WHEN PROSECUTORS GET WHAT THEY ASK FOR

The law is a tricky beast to tackle. Trials, witnesses, evidence and precedent are all part of a complicated system that should hopefully result in justice. Sometimes, there are misunderstandings and difficult waters to navigate. But what happened to the West Midlands Police Department was absolutely ridiculous.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) repeatedly contacted the department, hoping to get an account of an altercation from Officer PC Peach. PC Peach was unavailable to give a statement, but that didn't stop the CPS. Neither did the fact that Officer Peach is a K9 officer. Frustrations were mounting on each side, so the department gave in and sent the following statement:

Although it was meant as a joke, The Professional Standards Department will be investigating the police department after the false statement. Obviously, someone should be examining the prosecutors who couldn't understand why a German Shepherd couldn't give a statement.
Share PC Peach’s hilarious statement with others. (Good dog!)

  1. Do you really want to know how screwed up our system is, Stop watching TV law shows and go sit in a real court room for a few days. And watch what really happens. I have taken friends with me to see for themselves, and they all walk away with a befuddled look on their faces, and a WTF Holy shit, question afterwards.

  3. Why do ridiculous things like this happen? It's because people put rules, laws and procedures above common sense! Thomas Jefferson summed it up perfectly when he said; "The law makes an excellent servant, but a terrible master." Or, as stated in "The Peter Principle" "In any organization, everyone rises to their own level of incompetence." That is to say, a person gets promoted until they reach a position where they just can't perform efficiently. This is why idiots run the world.
