The law is a tricky beast to tackle. Trials, witnesses, evidence and precedent are all part of a complicated system that should hopefully result in justice. Sometimes, there are misunderstandings and difficult waters to navigate. But what happened to the West Midlands Police Department was absolutely ridiculous. The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) repeatedly contacted the department, hoping to get an account of an altercation from Officer PC Peach. PC Peach was unavailable to give a statement, but that didn’t stop the CPS. Neither did the fact that Officer Peach is a K9 officer. Frustrations were mounting on each side, so the department gave in an sent the following statement:
Officers couldn’t understand why the CPS wouldn’t understand that Peach was a dog, so they sent back this statement.
Although it was meant as a joke, The Professional Standards Department will be investigating the police department after the false statement. Obviously, someone should be examining the prosecutors who couldn’t understand why a German Shepherd couldn’t give a statement. Please Share PC Peach’s hilarious statement with others. (Good dog!)
