London Police chief: Officers can’t babysit royals

Associated Press

LONDON (AP) — London’s Metropolitan Police chief says his officers cannot interfere in the private lives of the royal family, not even to prevent Prince Harry from going bare at a Las Vegas party.

Commission Bernard Hogan-Howe told a Parliamentary committee on Tuesday that his department was reviewing the role of Royal Protection officers in the incident, in which Harry was photographed naked.

However, Hogan-Howe told the panel: “Our role is to maintain the security of our protected individual. They have to lead a normal life and we have to strike a balance between intrusion into their life and keeping them safe.”

He added “there is a golden line that cannot be crossed, which is getting involved in the social lives of the principals.”

  1. Imagine 300 million people have to go through the humiliation of removing their
    Shoes every time they go through an airport all because of a trumped up incident
    That actually was detected an stopped by passengers. Theirs just no end to intrusions.

    I was an engineer and know what radio waves of the frequencies they are using
    And I always get a pat down instead of getting my DNA destroyed that’s a word of

  2. By the way I traveled to several other country’s and they never make you remove
    Your shoes no that’s reserved for Americans at home. If they got a budget issue
    And its between a teacher in say Chicago and this overdone bloated HMS/TSA
    I know who to pick.

Please let us know what your thinking.
