As everyone knows, at this stage, the news police code of conduct doesn't mention abusing your power to rape women. Despite the direct line of causation between police officers using their power to rape women and their being a police code of conduct in the first place.
They didn't have to stop police officers raping women; they didn't even have to care that police officers were raping women; they just had to look like they cared about police officers raping women. And they failed.
But wait, they have an explanation:
A spokesman for police headquarters said: "Although the code does not specifically refer to inappropriate sexual behaviour, the code does cover such activity."People AND Property, I'm guessing they included both, because there are a fair number of police officers who aren't sure whether young women are property or people.
It contained a clear reference to "respect for people and property".
