Cop issues appeal for help spending 30p compensation after being assaulted on duty

A Police Officer has issued an appeal for your help after receiving 30p compensation, The officer was assaulted on Duty 5 years ago and received 30p.

Compare that to Jermery Corbyn having an egg thrown at him just a couple of days ago and being jailed for 28 days.

Both incidents very seriously, and both victims deserve justice, Corbyn was left with redness details of the officer who received 30p are not known nor is the seriousness of the assault.

But what we do know that it takes a lot of an assault charge to stand against a police officer, and then for someone to be convicted seems to take a lot more effort from the justice system.

What we do know is a police officer should never be assaulted in the line of duty, despite the officer making a joke of the 30p it’s a much more serious situation that they’ve made light of to highlight the seriousness of police officers being assaulted on duty.

Twitter reacted to the news that the officer received only 30p.

Janet Brien Tweeted that the officer should send it back without a stamp and make them pay for it.

Scott Campbell joked that it couldn’t buy a single cake with that.

Meanwhile Amanda Tweeted that it was just insulting

With Jules Tweeting her recommendation of immediate retirement.

All Jokes aside, Processing a claim of 30p compensation is truly shocking, We are sure the judge handed down much more at sentencing rather than just a 30p fine but the system itself can only process the exact same payments made to it.

So there could, in fact, be more 30 pence’s to follow. You best get planning that retirement
