Police Officers or criminals?
Standards in the police force have fallen to such a low that more than 1600 police officers with criminal convictions for gun crimes, benefit fraud and violent attacks are being allowed to stay in the force! And many of the crimes took place while the officers were on duty, supposedly protecting the public!
The Association of Chief Police Officers confirmed that officers convicted of serious crimes while serving could remain in their post. Unlike members of the public who break the law, they are protected by Government rules called Police and Misconduct Regulations which set down a range of alternatives to dismissal such as a reprimand, fine or reduction in rank.
The revelations came to light after MP Chris Huhne was approached by a woman sacked from her job as a civilian worker at Hampshire Police after being cautioned for a minor crime. Mr Huhne said: "It is deeply unfair that police staff are being fired for minor offences, while police officers convicted of more serious offences are allowed to keep their jobs.
A police spokesman said: 'Hampshire Constabulary adheres to national standards for the discipline procedures for both police staff and police officers. The Home Office sets procedures to be followed for officers with criminal convictions. Police criminals However the uselessness of these "procedures" can be demonstrated by the increasing numbers of police officers being found guilty of more and more serious offences who are still not sacked or who are re-instated on appeal.
Like Detective Sergeant Darren Case and Detective Constable Adam Suett, sacked for gross negligence in the murder of Peter Woodhams
, but after they appealed a senior Metropolitan Assistant Commissioner ruled the punishments were "too severe" and the officers were reinstated! And the fact that Peter Woodhams was dead because of their gross negligence was a minor matter of no concern at all to a police force becoming increasingly criminalised every day!
And in the case of Jean Charles de Menezes, an innocent person gunned down by "accident", Cressida Dick even got a promotion but all the family got was an apology - and a corpse! DON'T LET THEM GET AWAY WITH IT - JOIN NAVIGOR TODAY !
