one’s own ideas. It is possible and it is a duty to responsibly take decisions when one is authorised to do so.
On the other hand, it is possible to call upon one’s reasons to the contrary and it is possible to protest. But how? By preventing others from expressing their opinions? By throwing stones or setting fire to rubbish bins? Slashing the tires of the cars?
By breaking shop windows? We are all convinced that certain ways of protesting do not come within the rules of “civil society” and within the legal order and thus that they cannot be allowed, not even when you have to consider that the rules of “civil society” have been broken beforehand by those who are proposing to take the initiative for the good of all.
A different problem, even though it is closely connected, is that of the ways used by the police forces to require that the rules are respected. You cited events that, exactly by obeying the rules of our systems, are currently under examination by the magistracy, whose turn it is to give a reply. We are ready to take on our responsibilities.
It is the daily heroic actions of the women and men of the police forces, and I thank you for having remembered this in your letter, that reflect the wish to do the work with honesty, a job that we want to be useful for the whole of society, by trying to make as few mistakes as possible, in the thousands of difficulties and the thousand traps that the “street” offers every day.
I try to do my part to the best of my ability, starting with professional education and operational training for all police officers, taking care, as an absolute priority, to respect persons and to respect rights guaranteed by the Constitution. Thank you for the opportunity that you have given me. Sincere greetings.” Antonio Manganelli

Manganelli is just another Italian political SHITHEAD. He has aquired the art of waffling 300 words and say absolutely bugger all. Well done Manganelli.
One question, can you enlighten us which institute of learning in Italy prepares dicks like yourself? Do you also get a degree in Bull Shitting from this institution? Are arseholes like you churned out like in a laboratory?
I would be interested to know.

The answer to Robert Morrison is NO. There are only irresponsable Italians left because they are so screwed up that the left (ascensore) does no longer reach the upper parts of their bodies.

The tragedy is that there are too many Manganellis in Italian bureocracy and politics.

Congratulations Mr Manganelli. You are a typical Italian. You used nearly 300 words to say ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. It's just like going to the Questura, the Comune or any other place where people work for the Government in Italy. Line up for 4 hours then you have the usual responses. "I don't know" or "it can't be done" or "go and see that other person" and then the merry go round begins.

Is there anyone in Italy that takes any responsibility?????
