Chris Garret was murdered in the line of duty in 2004. He was nominated for the Cross of Valour but denied it because the trial of his killer held up the application until the 2-yr time limit lapsed.

That such a callous and automatous application of the rules is even possible leaves me dumbstruck.

There is an online petition to correct this:

Please take a moment to sign.

Please do the right thing. First give this man his medal that is well deserved, second improve our judicial system when it comes to dealing with people who think they are above the law.

Politicians!
Some lecture 'ethics' to doctors, some deny heros a medal of valour.

What would we do without politicians?
