MrCanary Posted June 28, 2007 Share Posted June 28, 2007 When I was a young cop, I bought ten cigarettes for a man who was locked in the cells at our police station because I felt sorry for him. A few months later, my pregnant wife and I were in a local pub for Sunday lunch when he walked in with his mates, saw us there, stared at me for a moment, then walked over and bought us both a drink. He said my simple gesture had made him realise that not all coppers were b......s. He then told me he was trying hard to reform. I wish I knew how he was getting on today.Later in my career (not connected with the above), I was beaten up by a man as I tried to arrest his son for indecent exposure. His argument was that his son was trying to reform and 'the filth' would not leave him alone because he had 'flashed' once before. I did arrest him eventually and he was convicted. He received help with his problem. In the years that followed, he was convicted on three separate occasions of stranger rape. With each of these offences, he had hid himself away and waited for his victim, beat her up and then raped her. Between each of the offences he received all the help available. In my opinion, he should have been locked up for life after the first attack. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
