This has gone on for far too long and it is high time that their rules of conduct were changed. Of course that is not what the Political Class want...if they dumb down the Education system, pervert the Justice system, overextend the Benefit system and ignore any subsequent public outcry then they are the only winners! Simple innit!
In the meantime they roll out the short straw senior copper with his piece of paper where 'don't forget to apologise' is underlined! Disgraceful is too nice a word for them!
UPDATE: I have just been watching the pathetic attempts of the senior plod put up by the police on BBC East Midlands to explain how they allowed a savage to kill the mother of his child despite eleven attempts by the girl to get help! I have never heard such utter gobbledeegook. His officers are now watching DVD's to help them recognise domestic violence! He spoke about 'risk assessments' and 'managing effectively' and gave the impression that he had digested the whole political correctness manuel but frankly would not know how to react to save a life! More will die while people like this are in charge!
