We covered the case of the man, now named as 46 year old Steven Peers, arrested for wearing a toy police officers helmet and pig mask last week. Well, common sense has prevailed and Mr Peers will not be prosecuted for any offences relating to his action.

There are now more details of Mr Peers motivation. Apparently, his purpose is to perform ‘comical parodies’ of the Greater Manchester Police. Whilst wearing his faux police outfit he calls himself ‘Officer 666’ which he does to highlight ‘violence, corruption and bad behaviour’ carried out be Manchester police.

The Police haven’t stated why they won’t be prosecuting Mr Peers – whether it was felt that there was not sufficient evidence to get a conviction or there was no public interest in prosecuting Mr Peers. We would hazard a guess that it was both. At least after this was publicised and they looked ridiculous in the press …
