To be clear I think that it was a crap outcome, but let's be clear it was the police at fault.
If the unconscious suspect was so drunk asking him to take a breathtest when he woke up would surely have proved positive,so yes I agree policing standards aren't what they should be by a long shot and for more than one reason.
It would have, unquestionably.
