  • Looks like I'm not going to be an Officer in Brussels!

    No officer in their right mind is going to work under these stressful conditions, how will they get officers?

    BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Police patrolling the red-light district of the Belgian capital have been ordered to stop visiting brothels and drinking in bars when on duty.

    A letter sent to officers in Brussels' northern police district, and published in a Belgian daily Tuesday, urged them to set a good example and earn the public's respect.

    "These officers think their duty hours are to be used to drink alcohol in bars, practice sports..., visit brothels or massage parlors, and entertain (intimate) relationships with residents of the neighborhood during their patrol," said the letter from a local police chief.

    "It is only by setting a good example that the police can make itself respected," the letter said, urging officers to adopt more conservative behavior.

    A police spokesman confirmed the letter was authentic, but said the police chief had only reacted to rumors of officers behaving badly while on duty.

    "There was no concrete evidence to substantiate any wrongdoing by police officers ... If there had been, they would have been prosecuted," said spokesman Roland Thiebauld.
    A true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.

          Great...now I guess I'll just be a fireman instead...whats the point of being a cop if you cant even pay a friendly visit to the local brothel?
          When passenger of foot heave in sight, tootle the horn. Trumpet him melodiously at first, but if he still obstacles your passage then tootle him with vigor.

            Just when you've established a solid rapport with the people you serve....another outstanding community outreach program down the tubes.
            Going too far is half the pleasure of not getting anywhere
