A police federation report highlights the absolutely disgusting working conditions that the police had to endure during the riots earlier this year.
The Police Federation, the staff association for police officers has published a long winded report into how police officers coped during the riots earlier this year. The report is based on the views of 8,500 officers who participated in a study.
I have no sympathy for the police whatsoever, but I am sure that some of them faced a hard time. I was expecting to hear tales of them being ‘frozen with fear’ or receiving nasty injuries, or working twenty four hour shifts.
I was wrong. Their biggest complaint was that they did not like the sandwiches they were given. The fillings had a limited shelf life, and they had been exposed to food poisoning. One officer complained of poor choice, and added, “By the time you get around to eating Tuna, Chicken or Egg, they have been lying round a warm van for hours”. They should try living in the real world. Everyone else has to buy their fucking own!
They also complained that, their batons broke too easily when used (presumably on someone’s head), their shields were not good enough, their helmets steamed up, and they had to spend long periods of time watching Sky TV in their vans.
Some officers complained of working thirty days straight, and had to sleep on custody mattresses, in mice infested police stations. Mice infested police stations are ok for people in custody then? They were also annoyed that bosses did not show any consideration to their domestic arrangements. They did not mention their massive overtime payments.
I cannot remember the last time I had a job in which I was given free food, sat round watching television all day, and got paid double time. They have been treated shockingly, my heart pumps purple piss!!
