That Doh! Moment

Posted in The Job - General by 200

Eighteen-year-old thug, Jack Wilson, will be wondering just how wise it was to post his thoughts on Facebook when he got home from court.

He appeared at Newcastle Crown Court last month where he admitted beating up 43 & 50-year-old men.

As they all do, his brief expressed to the court his shame &  remorse. Doubtless there was, as there always is, reassurances that he had turned his life around that he had learned important lessons.

The case was adjourned for sentencing.

When Wilson got home from court he posted on Facebook: “No remorse, no surrender, 100 per cent re-offender

Judge Roger Thorn was shown the Facebook post at this week’s sentencing. He said: “If anyone ever asked to go to prison, this is the best way to do it. All claims of remorse evaporate as hypocrisy.

had there been remorse, it might have been possible to suspend the sentence. Twenty months.”

    THE CONSUMATE d..khead was sent down. What a lovely warm feeling that gives me. Part 2 of this sorry story would be how long the defence lawyer copped for perjury.

    It’s a good job stupidity isn’t painful. A shame it appears to be hereditary, though.

    We had a talk from our complaints dept a couple of weeks ago and one of the topics was facebook.The DS asked the room who had it and who hadn’t.It was definately a generational divide.Me being an old git wouldn’t touch it but all the youngsters with gelled hair and tatoos all use it often.When the DS went through the problems and pitfalls I had a litle chuckle to myself as the youngsters started to look a bit uncomfortable.The DS told us that defence solicitors as a matter of course trawl facebook before big trials to see if police are communicating about it so they can be cross-examined in the witness box.We were also shown the posts of officers taking pictures of polaccs and boasting,as well as pictures of them in full uniform.It’s not just criminals is the point i’m trying to make,just say NO.

    So often we take our freedoms for granted.

    We forget those who put their lives on the line every day to ensure our safety and freedom.

    Police officers do more than enforce the law; they serve and protect. Every day, officers go to work not knowing the challenges they will face, but they do know the danger every challenge will bring.

    Rather than think of danger, officers think of courage. They selflessly work to make this country a safer and freer society.

    Police officers sometimes have to make difficult choices. They have to protect those who want to do harm. They do it because they believe in the law. Justice has to be enforced, and they have answered the call of duty.

    Police officers dedicate their lives to preserving justice and safety for us all in this country.

    They continue to protect us from danger and risk their own lives in the process. We should pay tribute to police officers for the sacrifices that they make in the name of freedom.

    “They are our soldiers of humanity. When the devil roars, they shield us from evil”.

    Wishing you all a safe, peaceful and enjoyable Christmas.

    To each and every one of you, thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Have a great Christmas 200!
