Decision maker

It annoys me that people are not actually reading the facts about this case, The Police have put a file together and sent it to the CPS for a charging decision.

That decision was made by the CPS and not the Police yet people are still writing here about the Police closing ranks and not prosecuting their own. The police officers dealing with this tragic case wanted the Special Constable prosecuted for this incident lets all not forget that point. 

The CPS have got this decision very wrong and  I sincerly hope that the decision is reviewed and changed so that this woman can be held to account for the actions she took on the day.

Lets all stop blaming the Police just because this woman was a Special Constable at the time, this incident is not the fault of the Police just the fault of one reckless car driver.

My thoughts are with the family and hope that they can get some resolution to this matter in the form of a prosecution and custodial sentence for the car driver.
