Police Scotland chief constable: Every homicide “dealt with to the highest possible standard” – BBC misreports
Police Scotland new chief constable said today of the national service’s performance:
‘That approach has brought benefits. For example, we can now say with certainty that every homicide in Scotland is dealt with to the highest possible standard. Every domestic abuse case is treated in the same way regardless of where the victim lives.’
These are important, newsworthy achievements which BBC Scotland mention only in passing at the end of the website report and not at all in the broadcast. Instead BBC Scotland essentially lie with a headline twisted from the chief constable’s words.
