  1. Basically, does anyone know anything about it? My wife set up a business back in 2014, and comissioned a logo for her website and social media. She has discovered yesterday that someone in South Africa has taken that logo and is using it on her Facebook business page, doing the same job as my wife. My wife has sent a message to this page giving her 24 hours to stop using it now and in the future, and that she and her graphic designer are not happy. How would she go about escalating this if needed? Facebook seem hard to contact to try and pull the page, is there anything else that can be done? I realise it may seem 'small potatoes', but she has worked extremely hard over the last few years to get where she is now, and is really annoyed someone has swaggered in and done this. any help would be appreciated, thanks Mods, I felt it fit here, but obviously move as you see fit!
  2. You're off duty in your favourite fast food restaurant when you see a marked van outside, the local SNT Sgt and a number of PCSOs out on patrol. A few PCSOs decide to go inside the restaurant and order some coffee. As they are on duty Police staff, the staff serve them free of charge. Are there any offences committed by the staff and PCSOs? If so what do you do: 1) Give words of advice to the offending party. 2) Report the matter later. 3) Have a word with the Sgt. 4) Turn a blind eye. 5) Something else.

    After the medical

    Iv got my medical this coming thursday (24th) just curious what happens after?
  4. Policeman who answered £2m jewellery heist in Edinburgh rapped by chiefs for failing to cancel appointment first THE officer, who responded to the robbery at Hamilton and Inches in Edinburgh, was given a dressing down by his superintendent for failing to cancel a pre-arranged meeting with a complainer. A POLICEMAN who responded to ­Scotland’s biggest jewellery heist was given a dressing down by his bosses for failing to cancel an appointment first. The officer is believed to have been one of the first on the scene of the £2million armed robbery at Hamilton and Inches in Edinburgh on Friday. But instead of being praised for his actions, he was given a dressing down by his ­superintendent for failing to cancel a pre-arranged meeting with a complainer on another case. A source said: “It’s the talk of the stations. “No one can believe he was in trouble for responding to a robbery report and didn’t manage to cancel an appointment on the way there.” The uniformed officer and his working partner are understood to have been driving the “diary car” – a vehicle reserved for appointments with complainers of crime. They were on their way to a meeting when calls came over the radio that a gang of men armed with hammers, machetes and axes were raiding the shop in George Street. The control room then refused his plea to cancel the appointment. The source said: “They were ­probably the closest car there so they did their job and radioed in. “One of the cops told controllers he had an appointment and could they cancel for him. He was told to do it himself. “But in the rush to get to the shop and in the aftermath he didn’t get a chance to do it. “We’ve heard he was given a severe reprimand by his superintendent.” The incident has highlighted unhappiness by officers about bureaucracy within Police Scotland. The source added: “Cops have been told if they’re going to miss ­appointments, they have to phone the complainer. It’s a complete joke.” Another police source said: “Control are no longer there to support us. “Once the scale of the robbery became known and the sheer violent nature of it, the fact they’ve been given a row is just incredible. “And they wonder why morale is so low within the rank and file.” A spokeswoman for Police ­Scotland last night said the matter would be looked into. One person was taken to hospital with minor injuries following the raid, in which staff were rounded up as the gang smashed up the store and grabbed handfuls of jewellery. The hunt for the four men has turned to England after it emerged the white BMW used as a getaway car and found half a mile away was stolen from the Liverpool area. Source: Daily Record You couldn't make it up!!
  5. I've recently had cause to look up robbery and possession of a controlled substance on PNLD and, when comparing the two entries, noticed something that got me thinking. The entry for robbery referred to a stated case which held that the stolen item being a quantity of Class A made no difference to whether the charge would stick. I could see the logic in that: if you've dishonestly appropriated something that isn't yours then, to all intents and purposes, you've committed theft. Why would it matter whether the item was contraband in the first place? But then, the entry on possession of a controlled drug reminded me that it's a defence for you to have taken possession of it for the puposes of crime prevention (e.g. with the intention of handing it in to the police or destroying it). Now - this again seems fair enough to me, but putting those two principles together makes me wonder what would happen if someone were to steal a controlled drug from somebody else for the same purpose. It would seem that crime prevention is not a defence as far as the Theft Act is concerned - and in fact confirms that one of the points to prove is met ("intention to permanently deprive"). I'm guessing that, should such a situation arise, the principle of "two wrongs don't make a right" would apply, but was just curious as to whether this has been tested in practice. Or have I missed something in my reading of the Theft Act?
  6. This is a predicament. I own a nice 11-year old car (in very good condition, only c25K miles on the clock) which about 18 months ago I lent to a ex family friend so he could drive to and from work in London ~ the journey would have been awkward on public transport. The borrower was registered as keeper so he became responsible for expenses; we ticked the box "keeper" on the application to DVLA. About March/April 2013 I requested the car be returned to me; the borrower agreed but did not return the car until early July 2013 (after he had lost his job). Late in July 2013 I applied to be registered at DVLA as keeper then I took my car for service and MOT; the former borrower followed me to the service centre and flashing the logbook in his name and his driver's licence, persuaded the service centre owner to release the car to him. DVLA had and still have not registered me as keeper (they have a backlog). The garage owner also gave the former borrower my set of car keys. The former borrower refuses to give the car back to me on the basis that he is the registered keeper. The Metropolitan Police have declined to get involved asserting that this is a civil matter. The Met did advise me that I could simply have the car towed (I know where the borrower keeps it on the street near his home). The dealership I bought the car from is willing to provide me with a replacement key which will they say unlock the steering wheel (but not start the car, because of the immobilzer) so the car can be towed to the dealership where the replacement key will be programmed with the immobilizer data so that the key can be used to ignite the motor. My concern is that if I have the car towed, the borrower will call the Met who will treat the matter as theft (despite their previous advice, if the borrower asserts ownership such an outcome is possible I suppose) or TWOC and/or that the borrower on reporting the matter to the Met will (through ANPR for instance) tell him where the car is and then the borrower will repeat his trick at the dealership of demanding return of the car of which he is the registered keeper. I could get the dealership to change the locks completely but the borrower as registered keeper could get them changed back. Hurry up DVLA! but they have now asked if I still have the car (it seems that they heard from the service [and MOT] centre owner and have doubts as to who has the car): I don't still have it but once I get it towed I will have it. If I do get the car towed, what do I do with the borrower's tax disc and residents' parking permit: return them to him in the post perhaps. And round and round I go, with my head spinning! Does anyone have absolutely anything at all to say about this?!? All comments gratefully received. My username here is Blastproof but I don't feel that way at all !
  7. Hello I am Looking for some clarification on robbery and fear for another. Scenario A.Harry and Sam are walking down the street together when a man point a gun at Harry's face and says to Sam. ill blow Harry's face off unless you give me you wallet, and out of fear for Harry safety Sam gives the man his wallet. Answer A. I think you cannot fear for another so i assume this is not robbery. (I am unsure) Scenario B if then the man shot harry just in the leg to scare Sam Answer B would this then become robbery? Scenario C if harry was unaware of the threat on his life for some reason Answer C would not be robbery because harry is not afraid and Sams concern does not make this robbery but black male ( i think) Scenario D Sams at an ATM when a man says your mum is in my car and ill kill her unless you give me all your money, Sam cannot see the car but believes the threat to be true and gives the man the money answer D this is black-male? Scenario F if Sam can see this mum in the car Answer F does this remain black male because one cannot fear for another Scenario G the man puts Sam on the phone to his mother and the mum tells Sam to give the man the money and he does. Scenario G black-male? help would be great thanks guys!
  8. Something interesting (or at least I thought so) that came out of a job I dealt with recently. I've put my question into a made up scenario for clarity. A couple go to an all you can eat restaurant. One of the pair pays and they both sit down at a table. 1) The paying half of the couple enjoys their food and the non-paying member doesn't have anything to eat or drink. The paying half puts a bit too much food on their plate on their last go so the non-paying member cheekily finishes the wasted food. 2) The paying half collects food which both parties then eat. In both situations restaurant staff have caught the non-paying half of the couple eating food and accuses them of theft. By my thinking, I can't really see how situation 1 is theft - I would say that the food at the point belonged to the person who had paid and not the restaurant. Further I don't think you could prove that it was done dishonestly. In situation 2 I would suggest that both parties have committed theft as they both intended to take more food than what they had paid for. Do you agree with my logic? Have any other offences been committed in either circumstance? Is it just a civil matter? Will be interested to see what you guys come up with.

    Theft or not theft?

    Afternoon all, I'm running through a few practice questions from the TVP Foundation Degree course and I'm after a few answers. Jayne is at home with her 6 month old baby girl Emily. Emily is crying and hungry, so Jayne goes to the fridge and finds there is no milk. She knows that the man next door has 3 pints delivered by the 'Unidairy' man every morning. She knows he won't mind, so she goes and takes a pint from the step. Ian in the mean time is owed £20 by his brother Mike and has asked for it back on a number of occasions. While visiting Mike's flat one afternoon, Ian see's a £20 resting behind the clock on the shelf. He takes it, puts it in his pocket and makes his excuses before leaving. Which of the two is guilty of theft? a) Jayne b) Ian c) Both d) Neither. I've answered b) Ian. My thinking is that in Theft Act 1968 Sec 2, it says " If he/she appropriates the property in the belief that he/she would have had the owner’s consent had the owner known of the appropriation and the circumstances of it." Therefore Jayne has not dishonestly appropriated the milk, because she knows he won't mind. Section 2 also says " Appropriation shall not be dishonest if he she appropriates the property in the belief that he/she has in law the right to deprive the other of the property on behalf of him/herself or a third person. " I believe that Ian is guilty because the scenario doesn't state that Ian has any idea whether he has the right in law to deprive his brother of the £20. Am I correct? Or is it OK to assume that Ian does believe he has the right, there hasn't dishonestly appropriated the money? Answers appreciated, though the questions aren't due until next week. Thanks for your help, Ndaw4

    Friend shoplifting

    Hey there, Lets say you are shopping with a friend and all of a sudden they slip a handful of items into their bag. After pleading with them and telling them to put them back, they refuse and say "oh it will be okay". So you explain you are a special constable, one reason why they cant - for your (my/viewers) sake; you explain its illegal and unethical but they do not put it back. You have been seen by the staff walking with your friend and you begin to look guilty as you know what has happened. What would you do?
  11. Matt Delito, Gizmodo UK's 'Notes from the front line' cop bloggers post this week deconstructs the definition of "theft" http://www.gizmodo.c.../2012/08/theft/ I'm posting it seperately from the original threads here: http://www.policespe...he +front +line and http://www.policespecials.com/forum/index.php?/topic/123498-new-police-blog-on-gizmodo-uk/page__hl__%2Bpolice+%2Bblog because the comments offer lots of 'what ifs' and replies which may be of interest to any newer officers and because I think the break down of the definition deserves to be highlighted over and above the usual stories he posts.
  12. Have to agree with DI McAlpine on this one, utterly despicable.
