Duty To Assist?

The Telegraph reports that four police officers who were flagged down by a store manager in December 2014, as his colleague detained a thief just feet away allegedly said they were "not kitted up" to help and drove away.

Merseyside Police PCs Jonathan Webb, Mark Higgins, Joanne Parr and Paul Birch had been travelling in a police car in Liverpool when they were flagged down by Tesco deputy store manger David Markey.

He asked them for help as a security officer Shaun Rigby apprehended the thief - named Fagan - in the road after fleeing the shop. Mr Rigby was assaulted by Fagan "kicking or kneeing" him in the head.

The officers are subject to a misconduct hearing after allegedly declining to help. They all deny that they breached standards of professional behaviour.

The hearing will last around four days.

    Call me cynical, Ken, but I can't help thinking that these 4 police officers would not be subject to a misconduct hearing if it hadn't been for the adverse publicity this case has attracted!

    "Not kitted up"?

    Aren't they given training to deal with this kind of incident? In any case, there were 4 of them to apprehend one criminal. If 4 coppers cannot arrest one criminal, already detained and being guarded by a member of the public easily, there is something very wrong! It begs the question, what is the point of the police if 4 of them cannot carry out a simple arrest!

    "They all deny that they breached standards of professional behaviour."

    Of course they do! They are hardly going to admit to doing anything wrong or being incompetent, are they?
