I agree with whats said above, but that link is to an article 9 years ago, and the incident was the year before that. And the idiot officer was exposed due to concerns by his colleagues which lead to the sting operation and him being caught nicking cash.. so I'm standing by my comment about the S.Wales police
I'd agree normally Seren but these interactions with the public actually happen, time and again the officers being filmed are arrogant and confrontational, demonstating poor communication skills and a complete lack of insight into how their behaviour will be perceived.
In the jungle scenario it matters not a jot if the stuff that makes it to the screen is skewed for entertainment value. On a documentary about the police, what is show is that those officers think thats how they should be behaving, not in moments of pure stress when faced with a knife weilding thug but when pulling over everyday motorists or stopping young men in the street because they 'think' they are acting suspiciously.
You just have to look at some of those police TV progs, the ones with real police, to see the poor quality of police officers. they are mind bogglingly unprofessional in so many ways from their language, infantile jokes, swaggering big man attitudes and the women aren't any better. And whats worrying are these the ones whose senior officers have obviously thought would do a good job of representing the force, makes you wonder about the ones they wouldn't let near the cameras.
What my colleague told you was in utter utter confidence and as a senior manager you should have kept that to yourself. But instead you blabbed to other members of your team, because you just cant resist a good gossip. I hope when she realises you have betrayed her she first punches your face in and then takes out a grievance against you, as if her life isn't hard enough right now you have made it even more difficult for her to cope with. I'm spitting.
