Met officer Jonathon Cobban and ex-PC Joel Borders were sentenced to prison for exchanging offensive WhatsApp messages with Sarah Everard’s killer.

A Metropolitan Police officer and his former colleague were jailed for 12 weeks after sharing grossly offensive messages in a WhatsApp group with Sarah Everard’s killer – and then released on bail pending an appeal.

In September, Constable Jonathon Cobban, 35, and ex-PC Joel Borders, 45, were found guilty of the charges.

Earlier this year, the pair and Wayne Couzens were discovered to be members of a chat group called “Bottle and Stoppers.”

Couzens is currently serving a life sentence for the kidnapping, rape, and murder of Ms. Everard, 33, in March of last year, while he was a police officer.

Cobban and Borders were discovered in the group to have exchanged messages about tasering children and people with disabilities, as well as referring to Hounslow as a “Somali s*******” in 2019.

Borders wrote on April 5, of that year, “I can’t wait to get on guns so I can shoot some c*** in the face!”

Cobban replied: “Me too. I’d like to taser a cat and a dog to see which one reacts the best. I believe the cat will p***** off more and the dog will s***. I’d like to put this theory to the test. Children are the same way. You little f******, zap zap.”

PC William Neville, 34, who was also a member of the WhatsApp chat, was acquitted of two counts of sending grossly offensive messages in September.

According to the police watchdog, all six officers in the group with Couzens are accused of violating police standards of professional behavior.
