PC Mike Baillon, 42, quit his job after becoming the butt of jokes from fellow officers over a YouTube video of him battering the Range Rover of a 74-year-old driver. The video of PC Baillon wielding his truncheon became a YouTube sensation – with the tribunal being told it has been viewed online thousands of times. The tribunal heard PC Baillon walked out of his job after being ridiculed every day by his colleagues at the police station where he worked, reports the Daily Mail.
So, lets get this straight. Because he got the hump about the (richly deserved) ribbing he got from other coppers for his extreme, thuggish and violent behaviour – he didn’t even attempt to ask the driver to open the door and then take the key – he walks out of the job, sues the police, and the poor bloody taxpayer picks up a bill for £430,000. Poor bloody lamb. This seems to be a case of small man syndrome by a petulant little pillock who looks like the stroppy type who would attract ridicule like turds attract flies and who probably only joined the force because it enabled him to throw his weight around. They say this prat would have made Sergeant. I would have pitied any copper who had this buffoon for a skipper.
Despite the worst efforts of some officers, there are still some decent old style thief takers in the UK’s police forces that deserve our respect. Some of them experience real traumas in the course of their duties, but still get on with the job rather than take the easy option of leaving with a big payoff. Even those that can’t cope after intensely stressful and emotional incidents that can be truly horrific at least leave for understandable reasons. But being mocked by colleagues because of their own ridiculously over the top actions isn’t one of them. No doubt his reaction to the mockery fuelled its continuation.
I for one am sick and bloody tired of people like this self absorbed idiot abusing public money to fund a lifestyle change, or to simply cash in because they see an opportunity to do so. Apologies for the language, but sometimes….
And in other news…
The 6-year-old boy who was suspended from school because his parents refused to fill his lunch box with tofu, lettuce, carrot sticks and wheaten bread as per the school’s dictatorial ‘healthy eating’ policy, preferring to give him a sausage roll, or scotch egg and mini cheddars or other snack type foods, has now been expelled from his school – and his younger brother’s funded sessions at the school’s pre school have been withdrawn. The school said:
If we are faced with a situation where a parent threatens to send a pupil into school with insufficient food to sustain them throughout the school day, it is a risk we simply cannot afford to happen.
This is the usual demonising, twisted doublespeak we have come to expect from the control freaks who are determined to take control of the upbringing of our children. The issue was not insufficient food, rather the parents did not conform to the kind of food the school decided should be provided.
The school had said that it was extremely disappointing that the media have been provided with such grossly misleading information which has resulted in them running a wholly inaccurate and potentially damaging story for the school, yet its subsequent comments do not correct any of the original assertions, instead they reinforce them – particularly when the statement adds:
…during the course of a recent four day exclusion, the pupil’s parents made it publicly clear that their child would not be following the school’s policy on healthy eating upon their return.
Welcome to the glorious fruits of the quiet, slowburn cultural marxist revolution in action.
