Despite retiring from the police several years ago, my wife is still in the Job, as are many members of my family, so I can only start imagine just how angry and upset the husband, family and colleagues of PC Clare Bond must be feeling right now…
According to news reports on the BBC’s website, the ‘individual’ charged with wounding PC Bond with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, Gurajdeep Malhi, of Stafford, appeared in court during the week.
PC Bond suffered MULTIPLE leg fractures and a broken kneecap while responding to reports of a car crashing into a garage in Coton Fields, Stafford.
A second officer was also hit but has since been discharged from hospital.
Mr Malhi, of Charnley Road, was also charged with driving dangerously, driving while disqualified and driving without insurance.
He was remanded in custody to appear before Stafford Crown Court on 26 October.
Mr Malhi appeared jointly at the court with Lucy Maria Bullmore, 30, of Morton Road, Stafford, who was charged with driving a Range Rover Evoque dangerously and failing to provide a specimen for breath analysis.
Both defendants were not required to enter any pleas and spoke only to confirm their name, address, date of birth and nationality.
Ms Bullmore was granted conditional bail to appear at Stafford Crown Court on 29 October.
However, as PC Bond still lay in hospital, her husband shared an emotional and heart-felt post on social media aimed fairly and squarely at the cowards responsible for the vile attack on his beloved wife who is also a dotting grandmother.
“I know that she won’t thank me for this lovely photo, and I might even be criticised but I need everyone, even outside of my circle of facebook friends to know what that scumbag [allegedly] did to my wife who happens to be a new grandmother and mother to 4 amazing children.
“6 days in and she still has so many tubes and wires going in and out of her it makes me feel physically sick.
“Two major operations thus far, just because she was doing her job trying to protect the public in a role that she loves.
“She will get through this and everyone wants her home…
“I need her home as well….I am running out of clean clothes”.
Everyone here at Emergency Services News & Emergency Services Humour sends our heartfelt best wishes to PC Bond and her family.
What happened to PC Bond is an utter disgrace and boils our blood.
How cowardly and evil must someone be, to smash into a fellow human being with their vehicle?
The police would have responded to this incident, with a view of helping people who were reported as having been involved in a road traffic accident.
There are no words to describe the sort of individual responsible for the horrendous injuries which PC Bond has had inflicted upon her body.
It just goes to show the risks which police officers face on a DAILY basis.
Risks which are made by the men and women of the thin blue line, who, at the beginning of each shift, leave their loved ones at home never knowing if they are going to see them again.
We really hope that PC Bond makes a speedy recovery and that she gets the full support that she needs and so rightly deserves.
And we hope that, if convicted, then the individual(s) responsible for this sickening and despicable act is/are sent to prison for a very long time.
And by a ‘long time’ we do not mean 1, 2 or even 3 years.
We hope that any sentence reflects the true gravity of this vicious assault and the horrendous injuries which have been inflicted upon the body of PC Bond.
