Chief constable embarrassed after son waves offensive placard at police training event

A chief constable's son has embarrassed his father by displaying offensive placards at a police training event.
Officers removed Jack McPherson, 17, from the riot training exercise after he held up banners including one that proclaimed, 'All policewomen are dykes'.
Norfolk Chief Constable Ian McPherson was forced to cut short a meeting after he was contacted about the situation and asked to intervene.
Mr McPherson, who is the Association of Chief Police Officers' spokesman on children, is then understood to have ordered his son to issue an apology.
A police source said: 'The banner was a real show-stopper. Members of the public who take part in these events are meant to make them trying for officers but the sign - and the person who wrote it - took everyone into completely new territory.
'The constabulary has tried to play this down but it has caused a lot of anger among the rank and file and has been an embarrassment for the chief.
'Some of the remarks were particularly offensive.'
It was not clear how the teenager came to be at the event.

A police source said a 17-year-old had been involved in displaying an inappropriate banner at a training day at RAF Coltishall near Norwich, but he had apologised and no further action would be taken.

So; if you're a rioter and want to know how to stop any Police action, you know what banner to write.

"Train easy, run away crying"

Who knew, the banner is mightier than the petrol bomb.

So, if I understand correctly, the guys son was part of the mob being used to train the police? And he had a sign "All police women are dykes" to wind them up. The training was then stopped because it came as a "shock" the coppers..........who were training to stop riots..........riots that would probably involve a bit more than harsh words.
1. Fair play to the lad, he was there to act like a member of an unruly mob and he succeeded.
2. If the police subsequently come across a riot that involves anything more than "Ooooh, you're a nasty man!" and the occasional angry glare then I think they may struggle :roll:

Is this correct..??..I thought these were what 'little Dutch boys' put their finger into..??..is not the current teminology 'dikes'..??..perhaps Jarrod can enlighten us..??..anyway if he were my son I'd get my officers to give him a good 'shoeing' so the little 'cnut' woud start to 'man up' and realise what the 'big bad world' was about

My bold. I think you may be missing the point, have another read of the story, I don't think it's the lad who needs to "man up"

Were the placards written in CAPITAL LETTERS too? Shocker!
Wouldn't be if written by 'anti-capitalists'.

So to get the Police to run away during a riot all you have to do is question their sexuality. I bet the Poll tax rioters wish they had, had that little nugget of information.

For fcuks sake when are people stop being fcuking offended every time something like this happens somebody shouts at someone on a train, Oooh I'm hurt and offended, bloody woman has hurt feelings because she is a rug muncher, bloody police can't ignore a fcuking placard.

AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH

I remember providing civpop for PSNI a few years ago. The baseline was mostly big blokes, but included 1 x token female (small). When we focussed out attention on the weak link we were told not to, as it was unfair!

Ditto.

Equally, I also saw the civpop turn their attentions on the one token Fijian in that particular team. After a series of taunts of "F**ing N***er" the scrote in question decided to push to the front. Shield and piping down, I don't know how many teeth he lost on the first punch but it took 6 DS to pull the Fijian off. Maybe not as disciplined as it could be, still funny as fcuk.

And rightly so, she would probably have knocked seven shades out of the lot of you :D
