Too many murders...

Odd title for a post in the "Funnies" section.

However, just sorting out some admin. yesterday and found this email.

It hails from my time on the murder squad (AMIP) in London - twenty years ago now.

The HO guidelines were that each Senior Investigating Officer (SIO), should be working on one murder at a time. I remember that I had twelve on the go.

The Commander (a decent man) tried to take us out of the line of fire, for some much needed breathing space. It (of course) came to nought - but he did try.

I very much hope things are better nowadays, but suspect this will not be the case.

Herewith is the email he sent to the team - just an example of the "Gallows humour" that the "Blue Light Services" use to get through the week.
