Police Corruption

Police corruption happens. This is a matter of fact. If police chiefs and politicians care it can be reduced. When bent coppers are frightened of  honest ones it is as good as it is ever going to get. A lot of these links point to American sources. Can this number of reports all be wrong? I have not read all of them but I seriously doubt it.

For something on the Metropolitan Police see under. Corruption starts at the top with the current boss, Bernard Hogan-Howe; he is a Racist, an anti-English Racist but none the less a Racist. He colludes in crime when Pakistanis are the perpetrators.



Police Drove Ray Mills To Suicide
An antiques gun dealer shot himself over fears he could die in prison after he was charged with owning banned firearms, an inquest heard.

Ray Mills, of Pinnocks Avenue, Gravesend, took his own life in woodland off Cobhambury Road, Cobham, before he was about to go on one last shoot. He was 68. He was described as “anxious” and “depressed” in the days leading up to his death over fears he could spend the rest of his life behind bars........

Investigating officer DS Richard Alilngham said he was satisfied Mr Mills intended to take his own life after ruling out third-party involvement.
The police harassed Ray for years. Using fraudulent claims to justify search warrants was just one technique. Threatening other dealers who dealt with him was another. Now they have achieved what they wanted. Evil rules England.


Police Screwed Mick Shepherd
Police captured Mick Shepherd, a legal gun dealer and kept him in prison for ten months. This was two weeks after he passed totally clean on a police inspection. He beat all raps; all 900 guns were legal. They did it as a publicity stunt to make it look as though they were stopping the illegal arms trade. They are malicious liars.
PS Operation Trident was set up to deal with black criminals. They are failures trying to justify their existence.


Rampart Scandal
Happened in Los Angeles. It was routine stuff; beating up prisoners, Malicious prosecution, Misconduct In Public Office, Perverting the course of justice, stealing narcotics, selling them, which came to light circa 1998 when a bent copper babbled. The Rodney King nausea came before, in 1991


Police Corruption In England

Police Corruption Gets Blatant
Revealed: the scale of sexual abuse by police officers
Exclusive: Guardian investigation finds sexual predators in police are abusing their power to target victims of crime

Sexual predators in the police are abusing their power to target victims of crime they are supposed to be helping, as well as fellow officers and female staff, the Guardian can reveal......

The situation raises questions about the efficacy of the police complaints system [ which is deeply corrupt - Editor ], the police's internal whistleblowing procedures, the vetting of officers and a failure to monitor disciplinary offences.

Police officers have been convicted or disciplined for a range of offences from rape and sexual assault to misconduct in public office relating to inappropriate sexual behaviour with vulnerable women they have met on duty. Others are awaiting trial for alleged offences, though many are never charged with a criminal offence and are dealt with via internal disciplinary procedures.

In the past four years, there were 56 [ known ] cases involving police officers and a handful of community support officers who either were found to have abused their position to rape, sexually assault or harass women and young people or were investigated over such allegations.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) and the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) are so concerned they are carrying out a rare joint inquiry into the scale of the problem, which will be published in September, the Guardian can reveal.........

David Ainsworth, deputy chief constable of Wiltshire police, killed himself last year, an inquest heard this month, during an inquiry into his behaviour. He is one of two officers accused of sexual misconduct to have taken their own lives over the past four years.

In one of the worst cases in the past four years, Trevor Gray, a detective sergeant with Nottinghamshire police, broke into the home of a woman he met on a date and raped her while her young child slept in the house. Gray was jailed for eight years in May for rape, attempted rape and sexual assault.
The Graun is being surprised for some reason.


Police Conduct Regulations
Tell us what they are not allowed to do. You might conclude that they are not allowed to take bribes from News Of The World or anyone else. The reality is not the same as the theory.


Bent Coppers Author Sued By Crooked Cop
A journalist was cleared of libelling a former police officer whom he suggested might be guilty of corruption at the Court of Appeal this morning. In a victory that strengthens the media’s right to report matters in the public interest, the appeal judges ruled that Graeme McLagan had acted responsibly when he researched and wrote his book “Bent Coppers” [ One Amazon review says he is a police puppet - Ed. ] A former senior [  junior in fact - Ed. ] police officer, Michael Charman, claimed that the book libelled him by suggesting that there were “cogent grounds” of suspecting him of having been involved in corruption. But the judges ruled unanimously that Mr. McLagan had taken steps to verify the story and that as a result of his honesty, his expertise on the subject, his careful research and painstaking evaluation of the material, his book was protected by defence of “public interest”.......... The author expressed surprise that the Police Federation had supported Mr. Charman, a “man required to resign by the Metropolitan Police for ‘discreditable conduct.” [ Like £50,000 in bribes - Editor ]
The Police Federation backed the pig knowing that the man was kicked out. They are corrupt too.


Maxine de Brunner
Her face fits no matter what. 'Misleading' Princes Charles and William is the word used. This stops short of saying that she lied in her teeth in order to pervert the course of justice but that is where the euphemism points.

Brunner was sacked left to pursue other options after she was caught again. This time was abusing power; sending police with guns to her son's school to amuse them - see Private Eye 1426/13. It seems that an employment tribunal decided that she was a liar.


Ali Dizaei
He was loud mouthed, pushy, a thief, a bully who squawked about racism for any reason or none and now he is in prison. He got off very lightly but then he is an ethnic.


Bent Coppers - Survey of Police Corruption
The title is clear enough and soundly based. Has Mr. Morton been sued for Libel? Possibly. Did the copper get away with it? I doubt it.


Crown Prosecution Service Perverted The Course Of Justice
The CPS colluded with the police in this one. They are just as political and just as bent.


Detective Chief Inspector Gets £10,000 Bribe And Five Years In Prison
Justice gets done sometimes Davies got five years.


Muslim Corruption
Having a very public reputation for corruption is suggestive, very suggestive. It is also very justified. The Al Yamamah Job is an example. Actually there were Brits taking bungs too. When there are that many billions involved a few million are neither here nor there. Then of course there is Ali Dizaei, a bent copper and a racist thug to boot.


Operation Russia
A few bent coppers go to prison making the world a better place. There are another 27,000 in the Met alone.


Police Brutality
Beating up prisoners is fun, healthy exercise, good for morale. What is the point of having power if you don't abuse it? It is a form of corruption.


Police Corruption And Freemasonry
Chris retired from the Met, the retirement cheque cleared then he decided that he could afford to tell the truth so tell the truth he did. It is ugly and wide ranging.


Police Corruption In London Is Normal
Police officers involved in a "serious, gratuitous and prolonged" attack on a British Muslim man that led the Metropolitan police to pay £60,000 in damages this week have been accused of dozens of previous assaults against black or Asian men........... After six years of denials [ what is sometimes called lying in their teeth - Editor ] from Scotland Yard, lawyers.... were forced to admit in the high court that Ahmad had been the victim of sustained and gratuitous violence during his arrest and agreed to pay £60,000 in damages...... According to documents submitted to the court, four of the officers who carried out the raid on Ahmad's home had 60 allegations of assault against them - of which at least 37 were made by black or Asian men. One of the officers had 26 separate allegations of assault against him - 17 against black or Asian men...... When lawyers for Ahmad asked for details of these allegations it emerged that the police had "lost" several large mail sacks detailing at least 30 of the complaints.
The Met is deeply corrupt and destroying evidence in order to pervert the course of justice is routine. The investigation system is set up to use secret courts and other techniques which make it easy for them to get away with murder.
PS The Grauniad is keen to emphasize that blacks are the victims and cover up when Englishmen are being attacked. They just as corrupt as the filth but they have a different agenda. They are some of Lenin's Useful Idiots. Their aim is Cultural Genocide because they hate England.


Police Corruption Is Political And Racist
“It is a deplorable situation when a British patriot can be barred from the police while that organization has over 1000 serving officers who have criminal convictions, and advisors who are identified Islamic extremist terrorists with links to Al-Qaeda,”.......... Mr. Darby pointed out that one of the Metropolitan Police’s chief advisers on combating Islamic extremism, Mohamed Ali Harrath, has been the subject of an Interpol red notice (its highest state of alert) since 1992 because of terrorist activities in Tunisia, where he helped found the Tunisian Islamic Front (FIT).........  Harrath has been convicted in absentia of a string of criminal and terrorism-related offences in Tunisia and has been sentenced to 56 years in jail. At a special immigration appeals commission, an MI5 witness stated that Mr. Harrath’s FIT had carried out terrorist activities in France. The Tunisian government have also accused Mr. Harrath of meeting Osama bin Laden in 1991 in an attempt to secure the financial backing of al Qaeda for his FIT party.

In July 2007 it was revealed that eight police officers were suspected of having links to extremist Islamic groups, including Al Qaeda. Some of these people were believed to have attended terrorist training camps in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
The BNP tells the truth. It has to because it can't afford libel aggravation and there are vicious liars out there who will use any excuse or none to do them down.


Police Taking Bribes In The Met
A great number of people started to wonder why art gallery owners and satirical magazine editors were being arrested when there seemed to be any amount of hardcore pornography available in West End’s Soho. As a recent victim himself of the Dirty Squad, John Lennon lent his support to Oz and released Do The Oz to help their cause. When the Oz obscenity case went to appeal - the defendants famously appeared wearing long wigs - it was alleged by Geoffrey Robertson, one of the defence counsels, that the lord chief justice, Lord Widgery, sent his clerk to Soho to buy the hardest porn he could find. Compared to the material with which he returned, Oz magazine paled in comparison and the original convictions were quickly quashed.

The Conservative Home Secretary, Reginald Maudling, asked Detective Chief Inspector George Fenwick, at the time in charge of the Obscene Publications Squad, exactly why the porn barons in Soho seemed to be operating with somewhere close to impunity. Fenwick explained to Maudling;
        “It is an unfortunate fact of life that pornography has existed for centuries and it is unlikely that it can ever be  stamped out.”
Maudling was shocked with this explanation, or what was rather a lame excuse, and he quickly initiated a major corruption inquiry. The Government and the judiciary were slowly coming to the conclusion that there was more than the odd bad apple in the Metropolitan police.

In the same year as Mark’s appointment the Sunday People exposed a connection between James Humphreys (who openly ran two strip clubs and was one of the biggest operators of pornographic bookshops in Soho) and Commander Kenneth Drury. They had both enjoyed a luxurious two week holiday in Cyprus accompanied by their wives, all paid for, of course, by the Soho pornographer. Drury was hopelessly compromised and with concocted a story that he was in Cyprus looking for the train robber Ronnie Biggs

Humphreys quickly realised the danger of appearing as a police informant and announced that Drury had set up the whole thing. After a police raid at his house a diary of Humphrey’s was found in a wall safe and it unbelievably detailed payments to seventeen different policemen. The policeman included senior policemen such as Bill Moody - Head of the Obscene Publications Squad but also, incredibly, his superior Commander ‘Wally’ Virgo - a man who had overall control of nine squads including the Flying, Drugs and the Porn Squad.

It was estimated that James Humphreys and his fellow porn barons were paying an extraordinary £100,000 a year to corrupt policemen to enable them to continue selling porn unimpeded. Indeed it came to light that Humphreys had been so worried that Drury’s expensive lifestyle would give everything away, he had supplied him with expensive slimming drugs and a rowing machine to keep his weight down.

Commander Kenneth Drury - the most senior policeman ever to be convicted

The delicately balanced house of cards the corrupt policemen had built, soon came tumbling down. Initially there were just the usual discrete [ sic ] early retirements and resignations but eventually there were two major corruption trials and George Fenwick, Bill Moody, Wally Virgo and Kenneth Drury were all given between ten and fourteen years in prison in 1977. Mr. Justice Mars Jones after Fenwick’s trial said:
               “Thank goodness the Obscene Publications Squad had gone. I fear the damage you have done may be with us for a long time.”
After the second trial Mars-Jones said it revealed:
              “corruption on a scale which beggars description.”
Is it any different now? I doubt it. #Our friends at the Yard goes over the same ground and makes the same accusations.
PS Felix Dennis tells us that Widgy, the LJC had a secret meeting with Dennis. True? About porn?

Sir Robert Mark ex Wiki
In 1972, Sir Robert Mark became Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police. That year, the annual total of armed robberies in the Metropolitan district was 380 - partly because the culture was rife with bribe-taking, sharing in the proceeds of crime and "verballing", or fabricating evidence against suspects. Sir Robert felt compelled to remind his detectives which side of the law they were supposed to be on, he told them in his inaugural address: "A good police force, is one that catches more criminals than it employs."

At the centre of Sir Robert's focus was Criminal Investigation Department, and its pinnacle the Flying Squad - Ken Drury, commander of the Flying Squad and one of his inspectors, Alistair Ingram, later went to prison for corruption.

Sir Robert pushed such investigation - of names such as Mehmet Arif, George Davis, Ronnie Knight, Freddie Foreman, Micky McAvoy - out to the suburban regions, who needed to employ new tactics to catch the bigger criminals they were now faced with. 
Corruption in the Met is deep seated and very sincere. It will happen while bent coppers frighten any straight ones; not vice versa. Robert Mark was the last Commissioner who showed serious indications of wanting to sort the bent ones. He got rid of 300 and that was just in the CID.


Elmore Davies
Copper tries it on again. Copper comes unstuck. Justice gets done for once.

Detective Chief Inspector Gets £10,000 Bribe And Five Years In Prison
A former star of TV's Gladiators and a senior policeman have been found guilty of corruption and perverting the course of justice. Mike Ahearne, 'Warrior' in the ITV show, and Merseyside detective Elmore Davies - both from Oxton, Wirral - were convicted after a 24-day trial at Nottingham Crown Court. Along with a third man, Tony Bray, 50, of Moreton, Wirral, they were found guilty of plotting to scupper the prosecution of Philip Glennon Junior, who was later convicted of firearms offences..............

Davies, a policeman for 34 years, accepted a £10,000 bribe to try to sabotage the Glennon prosecution.
Davies was an experienced liar, a hardened liar, an experienced perjurer. He also knew how to get away with it. But he got sloppy or someone babbled. The judge was fairly honest - ten years would have been better.


Corrupt policeman caught on camera - saved
Davies again.


Curtis Warren
Seriously big time crook - got information from Davies
In the late 1980s, he came to a working agreement with Middlesbrough trafficker Brian Charrington. In September 1991, using Charrington's personal yacht, the pair sailed to France on then-legal British visitor passports. They then travelled to Venezuela on British 10-year passports, and arranged a deal with the Cali cartel to smuggle cocaine in steel boxes, concealed in lead ingots.[1 ]

On arrival in the UK, HM Customs and Excise cut open one ingot, but found nothing. Having let the shipment pass, they were later informed by Dutch police that the drugs were held in the steel boxes; by which time Charrington, Warren and the shipment were untraceable. However, a second shipment of 907 kilograms (2,000 lb) using the same method was already on its way from South America.[1]

When the shipment landed in the UK in early 1992, Charrington, Warren and twenty-six others were placed under arrest, in a prosecution brought by HM Customs and Excise. However, in preliminary court procedures, it was revealed by police that Charrington was a police informant for the North-East Regional Crime Squad. HM Customs officials went forward with their prosecution, despite protests from his police "handlers" Harry Knaggs and Ian Weedon. In Newcastle Crown Court, it was alleged that Warren was so well informed, that he knew the length of the largest drill bit owned by HM Customs, and therefore the size/depth of the required ingots.[8] Eventually, through Tory MP Tim Devlin, a meeting was arranged in which Customs was ordered to drop charges against Charrington on 28 January 1993. The case was dropped, with all accused including Warren acquitted of all charges.[1]

It is alleged that on release, Warren purposefully walked past the HM Customs agents, saying: "I'm off to spend my £87 million from the first shipment and you can't touch me."[1] Several months later, Knaggs was spotted by HM Customs officials driving a £70,000 BMW, previously registered to Charrington.
Perhaps he should have gone into banking. Then he would have gotten away with it. Notice that Customs wanted to prosecute but the filth objected so they were bullied into letting him walk.

Rotherham Police Told Pakistanis Were Raping English Girls In 2006 [ 29 August 2015 ]
They carried on colluding with Pakistanis or was it local Labour councillors? Police Corruption as normal. They are still getting away with it. One of the best police force that money can buy was 'Sir' Bernard Hogan-Howe.


Thames Valley Police Ignore Rape By Pakistani Perverts [ 22 November 2015 ]
Thames Valley Police are the tireless crime-fighters responsible for protecting the people of Oxfordshire in southern England. But their resources are limited, so they have to make sure they respond only to genuine crimes, not to trivial complaints. This, for example, is how they treat a trivial complaint:

One girl, referred to as Girl A for legal reasons, felt brave enough to face her abusers in court, while others gave evidence from behind a curtain. She wept as she described how the gang threatened to burn her younger brother alive unless she had sex with them. She was repeatedly raped and sold for sex between 2004 and 2007 when she was aged 12 to 15.

When she went to police [in Oxford], no action was taken. She claimed that they threatened to arrest her instead. “They threatened on a number of occasions to arrest me for wasting police time for turning up at a police station in a state after running away,” she said. “Any self-respecting police officer would have seen something was wrong. If you pick up a child who is covered in cigarette burns and bruises, something is fundamentally wrong. Adults should be doing their jobs, it’s not down to a child.” (Oxford sex gang: girls as young as 11 “forced into prostitution”, The Daily Telegraph, 14th May 2013)

Child rape? Child prostitution? Not a problem to Thames Valley Police when non-White males were responsible. Here, by contrast, is a serious crime that prompted them to leap into action:

A 43-year-old woman has been arrested over a racially abusive message posted on a beauty salon’s Facebook page. The woman has been named locally as April Major, the owner of the at-home beauty business in Bicester, Oxfordshire. The post, made following the terrorist attacks in Paris, said the salon is ‘no longer taking bookings from anyone from the Islamic faith, whether you are UK granted with passport or not.’

Thames Valley Police arrested the woman yesterday after receiving a number of complaints about the message. A Thames Valley Police spokeswoman said: ‘We have arrested a 43-year-old woman in Bicester today after a number of complaints about a racially abusive post on social media. The woman was arrested under section 19 of the Public Order Act which relates to the display of written material which is threatening, abusive or insulting with the intention of stirring up racial hatred, and for producing malicious communications. We take all such complaints seriously and will investigate. If you suspect that racially aggravated crimes are being committed please report them to Thames Valley Police on 101.’ (Police arrest woman for ‘racially abusive’ Facebook post banning Muslims from beauty salon because it is ‘time to put my country first’, The Daily Mail, 16th November 2015)

Thames Valley Police allowed Muslim men to rape and prostitute White girls for at least six years without lifting a finger to interfere. But they acted immediately when a White woman said she didn’t want Muslim customers for her private business.

They also lied about the nature of her message. Islam isn’t a race, so April Major wasn’t being “racially abusive.” And so what if she had been? She should be free to serve whomever she wishes in her own business. As it is, she’s arrested for trying to exercise a traditional British freedom. That’s the authoritarian aspect of the perverted liberalism now ruling the modern West.
You don't have to believe that English police are deeply corrupt, that they are anti-English Racists but you should. It shouldn't be true but it is. They pander to corrupt politicians i.e. Her Majesty's Government. The same is true about 'Sir' Bernard Hogan-Howe who runs the Metropolitan Police. He refuses to prosecute 'Lord' Nazir Ahmed, Baron Ahmed of Rotherham because he is a Pakistani.
PS Mr Langdon also tells us about the Zionist crazies, the Puppet Masters controlling our politicians and their very different attitude to Ethnic Fouling in Israel.




Military Police Try Fitting Up Innocent Officer [ July 2006 ]
Prisoner drowns trying to escape, men do the right things but evidence gets 'lost', liars get used. Corruption? They got it.


FBI Arrests Dozens Of Bent Police [ 7 October 2010 ]
FBI agents have arrested dozens of Puerto Rican police officers accused of aiding drug traffickers, in one of the worst corruption cases involving a force already tarnished by allegations of brutality, discrimination and incompetence. In pre-dawn raids yesterday, nearly 1,000 federal agents apprehended about 130 people, including more than 80 law enforcement officers accused of providing security to drug dealers on a US territory where police are struggling to curb spiralling crime and rampant drug smuggling.......

The suspects include a dozen prison guards, two soldiers in the US army, three national guard soldiers and civilians. The indictments allege law enforcement officers provided security for drug deals in exchange for payments ranging from $500 (£315) to $4,500, Holder said. FBI agents conducted 125 undercover drug transactions between July 2008 and September 2010, he said.
The FBI has its very own track record of corruption and murder including the Ruby Ridge Massacre [ two murders ], the Waco Massacre [ dozens of murders ] followed by their own in-house investigations, destruction of evidence and clean bills of health.


Metropolitan Police Chief Took A £12 Thousand Bung [ 17 July 2011 ]
Britain's top police officer accepted a free five-week stay at a top health spa where News of the World hacking suspect Neil Wallis was a PR consultant. Sir Paul Stephenson was today facing a battle to cling onto his job as it was revealed he accepted the £12,000 freebie from Champneys where the ex-executive editor worked. The Metropolitan Police Commissioner was already under pressure after it emerged that he hired Mr. Wallis as a PR consultant for the force.

Scotland Yard denied that it was the 60-year-old ex-journalist who had arranged the stay for the top officer as he recovered from surgery. Stephen Purdue the managing director laid on the stay at the resort to provide him with the accommodation. But the disclosure will raise further questions about Sir Paul's judgment, days after he faced a dressing down from London Mayor Boris Johnson over the PR contract.
Why was it offered? Nobody ever offers me that kind of thing. In fact nobody offers me anything because I can't do any favours in return. The last chief of the Met who gave us any real reason to believe he wasn't bent as a nine bob note was Robert Mark who finished in 1977. That leaves plenty of time for corruption to blossom again in London. In fact Sir Robert got rid of 478 men from the CID by giving the uniformed lot immunity to prosecution. Sadly he only got 50 prosecutions. It can be done. It needs to keep on being done. Sir Robert was an outsider so nobody in the Met could blackmail him. Where does that leave Stephenson? As another chancer who hasn't been caught before.
PS Why did the Daily Mail publish this one just as the pressure is building up on the media? Could it be warning to rogues in politics?


Sir Robert Mark Said:-
"I had served in provincial forces for 30 years, and though I had known wrongdoing, I had never experienced institutionalised wrongdoing, blindness, arrogance and prejudice on anything like the scale accepted as routine in the Met," he recalled of his arrival. However, he had the backing of the Home Office, a large proportion of the uniformed branch and enough senior officers to ensure there was no overt rebellion against the activities of the anti-corruption branch. Those against whom there was insufficient evidence for a charge were offered the chance to leave early, and many did, to the applause of the honest majority. The boil was lanced. Mark was knighted in 1973.
I have my doubts about the proposition that there is an honest majority or even an honest minority.


700 Corrupt Senior Islamic Police To Be Sacked [ 17 July 2011 ]
In a rare show of unity, Egypt's largest political Islamist movement, the Muslim Brotherhood, will join a vast array of liberal, leftist and secular political forces, including youth representatives from this year's anti-Mubarak uprising. They will demand that police officers and former regime officials are finally held accountable and that the army's grip over the justice system comes to an end.............

In another apparent attempt to appease the public ahead of the rally, interim interior minister Mansour al-Essawy has promised to purge up to 700 corrupt senior officers from the police force as part of the largest reshuffle in the interior ministry's history. But five months on from the protests that led to Mubarak's fall and left almost a thousand dead, only a single officer has been convicted of wrongdoing – and he is yet to be put behind bars.
To be fair they are police criminals in Egypt not England. It may even be that some are Christian. This is a follow up to Secret Report Brands Muslim Police Ten Times More Corrupt [ 10 June 2006 ] which the Guardian hopes we have forgotten about.


Metropolitan Police Commissioner Wanted For Questioning Regarding Concealing Evidence In Order To Pervert The Course Of Justice [ 24 July 2011 ]
TWO of Britain’s leading former police officers are wanted for questioning over allegations that they withheld crucial evidence about the car crash which killed Princess Diana. A French judge wants to ask ex-Yard chief Lord Condon and Sir David Veness why they failed to disclose the existence of a note in which she predicted her assassination. They could face international arrest warrants as suspects should they refuse to attend interviews in Paris, sources close to the investigation indicated last night.

The note, taken by Diana’s lawyer Lord Mishcon, was handed to the officers a few months after the 1997 Paris tunnel crash which also claimed the lives of Diana’s boyfriend Dodi Fayed, son of tycoon Mohamed Al Fayed, and the pair’s chauffeur Henri Paul.

The highly-respected lawyer’s document records the line: “Efforts would be made if not to get rid of her (be it by some accident in her car, such as a pre-prepared brake failure or whatever)...at least to see that she was so injured or damaged as to be declared unbalanced.”
Condon is looking at a maximum of five years and a chance to learn French.


Police Chief Keeps Quiet About Bent Coppers Who Took Bribes [ 25 July 2011 ]
Sir Hugh Orde, the president of the Association of Chief Police Officers, has lambasted Rupert Murdoch, saying the chairman of News Corporation had shown a complete denial of responsibility for what had gone on in his company.

He contrasted Murdoch's behaviour with the leadership shown by Sir Paul Stephenson, the Metropolitan police commissioner who quit last week over his indirect links with former News of the World editors. Orde is tipped as a possible replacement for Stephenson, and it is the second time in a few days that he has attacked the irresponsibility of News Corps.
Orde fingers Murdoch but does not tell us whether Stephenson, the previous Met commissioner scarpered before he could get done under the Police Conduct Regulations. Perhaps Orde is making the moves to take over as the head of the Met.
PS Condon, a previous Metropolitan police commissioner has just been fingered for concealing evidence - see Metropolitan Police Commissioner Wanted For Questioning Regarding Concealing Evidence In Order To Pervert The Course Of Justice. Should you trust a copper? Never.
PPS Orde said this to Andrew Marr, liar, oaf, fornicator, BBC propaganda front man and general purpose scum bag.


Black Policeman Playing Race Card Repeatedly Is An Idle, Vicious Liar [ 1 October 2011 ]
A police officer who repeatedly accused colleagues of racism has been rebuked by a judge for his ‘unjustified’ claims. PC Peter Vince-Lindsay brought 14 allegations of discrimination against British Transport Police, including claiming that, because he was black, officers failed to back him up quickly enough when he was hit with snowballs.............. At the centre of the case was  an incident outside Caledonian Road railway station in north London last winter when the officer, who was based in nearby Highbury, saw two youths throwing snowballs at passengers.

After radioing for support from colleagues, he detained the pair and threatened to ‘break their legs’ [ Was he charged with threatening behaviour? He got away it with because he was black - Editor ] if they did not stop, the tribunal was told. PC Vince-Lindsay claimed it took two patrols ten minutes to arrive – and complained the delay was because his sergeant was racist. But records showed his colleagues arrived within three minutes and would have had little trouble finding him at the small station. There was no record of any disciplinary action being taken over PC Vince-Lindsay’s threat to the children...... PC Vince-Lindsay’s black colleague agreed no racism was involved, and the men were able to eat their meal ten minutes later. In addition, the officer’s litany of complaints included being removed from a training course because of alleged racial discrimination. But the judge ruled that far from facing prejudice, PC Vince-Lindsay was ‘extended a considerable degree of latitude’ by officers despite his actions.....

Passing judgement and ordering the officer to pay £2,500 costs, tribunal chairman Gordon Etherington said: ‘We have decided the claimant should have known this case was entirely misconceived and not a case that should have been brought before us.’
Give them an inch and they take a mile. Her Majesty's Government imports them with malice aforethought. Her Allegedly Loyal Opposition ditto. One lot want cheap labour. The others want fraudulent votes.


Mouthy Copper Nicked For Drug Dealing [ 1 October 2011 ]
The French police force has been shaken by what could become its biggest corruption scandal in decades after Lyon's deputy police chief, nicknamed "Supercop" for his fight against drugs, was arrested on suspicion of colluding with international drugs barons. Michel Neyret, 55, the bouffant-haired and charismatic Lyon detective, was arrested at home along with his wife and is being held in custody. He is suspected of having compensated informants with batches of confiscated drugs; police claim that Nyret then worked with the criminals to resell the products. He is being questioned about corruption, international drugs trafficking and money-laundering.
They can so they do. Simple, isn't it? He is a scruffy rogue like Blair, another one without a tie.

This follows on from the Rape case against the rutting chimpanzee Kahn a Jew who was running for president of France or whatever versus Sarkozy, the Jew encumbering the post at the minute who got Fingered In The Election Campaign


Anti-Corruption Police Perverted The Course Of Justice [ 2 October 2011 ]
Scotland Yard’s anti-corruption unit is being investigated over claims that three of its officers withheld vital evidence in the trial of six other policemen charged over a racist attack on a group of youths. Details of the investigation emerged at a secret hearing in London last week when a judge was told that the trio, who all work for the Met’s department that investigates police corruption, had blocked the release of the CCTV footage – and that this had helped lead to the six being acquitted.......

The case stems from a trial in 2009 when six members of Scotland Yard’s Territorial Support Group were cleared by a jury at Kingston Crown Court. PC Mark Jones faced two charges of racially aggravated common assault while five of his colleagues were accused of covering it up. PC Jones was one of six officers who spotted a group of youths allegedly mouthing obscenities at them in Central London. Three teenagers were allegedly taken into the officers’ van and subjected to taunts and violence.

PC Amechi Onwugbonu, the van driver, who is black, gave evidence against PC Jones. But the CCTV footage shown to the jury was inconsistent with PC Onwugbonu’s evidence and the six were acquitted, later bringing race discrimination claims against the Met. 
What a police man misses most when he goes out is not the companionship or even the drinking and driving. It is the pleasure of committing perjury.


Policeman Gets A Twelvemonth For Perjury  [ 16 October 2011 ]
Police officer and barman jailed after lying under oath to escape driving ban
A 'distinguished' police officer was jailed for 12 months today after he lied under oath to escape a driving ban. Greater Manchester Pc Myles Hughes, 35, from Macclesfield, Cheshire, persuaded his childhood friend and barman at his local pub to lie for him after he was caught driving over the limit. Hughes was spared a disqualification in November last year when he told magistrates that he did not know he was over the drink drive limit because Paul Doyle, also 35, from Macclesfield, had given him the wrong drinks. Doyle backed up the story claiming he gave Hughes four pints of 'lager top' instead of lager shandy in a bid to 'cheer his friend up'. Today Judge Elgan Edwards, sitting at Liverpool Crown Court, jailed Hughes and Doyle for 12 months and four months respectively......

The court also heard that Hughes, who has since resigned from the police, even confided in two police colleagues about his plan to lie under oath.
The fact that Hughes babbled to other police proves that he thought they were just as corrupt. He must have been unpopular, in the wrong Freemasons lodge or whatever.


Police Criminals Get Away With Criminal Damage,  Perverting The Course Of Justice, Thieving Etc. [ 4 November 2011 ]
Enfield crime squad officers to keep job despite inquiry findings

Six Met officers found guilty of smashing up suspect's car at secret disciplinary hearing following 16-month corruption inquiry The six officers using excessive force to stop a car Six members of a Metropolitan police crime squad under investigation in a major anti-corruption inquiry are to keep their jobs after being found guilty at a secret disciplinary hearing of smashing up a suspect's car with a baseball bat and a pickaxe handle..........

Three superintendents, who were borough commanders of the area during the period the squad was active, were interviewed as witnesses and legal sources said the managers had been "generally aware" of what was going on. But none have been reprimanded and all three have since been promoted to chief officer rank.

It can be revealed that after a seven-day Metropolitan police misconduct hearing, held behind closed doors, the first disciplinary hearing in the case has found the six officers guilty of discreditable conduct for using excessive force to stop a stolen car......... The sound of Tracey Chapman's track Fast Car can be heard as the officers arrest the suspect. They denied doctoring the video to add the music afterwards.
They are thugs. They are liars. They were allowed to get away with it by other police who have their own past doings to consider. It is business as normal - see Police Corruption for more and better details. Sir Robert Mark is the boss of the Met who gave serious reason to believe he cared about police crime. That was in 1972.


Policeman Sacked For Screwing Politician's Wife [ 23 November 2011 ]
A police officer who served as Alan Johnson's bodyguard was sacked by Scotland Yard after an investigation into an alleged affair with the former home secretary's wife. Paul Rice was dismissed without notice at the end of a misconduct hearing as senior police chiefs criticized him for damaging the reputation of the Metropolitan police. Johnson resigned as shadow chancellor in January as details of the affair became public, sparking a reshuffle of the Labour party's frontbench less than four months after he was appointed.
It makes a change from screwing the rest of us.


Police Corruption In Florida Is Gross [ 7 December 2011 ]
SPECIAL REPORT: How Florida's problem officers remain on the job
Part 2: Despite ‘moral character violations' — allegations of violence, drugs, theft and forcible sex — Florida officers keep their badges Thousands of Florida officers remain on the job despite arrests or evidence implicating them in crimes that could have landed them in prison, a Herald-Tribune investigation has found.

Even those officers with multiple offenses have been given chance after chance through a disciplinary system that has been reshaped in their favor by the state's politically influential police unions. As a result, officers around Florida carry personnel files that are anything but heroic.

Corrections officer Kurt Stout, already dogged by allegations he groped and had sex with prisoners, was arrested on allegations he raped two teenage girls. Nick Viaggio capped a string of violent outbursts at the Ocala Police Department by attacking his girlfriend in a crowded nightclub until bouncers dragged him away. Palm Beach County deputy Craig Knowles-Hiller, under investigation for sleeping with a 14-year old, had to explain why the girl's DNA was found on one of his sex toys.......

Serious incidents of officer misconduct erode public trust in a profession granted an uncommon degree of power and authority in a free society. Just this year, Florida officers have garnered unwelcome notoriety for offenses including extortion, drug trafficking and attempted murder.
A policeman should be competent enough to commit murder and to lie his way out of it. More at Herald Tribune Creative

Police Fit Lad Up, Police Keep Their Jobs [ 17 January 2012 ]
Police plied boy, 17, with cider before he admitted crimes he could not have committed (AND they keep their jobs!)
A teenage boy was given strong cider by police before being questioned over a series of burglaries, a disciplinary hearing was told. Sean Wall, 17, was taken to a police station and given alcohol before being quizzed over 11 burglaries - which he admitted while under the influence. But the plan backfired when it emerged Sean was already behind bars at the time of five of the break-ins.....

The officers were suspended and the Independent Police Complaints Commission was called in to carry out a full investigation. But the two Cardiff-based detectives have kept their jobs after a gross misconduct hearing held by South Wales Police behind closed doors.
Getting lads to admit to crimes they did not commit improves the statistics. It is SOP [ standard operating procedure ] It may also be:-
Malfeasance in office
Misconduct In Public Office
Perverting the course of justice
It may also involve:-
Compounding a felony
Misprision of felony &
Obstruction of justice
You do not have to believe that the investigation was another perversion of the course of justice. Perhaps it just looks like it.


Police Perverted The Course Of Justice [ 16 July 2012 ] 
On 25th April 2012 the London Evening Standard reported that a 31 year old female police officer with Southwark’s Sapphire sex crimes investigation unit had falsified a crime report and fabricated the testimony of a victim. The IPCC found the Constable guilty of gross misconduct and dismissed her from the police service.  [ They let her off lightly, they may also have perverted the course of justice. Ditto for Misconduct In Public Office  - Editor ] The investigation revealed a string of claims that officers of the Southwark unit breached rules on rape cases, and had written off allegations as “no crime” incidents.

On 28th April 2012 the Daily Telegraph reported a similar case, where Greater Manchester police detective Dominic Griffiths faked a rape forensic report, failed to send samples for testing, lied to superiors and falsely claimed an exhibit had been lost.
Disgraceful? Yes! Surprising? No! Perjury is a standard working tool in the police. They can so they do.


Assistant Chief Constable Charged With Perverting The Course Of Justice [ 16 July 2012 ]
A police chief and his wife were today charged with perverting the course of justice after she allegedly accepted speeding penalty points on his behalf. Acting Deputy Chief Constable of Leicestershire Police, Gordon Fraser, 48, was alleged to have been behind the wheel of a car when it was registered as going over the speed limit in Scotland. His wife Teresa, 42, is accused of accepting the penalty points on his behalf and claiming she was behind the wheel....

'A criminal complaint was made alleging that Mrs. Fraser had accepted responsibility for a speeding offence allegedly committed by Mr. Fraser on 29 September 2011 in Strathclyde,' she said.

'Having carefully considered all of the available evidence, we concluded that there is sufficient evidence to bring criminal charges against Mr. and Mrs. Fraser and therefore, authorized Hertfordshire Constabulary to charge them with doing acts tending to pervert the course of justice. 'The essence of the charge is that Mr. Fraser, having allegedly committed a speeding offence, falsely informed the investigating authorities that Mrs. Fraser had been the driver of the vehicle in question, and she falsely accepted responsibility for the speeding offence.

'The decision to charge was taken in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors.' Fraser joined the Leicestershire force in June 2009, and was made temporary deputy chief constable six months later.

During his time at West Midlands police, Fraser worked in various roles including Head of Intelligence, Head of Crime and Head of Business and Service Improvement.

He received a national award for the dismantling of serious and organized crime networks and has experience of managing covert operations.
It takes eighteen months to make a police man, which is to say a liar, a hardened liar who will commit perjury at the drop of a hat. Fraser came unstuck outside his own area where he had no influence.


Policewoman Gets Eighteen Months For Fraud [ 31 July 2012 ]
Jailed: Ex-policewoman claimed her daughter had cancer so she could have A YEAR OFF to take her to show jumping events

When police officer Rachel Hewitt told bosses her teenage daughter was desperately ill with cancer they did everything they could to help. She was given compassionate leave, favourable shifts and time off sick – because of depression – as her daughter was battling for her life, a court was told. It went on for two years but, incredibly, it was all a sham. Hewitt, 39, invented the cancer story so she could go to show jumping events with her two daughters, who were both fit and well.

Yesterday she was jailed for 18 months for abusing the trust of her police employers and the colleagues who donated cash to help her supposedly sick child.
It takes eighteen months to make a copper which is to say a trained liar, one who commits perjury as a matter of course.


Policeman Killed After Murdering His Wife [ 31 July 2012 ]
A former police detective jailed for life for murdering his partner in front of their two young children was found hanged in his cell today. Peter Foster, 36, who was found guilty of murder last month was discovered by staff at Lewes Prison in the early hours of this morning.

Foster stabbed Detective Constable Heather Cooper, 33, before dumping her body in Blackdown Woods, near Lurgashall, West Sussex, in October last year.
He looks guilty before you go any further into the matter. One wonders why any jury ever believed his evidence. They are all trained liars but some look reasonable. Was it suicide or was he sorted out by someone else? It matters not. There is a bit less evil in the world.


Black Policeman Arrested For Stealing Thousands From Dead Men [ 27 August 2012 ]
A police officer cousin of footballer Darren Bent has been arrested on suspicion of stealing from dead victims of crime. PC Richard Bent, 28, who serves with the Metropolitan Police, was held as detectives investigated a series of high value thefts, including money and jewellery worth thousands of pounds. Police are also said to be investigating the theft of goods from the officer's central London police station in Westminster. Fellow officers discovered the expensive items during a raid on his £350,000 flat........

The £35,000-a-year policeman, who lives in Wandsworth, South West London, is the son of Darren's aunt Sandra.
Dress them up as policemen but they are still black. Of course being in the Met is a major opportunity to commit crime. He will have learnt how to get away with crime from English filth. Being a liar is the basic skill. Committing perjury with straight face comes with practice. They have plenty.


Bent Copper Walks Away With His Pension [ 5 October 2012]
'Shameful' chief constable becomes first to be axed in 35 years for using 'undue influence' to get a job for former police chairman's daughter
Sean Price of Cleveland Police found guilty of gross misconduct
He used 'undue influence' to get job for colleague's daughter and tried to persuade another staff member to 'lie for him'
Former officer continues to deny any wrongdoing, seeks legal advice Still faces investigation into alleged silence over officer wife's arrest for drunk and disorderly Disgraced officer still entitled to pension for 30-year career.............

A top police officer branded 'shameful' by a police watchdog has become the first chief constable to be sacked in 35 years.

Sean Price was dismissed after a disciplinary hearing concluded that he misled the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) by lying and by trying to get a member of staff to lie for him............

The last officer of his rank to be fired on the charge was Stanley Parr, who lost his job as Lancashire Constabulary’s Chief Constable in 1977, while former North Yorkshire chief constable Grahame Maxwell left the force, but avoided the sack, after admitting to gross misconduct in 2011.
Top cop is bent - just like the rest. Resigning is the standard technique for beating discipline raps. Is too easy. After they get taken back on driving instructors or whatever.


Police Corruption Coming To Light More Often [ 23 December 2012 ]
Record numbers of police officers are being investigated for corruption, a report into police integrity has found.

Anti-corruption units across the country are wrestling with a workload of 245 cases every month – a rise of 62 per cent from the year before. Most of the investigations – eight out of ten – involve officers accused of illegally disclosing information to criminals and third parties. The remainder relate to other serious allegations of corruption, including bribery.......

One of the most high profile cases was Ali Dizaei, a [ Third World crook & a ] commander dismissed after he was jailed for Misconduct In A Public Office and perverting the course of justice.

According to the Inspectorate, 67 officers under investigation have left the police service through dismissal, retirement  or resignation. Some 45 cases have been referred to external bodies for further investigation and 643 officers have been given warnings or advice.  Just over 700 of the 2,207 investigations that took place between September 2011 and May this year were still live....

Sean Price, chief constable of Cleveland, was sacked in October for gross misconduct [ see Bent Copper Walks Away With His Pension ] and is on bail in a separate criminal investigation for corruption.

In the same month, Sir Norman Bettison, chief constable of West Yorkshire, had to resign over his alleged role, which he denies, in concocting false information to smear the victims of the Hillsborough football disaster. He remains under investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission...........

They featured ‘offensive language, comments on police procedure, negativity towards work and extreme opinions on government’. 

This year, a Nottinghamshire officer was disciplined after posting obscene racist abuse on Facebook about the quality of staff at a call centre in India.
Police Corruption is normal, routine, SOP [ standard operating procedure ]. They know that they can hang together or hang separately. When you have had dealings you know they are insolent bullies who lie at the drop of a hat. Perjury is their standard working tool. Dizaei is a mouthy chancer who worked the Race relations racket for everything it was worth, part of the Asian Mafia, also the president of the National Black Police Association, an inherently Racist mob. Since he was put in prison it has not been so gobby. Bettison claims that he did not lie in his teeth. Believe him if you want. I do not.
PS Police can evade disciplinary proceedings by resigning. They will then be given jobs by their crooked little mates as driving instructors or whatever. That was how it was done with a thug called Harwood. They gave him the opportunity to carry out the G20 Massacre. The last Met boss who was serious about corruption was Sir Robert Mark back in 1972. It has gone back to normal since then. He told them that "A good police force, is one that catches more criminals than it employs."


Corrupt Policewoman Convicted Eventually [ 11 January 2013 ]
A senior counter-terrorism officer was facing jail last night after being convicted of offering to sell inside information about the phone-hacking investigation to the News of the World. Detective Chief Inspector April Casburn rang the newspaper days after Scotland Yard began a review of evidence that its journalists had illegally intercepted mobile phone messages. Casburn, 53, who worked for the Met’s SO15 counter-terrorism command, is the first person convicted as part of Operation Elveden, the multi-million pound investigation into whether journalists illegally paid public officials for information. So far, 53 people have been arrested. The £65,000-a-year officer was found guilty of Misconduct In Public Office at the end of a three-day trial......... After the verdict, Detective Chief Superintendent Gordon Briggs said: ‘It’s a great disappointment that a DCI in the counter-terror command should have abused her position in this way.......

Casburn had rung the News of the World news desk and revealed details about Operation Varec, the police investigation into phone hacking at the now defunct Sunday paper.

She told journalist Tim Wood that six people were under suspicion including former editor Andy Coulson, at that time David Cameron’s communications chief. She said detectives were under pressure from Lord [John] Prescott and the operation was a waste of resources. Mr. Wood emailed two colleagues to say a ‘senior police woman’ wanted to ‘sell inside information’.

This email was handed to the police by the paper’s publisher, News International, and Casburn was arrested. The News of the World did not publish any information and did not pay Casburn.
A bent copper gets sorted. Strange but true. Presumably the journo she phoned talked because he thought he was being fitted up. People have been arrested in this one but very few were police. They look after their own. Notice also that there is not a hint  about Murdoch getting justice even though he owned the firm that bribed the police. Little people are subject to the law. Real people are too important. Just ask your favourite Director of Public Prosecutions next time you have a pint with him. Police do come unstuck occasionally but only if their faces don't fit.
PS The last boss of the Met who showed real sign of sorting out Police Corruption was Sir Robert Mark but that was back in 1972. Things have gone back to normal since.
PPS One plus point is that this trial lasted a mere three days. So many, too many get dragged out by corrupt lawyers. It is a way of stealing taxpayers' money via legal aid.


Chief Constable Says Police Are Bent [ 24 January 2013 ]
Chief constable admits police officers across UK 'are using criminals to buy steroids and abuse their power for sexual gratification'

Police forces across the country will investigate officers for dealing with criminals to buy steroids and abusing their power for sex, a chief constable said today. Mike Cunningham said the top risk factors for corruption of police officers are inappropriate relationships -  including to buy bodybuilding drugs, abuse of power for sexual gratification and misuse of information systems.............

The Chief Constable of Staffordshire was speaking as the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) published a report on how to tackle corruption......... 'There is good evidence of officers getting way out of their depth with serious criminals who they are beholden to.' Abuse of power for sex is also occurring across forces in England and Wales....

Ethics committees could also be set up to monitor each force, independently of the police and crime
Police corruption is normal, routine, deep seated. They are trained liars, experienced liars, hardened liars. What they miss when they go out is not the companionship or drinking and driving; it is the pleasure of committing perjury and getting away with it. Another committee is seriously irrelevant.

It is interesting but not directly relevant that the Director of Public Prosecutions managed to pervert the course of justice by letting Cyril Smith, a politician get away with being a Paedophile. The DPP gets the job because politicians want him.


Police Pervert Course Of Justice To Make Statistics Look Good [ 28 February 2013 ]
Rape victims were pressured into withdrawing their allegations to help police meet crime targets, a damning report revealed yesterday. Detectives from Scotland Yard’s specialist rape unit persuaded the women to say the attacks they endured were ‘consensual sex’. In one case, a detective sergeant pressured a woman to drop a rape claim against retired security guard Jean Say, 63, who then went on to murder his two children in their beds with a carving knife..........

Scotland Yard failed to hold gross misconduct proceedings against three officers accused of failings in the investigation into serial sex offender Kirk Reid, it emerged today....... The IPCC recommended that a superintendent and two inspectors should face gross misconduct proceedings.
Police Corruption is deep seated, wide ranging and utterly sincere. It takes eighteen months to make a policeman, which is to say an expert liar, a hardened liar who commits perjury at the drop of a hat. The fact that various crooks were not investigated proves that corruption goes to the top. Promotion is proof of guilt.

Murderer                                                 Rapist                                                           Police thug who got 16 months.


Senior Police Perverted The Course Of Justice  [ 20 March 2013 ]
Hundreds of police intelligence files on suspected sex assaults and criminal activity by celebrities, politicians and VIPs were kept so secret that detectives investigating alleged offences could not see them.

Information on high-profile suspects was marked “restricted” or “secret” and effectively hidden in police databases to which only a handful of officers had access. The approach contributed to offenders like Jimmy Savile and Cyril Smith MP escaping justice for decades.

Senior police say that secrecy was tight because of concerns that information would be leaked to newspapers by corrupt officer in return for cash.
Of course the Met is deeply corrupt; it always has been. It was very noticeable that they were able to arrest journos from the News Of The World for paying bribes to the police but the criminals taking the money were conspicuous by their absence. If things are classified RESTRICTED it means everyone has access apart from the tea boy.


Bent Copper Gets 7 Years For Sexual Abuses  [ 20 March 2013 ]
Police officers who abuse their power for sexual advantage will be investigated and punished, the complaints watchdog warned as a community support officer was jailed for seven years. Peter Bunyan, 40, a PCSO with Devon and Cornwall Police was sentenced after being convicted of eight offences of wilful misconduct in a public office. He faced allegations of criminal conduct relating to affairs with women, sending explicit text messages and accessing police computer records
Bunyan was only a half policeman; that is why they only patrol in pairs but he is just as bent as the rest.


Policeman Stole £50 Million [ 7 September 2013 ]
Former police officer led gang of five who raked in £50million in England's biggest ever mortgage fraud with 1,000 fake applications
A former police officer led a gang of five - including his wife - in the biggest mortgage fraud ever seen in England and Wales, it emerged tonight.

The scheme involved some mortgages against properties that did not exist, as well as the use of false property valuations and fraudulent paperwork claiming to show rent incomes and deposits.

Antony Lowry-Huws, 65, from Kinmel Bay, north Wales - the 'ringleader' - was jailed for seven years for leading the £50million fraud that involved more than 1,000 bogus mortgage applications.

His wife Susan Lowry-Huws, 60, also from Kinmel Bay, was given 12 months suspended for two years and 300 hours’ community service. And his business partner Sheila Whalley, from Llanfair Talhaiarn, north Wales, was jailed for six years, the Crown Prosecution Service said.

Solicitor Nicholas Jones, 54, of Leeswood, Flintshire, and surveyor Frank Darlington, 62, of Barnoldswick, Lancashire, were each given four years.
It takes eighteen months to make a policeman, which is to say a hardened liar who commits perjury at the drop of a hat.


Police Paedophile Convicted Of Eight Rapes [ 2 November 2013 ]
Former police officer guilty of a string of sex crimes including EIGHT rapes... and now his colleagues are appealing for more victims to come forward A former police officer has been convicted of a string of sex crimes - including eight rapes and two serious sexual offences against a child. Wayne Scott, who was previously employed by Cleveland Police, was found guilty of the rape and attempted rape of a woman today after a five-day trial. The 37-year-old had already admitted raping a different woman seven times over a number of years, a court heard............

'Wayne Scott is a sexual predator who has been a disgrace to the office of constable and deserves to be behind bars......

Scott had already confessed to two common assaults, one sexual assault and two counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual touching, the court heard. He had also referred to himself as 'sexed up” during a police interview and had made advances to some of his former colleagues.
Another policeman, another proven criminal. There are plenty more like him who have gotten away with it so far.

"A police officer who became an internet hit when he smashed a pensioner’s car window with his baton has been awarded £440,000 in compensation after claiming he was ridiculed out of his job. PC Mike Baillon, 47, walked out saying that he had become a laughing stock among colleagues. Footage of him hitting the disabled man’s vehicle 15 times was leaked on YouTube, where it became a global sensation."
Poor chap couldn't take it from nasty rough policeman? Awful, innit? How many time did this thug beat up prisoners then lie in court after? Notice that the other thugs went Scot free.
PS His MP, David Davis was in the SAS so he knows about suffering but swallowed the sob story. Is Davis a fool?

Alleging that Glocks are too big for their hands is an excuse for bad shooting. Someone has been telling lies. Someone is ignorant or stupid enough to believe them.

Plebgate Police Accused Of Lying  [ 23 February 2014 ]

"FIVE Metropolitan police officers are to face secret “trials”, starting this week, amid claims they colluded to bring down the cabinet minister Andrew Mitchell..........

The Metropolitan police and its commissioner, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, have consistently maintained there was no conspiracy. But in an email to Mitchell last week, the IPCC, the independent police watchdog, said there was evidence of collusion."
Is there anyone left who believes a policeman? Hogan alleges that there was no conspiracy. The IPCC says there is. Who is lying? Hogan is all there when it come alleging Racism if Englishmen are being accused. With Pakistanis like Ahmed he ignores the evidence.

Metropolitan Police Corruption Is Gross Says Guardian  [ 11 March 2014 ]
Actually it is not bad; it is worse. They got away with murder all too often. They are arrogant bullies, who like it that way. When they fornicate with policewomen on duty, they do not even bother to dispose of the French letters; they are left for the cleaners. What they miss when they go out is not the companionship or being able to drink and drive, it is the pleasure of committing Perjury and walking free.

That is just how many the Home Office admit to. The reality is far worse. It takes eighteen months to make a policeman, which is to say a  hardened liar who uses Perjury as a matter of routine.
At least 2,000 officers have been suspected of tipping off criminals, stealing and fabricating evidence, says a Home Office report.

The Home Office Select Committee will launch an investigation next month into police corruption after claims officers also used their power to get money and sex...........

Among the corrupt practices listed by the 2003 report are dealing and using drugs, fraud and domestic violence as well using 'sexist, racist and homophobic behaviour.'
The fact that this report comes from 2003 shows that they are not serious. They know, they don't care. Corrupt police and corrupt officials in Rotherham allowed Pakistani Perverts to rape more than 1400 English girls. Not one has been charged. The Metropolitan police chief refuses to investigate Racism when it is a gobby little Pakistani chancer called Ahmed. Corruption starts at the top and works down; the system advocated by Antonio Gramsci, the leading intellectual of the communist party in Italy.


Police Charged With Killing Lunatic [ 17 December 2014 ]
The custody sergeant and two others have been charged with Manslaughter & Misconduct In Public Office after a prisoner died. They will claim that he was mad, turned nasty, died out of malice or whatever.  The whole point of having a custody sergeant is to protect prisoners from police thugs, to stop them being kicked to death.
PS Code C of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 is a code of practice for prisoner handling. They are available on demand to anyone wants to see them, including prisoners. Try asking for them and see just how evasive the police get - then make a formal complaint.


Police Protect Pakistani Perverts [ 17 December 2014 ]
Police Corruption
again? Who would have thought? Me for starters. Of course they do take their direction from politicians, which means corrupt politicians, who are Racists, anti-English Racists but Racists none the less.

Civil orders have been made against the 10 – wwho can now finally be named as Mohammed Anjam, Omar Ahmed, Naseem Khan, Mohammed Javed, Shah Alam, Sajid Hussain, Rahman Aziz, Imran Uddin, Mansur Ahmed and Sarfraz Riaz – in a bid to curtail their sexual grooming activities. Riaz is currently serving a prison sentence for an unrelated sexual assault and has a total of 14 criminal convictions, including burglary, racially aggravated assault and drugs, the court heard. It is disappointing that the learned Judge did not put the police in prison for their Contempt of court.

Three perpetrators.


Policeman Perverted The Course Of Justice To Avoid £60 Fine [ 15 December 2014 ]
Another policeman, another hardened liar. How many people did he put in prison by Perjury? As many as he felt like. It is just too easy for police to Pervert The Course Of Justice. Recall the lengths police went to with the G20 Massacre; lying to their victim's family, using a bent medic for the post mortem et cetera. It was only video on the Internet that gave us a degree of justice. This crook got off with three months.


Police Corruption Is A Growth Industry With Hundreds Of Known Perpetrators  [ 31 January 2015 ]
It is often fornication but there is plenty of drug dealing too. When a policeman is out on patrol with a policewoman what are they going to do? Have fun perhaps. They don't even bother to hide the French letters after using them. Then there was that Secret Report Branding Muslim Police Ten Times More Corrupt.


Racist Police Harass Englishmen While Pandering To Pakistani Criminals [ 25 February 2015 ]
Police corruption rears its ugly head again. These thugs conspired to Pervert The Course Of Justice for the benefit of Islamics inciting murder after they were exposed by Channel 4 in Undercover Mosque. Learn about Resistance to Interrogation and your right to silence then use it.


Metropolitan Police Protected Paedophile Perverts In Fourteen Cases Of MP & Police Crime [ 17 March 2015 ]
Over 35 years, officers are said to have protected ‘untouchable’ figures by shutting down inquiries that reached the heart of government.

The 14 alleged paedophilia cover-ups were referred to watchdogs by the Metropolitan Police Service itself yesterday. It threatens to be the biggest investigation into police corruption since the 1970s.

Hailed as a ‘momentous milestone’ by one MP, the probe could lead to five former Met chiefs being interviewed. But campaigners are angry that the Met will remain in charge of the investigation.......

The complex web of allegations was uncovered by detectives probing claims of historical sex abuse first raised by Labour MP Tom Watson in October 2012..........

Officers are also accused of releasing paedophile MP Cyril Smith without charge after he was caught in an undercover operation at a sex party involving teenage boys.

Police are also accused of failing to end sex parties at the now notorious Dolphin Square complex, in Pimlico, central London, following the intervention of ‘prominent people’. It is claimed that members of a wealthy and powerful elite believed they were ‘untouchable’ after police were warned off shutting down the sordid activities.....

Unbelievably, two undercover officers are themselves suspected of sexually abusing a boy during a raid at the Elm Guest House. The IPCC is still considering two further cases, including the shadowy murder of eight-year-old Vishal Mehrotra in July 1981......

According to BBC’s Newsnight, Smith was seized at a house in Streatham. But within hours of being taken to a police station he was released, with officers being ordered to hand over all their evidence – including notebooks and video footage [ in order to Pervert The Course Of Justice - Editor ]

They were then warned to keep quiet about the investigation into the MP or face [ Malicious] prosecution under the Official Secrets Act.........

Former Scotland Yard detective Clive Driscoll told Newsnight he thought the claims were ‘credible’. Mr. Driscoll, who investigated claims of child abuse in Lambeth [ see Lambeth Police Raped And Tortured Children In Police Cells To Profit From The Child Sex Trade ] in the 1980s and 1990s and was the officer who convicted the killers of Stephen Lawrence, said: ‘I have looked at them as I probably would have done as a police officer and I have to say on the balance of probability they look very credible.
Now we know how Edward Heath got away with being a Paedophile. Being a Marxist helped of course. Corruption in the Met starts at the top and works down. 'Sir' Bernard Hogan-Howe is very anti-
Racist when Englishmen are accused but refuses to prosecute 'Lord' Ahmed, a greasy little Pakistani chancer who is blatantly Racist. Then there was 'Lord' Janner who walked because he is a Jew. This particular group of exposes may be the result of the 2014 Child Sexual Abuse Inquiry
PS We are all supposed to be forgetting the 1,400 victims of the Rotherham rapists.


Police Pursue Paedophile Perverts - After A Fashion [ 21 March 2015 ]
Prosecutions of online paedophiles may need to be streamlined as police struggle to cope with tens of thousands of cases, a senior officer has said.

Keith Bristow, director general of the National Crime Agency (NCA), said the authorities needed to “think very carefully” about the current demands placed on officers to secure a conviction. [ This contrasts with government demands to ignore perversion - Editor ]........

It came as the NCA revealed that more than 260 suspects - including teachers, civil servants and police staff - have been charged since the beginning of an operation targeting people accessing child abuse images online......

The NCA said there have been 745 arrests, 264 charges, 16 cautions and 518 children "safeguarded" under the operation so far. Operation Notarise used secret software which allows investigators to track the movement of illegal images across "peer-to-peer" internet networks, which paedophiles had previously regarded as a "secure" way of sharing material to feed their illegal proclivities.....

But Yvette Cooper MP, the shadow home secretary, said the “tiny” number of charges suggested “online child abuse is just not being given the focus, time and resource needed”......

“We have warned Theresa May that we risk sleep walking towards our next child abuse scandal unless online abuse is made a priority for the NCA. Her failure to properly address this puts more children at risk.”
It seems that the police are perfectly capable of investigating crime when they want. They also ignore it when that is what Her Majesty's Government wants. That is how Cyril Smith & 'Lord' Ahmed got away with various crimes. 'Sir' Bernard Hogan-Howe could explain why e.g. Ahmed is allowed to be a Racist.
PS Yvette Cooper, the Labour shadow home secretary got into Parliament as Greville Janner was promoted to the Lords by Labour after being was accused on oath of being a Paedophile pervert.


Undercover Police Shows The Truth  [ 4 April 2015 ]
Idle, corrupt, inefficient, overpaid, AWOL, watching hardcore pornography, ignoring rape victims. That is just what Channel 4 says about them. Then there is Perjury & Perverting The Course Of Justice. You can see just how they ignored Rape when they couldn't be bothered.
PS The spy they used, an ex-policewoman has swallowed the Feminism propaganda.


Police Might Investigate Corrupt Pakistani[ 2 May 2015 ]
They couldn't or wouldn't do it because Lutfur Rahman, the mayor of Tower Hamlets is a Pakistani. It took honest folk doing a private prosecution to beat his fraud. The Met has a lot of practice at corruption; Racism too but always anti-English Racism.


Three Thousand Police Being Investigated For Brutality[ 2 May 2015 ]
Over 3,000 police officers are being investigated for alleged assault, while Black and Asian people are alarmingly more likely than white people to complain about police aggression, a Freedom of Information request has revealed.

With only two per cent being suspended, most of the police officers under investigation for violence against members of the public are still on the beat. Campaigners said the figures exposed a culture of brutality and racism in the way some officers deal with ethnic minorities.
Police Brutality happens. It can be gross. It can be blatant. That is why police perjury happens. But a lot of these complaints are from Third World chancers working the Racism racket. Believe whichever bunch of criminals you please.


Policeman Gets Three Years For Sexual Abuse [ 2 May 2015 ]
But then he is not a Pakistani Pervert.


Police Sabotaged Paedophile Politician Crime Investigation [ 25 July 2015 ]
Former police inspector Clive Driscoll was investigating a minister in Tony Blair's government suspected of being linked to a paedophile ring in 1998 when he was moved off of the case............. First, he revealed that detectives working on Operation Trawler, an investigation into a paedophile ring suspected of operating in the London borough’s children’s homes, were focusing their inquiries on 12 potential abusers.
Why do these stories start then fade away - unless the perpetrators are dead? Because The Establishment is deeply & sincerely corrupt is the obvious answer.
PS This is a book advert. Policemen are, pretty much by definition expert liars.


Policeman Sacked For Lying And Fornication [ 6 August 2015 ]
A senior firearms officer was sacked from his force after being attacked by a love rival and lying to his bosses about his injuries. Temporary Chief Inspector Lee Rukin suffered a fractured eye socket and cheekbone as well as having several teeth damaged when he had his "face smashed in" on Tuesday, May 19 this year.

Now he has appeared before a misconduct hearing to face charges of breaching Cleveland Police’s guidelines of honesty and integrity, and discreditable conduct. The force confirmed on Thursday that he had been sacked with immediate effect following the hearing.
A policeman lies. News? No! Getting caught? That really is different. How many men did he put in prison by Perjury?


Policeman On Trial For Stealing £55 Thousand [ 26 August 2015 ]
A former protection officer for Tony Blair allegedly swindled £55,000 in benefits to fund gym memberships, cruises and a private school education for his children, a court has heard. Vaughan Dodds, a former officer with Durham Police, allegedly blew the money on a 14-night Canary Island cruise, a £4,000 trip to Orlando and a two-week holiday to Egypt.........

Prosecutors say the 45-year-old funded his extravagant lifestyle by making false claims on behalf of both he and his wife in an alleged four-year scam, the Newcastle Chronicle reports. At the time, he was said to have had £180,000 in his bank.
Another policeman, another liar, another thief.


Lecherous Policewoman Sacked For Fornication With Villain [ 29 September 2015 ]
She is alleged to have had an 'exemplary record', which means never been caught before. The crook has 89 previous so trying to get him straight was a waste of time.


Policewoman Cheated An Old Fool Out Of £100 Thousand [ 27 October 2015 ]
A police officer has been sacked after allegedly seducing an elderly man whose son had been killed by an axe-murderer in order to gain a slice of his fortune. Pc Clare Stretton, then 34, was appointed as a family liaison officer to Charles Foulkes, 82, after his son's murder. But his family accused her of flaunting herself in low-cut tops and mini-skirts before extracting £100,000 from him over ten years.

Mr Foulkes - a previously frugal man - was said to have taken her away on trips and given her gifts and money.

His three daughters complained about the constable's behaviour to West Mercia Police in December 2001, five months after she was appointed as family liaison officer............ The family made several further complaints over the next few years but claimed they were warned by one police sergeant not to pursue it further.

They eventually sued West Mercia Police, claiming their human rights were breached by the force’s failure to stop the officer's "inappropriate" behavior........

But police watchdogs said she should face a misconduct hearing after the daughters appealed and won a payout from the force at the High Court. Stretton, now 48, was sacked for misconduct.
The woman would probably claim that she did not prostitute herself for the money. The police protected her until a court intervened. Corruption again? The old man was a twerp. The relatives might be more than just mercenary.


Englishman Arrested For Joining Foreign Army While Pakistani Crime Is Ignored [ 27 November 2015 ]
Our wonderful police enforce the law, in this case the Foreign Enlistment Act 1870,, when they want but ignore it when they don't. The  South Yorkshire Police allowed Pakistani Perverts to rape 1,400 girls in Rotherham alone. They are still getting away with it in Doncaster & the rest of South Yorkshire. The fact is that Corrupt police pander to corrupt politicians. Of course the BBC colludes in the situation - see e.g. BBC Accused Of Sanitising Coverage Of Rotherham Child Abuse By Pakistanis.


Police Woman Is A Thief [ 5 December 2015 ]
A police inspector who tried to take medical retirement on the grounds she could not drive for longer than 15 minutes was caught driving a motorhome around Europe, a misconduct panel has heard. Zoe Hallam, 48, was injured in a car crash in November 2011 and told her bosses at Nottinghamshire Police she was incapable of returning to work. However she was then caught behind the wheel of a camper van around France and Jersey, the gross misconduct hearing was told. .......

The hearing, which is expected to last five days, continues.
Her own decided to stitch her up. She didn't pander to the right people. She is also idle, preferring life as a lady of leisure, just like the average council house dosser. Notice that it is going to take five days to try her. That is how lawyers get rich. Will she get done for fraud? Don't hold your breath waiting. The law is only a weapon against us, not them.


Policeman Harassing Drink Drivers Caught Three Times Over The Limit [ 28 February 2016 ]
A police officer who spearheaded a crackdown on drink drivers has been sacked after he was caught three times over the limit by his own colleagues. PC Chris Blount of West Midlands Police's collision investigation unit was dismissed after a tribunal yesterday.

He was pulled up in front of the Force's disciplinary board after he was caught 'struggling to control' his Vauxhall Mokka while drunk at 2.30am on November 6............ PC Mount was pulled over and his speech was said to be slurred. He was also unsteady on his fleet and officers could smell alcohol. He gave a reading of 101mg per 100ml in a breathalyser - more than three times the legal limit of 30mg per 100ml of breath.
He looks like an arrogant thug. Perhaps that is why his little mates didn't let him get away with it.


Rotherham Police Refuse To Testify Against Pakistani Pervert [ 19 January 2016 ]
Rotherham trial: Officers ‘who witnessed girl’s abuse won’t testify against Arshid Hussain’

A detective was recorded warning the victim of an alleged serial child abuser that police officers who knew what had happened would not give evidence.

DC Lee Robinson told the woman that officers involved in her case when she was a teenager would not wish to make statements that would get them ‘in the s***’ for not acting at the time.

A  jury at Sheffield Crown Court was read a transcript of a conversation between two police officers and one of defendant Arshid Hussain’s alleged victims, who had secretly recorded the conversation on a mobile phone.
Presumably Robinson swore the Police Oath. He might even remember the bit about serving the Queen.... with fairness, integrity, diligence and impartiality. He definitely knows about Perverting The Course Of Justice & Perjury. Will they get away with crime this time? You bet. Police Corruption is deep seated, routine & very sincere. It's not just Rotherham either.


Bent Police Protect Pakistani Pervert In Rotherham [ 19 January 2016 ]
Another victim of Rotherham rapists didn't trust the filth, which is why she recorded a conversation. Otherwise the policewoman would have been able to lie her way out of it.


Police Protect Paedophile Perverts [ 14 April 2016 ]
A ‘paedo hunting’ Facebook page has been rapped by police for trying to trap a man online. Officers warned Hunters Online to stop pretending to be teenagers on website apps to catch paedophiles red-handed. Ryan Donaghey, one of the team behind Hunters, said they would comply with the police. But he defended the group’s activities saying “online grooming is a big problem and not enough is being done about it”.......

The police warning came after Hunters posed as a 15-year-old girl on an internet app and a 28-year-old man. They began to talk to them. The conversation was broadcast live on the group Facebook page and watched by horrified parents..........

“Some have told us we’re not breaking any laws so what are we doing wrong?" [ Making it look as though the police want them to get away with it - Editor ]
The South Yorkshire Police allowed 2,000 girls to be abused and Raped by Pakistani Perverts in Rotherham alone. Then there are hundreds of other known victims in Sheffield. It goes on. The police succeeded in suppressing the truth about wholesale crime for ten years or more. Now they are keeping themselves out of prison. NB The Guardian objects to people hunting for crime. Recall that The Guardian is the Marxist Propaganda machine telling the BBC the party line. The Beeb incites Homosexuality and also protects Paedophile perverts. Jimmy Savile is only one of them.


Police Corruption In Northumberland [ 6 May 2016 ]
Northumbria Police’s former Assistant Chief Constable, Greg Vant, is alleged to have conducted a clandestine relationship with Juliet Bains, secretary to the then Chief Constable, Mike Craik, who was himself accused of having an affair with a senior colleague.

The allegations were made by the force’s former head of legal services, Denise Aubery, 54, who claims she was asked to help cover up both affairs and was then sacked for gross misconduct after being accused of gossiping.
Who wasn't fornicating with whom? Pass. Police will be exercising their finely honed skill at Perjury. Northumberland is near to the South Yorkshire Police where corruption is rife.

Police Are Rotten To The Core Says Woman Scorned [ 10 August 2016 ]
Within three months of Sue Sim assuming the top job at Northumbria Police, one of the biggest manhunts in modern British history was launched..............

Quite daunting for even the most seasoned chief constable, you might agree. Yet ask Sue, who retired from the force last year, to name her biggest challenge in her job and she doesn’t mention Moat at all. Her fiercest fight, she says, was with her own officers.

‘My biggest battle was with a culture that was sexist, money-grabbing and run by a “boys’ club” of senior officers who thought they could do what they damn well wanted,’ she says............

‘There was a core of senior officers, who had been there for ever and who clearly felt they had a right to be there for ever, who felt they had a God-given right to act exactly how they liked,’ she says.
Idle, greedy, abusing expenses; they sound just like MPs in the Mother of Parliaments. Senior police have been getting away with it for longer. They know how to get away with it so they do. The crime prevention officer believes in ESSO - Every Saturday & Sunday Off.
PS Notice that she waited until the retirement cheque cleared before she babbled.

Predatory Police Perverts Exposed [ 23 October 2016 ]
Police who abuse their power for sexual advantage face new criminal sanctions as the scale of predatory behaviour by officers is revealed. Forces across the country are examining more than 150 cases of alleged sexual misconduct by police, a Times investigation found. It also uncovered that 400 members of the public have made complaints over the past five years.

Many officers stand accused of harassing, sexually assaulting or raping women after they reported a crime. In some cases victims were targeted within police stations..........

In May Theresa May declared that officers with “shameful attitudes” were beginning sexual relationships with victims. Mrs May, who was then home secretary, announced an inquiry into the exploitation of victims of abuse. The Law Commission, an independent body that recommends legal reform to government, will consider increasing culpability for officers who abuse their position for sexual gain.
Police have power, police abuse power. They can so they do. It was SOP [ standard operating procedure ] in the South Yorkshire Police, letting Pakistani Perverts rape English girls in Rotherham. It still is.


Police Protect Third World Pervert [ 23 October 2016 ]
Crossing the line: hundreds of police are facing sexual misconduct claims

Anirudh Raichura, a Metropolitan police officer, was dismissed for gross misconduct after abusing his position for sexual gain When an intoxicated young woman complained of being sexually assaulted by a rickshaw driver in London in the early hours of the morning, PC Rudi Raichura was dispatched to the scene.

As Raichura, 39, helped the distressed victim into a patrol car, his colleague was surprised to see the Metropolitan police officer reach over to put on the seatbelt and “whisper something in her ear”. Realising that Raichura had slipped his private telephone number to the woman, the colleague raised concerns with an inspector.

The PC was given a verbal warning about his behaviour but four months later a female GP complained that Raichura had insisted on driving her home in his patrol car and then asked her out on a date.

An internal investigation [ Officer dismissed following misconduct hearing ] revealed that Raichura had previously pursued a vulnerable victim of crime with whom he shared 88 texts. It also established that he had entered into a relationship with the initial sexual assault complainant. He was duly dismissed.
This one was a Third World chancer trying it on. The Times mentions Brits too. At least they did sort him out in the end.


Police Paedophile Convicted After Getting Away With £375,000 Libel Action [ 22 October 2016 ]
There was a major cover up on what happened in the North Wales child abuse scandal. It failed in part because Alison Taylor, a care worker refused to be bribed into silence. It happened in the same way in Rotherham where police and council officials managed to suppress the truth for a decade or more. See e.g. Rotherham whistleblower explains why sex abuse ring was covered up. It doesn't in fact but it does tell us about evidence being stolen or ignored. It is a major Perversion The Course Of Justice, which is still active. Her book is Broken and Betrayed.

Meanwhile we have the major 2014 Child Sexual Abuse Inquiry which is going badly with lawyers being sacked & active cover ups going on. It may be that Lowell Goddard, the third boss to go was forced out because she was in a position to accuse guilty politicians & police. It is Her Majesty's Government to wait until the guilty are dead before they pretend that they care. It worked for Jimmy Savile , 'Lord' Janner, Ted Heath et cetera.


Police Paedophile Pervert Get Twelve Years [ 10 November 2016 ]

A COP on sick leave has been selling threesomes with his girlfriend for £210 an hour. PC Daniel Moss, 41, launched his sleazy sideline with Tracey Perryman, 38, while signed off with “stress”. The Sussex cop runs the business at a flat in Hastings. A source said: “It’s incredible he’s doing this stuff while a serving officer.” Sussex Police have now launched a probe into the conduct of Moss, who could be disciplined or sacked for gross ­misconduct.........

Moss and Perryman were thought to be raking in up to thousands of pounds a month from their business at a two-bed flat near their semi in Hastings, East Sussex........

But “jobless” Tracey also allegedly claims benefits as a single mum after splitting from her factory worker husband Paul Brabon, 37.
It's not just gross misconduct; there's running a disorderly house, fraudulent sick claims, undeclared income(?), Misconduct In Public Office. But heigh ho, another policeman, another crook.

Police Conspired To Protect Rotherham Child Sex Abusers  [ 10 February 2017 ]
Corrupt police and an influential politician fuelled a culture of impunity that allowed three brothers to “own” the town of Rotherham and abuse children until their crimes were exposed by The Times.

One officer had sex with under-age girls, passed drugs to the sex-grooming gang and tipped them off when colleagues were searching for missing children, a court was told.

Another helped to broker a deal in which one brother returned an abused girl to police after receiving an assurance that he “wouldn’t get done”. The jury was told that Jahangir Akhtar, the former deputy leader of Rotherham council, also took part in the handover at a petrol station.

Mr Akhtar, the former deputy chairman of South Yorkshire police and crime panel, was a relative of Arshid, Basharat and Bannaras Hussain, who behaved for years “like a pack of animals” to pursue dozens of young girls before demanding sex, often with threats of violence. See The Times
Are the police named? More to the point, are they in prison?

Police Harass White People While Letting Enemy Aliens Carry On Raping, Thieving Etcetera [ 10 March 2017 ]
The number of white [ alleged ] terror suspects being arrested has hit a record high amid a crackdown on far-right extremism. A total of 91 white extremists were held in swoops by counter-terror police in 2016 – a rise of 28 per cent on the 71 seized the year before................. The rise has coincided with concerns about the risk posed to the UK by white supremacist groups in the wake of the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox in June last year..............

The authorities have expressed concern that there are signs of a resurgence from neo-Nazi groups after loner Thomas Mair was convicted of the brutal daylight killing.

Counter-terrorism police have said that, while the threat is not of the same gravity as that posed by Islamic State or Al Qaeda, there were extreme right-wing groups attempting to provoke violence and sow discord. [ They lie - Editor ].......

It [ white ] was the only ethnic group to record a rise last year, Home Office figures show. The sharpest fall was for those of Asian ethnic appearance, down by 24 to 125........

Lord Paddick, the Lib Dem home affairs spokesman and a former top Metropolitan Police officer, said: ‘The figures seems to reflect the rise of far right extremism and that should worry anyone who, like me, believes in tolerance [ of homosexual drug users in particular - Ed. ]

Rotherham Grooming Inquiry Hasn't Yet Seen Any Evidence Of Police Misconduct [ 9 March 2017 ]
An investigation into the police's handling of the Rotherham child sex scandal is yet to uncover any evidence of misconduct....... The commission said nine out the 62 investigations it is carrying out have now been completed, but that the officers involved have been found to have no case to answer.

However, the IPCC said it has identified 'significant failings' in the way survivors of abuse and alleged perpetrators were treated.......... 

The town was at the centre of the scandal after it emerged authorities had been turning a blind eye to the grooming, trafficking and rape of hundreds of youngsters.
They haven't seen any evidence because  they were determined not to. It is a cover up of a cover up. The Rape of 1,400 English girls was the quid pro quo, a pay off by The Labour Party for thousands of Pakistani votes, for industrial scale Vote Rigging. But "lessons have been learned" so it won't happen again, not until the next time. The perpetrators will walk away laughing, just the way they knew they were going to.


Police Thugs To Pay Lord Bramall £100 Thousand After Harassing Him [ 18 March 2017 ]
Lord Bramall is set to receive £100,000 in compensation from Scotland Yard over its bungled [ sic ] VIP paedophile inquiry.

The 93-year-old ex-military chief, whose home was raided at dawn by 22 officers after he was falsely accused of child sex abuse, has been offered a ‘substantial’ sum.

The Mail has learned the Metropolitan Police, which spent £2.5million on the inquiry, has negotiated ‘hard’ over compensation, saying it would have to come out of its policing budget.

But a former senior detective said last night: ‘This is a ludicrous argument, given how much money was wasted on Operation Midland in the first place. If the Met cared so much about budgets, why did it drag out the inquiry for so long?’.........

Although he was reluctant to sue, Lord Bramall was keen to ensure that the Met learns lessons. He is expected to donate the money to a charity.
The fellow running the Met, one 'Sir' Bernard Hogan-Howe is perfectly capable of ignoring crime when Pakistani Perverts are involved especially if they happen to be his little mate 'Lord' Nazir Ahmed, Baron Ahmed of Rotherham.
PS Take the point that Lord Bramall had to hire lawyers to sue the swine before getting any kind of satisfaction.


Bent Copper Had 14 Pounds Of Stolen Cocaine In The Washing Machine
A police inspector who was found with £700,000 of drugs at his home - including a huge amount of cocaine in his washing machine - was a 'criminal masquerading as a police officer', his force has said. Keith Boots, 55, was responsible for disposing of seized drugs for West Yorkshire Police in Bradford but instead stole large quantities to supply back on to the streets, Leeds Crown Court heard. He was found guilty of a range of offences yesterday and will be sentenced on Friday............

His son Ashley Boots, 30, of Weatherhouse Terrace, Halifax, was found guilty of conspiracy to supply controlled drugs, conspiracy to steal and conspiracy to Pervert The Course Of Justice. He admitted six charges of possessing drugs with intent to supply and one count of possessing ammunition. A third man, Ian Mitchell, 28, of no fixed address, was found guilty of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
Another copper, another thief, another liar.

Senior Police Protected Pakistani Perverts In Rotherham [ 22 April 2017 ]
After 10 months of battling with the Independent Police Complaints Commission to reveal the ranks of all police officers issued with misconduct notices, for their part in the Rotherham child abuse scandal, the IPCC have finally relented. On the 13th April, they sent a final follow up response to a Freedom of Information Request made by this website.

Since June of 2016, this site has been making repeated requests for information to establish how far up the ranks of South Yorkshire Police the willful disregard of child abuse had gone. The IPCC revealed the data piecemeal, then refused to disclose the ranks of two remaining officers. They argued [ said/claimed/alleged/pretended ] that disclosing the data would lead to the officers being readily identified, thereby placing them ‘at risk’..........

The IPCC, true to form, went into full cop protection mode, dug their heels in and refused to cooperate. It took a decision notice of the Information Commissioner’s Office, backed up with the threat of a High Court order, before the IPCC finally revealed a full list of all, but one, of the ranks involved.

In their final response, the IPCC confirmed that the highest ranking officer issued with a misconduct notice for their part in the Rotherham Scandal was a Chief Superintendent. They also voluntarily revealed that this officer is now retired. I can only assume they disclosed this fact to protect any officers of similar rank, currently serving with South Yorkshire Police, from being wrongly associated.......

What is clear, is that whoever this Chief Superintendent is (or was), they took early retirement in a bid to escape any misconduct proceedings. Something a large number of officers involved with the scandal have already done.......

 But it’s clear that the edict of ‘Go hard on the victims, go easy on the muslim community’ must have flowed from the top down.  The blame does lay partly with the lower ranking officers, who mindlessly followed their orders, but most of the blame should be redirected to the top ranks, who mindlessly conceived those orders. Who were these people? And why have none of them been disciplined, let alone prosecuted? [ Try corruption - Editor ].
Police talk among themselves. They all knew. They have all been given every opportunity to destroy any  evidence. The Establishment protects its own. Politicians [ Labour ] wanted large scale Vote Rigging. The quid pro quo was free licence to rape English girls. A few Pakistanis are being thrown to the wolves; the rest will go clear. The Casey Report and the Jay Report cover periods from 1997. This works for 'Sir' Bernard Hogan-Howe because he left the South Yorkshire Police in 1997 and contrived to know nothing about anything.

The lack of a trial has caused outrage and has led to massive demonstrations in Sunderland.
Rape is major crime unless the perpetrators are Pakistani Perverts. 1400 English girls in Rotherham are still waiting for justice, over a decade later. Her Majesty's Government Is Rotten To The Core.


Police Allow Islamic Rapists To Walk Free [ 3 July 2017 ]
In September 2016, Chelsey Wright was, according to police statements, abducted and raped by a gang of six migrants from Iraq, Syria, and Bahrain after her drink was spiked.

The victim woke up in a strange house in Sunderland with cuts and bruises. The sexual assault reportedly only stopped because she managed to escape. The young mother of three told police that during the escape, she was chased by several men who tried to drag her back into the house by her hair.

Eventually, after a fierce struggle, she broke free from her abductors and ran to a nearby relative’s house. It was then that Chelsey Wright called the police.

The next day Chelsey underwent a full rape examination, which showed that Chelsey had been violated by at least six men.

The investigation also showed Chelsey suffered extensive injuries and had traces of Rohypnol in her blood. The Sunderland police arrested all of the six refugees. Many witnesses told the police that they heard Chelsey’s screams as the men tried to keep her trapped in the house........

However, despite the physical evidence and witness statements the refugees were released without charge. Furthermore, the authorities say they are no longer pursuing an investigation.

The lack of a trial has caused outrage and has led to massive demonstrations in Sunderland.
Rape is major crime unless the perpetrators are Pakistani Perverts. 1400 English girls in Rotherham are still waiting for justice, over a decade later. Her Majesty's Government Is Rotten To The Core.

Police Superintendent Charged With Attempting To Pervert The Course Of Justice  [ 29 September 2017 ]
A police chief has been arrested on suspicion of trying to interfere with a probe into his alleged misconduct with female officers.

Superintendent Gez Chiariello, who is already suspended from his role pending the investigation, was detained on Monday. Thames Valley Police said the 46-year-old had been arrested on suspicion of Perverting The Course Of Justice................

He made headlines earlier this year after he left his wife and moved in with a policewoman almost 15 years his junior. 
He has a track record of bullying, including getting a Pakistani taxi driver sacked. See e.g. Final written warning for Milton Keynes police boss


Policeman Caught Driving Drunk Again  [ 6 October 2017 ]
Even the apparatchiks like this one, who are paid to market drinking and driving as evil don't believe the Party Line. Of course if he had killed someone that would be different, de facto Manslaughter.


Police Conspired To Protect Pakistani Paedophile Perverts In Rotherham  [ 28 November 2017 ]
Corrupt police and an influential politician fuelled a culture of impunity that allowed three brothers to “own” the town of Rotherham and abuse children until their crimes were exposed by The Times.

One officer had sex with under-age girls, passed drugs to the sex-grooming gang and tipped them off when colleagues were searching for missing children, a court was told.

Another helped to broker a deal in which one brother returned an abused girl to police after receiving an assurance that he “wouldn’t get done”. The jury was told that Jahangir Akhtar, the former deputy leader of Rotherham council, also took part in the handover at a petrol station.

Mr Akhtar, the former deputy chairman of South Yorkshire police and crime panel, was a relative of Arshid, Basharat and Bannaras Hussain, who behaved for years “like a pack of animals” to pursue dozens of young girls before demanding sex, often with threats of violence.
How many of these criminals have been charged, let alone convicted, sentenced, imprisoned & deported? Not very many. The Establishment spent years hiding the truth, protecting perverts, Perverting The Course Of Justice & importing more of them. Now it is using the 2014 Child Sexual Abuse Inquiry to hide the truth and make lawyers very rich. NB Akhtar seems to have gotten away with it but then he is a Pakistani. Of course the South Yorkshire Police are bent.


North Wales Police Perverted The Course Of Justice   [ 14 December 2017 ]
More dodgy police covering up child abuse, ably pointed out by Rebecca TV. Who were the police and what is happening to them? Police and Politicians have been above the law, that must change.
It was all a long time ago. Anglesea beat the rap by dying in prison; something of a pity. Cathy does not offer much in the way of evidence except for https://www.thecanary.co/uk/2017/12/08/nobodys-convicted-1600-deaths-custody-just-happened/ regarding police prisoners dying out. The fact that some/most/all are blacks/lunatics/berserkers is duly minimised. The Maucr Report, for what it might be worth is at Macur Review - Censored Version


Police Took Bungs From Major Manchester Criminals  [ 20 December 2017 ]
A £3.5million five-year probe into gangland money laundering collapsed this year amid claims of officers being offered 'brown envelopes' of cash and a mole's 15 minute warning before a raid, it was claimed today. Greater Manchester Police officers have been accused of taking bungs from friends and business associates of Paul 'Mr Big' Massey who was shot dead in Salford in 2015. 

Mr Massey, who was machine-gunned down on his drive by a man in military fatigues, was under investigation over alleged money laundering, fraud and tax evasion..................

But in June this year the five remaining suspects were told they wouldn't be prosecuted after the CPS reviewed the file.
The Crown Prosecution Service and police are separate to reduce corruption. Actually the CPS is bent as well. Perverting The Course Of Justice for the benefit of Racists inciting hate - if they are enemy aliens is part of it. See Undercover Mosque for more and better details, or see the next one.

04.03.2015 Supreme Court considers domestic extremism database In R(Catt) v Commissioner of Police for the Metropolis and others [2015] UKSC 9, the Supreme Court decided (by a majority of 4 to 1) that it was lawful for police forces to keep records on 90 year old war veteran John Catt’s lawful public political activities on the domestic extremism database. The Court ruled that the state’s collection of records on citizens’ political activities amounts to an interference with their privacy rights requiring justification but that it was justified in Mr Catt’s case.

11.02.2015 Zenati v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis and the Crown Prosecution Service Court of Appeal confirms that Article 5 requires the police and the CPS to act expeditiously both in investigating alleged offences when a person is in custody, and in ensuring that a suspect is brought speedily before a court where the evidence reveals that there is no longer reasonable suspicion to suspect the person of the offence(s).

The High Court finds those obligations to have been breached in this case, in which the police failed to investigate allegations made by the Claimants, four young Nigerian Women who had been brought into the UK illegally and forced to work as unpaid servants.

18.05.2011 Indefinite retention of fingerprints and DNA held to be unjustified interference with article 8 Supreme Court holds that indefinite retention of fingerprints and DNA was held to be an unjustified interference with article 8:
R (GC) v Commissioner of the Police for the Metropolis [2011] UKSC 21.

The Supreme Court reversed the House of Lords decision in S and Marper in light of the ECtHT decision in that case. However, the Supreme Court allowed further time for Parliament to produce revised guidelines.

The report, which had been conducted shortly after the death of Mr Peach but kept secret, concluded that the fatal blow to Mr Peach was struck by a police officer whose actions were then concealed by his brother officers.

12.01.2010 Regime for stop and searches breaches article 8 The Supreme Court holds that chief officers must have greater regard to Article 8 when considering whether to disclose information to Criminal Records Bureau and that in many cases the subject of the information should have the right to make representations. R(L) v Commissioner of Police for the Metropolis [2009] UKSC 3.

12.01.10 European Court of Human Rights hold that the regime for stop and searches without reasonable suspicion under section 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000 breaches article 8: Gillan and Quinton v UK App 4158/05 .

The court held that the searches amounted with any interference with Article 8 rights and that such interference could not be justified because they were not in accordance with the law as they were not subject to sufficient legal safeguards to guard against their arbitrary and discriminatory use.

29.10.2009 chief officers must have greater regard to Article 8 Supreme Court holds that chief officers must have greater regard to Article 8 when considering whether to disclose information to Criminal Records Bureau and that in many cases the subject of the information should have the right to make representations.

01.12.2008 New Regulations concerning police misconduct A new set of regulations came into force on 1 December 2008. Known as the Taylor Reforms (having been introduced in light of the Taylor Review of Police Disciplinary Arrangements), they included new procedures for police misconduct meetings and hearings. The Code of Conduct was been replaced by “Standards of Professional Behaviour”, including a new standard, Challenging and Reporting Improper Conduct, whereby police officers must report, challenge or take action against the conduct of colleagues which has fallen below the Standards.

26.11.2008 Suicide attempts require Article 2 compliant investigations House of Lords holds that whenever a prisoner attempts suicide and long-term injury results, an Article 2 compliant investigation will be necessary, irrespective of whether there was an arguable basis that the state was in breach of its substantive duties of protection under Article 2:

30.07.2008 House of Lords strikes out claim for negligence House of Lords strikes out claim for negligence brought by victim of crime on basis that the public policy considerations identified in Hill and Brooks negated the existence of a duty of care.

Smith v Chief Constable of Sussex Police [2008] UKHL 50

23.04.2008 Test for self-defence requires "honest belief" House of Lords refuses to strike out assault claim in Sussex police shooting.

20.12.2007 No fixed rule on awards for psychiatric injury, injury to feelings and aggravated damages The Court of Appeal provides guidance on the inter-relationship between awards for psychiatric injury, injury to feelings and aggravated damages.

18.07.2006 European Court of Human Rights finds UK in breach of Article 8 The European Court of Human Rights finds that the UK acted in breach of Article 8 as a result of Merseyside police failing to make adequate enquiries before applying for a search warrant.

28.06.2006 Court of Appeal guidance on quantifying damages in malicious prosecution claim The Court of Appeal provides useful guidance on quantifying basic and aggravated damages in a malicious prosecution claim but errs in suggesting that exemplary damages could not be awarded when the defendant was sued vicariously:
Manley v CPM [2006] EWCA Civ 879.

19.04.2006 Home Office changes scheme for victims of miscarriages of Justice The Home Office announced the immediate abolition of the discretionary limb of its scheme for compensating victims of miscarriages of justice.

14.02.2006 Home Office Commences Consultation in Respect of a New Code of Conduct for Police Officers The proposed new code (read here) incorporates ethics and conduct. The revised procedures for police disciplinary arrangements should, in essence, be based on Acas principles.

21.04.2005 Claimant loses negligence claim against police in House of Lords In the case of Duwayne Brooks v the Commissioner of Police for the Metropolis [2005] UKHL 24, the Claimant alleged, among other things, that the police had been negligent in failing to recognise him as a victim – he was Stephen Lawrence’s best friend and with him the night he died – and in the way they carried out their subsequent investigation. Although his claim in negligence failed in light of the principles established in the Hill case above, the House of Lords indicated that there would be 'exceptional' or 'outrageous' cases where these principles may not defeat a claim in negligence.

01.04.2004 The Independent Police Complaints Commission commences operation This body assumes conduct of the complaints system from the now defunct PCA. It has powers to independently investigate all deaths in custody and other very serious complaints, and to supervise or manage investigations into other complaints where appropriate. Most complaints continue to be investigated by police, with rights of appeal to the IPCC for complainants dissatisfied with the outcome of police investigations of their complaints. Greater openness and transparency is said to be the corner stone of the new system, including disclosure of the investigating officer’s report in most cases. Bhatt Murphy and others are continuing to work with the Commission in the hope that the aspirations of those who campaigned for its creation will be realised.

17.03.2004 Court of Appeal clarifies claims in malicious prosecution Court of Appeal rules that jury should be allowed to consider motives of police in bringing a prosecution, by means of inference.

In Paul v Chief Constable of Humberside [2004] EWCA Civ 308 the Court of Appeal ruled that the trial judge was wrong to prevent the jury from considering whether there was evidence of bad faith on the part of the police officers who had charged Jason Paul, where there was evidence to support his claim that his arrest was intended to deflect publicity from the shocking death of Christopher Alder in police custody on 1 April 1998. A re-trial was ordered and Mr Paul achieved damages from the jury in 2006. 2004 Greater Manchester Police successfully challenged for permitting officer to retire Public interest in officers facing discipline should be considered before permitting officers to resign.

R (Coghlan and others) v Greater Manchester Police [2004] EWHC 2801 (Admin)
Judicial Review of the failure to prevent the retirement of a senior police officer notwithstanding judicial conclusion that he had lied on oath. The Court recognised the public interest in permitting the complaints process to proceed. An important test case with regard to the ambit of Chief Officer’s discretion in this area.

23.10.2002 Murder by informant leads to successful civil claim against police for misfeasance Akenzua and another v SSHD and Commissioner of Police for the Metropolis [2002] EWCA Civ 1470. 2002 Police Reform Act The Act establishes the Independent Police Complaints Commission. It is supported by a raft of statutory instruments revising the complaints and discipline system for police.

02.10.2000 The Human Rights Act 1998 comes into force The Act extends the nature and extent of remedies for police misconduct.

17.05.2000 Reasons for CPS decisions not to prosecute required for the first time In a ground breaking judgement anticipating the impact of the Human Rights Act 1998, it was held in R v DPP ex parte Manning and Melbourne [CO/2054/99] (a successful challenge to refusal of the DPP to prosecute prison officers involved in unlawful killing of Alton Manning in custody) that the CPS was required to give reasons for decisions not to prosecute, especially in cases where officers of the state are accused of violations of Articles 2 or 3 of the ECHR.

11.08.1999 Butler report into CPS decision making published This report investigated decision-making processes within the CPS and in particular concentrated on the deaths in custody of Richard O’Brien and Shiji Lapite, and the torture inflicted in custody on Derek Treadaway. The report criticised the CPS decision making process and lead to substantial change including the requirement to consult independent counsel in serious police cases.

24.02.1999 The Stephen Lawrence Inquiry Report is published This ground-breaking report considered the wider implications of the botched police investigation into the murder of Stephen Lawrence on 22 April 1993. The report called for systemic changes in police practice, policy and procedure, such as the extension of the Race Relations Act to cover the investigative function of the police and the overhaul of the police complaints system to allow independent investigation of serious complaints.

1998 ECtHR case concerning negligence by police erodes police immunity In Osman v United Kingdom [1998] 29 EHRR 245 the ECtHR found that the domestic court rulings to the effect that the Osman family could not recover damages in negligence amounted to a breach of their right to a fair hearing (Article 6).

1998 New Civil Procedure Rules give entitlement to disclosure before proceedings are commenced A radical overhaul of the civil procedure regime extends to victims of police misconduct an entitlement to consider documents relevant to their potential claim before proceedings are commenced. However, efforts to agree a protocol for good practice between police lawyers and victims’ representatives flounder. 17.09.1997 The ECPT investigates lack of accountability for police misconduct 'Serious questions' about procedures for addressing police misconduct raised by European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT).

The CPT decided to visit the UK in late 1997 to examine, among other things, procedures in place to deal with police misconduct. The visit was prompted by the unlawful killing verdicts achieved in the cases of Richard O’Brien, Shiji Lapite and Ibrahima Sey and the officers’ apparent immunity from criminal and/or disciplinary sanction. Bhatt Murphy lawyers drew the CPT’s attention to the outcomes achieved in civil claims for damages and the lack of corresponding criminal and/or disciplinary sanction in these non-lethal cases. The CPT was very concerned by what they learned, stating that the CPS seemed to be setting an 'unduly high threshold' in deciding whether to prosecute, and that the PCA seemed to be 'ill-equipped' to carry out its ‘watchdog’ function'. They endorsed many of the Home Office Select Committee recommendations and suggested these be implemented. The government objected to publication of the report over a period of many months. 1997 Guidelines established for damages awards in civil actions against the police The Commissioner of Police for the Metropolis v Thompson and Hsu [1997] EWCA Civ 1042
The Court of Appeal responded to the Commissioner’s appeals against the high levels of compensation awarded in certain police cases by issuing guidelines for assessment. The guidelines brought to an end the extremely high level of awards in some cases but increased the threshold in others. The Court of Appeal rejected the Commissioner’s arguments that non-cooperation with the discredited police complaint system should reduce awards and that the upper limit of awards should be fixed by compensation in personal injury cases. 1997 The DPP is challenged for her failure to prosecute police officers First instance of a successful challenge to the exercise of the DPP’s prosecutorial discretion.

In R v DPP ex parte Treadaway [1997] EWHC Admin 741, (heard with similar successful challenges brought in respect of the unlawful killing of Richard O’Brien and Shiji Lapite in police custody), the Divisional Court upheld a challenge to the refusal of the DPP to prosecute the police officers involved in the torture of Derek Treadaway (see above) in terms which led to the Attorney General’s decision to set up an inquiry into the handling of such cases within the CPS (the ‘Butler Inquiry’). 1997 The end of statements in open court in litigation against police In Williamson v Commissioner of Police for the Metropolis [1997] EWCA Civ 2177, the Court of Appeal ruled that the public vindication sought by a claimant upon the settlement of a claim for malicious prosecution against police did not require a detailed statement of the relevant facts to be read out in open court – all that was required was a recitation of the fact of the acquittal in the prosecution. In effect, this meant that there was no longer any purpose to be served in seeking a statement in open court at all. 1997 - 1998 The Select Committee on Home Affairs recommends an independent police complaints system This recommendation, in response to the growing lack of public confidence in the police complaints system, led to a Home Office consultation, and ultimately, to the Police Reform Act 2002 and the establishment of the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

See the Select Committee on Home Affairs Second Special Report: Police Disciplinary and Complaints Procedures 1996 -7 Juries award record damages Very high jury awards in civil actions against police reflect depth of public concern about the misuse of police powers.

At Central London County Court in the space of a number of months, some 9 victims of police misconduct received ground breaking levels of compensation. The first and second of those victims, Claudette Thompson and Kenneth Hsu, faced a test case before the Court of Appeal to defend their awards. Other claimants, such as Trevor Gerald (who received £125,000 damages of which £100,000 was exemplary damages), Janet Scafe (who received £110,000 of which £90,000 was exemplary damages) and Terry Brownbill (who received £150,000 damages of which £100,000 was made up of exemplary damages) had followed advice from Bhatt Murphy lawyers not to co-operate with the discredited police complaint system but to pursue their grievance through the civil courts. While their awards were reduced by compromise or on appeal, they achieved significant public acknowledgement of the serious wrongdoing they had suffered and vindication before the juries. 1995 -7 Families join forces to seek justice for unlawful police killings Series of unlawful killing verdicts and challenges to the DPP’s decision making lead to increased public disquiet.

A number of high profile cases emerged concerning controversial restraint related deaths in police custody – mostly of black men. Public concern at the apparent lack of sanction for police officers involved in these deaths reached new levels after unlawful killing verdicts were returned by inquest juries in the cases of Richard O’Brien, Shiji Lapite and Ibrahima Sey. Further details are available on the investigating deaths in custody timeline.
