Laughing All The Way To The Trough
It's not surprising that one of the many affectionate terms used by the public for the police is "pigs".
Some of them have to take on additional work to make ends meet, and there was a bit of a hoo-hah when Jacqui "Five Bellies" Smith delayed their payrise. Although they supinely still accompany her to the kebab shop, apparently, rather than telling her to stop dodging salads.
But for those at the top tables, there's a large old trough available.
Seems that the sort who reach the upper echelons of the Met are very clued up on this one, it's almost as good as going legal and claiming discrimination, and it is available to white officers.
You retire after 30 years on a huge pension, and promptly join a police farce not directly under the Home Office, such as the British Transport Police. Then you get paid your pension PLUS the new salary and can start building a SECOND fat pension.
And you can do this even if you have failed to get knife crime under control, so even the incompetent can benefit.
