It is a situation that you have found yourself in, a situation that to others who have not experienced it, would be incomprehensible, the decision to either respond with anger, or with objectivity, with rage or with integrity, with hatred or with kindness.In recent decades the Armed Forces has been called upon to act as a peacekeeping force, more than a fighting force, due to this it no longer prides itself on only being able to fight a war, but it prides itself on being able to keep...

Five Royal Marines charged with murder.....

Written by RSS Poster Joe90 on the 16th October 2012 at 22:07 - Posted in Police Blogs

Five Royal Marines have been charged with murder, they will face these charges at a Court Martial. First of all you will say you fully support the investigation and charge of the five servicemen, especially as you believe that for the DSP to authorise a charge there must be reliable evidence, however you posted this on July the 6th 2012:'The Service Justice System and the Criminal Justice System both operate in the United Kingdom. They are similar, but certainly not identical.Where they are different,...

Peace in all time......

Written by RSS Poster Joe90 on the 29th September 2012 at 13:11 - Posted in Police Blogs

As you knelt down, your hands and uniform covered in blood, you looked at the man you were attempting to stop bleeding to death, he was surprisingly calm, but the crowd weren't, they were shouting at you, calling you a 'CUNT' and a 'BASTARD'. Your colleague was trying to hold them back, whilst calling for assistance on the radio, he turned around and you could see the look on his face. You've worked with this guy for many years, and you know that 'look', it meant people were coming as fast as they...

The kangaroo court?

The Service Justice System and the Criminal Justice System both operate in the United Kingdom. They are similar, but certainly not identical.Where they are different, they are different in a way that could be frightening....Odds: 10/2 - If you are a civilian being tried at crown court for murder, all you have to do is convince two out of twelve of your 'peers' that you are not guilty......Odds: 4/3 - If you are a member of the Armed Forces being tried at a court martial for murder, all you have to...

Independent and impartial.....

Written by RSS Poster Joe90 on the 19th March 2012 at 22:08 - Posted in Police Blogs

In recent years, there have been many incidents where police forces both civilian and especially the military police have been criticised for what appears to be a lack of independence from those who they are investigating.It was documented in the Stockwell Report that the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) and it's investigators were deliberately excluded from the start of the investigation into the fatal shooting of John Charles De Menezes in July 2005, which to some would be even more...

'The two men said to Lot, “Do you have anyone else here—sons-in-law, sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city who belongs to you? Get them out of here, because we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to the LORD against its people is so great that he has sent us to destroy it.' Genesis 19 V 12/13You have come to notice that, in every environment you have ever worked, the organisation itself only continues to function because those employed within it who will go above and beyond what...

What you have found, during your career in policing is that decisions that are made 'on the ground' in seconds, in difficult, stressful, fast moving and unforgiving situations, are decisions that are judged, with hindsight, be they by senior officers, junior officers or for that matter, any one, you have found that decisions are scrutinised, pulled apart, alternatives offered from pages of procedure and legeslitive articles. You cannot count on two hands the amount of times you have heard the following...

The value of life.......

Written by RSS Poster Joe90 on the 06th May 2011 at 15:57 - Posted in Police Blogs

Recently you discovered something about a particular 'faith' that shocked you, to the point of anger, to the point of total disbelief. Whilst you usually envy those who have a strong belief that something more must exist beyond this life on Earth, this time you didn't feel envy or jealousy for that sense of belief, you felt appalled, disheartened and extremely unnerved. The idea, or as you would like to call it, the misinterpretation, you were told brought out a side in you that you try to keep locked...

CREDIT: BRITISH ARMYL/Cpl Amy Thomas (above) dispels the myth that all Royal Military Police Officers are ugly......As you sat there, your rifle and the pistol on your hip became the centre of attention:'I hear you're a man of faith?''Where did you hear that?''People talk.''Clearly they do.''But if you're a man of faith, what do you think God would say about you carrying guns?'You are a quiet, unassuming man, and one thing you have never been completely comfortable with, is carrying a 'gun'.
