Commander Simon Foy, head of Scotland Yard's homicide and serious crime command, said: "We are disappointed by today's verdict but especially disappointed for Jill's family and friends. However, we respect the decision of the court."
That's the sort of thing a football manager says when his team lose a big game.
This isn't a game. In the final analysis George stands convicted of nothing more than being an oddball and a loner.
I can understand front-line police officers taking a personal interest in a 'result' or its converse, having been involved in the emotional charge of a major investigation. Someone with the rank of Commander needs to have a broader view, a view that includes the possibility of a Not Guilty verdict being the right one.
In the interests of justice.
