A public hanging? Well, he’s been tried in public, so his lawyers (paid by us) will argue he cannot get a fair discipline hearing. He’ll probably be sacked as he is an embarrassment and there is much to cover-up. We should be financing a civil action to see his pension sequestered to his victim’s family and clear statements to other thug officers made. A judicial review should be carried out into the lamentable failure of our legal system to protect citizens from violent and incompetent public sector workers. Pigs might fly, though this might only make rogue officers more dangerous.
Channel 4 should do a mock trial of a civilian doing the same thing.
The trouble in all this is we need cops and social workers to kick in more of the right doors, not less. The real problem is not Harwood, but the vile and smug overpaid who can’t look at evidence dispassionately, but pretend objectivity through spin. I’d take my chances with Harwood rather than Starmer or Hardwick and their ilk.
