    Durham crowbar deer-death police face disciplinary hearing

    I hope they are well represented and hopefully have had some advice from the bds and basc....

    BBC News - Durham crowbar deer-death police face disciplinary hearing

    Should be thrown out, completely legal.

    Typical emotive 'journalism'...........'beaten to death'. Kind of implies that the two officers involved were taking some kind of perverse pleasure in it, doesn't it? Bet the poor feckers are still haunted by it. I initially condemned it when I first read about it, but I'm sure there must've been a valid reason for them not to have shot it.

    As for the officers who reported them? I'd say by the sound of it they're more in need of disciplining than anyone else

    I'm assuming standard issue kit in an ARV in case forced entry is needed etc?

    None of us were there, so I would be waiting to hear what they have to say in their defence, with regards the option of firearm not being utilised.

    What's the disciplinary charge?
    Is probably has nothing to do with despatching the deer but more to do with disobedience of an order.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.
