Poignant Peom: The time has now come where the job has no fun. #CutsHaveConsquences



The time has now come where the job has no fun,

Worried and cautious as to who has a gun.

To serve and protect, the vow we all took,

But everyday the criminals will get off the hook.

Making lives harder for those on the beat,

The criminals are always up on their feet.

A game of cat and mouse between us and them,

Only thing holding us together is the support of our friends.

The people we work with, day in and day out.

Not knowing what will happen and if we’ll clock out. 

We get up each morning not knowing our fate.

If only we had some support, that would be great.

Leave our family and friends, to protect all of yours.

Not knowing what stands behind all of those closed doors.

We go in not knowing what to expect,

I just hope to god that we won’t regret.

The question now, is who wants to hurt us more,

The people in parliament or the ones who pledge war?

The difference between them is not all that much,

The goals they both have is to make our lives rough.

We can only pray that the support we will get.

Will be from those who we have helped and will not forget.

The sacrifices we make week after week,

To allow you to live your lives and fulfil what you seek.

We run towards danger as most run away,

To make sure you see the sunrise the next day.

The blue line is getting thinner, something we can’t afford,

Unless you want to face the demons behind the doors.

Let’s stick together through the good times and bad,

Allow us to keep you safe and share the memories you have.

With cutbacks and budgets, the risk grows near,

Don’t allow the MPs to dull down all your fears.

The threat is real to the police as you know it,

Now let’s tell the witch that she needs to stop it!!!

Families warned to drain paddling pools to stop vampire horseflies breeding after heatwave



Vampire like horseflies are breeding like never before as Britain enjoys the longest heatwave in 40 years.

They are breeding like never before with the aide of garden pools and the heatwave.

The NHS is now advising members of the public to drain standing water to stop insects multiplying.

These insects love water and the heat will only help them increase in numbers.

The problem comes when they bite you, more that 9000 people have called the NHS helpline 111 to report these insects bites.

They leave a painful bite which often requires antibiotics if they become infected.

According to Dr Nick Scriven, president of the Society for Acute Medicine, bites from vampire horseflies can be especially sore.

He told the BBC: “They actually give one of the nastier bites, because they take a chunk out of you.”

“They can be very painful, and can take a while to heal, and as result can get infected and need antibiotics.”

Paddling pools are prime breeding grounds for these bugs.

Thug attempted to kill cop jailed for less than 2 years… It should be life



We know you should have faced attempted murder charges, we know your laughing at your sentence. Because you attempted to kill a cop to avoid arrest because you are an idiot.

But be assured when that day comes that you need the police to save your life they won’t hold it against you.

In the early hours of Wednesday, 13 June officers chased a suspected stolen vehicle along the A22 Godstone Bypass, after it had been linked to a burglary in Oxted eight days before.

Officers managed to box the vehicle in (using a manoeuvre known as Tactical Pursuit and Containment TPAC).

During the TPAC, the vehicle swerved into one of the police cars, trying to force it off of the road. Officers managed to box the vehicle in, and it then tried to reverse away from officers, so officers got out of their vehicles and tried to remove the driver (Kidd), this included smashing the windows of the vehicle.

In car video footage shows Sergeant Chris Schultze, of the Area Patrol Team, was on the passenger’s side of the vehicle, but then started to go towards the driver’s side to assist officers.

As Sergeant Schultze was making his way to the driver’s side, Kidd drove forward in what appeared to be a deliberate attempt to knock the officers over the barrier, as seen in the footage.

Sergeant Schultze was initially treated at hospital for his injuries, and was later discharged and is now back on duty

The three occupants (two 19-year-old men from Sutton and a 17-year-old man) were arrested for various offences including burglary, theft of a motor vehicle, and failure to stop.

Ramone Kidd, 19-years-old, of Prince of Wales Road in Sutton, South London appeared at Guildford Crown Court yesterday (12 July), and pleaded guilty to the following:

Dangerous driving

Driving whilst disqualified

Driving whilst unfit through drink / drugs

Actual bodily harm (ABH)

Kidd was sentenced to 23 months in prison, and has had his licence disqualified for three years.

In court, His Honour Judge Moss commended all the officers involved in the initial pursuit and the investigation team.

Detective Sergeant Kerry Akehurst, from the Criminal Investigation Department said: “I would firstly like to echo what His Honour Judge Moss said around the professionalism of the officers involved in the incident.

“The role of a police officer is to protect the public, and each day officers put their lives at risk to apprehend suspects and protect the public. During this particular incident, officers attempted to stop the vehicle, and in doing so, three officers received injuries and four police vehicles sustained damage.”

The 19 and 17 year-old men have been released under investigation for the burglary offences whilst enquiries continue.
