WPC gets £575k damages

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. It's disgusting, the stupid whoopsy plod should be ashamed of herself.
  2. Yes. It's completely unacceptable to make a member of what should be a close-knit team feel unwelcome & a lesser member of that team.

    Any comment on the Dibbles leaving their weapons lying around?
  3. Can I claim for retrospective damages for all the porn I was forced to watch in the squadron bar in the 80's.
  4. The Plod who treated her like this were fcuktards of the highest order. Leaving aside the moral considerations, how many times do Plod have to pay out before the rank and file get it through their thick heads that behaving like Gene Hunt on steriods has consquences.

    Having said that, I have very little sympathy for the WPC. If she cannot handle the stress of an unpleasant working enviroment, one has to question her ability to deal with situations where lethal force is necessary.

    Just about covers our view and as local taxpayers for that force I'm beginning to wonder when the axe will fall. Not where though, the local services will suffer whilst the cowboys will be cushioned.
    What I cant explain to the Mrs is how much of that compo will be lost earnings and how much she will pay in tax?
  6. Why does The Plod let wimmin join? To get compensation!
  7. Not if they were your tapes...


  8. Bugger, worth a go. Mind you some were really bad and not bad in a good way.

    How did she survive for so long :?
  11. Any pics of Ms Plod?
    Is she a looker or like the back of a number 93 bus?
  12. number 93...
  13. Regardless of the rights or wrongs, with this apparent vulnerability to banter/stress, she was clearly not a fit person to be assigned to firearms duty ( - and how ironic that now that senior plod like Blair are proclaiming that GPs ought to be able to spot whether a civvie FAC holder is off their trolly, etc....).

    One would have thought that even an average line manager would have been able to spot signs of susceptibility to bullying, or the basic difference between bullying and banter.
