Two Bad Cops.

"THE careers of two policemen who lied in an attempt to frame a law student were in ruins last night. Community officers Neil Jones, 35, and Andrew MacRobert, 28, claimed William Reid and his friend were shouting and swearing in the street after a night out, and charged them with breach of the peace. Mr Reid, 22, was handcuffed and put in the back of a police car after his friend, Callum McCaig, 22, ran off in Bothwell, Lanarkshire.The two policemen later fabricated evidence which claimed Mr Reid had sworn at them and become aggressive in their patrol car in February 2006 – a claim he denied ... Yesterday, Sheriff Ray Small fined Jones £2,000 and MacRobert £1,250 as he told the pair they had "tarnished" the reputation of Strathclyde Police."
