A police officer who had been dealing with one of the worst kind of calls anyone in the emergency services can attend – the sudden death of a baby – returned to his vehicle to find a heartless note that had been left on his windscreen.
In a tweet, @NorthWestCop said:
‘Just left Tesco. Handwritten note on the windscreen of my patrol car. ‘£100 fine for shopping on duty’.
‘If only I could tell the person who wrote it that I have just spent the last 7 hours at the sudden death of a baby.
‘I’d bought a sandwich.
‘We’re not robots. #BeKind #WoundUp’
While the idiot who left the message would not have known what this police officer had just dealt with, they should have known that he/she might be having their first break having only dealt with a call like this.
Because this is the sort of tragic event the men and women who serve in the emergency services and NHS have to deal with.
