A Relieving Day.
The most reassuring part of the whole West Midlands Kidnap of a Muslim Soldier Plot, or WMKOAMSP as I will be calling it for ease of reference, is the evidence that the public's ability to understand the ins and outs of a major police investigation remains undinted. What a triumph of detective skills it is that our great British public can determine the guilt and innocence of a man based on snippets gleaned from neighbours, family, police spokespersons and random religious and/or celebrity personalities.
It only goes to prove what I always thought: that we should let the public investigate crime themselves.
Sidenote: For my fellow bloggers who may be concerned about the threat of Professional Standards descending upon them, do not fear. Chief Constable Richard Brunstrom has also been in the doghouse in the past for foolish blurtings on his blog and it never did HIM any harm.
