My friend has an engineering degree and aspergers
He went to the police and told them that the mine may fail. The police did not do anything and the mine failed resulting in big financial losses for shareholders.
He also told the the government mine inspector but nothing was done to assess the structural...
Well - you're deluding description doesn't actually make sense as what would someone you've declared Is how would it be possible for time and effort granted would be get a engineering degree however, I'll go along with your fictional scenerio - what do you expect from the police - someone goes into the police station to tell them of a mine they're not actially aware of and have little powers to deal with - what did you expect the officers to - arrest the fence
As for the mine supervisor he would need help and you have to ask :was anyone hurt there
In future if you believe a work site is dangerous - feel free to contact work cover or if employees are on sight and you think the safety issues and staff may be in extreme danger then you have the option of dialling emergency services
--- also agree with most of the other answers as well.
Your friend is a figment of your imagination, and all 400 versions of this question are ABSURD.
If they had donuts, then they did their job
You would think that someone with an "engineering" degree would have a clue where NOT to report an issue. The problem is YOU not knowing enough to report to the proper authorities.
The soundness of mines are not within police jurisdiction, so no fault. In the example fault would lie with the government authorities responsible for mines, they were clearly notified but did nothing so....dereliction of duty/ negligence.
The handicap of the reporting professional would have nothing to do with it.
The police did nothing wrong. They didn't do anything right either. They did nothing. But that is not misconduct or illegal. The mine failed. The fault is with the mine.
See my exchange of letters with Min of Interior of #Spain on police conduct in #Catalonia on 1 October
#FinsUp #RapidReplay RT KSTiLLS: Holding ppl accountable for how they conduct themselves interacting w/ police, & …
Whoever is advising #thearchers SWs on police procedure should know that Inspectors only conduct interviews in TV & radio fiction. 3166040 - 95.719844357977
Conduct to shame every police officer in #Spain. And a woman in whom the whole of that great nation should take pride.
And anyway, it's not entirely necessary. If you're a cop, you can get 'most
everything you need from a pirate board, just by using an inside informant.
Plenty of vigilantes--well, CONCERNED CITIZENS--will inform police the moment
they see a pirate board hit their area (and will tell the police all about it,
in such technical detail, actually, that you kinda wish they'd shut up).
They will happily supply police with extensive downloads or printouts.
It's IMPOSSIBLE to keep this fluid electronic information out of the
hands of police.
"Captain Turner was fully advised as to the means which in the view of
the Admiralty were best calculated to avert the perils he was likely to
encounter, and in considering the question whether he is to blame for
the catastrophe in which his voyage ended I have to bear this
circumstance in mind. It is certain that in some respects Captain Turner
did not follow the advice given to him. It may be (though I seriously
doubt it) that had he done so his ship would have reached Liverpool in
safety. But the question remains: Was his conduct the conduct of a
negligent or of an incompetent man? On this question I have sought the
guidance of my assessors, who have rendered me invaluable assistance,
and the conclusion at which I have arrived is that blame ought not to be
imputed to the Captain. The advice given to him, although meant for his
most serious and careful consideration, was not intended to deprive him
of the right to exercise his skilled judgment in the difficult questions
that might arise from time to time in the navigation of his ship. His
omission to follow the advice in all respects cannot fairly be
attributed either to negligence or incompetence.
