The Met's commissioner, Dame Cressida Dick, assured Londoners that the murderer is "a bad 'un" who doesn't represent the whole force. But clearly there's institutional rot in the Met as in many other police forces, and clearly there are a whole bunch more "bad 'uns" who gave cover to this guy for a long time.

Institutional rot is a problem everywhere, but in policing for sure and in Canada for sure.

I really don't get the framing of this London police murder at all.  Why would the police release 'guidelines' at all, unless they are accepting the idea that there are murderers in the police ?  It seems like a horrible error that he was on the force, and an institutional flaw that he wasn't found out as well as the entire response to this.

Toronto's Police are not trusted and the chief seems to be a strange kind of appointed king.  The anti-vax squad decided to inundate a local restaurant and she was unable to get the attending officers to do anything about them until celebrities started 'tweeting'.  Who knows what drives these things ?
