Why are the met repeatedly saying sorry to a Lord? The same situation happens a million times over with the police stating they have a right to investigate

Published

on

The Met Police have met with Lord Bramall to say sorry. They admitted they were wrong about the situatuon he faced but stopped short of an apology and agreed to meet with the Lord Bramall. 

But what about the millions of people investigated and never arrested or those who are arrested  and remain on bail for upto a year and then never charged. 
It seems that just because he is a Lord the police feel the need to say sorry. They also feel the need to release to the media each and everytime they say sorry to Lord Bramall.

Yes Lord Bramall has been to hell and back. But this situatuon is everyday normal life for those on who face the same situatuon or are left on police bail for months on end to never be charged. 

The Met Police recently released public apology which is hard to get from the police in the first place (even when they have been sued) now they have announced they held a private meeting with the Lord.

On Thursday, 7 April, the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS), Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe and Assistant Commissioner Patricia Gallan met in private with Lord Bramall.
Whilst the content of that conversation will remain private, the Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe expressed, in person, his regret about the distress felt by Lord Bramall and his family, and the impact of having his innocence publicly called into question after a long career of public service.
The Commissioner listened to Lord Bramall’s concerns about the investigation, which will be considered as part of the independent review announced by the Metropolitan Police Service on Wednesday, 10 February.
Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe has asked Sir Richard Henriques to examine the way non-recent sexual allegations against public figures are investigated, and the MPS will publish the key findings of the review and the recommendations later this year.
In view of the media interest in this private meeting, the MPS and Lord Bramall agreed to release statements to confirm it had taken place and to give brief details of the nature of the meeting. We will not be commenting further.

Heartwarming cops share chips with man who hasn’t eaten for days

Published

on

Two police officers this evening shared their chips with a man they found on the motorway who hasn’t eaten food in days.

The caring cops showed compassion and humanity when they could have just nicked the lad and sent him off to the cells.

But instead of taking him straight into police custody they stopped off for some chips.

Showing a truly caring side of British traffic cops who often don’t get the best press.

“The cops from the Leicestershire road policing unit tweeted that they had found on motorway suspected to be an illegal immigrant into the UK.

“He’s not eaten for days and we’ve not eaten for hours, so we’ve all shared some fine English cuisine …… a bag of chips!! 👍🏻 🍟”

These truly caring officers have shown this evening that police officers have hearts and they do care about people.

Policing is not always about crime, it’s the small acts of human kindness that go a long way.

We praise these officers for their genuine out of kindness out of their own pocket.

Helen tweeted “I know you’ll probably get people complain but. Compassion, humanity and care are great qualities.”

UK Cop Humour tweeted “Fab stuff and whilst we’re on the topic of spuds: why do potatoes make good detectives? Because they keep their eyes peeled.”

ElAine tweeted “I know some people’s heads will explode at this but well done for your compassion.”

Simply policing at it’s best. What ever your views you have to admit this is compassion and humility at it’s best.

These cops truly deserve to be recognised for great policing work.

Not every job needs to be a tick box, just because it’s a suspected illegal immigrant doesn’t mean they should be treat any different.

Top job with excellent policing skills, that will have ensured this suspect didn’t cause any problems for the officers.

Full up on chips, the officers then processes this man through custody and will refer to the home office immigration services.
