A policeman sustained a broken arm and another had his jaw fractured, when they were assaulted in York city centre.
Both officers were taken to York Hospital after the attacks, which occurred in separate incidents.Disgraceful, and I hope they don’t simply get their assaults dismissed by the CPS as is so often the case.
North Yorkshire Police Federation (NYPF), which represents rank and file officers, said such attacks were rare but said Government funding cuts could make them more common…Whoa, there! Oh, no you don’t!
If the police top brass are cutting the front line officers, rather than the back room desk jockeys and useless PR ‘spokesmen’, that’s not the faulty of The Dreaded Tory Cuts, no matter how much you might try to spin it that way…
… although force bosses said officer levels were adequate over the Bank Holiday weekend.The same ‘force bosses’ that said the Notting Hill Carnival was a success?
Bah! A plague on both their houses.
