Boo Hoo Greetin' Faced Police Scotland

The Scottish Police Federation (SPF) who represent rank and file police officers are currently involved in a very public spat with the Police Investigations and Review Commissioner (PIRC) who investigate wrong doing in the force.

The childish SPF have thrown their toys out of the pram and are moaning to anyone who'll listen to them that during investigations the PIRC are interviewing police officers, telling them they are just witnesses, but treating them like suspects.

Many police officers are bleating on about how unfair it is that while giving witness statements to the PIRC they feel they are being sneakily eyed-up as potential suspects for possible future proceedings.

Among other things, the greetin' faced plods are complaining that they are being interviewed for hours on end without rest.

One plod also said he was only able to use the toilet once during a seven hour interview/interrogation and when he was eventually allowed to spend a penny he had to be accompanied by a PIRC investigator.

Apparently, the police find these types of interviews oppressive and dehumanising and feel they have no place in a fair investigatory process.

Mmmm. So then Police Scotland...

How does it feel to be tasting some of your own medicine for a change? Medicine that you happily dole out to innocent members of the Scottish public every day.

I believe it's called Karma.
