hasn't the Metropolitan Police understood how people work and how to respect its own staff

Officer victimized

To understand what went on here you would need to have the full facts, and that isn't going to happen. On the face of it an officer was subjected to a sustained period of racist and homophobic abuse,and I'm not surprised to hear that he suffered from depression as a result.

Police work of the kind this officer was doing involves daily contact with a tight-knit group of colleagues,and anyone who is 'different' is likely to come in for some robust treatment. It's regrettable, but it happens, and I think it extremely unlikely that Police services will ever be totally rid of such attitudes.

That senior officers should have apparently taken part in the harassment is a disgrace.

I find it disturbing that despite many years of racial awareness & other awareness training,these kinds of cases still occur,in all kinds of employment.Personally I dont give a dam whether the person is black,gay or both as long as that person can do the job & wish the rest of society would accept it.I also find it disturbing when some individuals opt to play the race card usually purely to strengthen a weak case(IMHO regarding a nurse who took the local health authority to court)In this case linked to,it would seem he claimed 113 instances & 10 were found proven,thats 10 too many but shows that attitudes have changed for the better.
