Is it me, or are police officers getting shorter.. Actually, I probably can’t say that without upsetting someone, maybe Pc Mike Baillon’s wife is very tall, who knows, and to be honest, I don’t really care.
Had a laugh at this story in the Mail today about Pc Mike Baillon who is set to receive a six figure payout in compensation for becoming the butt of jokes from fellow officers.
The way I see this story, PC Baillon stopped stroke victim pensioner Robert Whatley, 74 for not wearing a seat belt. Whatley claimed he was reversing his Range Rover at the time. Thinking that the incident had been dealt with, Whatley drove off, yea right, he was probably totally hacked off that a police officer, who is, please remember a public servant, was about to fine him for not complying with enforced legislation to keep himself safe, as so successfully promoted by paedophile, necrophiliac child abusing pervet, Jimmy Savile. (see how I shoe horned that into the post, it really helps with Google searches).
Where was I? oh yes, so Whatley claimed he thought the incident had been dealt with, drove off, leaving PC Baillon rather annoyed, because he had probably already started writing out the ticket, and you wouldn’t believe the paperwork involved in voiding one of those. So Baillon gave chase, full “blues and twos”, obviously a fan of “Police Camera Action”
The chase, which lasted 17 minutes, across eight miles of country lanes, ended with Baillon making a complete dick of himself. Not because he used extremley excessive force, but it took him 15 attempts to break the window.
At no point did stroke victim pensioner Robert Whatley, 74 exceed the speed limit, and said he thought the kind officers were escorting him home lol. When they finally stopped the Range rover with a stinger, Baillon and another officer wreaked the Range Rover, and dragged the terrified stroke victim pensioner Robert Whatley, 74 out, after covering him in shattered glass.
Stroke victim pensioner Robert Whatley, 74 was taken to court and found guilty of not wearing a seat belt, failing to stop for a police officer and having tinted car windows that did not conform to legal requirements.
He was cleared of failing to stop after an accident. He admitted having a registration plate which didn’t adhere to regulations and was fined a total of £235 and ordered to pay £300 towards prosecution costs.
He was subsequently awarded a £20,750 payout from the police over the damage caused to his Range Rover and also received £45,000 is costs.
I’m not saying stroke victim pensioner Robert Whatley, 74 is totally blameless here, but what has this whole crazy police state nonsense caused by not wearing a seat belt cost you and me?
