London police Commissioner quits without regrets

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson has resigned following the phone hacking scandal.

A nice uniform is no proof of a good character. Sir Paul Stephenson did not see the writings on the wall.

Britain’s most senior police officer has faced criticism for hiring former News of the World executive Neil Wallis – who was questioned by police investigating hacking – as an adviser.

Sir Paul said his links to the journalist could hamper investigations. He said there were lessons to be learned from the affair, but he was leaving with his integrity intact.

He also said he had no knowledge of the extent of the phone hacking.

My comment:

Also criminals are knighted by the Queen. Here a police commissioner.

Paul Stephenson say that there is nothing to be learned from the affair.

That is an interesting statement.

I guess He feels it is ok that the Police has corrupted its ways, and acts like a doormat for money makers like Ruppert Murdoc?

Another way to read this comment, is that media rats and police officers must continue to work together in the future.  Only without the leadership of Stephenson.

Fools are fools, even when they have been knighted by the Queen, call them self sir’s, and have a nice title on their business cards.

 1 Corinthians 15:33
Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”

Maybe a year or two in prison, would make Stephenson understand what took place on his guard?
