Or was she right to be offended at being called fat and useless? DISCUSS PLEASE.

From Grimsby Telegraph.

A frustrated victim of crime who sent emails to the female officer assigned to his case branding her 'fatty' and 'useless' was cleared by a jury in just 40 minutes in a 'farcical' prosecution.

William Beswick branded the case a 'farce' and claimed that prosecuting him was a complete over-reaction and a waste of taxpayers' money - and that she should be more "resilient" as a police officer of 20 years' service.

The policewoman's indignant objections to the words were branded "nonsense" and she was told that surely she had regularly heard far worse language at football matches and on rowdy Saturday nights.

Mr Beswick, 50, of High Street, Barrow-upon-Humber, denied sending PC Julia Acaster emails which were grossly offensive between March 4 and 30.

He was cleared by a jury of nine men and three women at Grimsby Crown Court after barely 40 minutes of deliberations.

The speedy decision to reject the officer's complaint came as no surprise to anyone in court, especially as some of the jury had been seen grinning and trying to suppress smiles during the case.

He sent what the prosecution claimed were abusive and grossly offensive emails calling her a "fat fool" and a "useless ****" as well as making veiled threats.

In one message, he asked her: "Do you like being abused, fatty?"
Mr Lowe asked her whether she was really grossly offended by emails in which Mr Beswick used the f-word and the c-word and called her useless.

"You were grossly offended by them?" said Mr Lowe. "Being called f***ing useless grossly offended you, did it?"

PC Acaster replied: "Yes, it did."

Waste of taxpayers money if you ask me and yes as a cop she'll have heard far worse than that.

Am astounded that no-one has an opinion on this. Brexit really has taken over everyone's minds.
