Xes, Drugs And Evenin’ All – The Police Officers That Break The Law

Recommended Posts

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/sex-drugs-and-evenin-all--the-police-officers-that-break-the-law-9065376.html

Serving police officers have been found guilty of nearly 200 crimes in the past three years, with some actively using their positions for illegal gain.

Police forces across the country have arrested their own officers for a range of offences – including some as serious as running a brothel, possession of child pornography, and selling firearms – Freedom of Information requests by The Independent have revealed.

At least 179 crimes have been committed by officers in the past three years, a figure which the former deputy commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, Brian Paddick, described as “very worrying”.

The reports show that officers are guilty of serious crimes including sexual assault, possession of cocaine, using excessive force and lying on a crime report form relating to a rape case.

The reports also show that dozens of officers are caught speeding and drink-driving every year – with many escaping with little more than a written warning.

Is the police service more corrupt than is used to be or is the situation as it's always been.

Who cares?

Sometimes I need to use them, but it's for their statutory powers rather than any moral high ground they may hold.

I have no downer on the police, I see them as a service I can call on at need

My guess is it's worse. No moral compass any more.

It`s a fine line between the police and criminals. They are both gangs on opposing sides. I do tend to place more trust in the system the police use however.

1000 police officers

1000 lorry drivers

1000 factory workers

1000 judges

and so on,

probably a similar amount of dodgy ones in every 1000..

My guess is probably better, we're just catching more of them.

This is most likely the case. With modern technology it's a lot easier to identify dodgy officers. 30 years ago would have been a different story.
