Northamptonshire Police's Chief Constable Nick Adderley said: 'This was an appalling attack on two officers who had been called to deal with an extremely vulnerable young person.'
Yes, he's describing the assailant here. Not his officer who has been gravely injured by her...
In a statement on Twitter, the Conservative minister said: 'I struggle to comprehend how anyone could commit such an act.
'My thoughts are with these brave officers during this difficult time.'
Why do you 'struggle to comprehend' how a person with mental health issues can do things like this?
The 15-year-old girl, who has not been named, appeared before Northampton Magistrates' Court on Monday.
She was released on conditional bail to next appear at Wellingborough Youth Court on November 17, police said.
The public can't know the names and details of what is evidently someone who is floridly mentally ill and dangerous. And she's not been confined safely while she awaits trial.
THAT'S how such things happen. And they'll go on and on happening.
