“The owner was standing right next to us and he didn’t do anything and when I asked him to put the dog on a lead or a mussel (sic) he just started laughing,” he said.A fairly typical reaction.
The police were called to the park and Mr Turner was given first aid and taken to the Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead.And they arrested the owner, yes?
Oh, silly me.
A police spokesman said: “On Sunday at around 8.15am it was reported a man was bitten after trying to separate two dogs fighting in Greatness Park, Sevenoaks.
“It is alleged an alteration (sic) then took place involving one of the dog owners and another man. Police attended the scene and carried out enquiries.
“No injuries were reported as a result of the altercation and no arrests have been made.”Now, it doesn't take a genius to spot the obvious flaw in this statement, does it?
Lazy policing is sadly to be expected. This is a different sort of policing. What should we call it?
