Policeman Fired After Commenting on Facebook that Jihad Terrorists Should be Wrapped in Bacon

Jihad Watch reported on this firing last week, but what Ross Lister actually said had not yet been revealed.

Now we know: “the comment in question was on a post about the consequences for terrorists, former PC Lister wrote: ‘What? Wrap them in bacon?’”

According to Chief Constable Jerry Graham, this was beyond the pale: Lister had “damaged the reputation of the constabulary and undermined public confidence.

PC Lister’s behaviour and judgment has fallen so far below the standards expected that I have decided to dismiss him from the constabulary without notice.

The communities of Cumbria expect officers and staff to act on their behalf with integrity, fairness and judgment. The trust of local communities, particularly minority groups, is hard won and easily lost.”

Think about this for a minute. Lister suggested wrapping terrorists in bacon.

Now, Graham is afraid that this will result in the police losing the trust of the local Muslims.

Yet, Graham would no doubt also insist that jihad terrorists aren’t really Muslims at all, and have nothing to do with Islam.

If that is so, why should the local Muslims be offended at what Lister wrote?

This insanity will be the death of Britain. Quite literally.

 

“UK Policeman Fired For Facebook Comment About Wrapping Terrorists in Bacon,” by Virginia Hale, Breitbart, October 11, 2017:

A policeman has been fired from the Cumbria force for gross misconduct after making a Facebook comment that was judged as likely to cause offence to Muslims.

Ross Lister, a serving PC in Barrow-in-Furness for three years, was dismissed following a Misconduct Special Case Hearing at Cumbria Constabulary headquarters, the North-West Evening Mailreported Tuesday.

Speaking at the hearing, Chief Constable Jerry Graham said: “The conduct admitted by PC Lister today … refers to a Facebook post that he wrote that he either knew or should have known, or at least reasonably have foreseen, would have caused offence and be considered derogatory to members of the Muslim faith and by people of other faiths and none.

“PC Lister’s behaviour and judgement has fallen so far below the standards expected that I have decided to dismiss him from the constabulary without notice.”

The exact contents of the comment, which was left on another post and deleted days later, were not made public during the course of the trial.

According to the paper, the comment in question was on a post about the consequences for terrorists, former PC Lister wrote: “What? Wrap them in bacon?”

Prosecutors announced on Monday that the comment failed to meet “the very high threshold necessary for a criminal prosecution”, Cumbria’s chief constable said it “damaged the reputation of the constabulary and undermined public confidence.”

“PC Lister’s behaviour and judgement has fallen so far below the standards expected that I have decided to dismiss him from the constabulary without notice,” stated Graham.

He added: “The communities of Cumbria expect officers and staff to act on their behalf with integrity, fairness and judgement. The trust of local communities, particularly minority groups, is hard won and easily lost.”

The former police constable is far from the first to have found themselves in trouble with the law for irresponsible use of bacon. In June, Alex Chivers was jailed for six months for assaulting two Muslims in a north London street with a “slab of bacon”….
