Coppers are coppers, right?
As a kid growing up, often heard the adults talking about coppers & they often quoted this:
He/they are more bent than a ten bob note (£0.50p).
I often wondered what they meant.

Could not find a direct reference to the 10.note but found this >

1. Completely and obviously false, fake, or illegitimate; not genuine or authentic in the slightest. ("Bob" was an informal word for a shilling prior to decimalization in 1971. There has never been a nine-shilling note in circulation in the UK.) Primarily heard in UK.

Here down under it was, "as bent as a 9 bob coin", or, "as good as a 9 bob watch", which amounts to the same thing (neither of which was good).

A stitch in time saves nine...
...unfortunately, this stitch up cost 38 years.
At the time of the victim's autopsy, semen was detected in an oral swab. Mr Hastings had maintained his innocence from the moment he was arrested, but a request for DNA testing of the swab in 2000 was denied by the district attorney.

DNA test could have saved 22 years

Respect the law? Yes.
Trust those who enforce/uphold/apply it? No frigging way!

All helped by the rush to "equality" rather than getting the most appropriately suited person for a job.
I can't help thinking what would happen if recruitment was not driven by having to meet artificial "equality" targets but by suitability for the job of being law enforcement officer.

That may be the case now, however, I can't judge what other forces or other countries got up to, but the Met was riddled with criminal & sexual predators back in the day.
One only has to research "Operation Countryman" & other such operations since.

Well our current state government thought that they had this swept under the carpet, but the carpet got lifted.

NSW Police watchdog reopens misconduct investigation into former commissioner Mick Fuller's racehorse ownership.

A case of crooks, crooked pollies, crooked cops and other disreputable people all mixing together?

Some cops should not be allowed to handle a firearm.

There's a CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION into the shooting because the "training firm" running the show provides the guns.

"The training provider is the one that provided the weapons," Spencer said. "And this was not a live fire training. That's all I know. How a weapon was introduced, we don't know. And that's what we're hopeful the investigation will turn over."

The officer was shot with a live round, he said, but it's not yet known how that happened.

"I can confirm that we don't ever use live ammunition in any sort of exercise," Spencer said. "That's not common for law enforcement."

Even when you're being handed a firearm rule no.1 is the 1st thing that you should do is check it and what it's loaded with, obviously this wasn't done at all.
