Me First

Posted in The Job - General by 200

The below is a section of the Police Act 1996:

91 Causing disaffection

(1) Any person who causes, or attempts to cause, or does any act calculated to cause, disaffection amongst the members of any police force, or induces or attempts to induce, or does any act calculated to induce, any member of a police force to withhold his services, shall be guilty of an offence and liable—

(a) on summary conviction, to imprisonment for a term not exceeding six months or to a fine not exceeding the statutory maximum, or to both;
(b) on conviction on indictment, to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years or to a fine, or to both

Now, can anybody think of any recent events or people who might fall into the definition of having breached this law at all? "Any person….any act calculated to cause disaffection…" Anyone fancy another tick in the arrest box and a detection for the stats by nicking the Home Secretary?

Oooh, me first!

    I was expecting something from the Town Police Clauses Act or something similar.
