At a disciplinary hearing, Singh protested that he was only guilty of indiscriminate Facebook friending:
Sometimes when I logged on to my Facebook site there would be 20-odd friend requests and I just accepted them. Sometimes I didn't even check them. I realise now it might have been naïve in the job I do.
Nice try, officials said: They found photos on Facebook showing him hanging out with Tyrone Leadett, a drug-dealer Facebook friend (above, right). Their investigation also found that he'd phoned 7 of the 13 Facebook-friend criminals.
