Boris: 'You shouldn't abuse police officers'

London Mayor Boris Johnson says Andrew Mitchell's apology "underscores how wrong it is to abuse police officers". Mr Johnson also commented on the police decision not to arrest Mr Mitchell:

That's an operational matter.

In my book you shouldn't abuse police officers. The crucial thing for me is Andrew Mitchell has apologised.
