Unfit To Be Any Sort Of Of Police Officer, Let Alone a Chief Constable

with 2 comments

This idiot, Chief Constable Nick Adderley, issued an implied threat that his officers would start setting up roadblocks and searching supermarket trollies to see whether items purchased were necessary.

It’s clear he doesn’t understand the new legislation. In fact his suggestions are so far beyond his powers as to be ridiculous.  In the present difficult circumstances, even for a senior officer who should know better, we should allow some leeway. We should forgive some exaggeration or overstatement.  But Adderley has gone far beyond this.  He’s clearly unfit to be a police officer at any sort of rank with his ignorance and authoritarian instincts wildly out of control.

He should be sacked from his position immediately. There is no room in British policing for someone who behaves like this, whatever the circumstances.

  1. We have the misfortune to have this clown in charge of our police. He is the worst type who thinks of himself as a CEO of a large company and has no idea about running a police force, sorry managing a police service. It seems that the only people that we ever see on the streets of Wellingborough are PCSO. A sign of his financial management – cheaper than Bobbies! The PCSOs are well trained at handing out Crime Numbers when they are sent to visit a crime scene. The sooner this inadequate takes early retirement the better but I’d put money on promoting him sideways to some backwater where inadequacy excels.

  2. Unfortunately this is typical of the “being seen to be doing something” policing we see today, he is taking it to new levels of stupidity, would these unnecessary items have been confiscated and would the incident be put on record as a none crime.
