Brief outline: PC Graham Cogman has been sacked and
vilified for his beliefs and conscience. After receiving
pro-homosexual material via email in 1995, PC Cogman
sent his own giving his Biblical perspective and so
was banned from sending internal emails.
After more encouragement was given for staff to embrace
homosexuality, PC Cogman emailed colleagues with a link
to a website offering support to people who are concerned
about their sexuality and thus he was found guilty of
non-compliance with a lawful order over use of the police
computers and also failure to treat a colleague with
politeness and tolerance.
'Tolerance' is so often a one-way street in Britain.
I was so appalled at the treatment
of this police officer by his colleagues that I telephoned
Norfolk Constabulary for the email address of the Chief
Here are my comments to him...
Dear Chief Constable,
This email will also be published on my website
and I hope to hear your views which will be added to
I am contacting you about the sacking of PC Graham
Cogman, who you will be well aware of, and hopefully
offer some insight into the injustice done to your (ex-)
The people who promoted 'Gay History Month' (what did
this have to do with the police anyway?) and other events,
were allowed their say, but the man introducing colleagues
to his interest in helping those struggling with their
sexuality has been sacked.
That's not equality. Maybe this was the website
in question - "We respect the right of all individuals
to choose their own destiny. NARTH is a professional,
scientific organization that offers hope to those who
struggle with unwanted homosexuality."
Norfolk Police are therefore DISCRIMINATING against
people who have unwanted sexual desires and want help.
I understand the mentality. I know it must be upsetting
for some folk that there are people struggling with
their sexuality and seeking help to remove themselves
from the 'gay' clan.
It is a tribal thing, isn't it? PC Cogman was deemed
to have 'dissed' the tribe so had to be kicked about
by homosexuals and by others groomed to be intolerant
by diversity ‘training’.
Ironic, isn't it?
It seems that some people under your command have no
humanity when they would see somebody's career ruined
for this: for daring to favour his conscience above
base instincts. How guilt and hate-ridden must those
who complained feel to want a colleague sacked? What
are they doing working for the police?
Deputy Chief Constable Ian Learmonth is reported to
have said: "This officer's behaviour fell well below
what we expect of our people."
Unless there is some aspect of the story that remains
hidden, I would say that your Deputy could be prosecuted
Political correctness is ruining the police. The world's
finest have been so re-engineered by bad government
that they turn on their own. I don't mean the bent coppers
(no pun intended), who deserve to be severely dealt
with, but it seems to me that social engineering is
causing serious divisions in the police and society
as a whole on multiple issues. I would call it divide
There is no equality, just a hierarchy of ideologies.
The proof is everywhere and rarely more obvious than
in the police forces today.
I am also a Christian and also not 'homophobic'. Regardless
of how people viewed his motives, PC Cogman loved his
homosexual colleagues so much that he sacrificed his
livelihood for them.
To view his actions differently, I believe, is dishonest.
To try and score points for political correctness by
sacking and vilifying him is cruel and shameless.
I hope you will see this case beyond the politics.
Police officers should be capable and mature enough
to debate in a civilised way with their fellows and
not be scared of speaking about a particular thing in
case they are treated like criminals as I believe the
PC Cogman has been.
If police forces are to regain their trust with the
public, they must stop esteeming certain groups more
Do you propose that I and the millions of others who
share PC Cogman’s views should also be treated like
criminals if we actually say what we believe to be true?
And how many real criminals have failed to be apprehended
because of the man hours (or years) wasted on issues
It does not matter what colour, creed or sexual orientation
a criminal is. He (or she) is a criminal, period, and
the job of the police is to deal with the aspect of
criminal behaviour, not be the implementer of government
social engineering policies.
Not that long ago, homosexual behaviour was a criminal
offence, but after years of ‘equality’ and ‘celebrating
diversity,’ our society is more unequal and the only
diversity allowed is what the state deems permissible.
The police really should not be part of the process.
You should be valuing and upholding morality, not seeing
it as a negative attribute in your officers. No wonder
we read every day about cases of miscarriage of justice,
where the innocent are incarcerated and the criminals
snigger as they walk free, metaphorically sticking two
fingers up to you, me and the rest of society. I hope
you can see how ridiculous it has become.
Natural justice brought about by people of good standing
are what our police and judiciary require. I beg that
you change the direction of your force by reinstating
Graham Cogman and encouraging honour and integrity among
your staff by kicking out political correctness.
Thank you in advance for your comments.
