Just shut up

Posted in The Job - Comment by 200

Got a Facebook Account? If so and you’re in the job be careful what you post because the Rubber Heel Squad are hot on your tail.

19 police officers & staff from Northamptonshire are now under investigation for making posts on Facebook in support of a colleague who was facing disciplinary action. Such comments as "Keep smiling mate, you’re a good hard working copper", and "Chin up, you’re an inspiration to us all, everyone’s rooting for you", are apparently sufficient to have you invited into the office for coffee and a chat without the coffee.

This’ll be another of those restrictions on your private life which you get compensated for by means of having a pay negotiating body to deal with your annual pay rise because you have no other bargaining power, wait a minute….

    As I understood the report in the papers, that particular policeman who is facing disciplinary action, actively encouraged other officers to attack and harm the people they had arrested, no matter what the arrest was for.
    Now this is obviously not what the public or any government expect or want from the police.
    All those that were encouraging him by writing comments like:
    “chin up, you’re an inspiration to us all.” Surely they too, are wrong.

    Making that kind of comment on any blog site must surely be stopped.
