The reason things between the public & Dorset Police escalate is because these officers are often arrogant, provocative, and abuse their authority. See the Dorset Police Misconduct as showcased by PC Stephen Toms.
These officers either forget that they are public servants, or think that they are some how above the law and that the tax paying public are subservient to them.
Please see the video below.
PC J Dingle is incredibly stupid and dishonest, yet he is paid a salary commensurate of being part of the Weymouth Enhanced Policing Team.
He hasn't even got the brains to find a letter box when he was sent out to deliver leaflets.
