Re: Is this how far we have sunk?
Habeas Corpus seems to be a distant memory in the UK. Many magistrates for example let their right wing political bias show constantly.
Locally a suicidal man was jailed after trying to throw himself off a bridge, not only did the judge ignore the mental health crisis but subjected a very vulnerable person to an offensive tirade about "silly and stupid behaviour" "wasting police time" and "endangering the lives of others who had to come and get you"
The fiscal service ignores and wilfully so police officers threatening members of the public, ignore any complaints and refuse to answer why they claim "not enough evidence" despite multiple witnesses to what amounted to threatening behaviour and breach of the peace by a uniformed and serving police officer.
But hey its ok to berate and ridicule a vulnerable person.
