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.
