A Police Officer has come under fire for playing badminton with a homeless camp in Manchester. 

But we think good on you sir, you are building fantastic links with a protesting community, gathering vital intelligence, being a listerner, making yourself approachable to the community, showing you care and most importantly being a HUMAN.

It is very rare we manage to see the human side to police officers, so don’t be quick to judge the situation. They say tax payers should not be paying the bill for a cop to play badminton.

Infact there is much more happening in this game of badminton that you could ever imagine.
