There have been those recently on Twatter who have challenged me, questioning my attitudes towards corruption and wrongdoing, particularly within the Police Service.
Those of you who have read my blogs recently should be familiar with my opinion. Those of you who know me personally, in the real world, know exactly what my views are. If you don’t know me but would like to get know my views over a sociable cup of coffee (latte please, no sugar) I’m here, not hiding, come and talk to me. I do not hide behind an anonymous Twatter account like some of my critics do, so come and talk to me.
If you don’t like what I write, don’t read it, simples.
If you don’t like the tone of my Tweets, Unfollow, Block or Mute me, simples.
I have had far more experience of corruption and wrongdoing than the majority of my critics and I make no apology whatsoever for the fact that I see no reason at all why Police Officers should be subject to a lower level of proof than the General Public. Why on earth should there be a two tier system?
Look at my bio, I was a Forensic Auditor after I left the Met. Look and see what a Forensic Auditor’s job involves (not to be confused with Forensic Accountant, a totally different job and they earn shed loads of money). “An examination and evaluation of a firm’s or individual’s financial information for use as evidence in court. A forensic audit can be conducted in order to prosecute a party for fraud, embezzlement or other financial claims. In addition, an audit may be conducted to determine negligence” or corruption or wrongdoing/malpractice.
There’s also the thorny subject of EVIDENCE. If Evidence exists people tend to get charged or summonsed or disciplined. If insufficient evidence exists then it doesn’t reach the Threshold Standard and stops there, just the same as it would for you or your favourite aunt. But if the evidence is there then I fully support pursuing the offender and subjecting them to the appropriate process of the law, there should be NO favouritism pro or anti Police.
I do hope that’s cleared things up a little. If it hasn’t, BLOCK OR BE BLOCKED, your choice, rant over.
