Chief Constable assumes he is judge and jury – aided by BBC

In a classic case of Police State reporting, the BBC has produced some wonderful propaganda.

Its report states that Chief Constable Tim Brain has said people caught fighting over water supplies or damaging bowsers in flood-hit Gloucestershire will be jailed.

The BBC report goes on to say that Magistrates will consider a term of between 21 and 28 days for a first offence after a guilty plea for crimes relating to the limited water supplies.

According to the BBC the measures are being adopted by all magistrates in Gloucestershire, and are supported by the local resident Crown Court judge.

Says who? The BBC ?, the Chief Constable ?.

Magistrates appear to have a different view, unless of course those in Gloucestershire are being told how to sentence those who appear before them.
Get this straight, Constable Brain: Sentencing is a judicial matter to be dealt with by the judiciary. If
you threaten anyone with a particular sentence you exceed your powers.
Your job is to bring offenders before a court. Thereafter it is out of
your hands.


We have enough trouble with traffic wardens trying to be judge and jury, we don't need Chief Constables illegally attempting to do the same.
