thought for the day
we must get away from this notion that criminals need to be punished. why should they be punished? :slno: this is an outmoded method of dealing with a person who committed a crime. they should be held in custody, preferably for a short a time as possible, so it doesn't cost too much and if when they are released, they then commit a further crime, well even then they still don't deserve punishment, instead they should be welcomed back into custody, preferably for an even shorter time than previously, so it costs even less than the first time. when released back onto the poor old UK public again, if they commit a further crime again, well - it's to be expected. the UK have a 'REVOLVING DOOR JUSTICE system,' it's not that good at actually providing justice for the UK public, but it is cheap and that's what counts :slsad:

Drug dealer: David Lochan sexually
molested an undercover female
police officer who was trying to
bring down a ring of drug dealers
that he was involved with

An undercover police officer was praised by a judge after he heard how she was so determined to snare a drugs boss that she carried on with her deception even when he molested her.
The blonde officer had infiltrated the murky world of dealer David Lochan by pretending to be a cocaine addict as part of a large-scale operation into Class A drug dealing.
But Lochan, 35, became suspicious and decided to test the officer by offering her free cocaine if she performed a sex act on him, a court heard.

When she refused, he exposed himself to her and groped her.
Despite her ordeal, the officer, known only as Emma, managed to maintain her cool and continued in her undercover role.
Yesterday a judge praised her professionalism and bravery as he jailed Lochan for ten years.
Judge David Aubrey, QC, said: 'It is quite remarkable that she continued. Her professionalism has been displayed in the manner in which she continued such difficult work in difficult circumstances.'

The judge told Lochan, who was known as Grammy, that he had departed from sentencing guidelines to hand down a heavier jail term because of the seriousness of the assault against the officer.
'Her anxiety, distress and concern, coupled with the suspicion by that time that you believed she was an undercover police officer, is almost unimaginable,' he said.
Liverpool Crown Court heard that the officer, who works for Merseyside police, was asked to go undercover as part of an inquiry into drug dealing on the Wirral, code-named Operation Lotus, in May last year.

Geoffrey Greenwood, prosecuting, said Emma was introduced to suspected dealer Lochan by a male drug user in early June.
