Recently, a security guard was sent down for 3 months for allowing a dog to melt to death in his van.
Today, the trial begins of a copper accused of killing two police dogs in the same negligent way.
He’s previously pleaded not guilty, but I’m damned if I know on what grounds. The dogs were in his charge. They apparently died due to his negligence.
So we’re looking for a guilty verdict and some clink-time.
Equality and justice for all.
Oh wait.. I forgot about operation ‘not my fault’.
"There is little doubt that Pc Johnson suffered from depression and OCD. These conditions can lead to forgetfulness.”
Hmmm… mitigation my arse. I bet you’ll find no other court case where “forgetfulness due to something that can be treated with 20-60mg of Seroxat a day” was accepted ass mitigation.
UPDATE from Graun:
A police dog handler accused of leaving his two German shepherds to die in his baking hot car thought the Independent Police Complaints Commission was "out to get him", a court heard today.
ORLY? Sounds more like it’s the RSPCA who are out to get him actually, but hey ho – thanks Labour’s Animal Welfare Act.
