In this thread a few days ago I made a drunken thoughtless throwaway comment as a bit a laugh, then was too inebriated to remove it.  Most of you think I am an idiot anyway and to be honest I realise I have been, so whilst I doubt anyone took it seriously, I wish to sincerely apologise for that post which has subsequently been removed.

I do have respect for the work the police do and know that whilst there will always be a few odd balls and bad apples in any profession, on the whole the police I have had few dealings with are good people that try to do a hard job well. From My understanding in his time on the force Derek was a force for positive change and he will be greatly hurt by the actions of this PC and any others who have embarrassed the reputation of the force. 

I have taken time to compose this response mainly because I have been taking stock. I have realised that I have developed a drink problem and that I post here mainly after consumption of alcohol so not doing myself any favours. I have therefore decided to get sober and remove myself from this forum permanently.

I am sincerely sorry for any hurt Derek may have felt and realise he won't want to be tarred with the same brush as this thief. As means of apology I wish to make a sizeable (for me) cash donation to a local charity of Dereks' choice in his name as my parting gift. If Derek could PM me the name of the charity I will make a deposit before the end of the week.

I will not be drawn into any further discussion.

If it’s not £500 you’re not being serious.

Wow. 

Certainly an interesting post from Charlie Brown. Pretty clear who gets the respect from this situation.

Not really I’d like to know why that was posted in the first place. Has CB been threatened with legal consequences? The last post similar to that was by a Mr Chumley Warner if I recall correctly.

Well if that is sincere and it sounds like it is respect to him from me to admit issues . I know how difficult it can be in my own experience ,not drink related , to lay your cards on the table so again massive respect .

Maybe Mr Wright or Mr Flint could explain whether it’s the cops or the Attorney General who changes charges?  

AG’s.
 

There may have been a plea bargain.

There is a balance between throwing the book, pursuing weaker charges and getting a guilty plea when compared with costs of a contested trial with forensic accountancy evidence.

Sentencing difference between £60 and £98k would be marginal.

Yeah, if Charlie Brown made a big donation to charity every time he offended someone, he would be broke very soon .

That resulted in a rather good Manx Forums party down at Amber Bar (now no longer I believe).

I wouldn’t expect so. It’s effectively a turning up medal. I’ve seen people with an appalling record get it.
