Kent Police is an occasional source of embarrassment to the people of Kent, which this time around is due to news that an Assistant Chief Constable (I believe there is more than one) has got round to apologising to DJ Alioune Haynes, four long years since colleagues had presumably decided to rough up the advisor who’d been helping the police having given several diversity talks to Kent police the month before.
Kent police are currently running a rather slick marketing programme, “you said, we did”, well I asked if Chief Constable Mike Fuller could apologise over the illegal activities of Kent police, at the Climate Change camp protest, as far as I know he didn’t and I assume he’s unlikely to.
Perhaps Kent Police authority could apologise instead or at least ask Mike Fuller assuming he hasn’t yet left for his new job at the CPS.
Anyway a fresh question, could Kent police explain why the two police officers involved in the incident looks to have been a racially motivated have not been disciplined or preferably sacked.
Most police in Kent are professional, and perhaps their job would be easier if the top management were quicker to resolve embarrassing mistakes.
