R.I.P Mate

Posted in The Job - General by 200

Spare a moment or two to to think about the wife and daughter of PC Jon Henry, murdered on duty yesterday 11th June in Luton, Bedfordshire. 

Jon joins the list of British officers killed in the line of duty.

Before it was known that Jon had died an early news release on the BBC website quoted a ‘police spokesman’ as saying that it wasn’t known whether the officer was wearing a stab-proof vest at the time but that ‘all officers are issued with stab-proof vests, but it is their choice whether to wear it’.

I suspect I am not the only one who was absolutely appalled at that comment; before it was publicly announced that he had died, Bedfordshire Police appeared to be absolving itself of any responsibility. If that’s not an example of crass insensitivity, I don’t know what is.

    Indeed, I am shocked at the insensitivity that has been shown to this poor officers family and friends.

    For example, in the Daily Mail, his picture is on the front page, but the details of this horrific killing is not even as important as a celebrity wearing a swimsuit that is featured on page 3. Instead, the details of this tragic murder of a father and husband, plus two other people seriously injured, is relegated to page 8-9, framed with an advert, an ill-informed discussion on police body armour, and a piece on how “Questions must me answered!”- not about this horrific killing, but about armed police shooting a woman who was threatening to kill them with a pistol.

    A man died. His life was taken while he was serving the public, leaving a wife a widow, and a little girl without a father.
    Is there no respect left.

    Great news as another Nazi pig gets put down. What a wonderful week it is now. shame the guy did not stick a few more Nazi pigs before they got him.

    Someone should dig up the dirty pig cut off the baldheaded Nazi cunts head and stick it on a lamp post in luton town center, as a warning of what all pig scum should get for being a traitor to the man on the street.

    and may may more of the scum follow this scum to an early grave in the most painful way possible.

    every dead pig is a victory for the people.

    I was going to put something about how I’m not shocked by the bosses at Beds covering their arses (it probably comes as naturally as breathing to them) and then I saw the comment by f*ck all pigs.

    Splendid. It’s nice to see what we’re risking ourselves for. Some halfwit who can barely string a sentence together. And such well developed vocabulary. Gosh, their mum must be terribly proud!

    Let me guess, you’re one of the oppressed masses who lives in a Police State where nobody has any freedom any more? Thought so. And, making a terrible generalisation here, I’m going to guess that you don’t currently have a job (“because it’s a bourgeous idealist capitalist scum thing to do”) and it’s much easier to scounge off benefits (which, as a fellow Nazi Pig Scum I pay) than drag yourself into work and pay tax.

    I’m willing to bet that at some point you’ve been “assaulted” by the “Pigs” and you were doing nothing wrong? Yep, thought so. Because we always beat people up for no reason. (Although, if we’re honest, you were kind of breaking the law at the time weren’t you? And, looking back, perhaps you weren’t quite doing as the officers asked?)

    Seriously, bit of advice to take or leave as you see fit. If you have a genuine grievance or point you wish to put across then buy (or steal, whatever) a thesaurus and develop a slightly more mature way of putting that point across. Because, at the moment, it’s getting overlooked as you’re coming across as something of an arse!

    200 – sorry for dragging out the comment.

    How refreshing to see you have polluted all blogs that carry a tribute to PC Jonathan Henry & have so very imaginatively copied & pasted your way through the comments section of these blogs. Can’t spell, poor grammar, lack of punctuation, respect & general human decency & so imaginative that one poorly worded comment has been pasted all over the police blogs.

    It really must have taken you a while to type that out what with the blisters that plague your knuckles….
    Best go get mummy to warm your milk now & put you to bed, I’m sure it’s well past your bedtime.

    To ‘Fuck all Pigs’ I’m sorry but to think the way you do, to be so bitter and twisted, to think that way of another person, to be so full of self loathing and hatred you must have done something awful in your life … kiddyfiddler perhaps?

    To **** all ****

    An officer has died in the line of duty leaving a widow and baby to cope with the loss. Innocent lives have been shattered. If you had any humanity and compassion you would show some dignity and stop posting these sick comments. Your mind has obviously become corrupted.

    ‘fuck all pigs’ it’s really interesting that you should choose a nickname which describes your lifestyle. You should take a trip up the road from the A14 to Thetford, there is a field full of pigs which would keep you happily engaged for days.

    Now, in the words of my dear Grandma, god rest her soul “fuck off you waste of oxygen”.
