Six Hampshire police officers accused of breaching standards

A bug was placed in the office of the Hampshire police's serious crime squad and six officers have been charged with breaching professional standards for comments that in a previous day might have been dismissed as "off colour".

What surprises me is that if one were to read the threads relating to policing on this site one would be led to believe that such comments went out with the dinosaurs and that UK police services are now thoroughly taken over by knee-taking, woke, rainbow-wearing, social justice warriors. It would appear not, the spirit of Gene Hunt lives on.

I do appreciate this is the CA thread and therefore of a more serious nature but seriously, read the comments and then try and work out what their ARRSE names are.

Opening the case against them, Jason Beer QC said: “It was a unit that was racist – a black officer is described as a ‘pavement special’, ie a mixed-breed dog. People are described as ‘pikeys’; a black officer is accused of behaving like a colonial overseer running a plantation of white people. When speaking to a black officer, a colleague puts on a fake Caribbean accent – in fact he was from Ghana. A detail like that doesn’t matter, he was a black man after all.

“A black officer is accused of being flown to England from Africa in a crate and taken to London zoo; all the time a song is sung in the background to the tune of Buffalo Soldier.”

Beer added that “offensive” photos of black men were shared on a WhatsApp group in reference to the only black officer in the unit.

Beer also said the unit displayed sexism: “Women were called or referred to as ‘whores’, ‘sluts’, ‘sweet tits’ or ‘sugar tits’, ‘Dorises’, ‘a ******* Doris’ … A suspect is called a ‘******* ****’. And the officers ponder amongst themselves if a person using the tannoy system is ‘getting any cock’.”

Beer said the covert recording device caught derogatory terms being used for disabled, gay and transgender people, and suggestions that Albanian nationals “should be shot or even killed with a nerve agent”.

It was also said that “illegal immigrants deserve the death penalty”, Beer told the hearing. “The officers joked about immigrants having a ‘long swim’ and drowning in the sea.

And they wonder why the local scum are free to carry out whatever low level crime they like with impunity.

Sooner I move out of this sh¡thole to get away from the scrotes, the better.

That's what happens if you take the criticism of the Guardian, or the sensationalist rubbish that the Daily Mail publishes at face value.

PCs bugging other PCs to uncover non PC language. Must make everyone on that particular Force feel really secure and trusted.

Having said that, what a bunch of cnuts those officers were, but more so their immediate bosses who must have known the guys involved and how they spoke, and seemed to have done nothing to curb it. Other than inserting covert bugging systems.
 
But it'll make a lovely excel spreadsheet you can take to the board and gain that next pip to pad out the old pension.
 
There's a time and place for non-PC conversations, and in work, wherever that is, isn't one of them. Neither is using electronic media of any sort. Even Mr non-PC me has accepted that.

The Police bugging the Police! It reminds me of Gen Melchett "Sending a spy to spy on their spy while they spy on our spy", where does it end?

Anyone sensible would not look at anything not woke on their work computer, let alone say anything remotely controversial
 
I wonder if ant pocs have Been targeted for covert monitoring.?
(police of colour)
Sorry only joking I don't really.
 
Maybe resources would uncover more crime bugging caravan club and stabbing association members.
But that's not allowed.
Because.

If there are standards and you breach them, then aren’t you going over and above the minimum requirement?

No?

My old CO never got that, either!
 
Sorry mam, we don't have any officers to send to your burgled home at the moment, we're far to busy purging the ranks of political undesirables.
 
Go into any large construction site's canteen at lunch break, and listen to the banter and piss taking. The conversations nearly always include comments on, the site agent, the site manager, some prat who has F***** up big time, the architects balls up with dimensions or colour scheme, and who TF thought that was a good idea? and many more derogatory comments, all far more salacious than anything plod can come up with, and when lunch break ends, its back to work, and normal jogging, all previous conversations are forgotten.

Indeed, but if I was the Plod's Plod, I would focus my attention on the most woke. It's reverse psychology, anyone who is ultra-woke is likely to be a neo-Nazi passing themselves off as the opposite.
 
I'm going to break cover here and suggest that it is racist, and some fairly unpleasant stuff. The cops are therefore bang to rights. I'd bet its likely that they said it and someone took offence and raised a complaint.

And the last sentence from the prosecutor, “Officers JOKED”.
Christ if I was the defence brief I’d jump on that remark, “Yes, joked”
They are in a stressful job having down time and joking around amongst themselves when no one is going to get hurt or offended, unless of course an underhand covert operation is put in place at great expense to the tax payer.

Saying all that someone in their office must have grassed them up, but my god if you can’t even “joke” about things then the world is a sad place.

It would be interesting to know if any of the said officers has any discipline history and complaints from members of the public that fall into this category. I bet you a pound to a piece of you know what that they haven’t.
 
Those officers were probably racist and ignorant enough to let the behaviour and traits of the people they dealt with on a daily basis over a period of time affect their opinions of some of those groups of people.
Disgusting. I for one am shocked.
