The Biter Bit?

Inspector Andy Carter said: “It was a report about two drunken women being disruptive at the address.
“When the officers got there, a dog was clearly aggressive.
“It was a large, aggressive dog, but it wasn't an illegal breed.
“It’s not unusual for an officer to come across an aggressive dog, but suffering injuries to this extent is quite uncommon.”
Gosh, it'll be terrible if this turns out to have been a well-known nuisance dog in the neighbourhood with a reputation for savagery that the police have shrugged off in the past, won't it?

Meanwhile, London traffic came to a standstill as emergency services rushed another policewoman to the High Court after she suffered pollical damage.

A spokesperson for Gread, Travis and Sty, appealed for calm and confirmed that the case was 'making good progress'. However, no amount of money could compensate for the psychological damage resulting from thumbnail chips caused by hard keyboard plastic.

Once again you have linked two stories from opposite ends of the country.Are you saying the PC in Burnley deserved to get bitten because of something that happened in Croydon? Nonsense!

Melvin! So you ARE a Daily Mail reader - - complete with schizophrenic faux outrage!

Compensation culture has mushroomed with the excessive zeal that health & safety policies, processes and procedures have been enthusiastically adopted in a 'chicken & egg' scenario.

Some of the police related stories do seem petty but at the same time I cannot understand the mentality that says police officers should expect to be injured without any kind of protection / recompense in a climate where their support has been deliberately eroded by their directed performance over the last 15 − 20 years. Directed by government, supported by Acpo, and the target culture. Plus their pay, pensions and conditions of service are changing to reduce their status to that of a normal 'worker' - despite society still expecting them to risk their health and lives at times and in situations everyone else calls the police to.

Remember - -it is only going to get worse but there are still thousands of mainly young police officers who are out there dealing with absolutely horrendous, distressing, increasingly violent and frustrating situations in such a climate and within a criminal justice system which isn't fit for purpose and run by the liberal elite.

All the proposed Winsor changes relating to recruitment will lead to further problems. You can have all the direct entry chief inspector / superintendent cyber crime experts of minority ethnic origins you like; stuff the higher ranks with graduates, Masters & Phds in criminology, international terrorism etc etc but who is going out to deal with the chav scum in the middle of the night, or stand in line getting rocks and scaffold poles thrown at them when da commoonitee get angry one hot summer night?

The public really is getting the police force/service that our betters think we deserve. No doubt you are happy Melvin - well that is something, but please don't forget to take your meds.

By any police definition of mental stability I'm fairly sound of mind, WC Jaded. Compelling evidence is found in my belief that the Operation Newgreen report is completely true. An honest account, demonstrating to an undeserving public the truly transparent nature of police reviews, is absolute testimony to their continuing commitment to protect citizens.

And for what it's worth, I also believe every word contained in Operation Oldgreen, old girl. Lol XX

Not at all! What I'm suggesting is that policies (like those of blowing off dog attacks) have consequences.

"Some of the police related stories do seem petty but at the same time I cannot understand the mentality that says police officers should expect to be injured without any kind of protection / recompense in a climate..."

None of these recent headline-hitting claims are reasonable. They devalue the force even further.

Ranter's limited faculties may just grasp this concept but the bigger bigot within him would deny it, Julia.
