The father of missing boy Allan Bryant has publicly criticised Police Scotland for failing to find his missing son. He has made an official complaint to Police Scotland's Professional Standards Department (the unit who investigate complaints against police), calling the police search for his son 'a joke'.
He complains that while police come to his house and talk a good game, essentially they do nothing.
Well spotted Mr Bryant. Welcome to the club.
Mr Bryant will get nowhere with his complaint - because the police investigate themselves. And just like their friends in the Crown Office & Procurator Fiscal Service, police will not investigate his complaint. Instead they will use all the resources at their disposal to find a way to dismiss it.
Sure, some time will pass during which Mr Bryant will be told they're still investigating. They're not. They're doing nothing. They're simply passing time to make it look like they're doing something.
Ultimately Professional Standards will respond to Mr Bryant to tell him his complaint is not being upheld.
He can rest assured that the Police Professional Standards department of untrustworthy Police Scotland are experts at doing nothing and covering up for their fellow officers when faced with complaints from the public.
Because they learned from the best - their friends at the corrupt Crown Office & Procurator Fiscal Service who have been doing it for years.
And still getting away with it to this day.
