This is the official blog of ex-Sgt Ellie Bloggs. I was a real live police constable then sergeant for twelve years, on the real live front line of England. I'm now a real live non-police person. All the facts I recount are true, and are not secrets. If they don't want me blogging about it, they shouldn't do it. PS If you don't pay tax, you don't (or didn't) pay my salary.

The Warrants Drawer.

This driver who ran over a woman, made off and then failed to appear in court has finally been brought to justice. The police claim that the offender "disappeared off the face of the earth", otherwise known as going to live in West Norwood.

I imagine that what really happened was:

The offender, Mr HEARD, was traced, arrested and charged. Police applied for him to be remanded in custody due to his poor record of turning up in court and consistent offending on bail. He appeared in court the next day and the magistrate hummed and hawed and decided that it was unlikely that the guy would abscond, given he was only to be sentenced to a couple of years in jail. HEARD was given bail, failed to show up in court and a warrant was issued for him. If Brighton nick is anything like Blandmore, the warrant got filed in THE WARRANTS DRAWER, a place of mystical and ancient cases from the mists of time and laws that don't exist any more. Every now and again when someone stuck a pin in the letter "H", HEARD's warrant was taken out and someone knocked on the door of the address he had not lived in for five years. The warrant would then be returned to the drawer where it remained until Heard was caught nine years later, probably when stopped because he had a brake light out.

This case led me to read the charity Brake's take on "death by dangerous driving". This is a little bee I have in my bonnet. It's a pretty big bonnet.

Brake effectively state:
  • that a bus driver working an extra shift (which may or may not have been his choice) who suffered a lapse of concentration and ran a red light, killing a teenager, should have been sentenced to far more than fifteen months in prison.
  • that driving at 40mph in a 30mph zone should constitute "dangerous" driving rather than just speeding.
  • that if you allow people to drive faster when no one else is on the road, you are imposing a "curfew" on other drivers.
  • that if you overtake lots of times dangerously, this is no worse than overtaking once dangerously.
  • pleading guilty should not reduce your sentence.
As I have ranted about before, I agree wholeheartedly with these and more. If you are tired and make a fatal mistake, you are a murderer and should never walk free from jail. If you speed, you are a murderer and should never walk free from jail. If you drive at 120mph on an empty motorway, you are infringing the human rights of others. All victims and witnesses of these incidents should be dragged through court in a full trial and guilty pleas are unacceptable no matter what the circumstances.

Last but not least, if we implemented all the above measures, no doubt awful things like this wouldn't happen any more:

Here's to a speedy recovery for the Hamster.

I take you are going to write to the Federation about your contributions being spent on defending this officer then?

I know I'm angry about it! I've never read such drivel about police drivers testing their cars at Warp 20 before. He should have taken a plea, been fined and disqual'd, and been lucky to keep his job, and the feds are wasting thousands, of yours and mine, supporting his defence. And he has a moustache!

He was found guilty. If the case hadn't taken 2 and a half years he might have had a higher penalty than a discharge. No speeding case is worth 2 and a half years!

Uh, he's a grade 1 driver.

I've trained with them.

They're rather good.

It was a sensible time, in fairly good conditions.

He'd not been on shift long.

It was a new car.

Perhaps people complaining would rather he'd:
1) Not responded fast enough to a call?
2) Responded fast, not known the performance of the car, and crashed?


P.S. Hamster was driving in a safer way than half of the hoi poli on the road... speedy recovery to him.

Uh, yeah, duh! Thank you we realize he was an advanced driver, that was a basic tenet of his defence, but as an advance driver he should have put the basic principles of 'Roadcraft' into effect which he failed to do. Seems to be an example of dual standards here. By all means familiarise oneself with a new car, but 159 mph on a publc road?Why didn't he inform his supervisors he wanted to carry out these 'tests', submitting a full risk assessment, including the times, location etc, emphasising the lack of risk/harm to other road users; or, ask to be allowed to use a test/racing track stating that until he had achieved Mach1 he wouldn't feel able to drive the car on duty? But we all know why really...don't we? He's a flash piss taker who is now squandering the Federations funds, he should be paying for his lawyer himself. I think the public would feel more reassured these days that we had properly trained drivers who drove to the highest standards and to their abilities AND WHO GOT THERE without mowing anyone down or wrecking their car and those of others, injuring themselves, colleagues and other innocent MOP's. The fact is police driver training has suffered from constant tinkering and the lowering of standards. Drivers were always told to familiarise themselves with new vehicles, but I'm afraid this cheese-muncher was just taking the mick

I want to know what kind of police car he managed to get up to that speed. I have trouble keeping up with tractors in ours!

It was a 3.2 litre Petrol I think a vectra GSi which is considerably more cabable than a diesel focus.

Now on danger there was no collision therefore how can it be dangerous? (answers on a postcard please).
