    Good I like seeing ‘Lillie Law’ puting its own house in order. Homophobs in any organisation should be rooted out!

    They are stupid pigs.

    You do crap like this, you ge in trouble. This is what should happen. Good to see the Police policing themselves!

  4. “did not state what punishment they received”

    This is not good enough if you want to build bridges!

  5. Yes but the simple fact is had it been rascists emails thy would have been sacked for gross misconduct

  6. A couple of jealous queens probably.

    These homophobic police can simply transfer to my local police Constabulary where they will be welcomed with open arms, given the level of existing protection for numerous known homophobic police officers I can personally identify and name already.

    But they won’t say HOW they were disciplined. Probably a slap on the wrist. After all, this is the same force who gave a “dressing down” to a policeman recently for posting homophobic comments on his social networking site. But what can you expect when you look at how homophobic the current Scottish Government is.

    I would suggest they be punished by making them have dinner with the archbishop of Liverpool.

  10. If Lotahin & Borders Police want to build bridges with the LGBT Community, then start with getting rid of these homphobes and set an example for other forces
    Forces like Strathclyde are full of them, maybe now lessons will be learnt and these mugs will realise they will be out of a job if they do what they are doing.
    SACK these cops, maybe then LGBT communties will then see that not all cops are bad ones and if they want to build bridges and be transparant, then start now and act.
