    The UK Police Misconduct Thread

    She's already been in direct charge of those shooters from 2011-15.

    Well, this appointment'll discourage the Met's trigger-happy cops from shooting first and thinking later, won't it?

    Dick shouldn't even be a police officer anymore, let alone the most senior one in the land.

    Beyond fucking parody.

    She was in charge of Special Ops for 4 years after John Yates bolted, which seems pretty jarring. Maybe not too many got killed then, or something. Though Duggan got shot in her first month.

    Christ. Cressida Dick appointed new Met commissioner

    "In 2002, no innocent Brazilians were shot dead on the Tube. In 2003, no innocent Brazilians were shot dead on the Tube. In 2004, no innocent Brazilians were shot dead on the Tube. In 2005, some one was shot dead on the Tube. In 2006, no innocent Brazilians were shot dead on the Tube. In 2007, no innocent Brazilians were shot dead on the Tube. I mean I could go on…"

    The police aren't stupid.

    Just a little slow.

    https://www.theguardian.com/law/2017/feb/02/stop-and-search-police-unacceptably-slow-to-comply-with-new-rules

    Four police forces have made “unacceptably slow progress” to comply with government rules aimed at eliminating discrimination in stop and search, a report has found.

    An emergency special inspection by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary found that forces in Greater Manchester, South Yorkshire, Northamptonshire and Derbyshire were still breaking the rules when visited in November 2016.
    South Yorks, eh? Who'da thunk!

    I love the way that the Mirror throws in his salary, for that extra frisson* of hatred, as if we didn't have enough to throughly loathe him for.

    *probably not the correct word.

    Not only retrospectively changing their own statements, but those of third parties, too.

    Doubtless this won't be regarded as "misconduct" by Sussex Police

    we expect the highest standards from all our staff and anyone found to have acted inappropriately will face disciplinary action
    Best of luck with that one, people.

    What an utterly unsurprising decision. As if the rock solid alliance of Tory scum and their lapdog private security thugs was ever going to be broken up.

    No surprise. Hillsborough was South Yorkshire police's own catastrophic fuck up whereas at Orgreave they were under strict orders from 10 Downing St. Any in depth inquiry would reveal the extraordinary machinations of an administration on a class war footing. The real enemy within.

    "Cole, a sports science student at Bedfordshire University, suffered a so-called hangman’s fracture, with experts saying it was the result of considerable force being used on his neck while his head was being pulled back. The investigation is considering if police officers were responsible for breaking his neck, and if they were, whether it amounts to an act of misconduct or criminality.

    "The family claim police initially tried to mislead them in the immediate aftermath. They say one officer told them Cole was talking after his arrest. His family say medical evidence shows this would be impossible for someone whose spinal cord had been severed. Another allegedly claimed Cole was drunk but his family say medical tests show he was not."
    This case is back in the news again today as the officers 'could face criminal charges'. However those charges don't seem all that strong in comparison to what happened to Cole.
