The public are aware that the Police are doing a very difficult job, in very difficult circumstances, and have been seriously impeded by the budget cutbacks of various past and present Governments. A few months back, we read an announcement by Sue Mountstevens that about 26 Avon and Somerset "Misconduct cops" had been told to resign, or dismissed, including one officer who was dismissed for "Telling a colleague to throw something out of a Police car". Now was this a banana skin, or was it a file, marked "Restricted access", detailing a "Neighbourhood dispute", in Western Toyland, which was supposedly ejected from the boot of a Police car going over a speed hump on the new Stockmoor development, about 4 years back?. The file was very conveniently handed in to the Bridgwater Mercury offices, a short time after the Mercury had printed a story about an unsolved residential arson attack. What was in that file?. Why was it marked restricted access, and why handed in to the Mercury offices, and not the Police station nearby. Sue Mountstevens stated that she was looking into the legalities of naming the misconduct cops, so how about an update, Sue?. What is inside this stinking can of worms?
