Rewarded For Failure

You may remember the tragic case of Chinese delivery driver Simon San who died from a racist attack which shocked communities the country over.

The police were heavily criticised for their investigation, especially when senior officer Gareth Blair described Mr San as being the victim of a “fairly minor assault”.

Simon San is dead.

This was far from a “fairly minor assault”.

So in one of those 'where are they now' style stories, I invite you, dear reader, to guess where Gareth Blair is now.

Sitting in a police call centre filing reports on missing cats?

Demoted to helping old ladies across the road in some remote Scottish island?

Long since retired in to obscurity?

Eh no.

He has just been promoted to Scotland's top murder detective.

So do you feel safer sleeping in your bed tonight then?
