Matthew Doyle, 46 (30.12.69) of South Croydon was charged by police on Friday, 25 March, with an offence under Section 19 of the Public Order Act 1986.
Following discussion with the Crown Prosecution Service, Mr Doyle is no longer charged with the offence and will not be appearing at court.What? Your achingly politically correct collar is all going horribly wrong for you? Gosh! How to express my feeling on this?
So, is this down to the furore over the case? Has someone a little further up the food chain decided to try to pull your irons out of the fire?
Police may not make charging decisions on offences under Section 19 of the Public Order Act.Wha..?
Wait. Let me just process this.....you were so eager to railroad this poor sod you forgot you didn't have the authority to do so!?
There will be further consultation with CPS.I hope they're going to be around how you can fire the cretin who authorised this arrest and the 'just obeying orders' drones who carried it out like automatons.
They've done you more damage than the last lot of bungling cretins in uniform managed, and I never thought that would ever happen...
