Policeman ordered to undergo further training after swearing at abusive criminal .

It isn’t that there weren’t any criminals when I was young and growing up. Of course there were.
But way back then in the dark ages, you just didn’t (most didn’t) get abusive with a cop unless you wanted to risk losing your two front teeth. Accidentally of course.

There were boundaries that just were not crossed without great risk.
Enter left wing wimpy,drippy, hand wringing, heart wringing left wing liberals fronting civil rights groups and the result is this crap. 

A police sergeant has been ordered to undertake a “management advice course” because he swore while dealing with a violent and abusive criminal who had threatened officers during a two-hour siege.

He may also face legal action from serial offender Glen Francis whose complaint was upheld by a disciplinary hearing.

Francis, 35, flew into a rage when officers called to arrest his girlfriend at his home, hurling a bowl of pasta at a policewoman guarding the hallway.

He was claimed to have held her captive and threatened to shoot her before she escaped from the house in North Shields, Tyne and Wear.

When police back-up arrived, he was said to have lunged at them with a six inch knife before he was shot twice with a Taser gun.

Even then he pulled metal barbs from his skin before barricading himself inside the kitchen where he smashed the walls with a hammer and shouted: “The first copper in here is getting ------- killed, come on, I only want one of you.”

Trained negotiators were called in and he was eventually taken into custody after officers stormed the room and Tasered him a further three times.

He complained that after he had been stripped searched, the sergeant referred to him as a ----.

An investigation by Northumbria Police Professional Standards Department (PSD) found the sergeant guilty of misconduct for using the swear word.

A PSD report states that the sergeant was pushed into making an “inappropriate comment” following a tirade of abuse from Francis.

It said: “The police officer openly admits he made the inappropriate comment about Mr Francis after the strip search had been conducted.

“He admits this was unprofessional, although it was never his intention for Mr Francis to hear this comment. He stipulates this comment was a result of the violence and abuse from Mr Francis.”

The sergeant, who has not been named has been ordered to undergo to attend a “management advice course”.

Francis’s complaints of being stripped and handcuffed on a cell floor were dismissed.

He says he is discussing legal action with his solicitor and plans to lodge a complaint with the European Court of Human Rights.

Francis, now of Wallsend, North Tyneside, said: “I want to take legal action because they just get a telling off for what they did.

“It was an insult when I heard how the officer who swore at me got off - it upset me to hear someone say that. I’ve got a hole in my heart and they used a Taser, which could have killed me.”


(what a shame it didn’t kill this asswipe. and the slower the better . this is what the criminal justice system has come to.)

After the incident in February 2008, he was charged with offences of false imprisonment, threats to kill and affray.

He was convicted of affray at Newcastle Crown Court in September and given a 12-month suspended prison sentence.

Francis, who underwent an operation in January to repair a heart defect from birth, said: “I was a toe-rag when I was younger, but I’m trying to go straight. I’m really scared of the police now - I’m like a bag of nerves.”

A Northumbria Police spokesman said if any civil claim was made it would be considered “in the usual manner”.

Simon Reed, Vice-Chairman of the Police Federation of England and Wales, said: “This case just typifies the bureaucratic nonsense police officers often have to contend with.

“As for the convicted criminal’s human rights, did he consider the same rights of the officers he threatened during the incident?

“It’s high time the criminal justice system in this country was properly reviewed so that it protects those who abide by the law and does not pander to those who do not.”

Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
