Police - you lost, show some dignity
The tendency of the police to make almost slanderous statements after being hammered in court really boils my bladder. The latest was this race-fixing malarkey. The judge threw the whole case out as being non-existent, then you have some CID type telling the Beeb that they had a compelling case and it was a shame the jury didnt get to see all the evidence.
Well I think that's crap. They had their day in court, such as it was, and the small horsey people are now innocent under the law. These statements amount to "well, he's got away with it, hasn't he", which is an unjustified slur on their character. This was just the latest example, I'm sure I've seen it before.
Anyway, I find the concept of fiddling horse racing hilarious. Is this different from the "horse racing" where they go up to the horse they think is fastest and hang weights on it to slow it down? They should give that Paula Radcliffe a rucksack full of King Edwards to even it up a bit. Or make Phil "Not Bad For A Port Vale Fan" Taylor throw with his other hand.
