Police Call Suspected Victim Slag & B1tch - Perfectly OK

Couldn't flaming believe this one!

Please discuss.



A West Midlands Police misconduct panel found Constables Christopher Guest and Cavan O'Connell fell "substantially below" professional standards over the message left on Alex Faragher's mobile phone in which she was called a "****ing bitch", and a "****ing slag.

Following the ruling, Ms Faragher's solicitor said she was "disappointed" while a leading domestic violence charity sharply criticised both officers.

The chief executive of Refuge, Sandra Horley, warned that until such "canteen culture" attitudes among police forces were eradicated, similar incidents would continue.

During the hearing Pc Guest accepted making the comments about the young woman in an inadvertent recording on the evening of January 13 2014, as he sat chatting in a car with his colleague.

The 36-year-old, who has been with the force for 10 years and earned several commendations for bravery, said his remarks were borne of "frustration", and never meant for Ms Faragher's ears.

He has since apologised telling her he was "truly sorry" for his "ranting" voice message.

The panel on Tuesday ruled Pc Guest's actions amounted to misconduct but fell short of the higher level of gross misconduct, which might have seen him sacked.

He was handed a final written warning which will remain on his file for 18 months.

Panel chairman, Assistant Chief Constable Marcus Beale, said Pc Guest's remarks were "substantially below what is expected of a West Midlands Police officer".

But he added: "The panel assess that the breach does not require full range of sanctions, and that it amounts to misconduct."

Sandra Horley is right, the canteen culture still exists and in the main police response to domestic abuse is inadequate. Most officers don't want to deal with domestics.

I can't think of any other job, in the private sector of course, where if you were overheard, by anybody, not just the person you were trashing uttering such things you would keep your job.

That is a good point. He should have been sacked.
