  3. it sad when these things happen and all we do is vent negatively, what can we learn from this situation, I hope the upper echelon of the police force use this incident as a learning experience, let the officer in question be judged by the law in its purest form, and let justice decide the course of action to be taken.

  7. Twenty two years service and you are still at the rank of constable? Your frustration is understood but the indiscipline is not tolerated. Looks like your career in the force is finished!
