British Prime Minister David Cameron has responded to last week's riots by bringing in outside counsel. On Saturday, Cameron announced that he’ll be seeking advisement from Bill Bratton, an American policeman with a history of combating street crime. Bratton served as New York City police commissioner under Rudy Guiliani, and as chief of police in Los Angeles he overhauled the police department after the 1992 Los Angeles riots. The British media are calling Bratton a "supercop," but the British Police have not taken kindly to the announcement.
For more on this, we're speaking with Paul McKeever, chairman of the Police Federation of England and Whales, which represents England's 140,000 police officers. McKeever believes the problem lies more with the budget cuts, which left less police on the street to help quell the riots.
