  • About me.

    I know enough to know that at 04.00am it gets dark out on the streets. It has done this for the last twenty odd years, to my knowledge and will probably continue for the forseeable future. At some stage in this ‘future’ I shall retire and probably won’t give a damn if it still gets dark at 04.00am. Until then I shall be out there, somewhere, lurking in the shadows because someone, somewhere will be doing stuff they shouldn’t and then, well then I will introduce myself. In the meanwhile I shall try to remain sane and remember why I joined in the first place and try to ignore all the people who piss me off by making the job more complicated than it should be.
  • Opinions

    Any opinions contained in posts are mine and mine alone. Many of them will not be those of any Police Force, Police Organisation or Police Service around this country. The opinions are based on many years of working within the field of practical operational Police work and reflect the desire to do things with the minimum of interference by way of duplication for the benefit of others who themselves do not do the same job. I recognise that we all perform a wide range of roles and this is essential to make the system work. If you don’t like what you see remember you are only one click on the mouse away from leaving. I accept no responsibility for the comments left by others.

    A Strategic Community Diversity Partnership. We are cutting bureaucracy and reducing the recording of target and monitoring related statistics. Our senior leaders will drive small, economical cars from our fleet surplus to save money to invest in better equipment for our frontline response officers. We are investing money to reinstate station canteens for the benefits of those 24/7 response officers. We have a pursuit policy. The message is that if you commit an offence and use a vehicle, we will follow you and stop you if necessary. It is your duty to stop when the lights and sirens are on. We take account of the findings of the Force questionnaire and are reducing the administration and management levels and returning these officers to frontline response duties. We insist on a work-life balance. We have no political masters. We are implimenting selection processes that take account of an individuals skills and proven abilities for the job. Our senior leaders will have one foot in reality and still possess the operational Policing skills they have long forgotton about and seldom used. All ranks are Police Officers first and specialists second. We will impliment career development and performance evaluation monitoring of our leaders by those officers who operate under that leadership. The most important role is that of Constable. All other roles are there to positively support the role and the responsibility of Constable and the duties performed.

    “We trained very hard, but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganised. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganising. It can be a wonderful method of creating the illusion of progress while creating confusion, inefficiency and demoralisation.”......Petronius
  • Just so.

    Taxation is just a sophisticated way of demanding money with menaces.
  • Reality.

    Only in our dreams are we free. The rest of the time we need wages.
  • Rank V’s Responsibility

    Don't confuse your idea of how important you are with the responsibility of your role.
  • Meetings.

    If you had to identify, in one word, why we will never achieve our full potential, Meetings would be that word.
  • There is always a bigger picture.

    When there is no answer to your problem, there is always deflection from the need to justify giving an answer.

Bob Schofield.

bobschofieldRoyal Navy veteran Bob Schofield, 89 years, was beaten up by burglars after returning home from a Remembrance Day service. What type of resistance did an 89 year old man put up to justify the result in the picture ?

What type of scum would do this ?

How will the scum justify their actions ?

How can they sleep at night ?

They won’t have to justify anything. The law will protect them. They have rights. They will know these rights.

Who will protect the rights of Bob Schofield and those like him ?

  1. Am sitting here incandescent with rage.

  2. I think this is where National Service should be dealt to them all, see what he fought for….despicable in the highest order…

  3. How will the scum justify their actions ?
    All they’ll be caring about is where the money is going to come from for the next fix.

    How can they sleep at night ?
    They don’t ‘sleep’ they pass out in a drug / alcohol haze.

    I can’t find a link to the press report but we had a similar case in Bristol. Old lady beaten nearly to death for that weeks pension. Offender was caught. Came to Court, admitted ‘burglary’ but claimed he’d entered through an open door and found her like that, taken the money and left her in the same state. Perhaps the most sorry part of that story was the jury believed him (despite his previous record) and he was only convicted for the ‘burglary’ alone, not the terrible assault.

  4. There are no words are there? But a question WEB – at what point is it too late for your mate to track someone effectively ? This couple were found relatively soon after the attack, is it not at all possible that the oxygen thieves could have been followed even hours after the event? And accidentally permitted a close and personal examination of that lovely canine dentistry……

  5. I would cheerfully pull the lever on the trapdoor.

    They have no right to Human Rights. They deserve a long and painful death. Do not ever mistake those that did this as even vaguely human. Upright rats in clothes.

  6. This is why we should bring back handguns, as they’re the only thing that can equalise the odds between an OAP and a rugby player.

  7. When they catch them, they should put them in a bright orange boilersuit, chain them together and send them out to Helmand Province as mobile land mine detectors/ bullet catchers for our troops. Really big and hard beating up an OAP. I wonder if they would be so brave if the taliban were shooting at them with AK47′s,,,,,, COWARDS but we all know what will happen if they are put before a magistrate they will be given another chance due to some self inflicted drug habit and will escape with a few hours of community service and a drug rehab program …god help us all

  8. How many times do we have to see photographs like this?

    If the walking pieces of ordure are caught, they’ll be looking at a good few months in the secure community centre with only a telly, Playstation, gym, visits, three meals a day, library, phone, medical care, etc. That’ll learn them.

    Feck’s sake; all it needs is a hole in the ground, a captive-bolt gun and a spade to fill in the hole afterwards. No loss to society – and no expensive upkeep of oxygen wasters.
