Justice In Camera

This is an unpleasant story about an experienced police officer, who has been convicted of assault. As ever, these incidents are never completely straightforward, and I suspect that the victim was no angel; she certainly doesn't look compliant in the pictures, but of course that cannot justify her being assaulted, as the court found. It is not just extraordinary that the Sergeant completely lost his professional cool, for whatever reason, but the oddest thing is that this custody suite,like most others, is covered by CCTV that is always on, so the officer would have known his actions would be recorded.
Whatever his motives on the day, he is likely to pay a high price, including the loss of a decently-paid job.
