Norfolk police officer 'sues garage burglary victim'


www.bbc.co.uk

A police officer is suing a petrol station owner after apparently tripping on a kerb on his property when called to reports of a break-in.

PC Kelly Jones was called to Harvest filling station in Thetford, Norfolk, last summer.

She was not available for comment but claims she fell and injured her leg.

Norfolk Police said the force was "wholly unaware of this litigation", which it said appears to be "instigated privately" by the officer.

I am absolutely amazed that this is allowed to happen, it is very worrying that the very people paid to protect us are able to do this sort of thing by turning a victim of crime into a free money machine.

One can only hope that for the future of law and order in the UK this is thrown out asap.

What will become of the country if people become too scared to even phone the police for help for fear of lawsuits like this. It's genuinely one of the most absurd things I've heard in a long time.

I can't be the only one who is deeply concerned by this and fearful of it's implications in the long run.

The first thing I'd like to see happening is as a result of this is more stringent physicals for our law enforcers, this police officer is a bit on the roly poly side and could quite possibly have contributed to her fall. If that is the case we need to make sure that from now on all active members of the police are in peak physical condition with immediate suspension for those out of shape.

Wow, and they allow this klutz to carry a gun?
If this sham is allowed to go through, this is going to open some interesting doors. If I call the cops and they get into an accident responding to my call, will I be held libel?
