A suspected shoplifter has died after glass bottles police said he was concealing smashed during an altercation with a security guard

Mind you, the real moron seems to be Detective Chief Inspector Jeremy Carter, whose statement could very easily be interpreted as saying that the Security Guard is to be blamed for the fact that the thief was carrying the concealed glass bottles that killed him.

Maybe the DCI thinks that the guard should have carried out a risk assessment before tackling the thief, ascertaining inter alia that he - the thief - was not carrying any hazardous objects likely to cause injury if tackled.

Let's hope that common sense prevails quickly.
