I think it’s unfortunate that members of the public who wish to show their appreciation of police officers are not allowed to make small gifts such as bacon rolls.
It comes from a lack of ability to apply common sense when deciding if something is corrupt or criminal.
I saw that a police officer, quite a senior one has been reinstated after being sacked because she was convicted of having indecent images of a minor on her phone.
It turns out that these where images she had been sent and had not viewed and was unaware of. It really begs the question of why she was prosecuted and why she was convicted. It would appear to be a complete failure of the justice system to apply common sense.
As for politicians and gifts their TACOS are different. If you don’t like what they do vote for someone else or stand against them.
"It turns out that these where images she had been sent and had not viewed and was unaware of".
And you actually belive that?
