A spokesman for Tayside Police said: 'Trainee police dog Rebel has proved extremely popular with children and adults since being introduced to the public, aged six weeks old, as Tayside Police's newest canine recruit.Sadly, that's no longer true, because some people saw fit to complain about this:
'His incredible world-wide popularity - he has attracted record visitor numbers to our website - led us to believe Rebel could play a starring role in the promotion of our non-emergency number."
Tayside Police's new non-emergency phone number has prompted complaints from members of the Islamic community.Instead of telling them to lump it, Tayside Police showed all the backbone you'd expect from today's modern police
The choice of image on the Tayside Police cards - a black dog sitting in a police officer's hat - has now been raised with Chief Constable John Vine.
'We did not seek advice from the force's diversity adviser prior to publishing and distributing the postcards. That was an oversight and we apologise for any offence caused.'Yes, folks, in the UK today, police must consult the diversity adviser before issuing postcards with their new number in case it features a dog. Or anything else some aggrieved arseholes decide they don't like and are offended by.
Where did we go wrong...?
