Officer Forced Out of Met after Sex with Prostitute

THE SACK was the reward handed down yeasterday to a Metropolitan police sergeant caught having sex with the prostitute he was meant to be investigating.

Manjit Johal, 43, was told to resign his post after a damning verdict by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC), which found Johal guilty of misconduct and abuse of authority.

"The sergeant's behaviour was disgraceful," said the IPCC's Deborah Glass. "He has brought shame on himself and his former colleagues."

In 2005, Johal went to a flat in Walthamstow that police suspected of being a brothel and ended up indulging his lust with a woman who worked on the premises.

"I am pleased the Metropolitan Police has shown a robust approach to misconduct in this case," said Glass on Johal's forced-resignation.

Although everyone's entitled to an opinion on this one, we have to point out that as it stands, prostitution is illegal for a reason. A ban on selling a woman's (or man's) body for sex is quite a bit different than telling people they can't have fermented starch in a glass.

what a shame there was a time in our history where brothels were the norm and getting london escorts was not a big deal at all, those who wanted them could have them with no problem. I really think it should be legalized, prohibition never worked out neither is this.
