British cop's lighthearted comment on having icecream thrown at him found "offensive"

Must not blame the mentally ill for ANYTHING

A joke at the expense of the mentally ill, however it was intended, is probably not the most politically correct thing for a police officer to post on Twitter.

The non-PC PC’s tweet included a photograph of an officer, said to be PC Nick Boyce, with ice cream splattered on his uniform.

With the picture was the comment: ‘Warning do not get  to [sic] close to people with  mental health problems when they are eating ice cream.’

One said: ‘Wow, this is ill-judged at the very least! I can’t get over it. I’m quite angry in fact.’

Another commented: ‘That’s absolutely abhorrent. I’d do more than smash an ice cream into the tw*t’s chest.’

Yesterday Avon and Somerset Police would not confirm what had actually happened ahead of the officer been covered in ice cream and whether or not he had actually engaged with someone suffering from mental health issues.

Pc Boyce is a serving officer with over 25 years’ experience and a former merchant navy sailor.

Yesterday other Twitter users urged Mr Gargan to punish the officer responsible.

Sounds like a threat to me. Quick, call the police!

Oh. Wait. It's just some one offended by a perceived insult aimed at a special group. No problem. Move on citizen.

Q: How many leftists does it take to screw in a light bulb?

I wouldn't last (out of jail) five minutes if I lived in England. It's bad here in America, but not THAT bad.

10:31 - the source is the Daily Mail which likes to highlight if not exaggerate cases of PC-ism. I don't think you should judge a country by biased or angled media.

10:31,we are rapidly moving in that direction here in the US. With our current crop of so-called leaders you had better exercise you right to speak out while you can and quit saying "well, were not as bad as they are" because we soon will be. Our current leaders do care what the constitution says.
