Plodding Along

Police Farce

PC Stuart Grey aka PC Shiny Buttons recently gave  driver Michael Mancini a £60 fine and 3 points for …blowing his nose.

If he’d been driving at 70mph on a motorway you could understand it but he was stationary in a queue of traffic with the handbrake on.

And Grey has previous …a few months ago he gave a £50 on-the-spot fine for littering to an unemployed man who accidently dropped a £10 note as he came out of a shop – I’m sure, being unemployed, he could afford to chuck away a tenner.

But then this is what our Police Force has become … a Police Farce.  Solving crime doesn’t matter as long as they’re bringing in the cash. After all, it’s far easier to issue on-the -spot fines to law abiding citizens than deal with those nasty dangerous criminals they are meant to protect us from.

And if the police aren’t being used as revenue generators why is it always a financial penalty for such minor ‘crimes’? Why not Community Service?

    It was disgusting that such a thing could happen. The Policeman involved
    should be put behind a desk for 6 months.
