This has NOTHING to do with the fact that this man was a BTP Officer- so why bring it up? Were these offences undertaken on BTP duties? No. Were they undertaken in uniform? With the approval of his superiors? No, of course not- they were undertaken by an individual on his own time and of his own volition.

Bringing the name of BTP into disrepute is shameful and disrespectful of the work they do, Argus.

You would hope members of the authorities would act in a decent a lawful way. People you can trust and rely on in times of need.

Seems this guy went against that expectation.

Surely you'd hope that anyone would act in a decent and lawful way though so, as the previous poster said, what does his job have to do with it.
