Reader’s comment: Our political police


In response to David Keighley’s BBC Watch: If you’re not a hate crime victim, you must be a thugMalcolm wrote:  

The police are, quite rightly, supposed to be politically neutral. Expressing overtly political views publicly used to be an offence under Police Discipline Regulations. If this Superintendent Paul Giannasi really has made such divisive comments on a public platform then he should be investigated, disciplined and dismissed: he is in the wrong job. It is modern senior officers like him, if he did indeed make such comments, that have caused the reputation of the police to plummet from the once enviably high position it enjoyed in the days when I was young.
