Latest Inductees

Posted in The Job - General by 200

I’ve been adding inductees to the 200Weeks ‘Scum of the Week Hall of Fame’ for some time now.  I never cease to be amazed, even after 32 years in the job, how low some people can sink in their efforts for some kind of self-satisfaction or greed.

I like to reserve particular disgust for people who think it’s a good idea to desecrate graves & memorials.

This week’s latest members into the hall of Fame are two un-named men from the Leeds area who have been arrested & bailed for an offence involving the memorial to a police officer who was murdered on duty in 1984.

Sgt John Speed was shot & killed whilst going to the aid of an officer who had been injured during a stop-check on two males acting suspiciously. His memorial stone stands on the spot where he was killed in Kirkgate in Leeds. It was recently sprayed with paint in what appears to be a swastika. A local police spokesman thought it wasn’t targeted at the memory of the officer as similar grafitti has been found elsewhere in the area.
