This is the official blog of Sgt Ellie Bloggs, a real live police sergeant on the front line of England. It's not the official opinion of my police force, but 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 pay my salary.

Forgiveness.

Thank you to a reader for this link to The Forgiveness Project. The founders of this project believe that we should forgive those who vandalise our cars and steal from our houses.

On the site you can read about the amazing power of forgiveness, such as the woman who met her husband's killer and just wanted to give him a big hug. Or the woman who was abused as a child and never forgave anyone at all but wishes she had.

As a WOMAN, I am sensitive and think about puppies all the time. Therefore I would like to propose Forgiveness in Blandmore. It could be a low maintenance solution if anyone who is willing to meet with his/her victim and say sorry could be kept out of jail and the courts. It's not as if we'd just be doing it to save lots of money and get in the national papers.

PS Anyone else think it's odd that The Forgiveness Project's logo is a burning heart?

I like the idea of forgiveness, but for me it would have to be with conditions attached. For example: I would forgive someone breaking into my house and nicking my widescreen telly, but only if I could then go round to his place and make off with his spanking new plasma, after kicking him square in the nuts. Seems reasonable, no?

They use a burning heart coz the whole idea gives the victims of crime indigestion.

Let's go one step further. Leave the front door unlocked and let the scumbags know when the insurance has coughed up for that new TV; then they can come round and nick it and have a hug and a cup of tea (biscuits optional) at the same time.

Should be a bleeding heart shoudn't it? Whenever I see the victims or relatives of victims declaring how they can forgive a person (for whatever - mind you they're normally after a 'B on B' shooting), I rationalise this by thinking it's their way of dealing with grief (and how I wish I could be like that) - often, the more cruel reaction I have is that these people actually seem to enjoy the limelight and publicity that the incident (and more often than not - death) has brought them. On one occasion recently, I heard that the brother of a shooting victim actually ran home to change his clothes/sunglasses before he could be shown tenderly holding his mother who was duly wailing and screaming for the assembled press. Uncharitable thoughts I suppose, but I have seen the relatives of murder victims - and I know real grief when I see it. There's an awful lot of cachet in some 'communities' of being caught up in a drive by - they've never had so much attention in their lives! The burning heart is a misguided organisation!

BTW - About time you stopped doing nights isn't it?

I suspect that many widows would be happy to hug the man who put them into that state.

And, pcsw- don't ask, don't tell, please.

I thought the symbol they use symbolises the whole "if you dont forgive - burn in hell" school of thought

Isn't this the basis of Restorative Justice???

[I don't think of puppies at all (except when someone leaves the Sun in the nick); I think of kittens]
