In a stable relationship

The BBC reports:

A student who called a mounted policeman's horse "gay" will not be prosecuted, it has been revealed.

But police have stood by their decision to take Sam Brown to court for making "homophobic comments" despite the Crown Prosecution Service dropping the case.


Bishop Hill said...

A policeman commenting at Bystanders explained that the case would have been pursued because it enables the police to tick a case clear up box. So it's the direct result of management by target.

If Bishop is right, expect a Lib Dem press release to be put out at some point in the next 12 months with the headline "Equine homophobia out of control!!!"
