Girl cop's a right cracker!
What many people don't realise is that Police Officers are actually human. The boys and girls in blue are not robots programmed to respond to certain situations and a set of rules do not always apply to every situation an Officer will face.
A domestic incident is never as simple as people might imagine, there are many variables that will effect what outcome an Officer decides is best. This may be to arrest an offender or to transport one of the warring parties to a relative's house, but in every domestic a force policy must be applied. What management don't seem to realise is that force policy can not always be applied; policy can sometimes make a situation worse than it already is, as you know very well. It may work from behind a desk, it may sound good in an air conditioned office in Police HQ, but out on the streets, where an outcome can be changed in a split second, it may not work.
Take for example the new Powers of Arrest that came into force on the 1st of January 2006. These were manufactured by people who, quite likely, have never been Police Officers and have never set foot in a patrol car let alone dealt with an 'effective' arrest. They sit behind their well polished desks and say to themselves:
How can I fess up the work of a Cop and make it far more complicated? I know, I'll change the bread and butter of Policing on News Years Eve that sounds good to me.'
You have one thing to say to this, the only people who should have the right to change how the police do their job are people who have served as Police Officers, or have at least experienced what Officers experience. Why? Because then the Police Officers themselves will at least have some peace of mind that what they are doing is coming from a sense of experience and from the point of view of a person who has dealt with what they have, dealt with what they are going to do.
On a lighter note, you found this whilst browsing the World Wide Web:
This link has in it, the photo shown above, it is what you describe as divine, unbridled. Put it like this, you wouldn't mind watching her back, going State 4 would be a pleasure to be savored, for all eternity. The link also shows that Police Officers do have a personal life, they do have a life that should remain just that, private.
After all, Police Officers are human just like any one else, right?
