Humpty McNumpty

Posted in The Job - Comment by 200

The Independant Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) have released a report claiming some police officers take unnecessary risks during police pursuits.

There’s a serious debate to be had about when or whether police should pursue a fleeing vehicle but that’s for another day. Meanwhile, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take the piss out of the Police Minister, or should that be clown, Tony McNumpty. (Mind you, I probably wouldn’t have to wait long for another chance)

Apparently, and this is a genuine quote, he has welcomed the ACPO review of police pursuit policy but said that "the key issue is that the majority of police chases were caused by suspects refusing to stop when requested."!

I can exclusively reveal some other recent government research;

  • Studies show that the majority of shoplifting offences were caused by people failing to pay for their goods.
  • The majority of drunken behaviour is caused by people consuming alcohol and,
  • The majority of government-spouted bollocks is caused by ministers failing to keep their mouths shut.

And the results of my studies cost the government precisely fuck-all.
