The long arm of the law is not always right, as some 150 English and Welsh police were disciplined due to their unbecoming personas over on Facebook over the course of the past four years, with at least a couple of them facing the sack, while another seven have already resigned due to their foolishness with their social network profile. These figures and background data were made available to the Press Association newswire after a pre-planned festive-season Freedom of Information Act request. According to the agency, some of the officers’ misdeeds consist of boasting of their “exploits”, roughing up members of the public at this year’s protests and riots, making attempts to befriend victims of crime, in addition to loose tongues that wagged inappropriate comments in the direction of other people’s wives. Not only that, inappropriate pictures also dealt the “death blow” so to speak to many of the bobbies’ downfall.
