There appears to have been no reason for the actual comments to be included in the first report, and his watch Sergeant was right in not approving open comments that had no bearing on his arrest. Another case of individuality by a malcontent that wanted to make a big media splach, perhasps thinking it would give him some degree of peer approval. It seems to have backfired!
