Smokey And The Bandit

Seems there was a big 'rammy' at De Vitos nightclub in Arbroath, the town famous for the Arbroath smokies.

The disturbance, on Friday the 5th February was so serious that Police Scotland had to be called...only to find that it was Police Scotland officers who caused the 'rammy' (allegedly).

Two police officers have been charged with assault.

So where are the two police officers while they await their date with 'the beak'?

Languishing in a jail cell?

Off on gardening leave?

Don't be silly - the usual 'guilty till proved innocent' that we, the public, get slapped with from police doesn't apply when it's one of their own.

They have simply been moved elsewhere within the force while their case is ongoing.

Yes siree. These two officers are still out there, on duty, in their uniforms, wagging a haughty finger at us members of the public every day and pontificating to us about our behaviour.

Don't get me wrong, I'm happy that Police Scotland are correctly treating their colleagues as being innocent until proved guilty.

I just wish they'd do the same for us, the public. After all, it is the law.
