Probe into police dog's statement
Police officers in the West Midlands could be in the dog house after a police dog apparently filed a witness statement.
The brief statement, on behalf of police dog Peach, read: "I chase him. I bite him. Bad man. He tasty. Good boy. Good boy Peach."
The 'statement' was signed at the bottom with a print of the Alsatian's pawmark.
It was reportedly written in response to a barrage of requests from the Crown Prosecution Service for an account from PC Peach on a crime, the Daily Mail reports.
Officers are said to have become frustrated after they continually told the CPS that Peach was a dog.
But it seems the joke report may have consequences as the force is now being investigated.
"The matter will be investigated," DCI Julian Harper, from West Midlands Police, told Huffington Post.
what do you think?
Oh please!! It's a brilliant bit of humour. Something this country is sadly lacking in nowadays. Instead of an investigation (wasting who alone knows how much money) give him a belly rub and a bone! Good boy P.C. Peach, good boy.
Too right! Bless him! :-)
It would be more appropriate to investigate the dunderheads at the CPS.
It's not funny folks - my cat has just found my cheque book :(
It only takes one wag in the Police to start a tale like this. I bet he didn't pawse for even a minute before issung the dogument. But just wait until his disciplinary hearing. There may be a problem with his bona fidos. He may be suspended, in which case he could end up sitting at home with a Beaune. Very agreeable. Realistically he'll probably be sent out to collar some villains, assuming he has at least one lead.
Brilliant! Real laugh out loud stuff. In view of all the depressing news elsewhere, I'd rather read the Quirky news and enjoy the comments.
Ha!...I sniff a tall tale here...
Love the fact you got 4 "thumbs downs"! They must come with a "groan"! Here's a thumbs up to but you back into the black =D
Someone needs to get a life - the CPS got what they requested a statement from peach
The bit about the dog giving a statement made me laugh anyway.And,like others have said on here it's only a bit of humour.It's harmless.
Exactly! I loved it!
someones in the dog house for this. ruff justice if yiou ask me
I sa, I say, I say....... "Your dog bit my leg" "Did you put anything on it?" "No, he liked it just as it was!"
Ha ha ha ha ha, boom boom.
fantastic! police demonstrating a sense of humour, and a cutting response to idiotic requests: "Age if under 18......4" LMFAO; I would've done something similar. Peach for PCC?
maybe it's genuine? Alsatian is one of the most intelligent breeds, possibly more so than some human PCs.... (or cps personell)
Cps found wanting again.
Hope the statement was written slowly for the CPS do have a reputation of stupidity to live up to - yes they will call the dog to give evidence am sure of that
Cripes, they only posted this in the police station for a laugh - it's not as if it reached court. Despite asking for this report numerous times, no-one at the CPS presumably knew what "he's a police DOG" meant, so they continued to request it. How could anyone fail to just see the funny side of this? There must be spare cash to throw at something before the end of the financial year, so what better than some sort of silly investigation?
The people in charge who kept asking for the dog's reports should be investigated, not the officers who had had enough.
The CPS probably assumed it was a case of 'dogging'
Tells you all you want to know about the CPS. And these are the humourless clowns who are deciding whether to prosecute offenders. Small wonder the justice system is held in such poor regard
Haha! Love it, it made me giggle! :-)
Maybe we could spend a couple of million on an investigation they are good at that woof woof
Hilarious response by the police officers, total waste of time and money now that they are being investigated. Where has the humour gone? The CPS need to pull their finger out and focus on real crime and real work and not be so pathetic!
