The Wanker From Wiltshire

So Sgt Mark Andrews has been released on bail pending an appeal. This story is boiling my piss for a number of reasons.

He is clearly guilty of an offence that clearly warranted the prison term he was given. We've all seen the CCTV. The only purpose of an appeal would be to get him off on a technicality.

I always thought that once you had been found guilty and sentenced, you were sent to prison. If you appealed it was done from there.

You are obviously innocent until proven guilty, however, I thought that once you had been found guilty, any appeal process was your chance to prove that an error had been made, and that you would still be considered guilty until you proved otherwise. Hence, you would do it from in prison via your lawyer.

I must be wrong (there can't possibly be one rule for us and one for them?), so please correct me if I am. If I am not wrong then why has this man been released after he has been found guilty of a crime and sentenced to prison?

I really hope this appeal still finds him guilty and his ultimate fate is to serve his term. As I said, we've all seen the CCTV. There is no excuse for that, even less so from a police officer.

Public respect for the police must be at an all time low and they are doing nothing to help themselves. My contempt for them is already complete, however there must be people who still harbour respect for the police. I wonder how many will lose what they have left if this man gets off on a technicality.

The police will not be able to rule by consent of the people if this is how they treat them. They will have to rule by force instead. Pretty much like Sgt Mark Andrews.
