I like the way the article implies there shouldn't be any gun control because some bent copper defrauded £800.

The article is very biased and slanted to give false argument for the author's own agenda.

However the deed was done and the rewards will be reaped.

He was a former Constable. He was a civilian employee. He abused his position and violated the trust placed him. He will go to prison.

But then when you have doctors charging 200 quid for a letter and solicitors charging 200 quite for “opinion” and the years of austerity forced on the public sector, this is the result. Sir Robert Marks’ enquiry in the 70s illustrated the risks of having a well trained but poorly paid police service.

Agreed, was always helpful and pleasant. Can’t argue with the facts, though it’s a shame for sure.

North Yorkshire has gone from one of the best counties to be a firearms owner to big problems. We have also lost head of firearms Dave Coutts

Yes he certainly abused his position and most probably his conditions of employment too, but I wonder if the judge will consider that alone will be sufficient to impose a custodial sentence. Or will the matter of the FAC air rifles swing the balance against him?


Only £200 for a solicitors opinion, that's cheap!

I seemed to have missed this point? What about FAC air rifles have I missed?
