Police get away with murder

July 22, 2010

First they lie and when they get caught lying they get away with murder anyway.

What price justice? We’d be a banana republic, but it’s too cold to grow bananas.

    I’m afraid I see a dark sinister hand in this – the Tories know they’re going to need their thugs to keep the people down as they dismantle our society. The police have shown in recent years what happens when a one of theirs is disciplined – they effectively down tools until the charges are dropped and the Tories have simply fixed this outcome to keep them sweet.

    Oh dear and you were doing so well before you started with the personal attacks.

    Regrettably this is further evidence of the ‘establishment’s’ collusion to maintain a police state.

    The CPS has decided not to prosecute the officer who unlawfully killed Ian Tomlinson near the G20 rally. In doing so Keir Starmer QC (head of CPS) has discounted the views of two eminent forensic pathologists who say Mr Tomlinson died as a result of injuries sustained in the attack but instead has favoured the autopsy from discredited pathologist Dr Freddy Patel, who has been suspended from forensic pathology by the GMC because of alleged negligence in cases between 2002 and 2005.

    Since when has it been the responsibility of the CPS to decide on ‘guilt beyond reasonable doubt’; isn’t that the responsibility of the courts and a jury of 12 good men and women?

    Keir Starmer has further shown his negligence as he failed to bring a charge of common assault against the officer in the allotted time.

    This would be inexcusable for a junior solicitor but Kier Starmer is a top QC in charge of the CPS. He is clearly not fit for purpose. He must be sacked before he resigns and buggers off with another golden handshake.

    Our brave service personnel are giving their lives to protect the rights of the people of Iraq and Afghanistan from such outrages yet they continue at home.

    The police continue to get away with murder as we have seen in this case and that of Blair Peach, Jean-Charles De Menezes. Raoul Moat and now Ian Tomlinson.

    Oh, but how can I say Mr Moat was murdered? you cry; I can because his act was involuntary at the hands of the police, not voluntary of his own volition. We all knew Moat had the gun to his head with a finger on the trigger. Yet against all protocol, the police crowded round him increasing his agitation though threat and they then fired two super Tasers at Moat. Tasers work by causing ‘involuntary’ spasm of the nervous and muscle systems. Even a cretin would realise that this might very likely cause him to pull the trigger through involuntary spasm even if he had no voluntary intention of so doing. Furthermore; the Taser guns were issued to the offers despite not being licenced by the Home Office and the officers did not receive formal training in their use – just a ten minute informal practice of shooting at waste bags. So yes, he was murdered. But like all the other cases, the police get together and collude a tissue of lies.

    Not one of us is safe from this regime.

    Indeed John, dark times ahead.

    This isn’t justice, it’s a farce. They’re rubbing our faces in it now. What are we going to do about it? Have a revolution? They have all the weapons…

    Beginning of the end.

    The British people are sheep who as long as they have their X Factor and Eastenders can’t see what the problem is – Bread and Circuses is as true today as it was in decadent Rome 2,000 years ago and we all know what happened next.

    Quite true Barker; if we were not so sheep-like we would (as a nation), like our French neighbours, have used the guilotene to fashion the topiary of our ‘establishment’.

    Whilst we savour our so-called democracy, there is the valid point that if a dictator fails to deliver; a coup is generally more effective than the ballot box. The Castros may be despised by the rouge nation to their north but they have a tremendous loyalty from the Cuban populus. We, meanwhile have reached a state of democratic impotence.

    There’s outrage over the miscarriage of justice; whilst Ian Tomlinson’s family will campaign dilligently and carry the burdon for years, already the event has crept down the news agenda and will soon be forgotten. How many people give a fig about Dr David Kelly nowadays – yet it still widely believed that he was murdered by the British security service, more so since testimony from friends and colleagues of Dr Kelly revealed that he was so physically weak that he could not have severed his own wrists, but it would be a pushover for the establishment’s thugs.

    David Cameron dutifully apologised for the people of Ireland for the Good Friday massacre and subsequent establishment cover-ups. It is regrettable that he has made no comment on the CPS’s failure to effectively process the Tomlinson case. It’s no use posturing that he can’t say anything as it might jeopodise legal process; he was happy to posture on every available platform about the Raoul Moat case and it has become quite evident that all routes of justice for the Tomlinson family have been renderred null and void by the negligence of Kier Starmer and his team.

    In the United Kingdom; over 1000 people have died in police custody in the last 50 years without a single officer being prosecuted, even when it has been shown beyond reasonable doubt that the officers unlawfully killed the innocent victims. The police continue to get away with murder. This is hardly different to General Pinochet’s regime of state sponsord murder.

    Our country is leading Iraq and Afghanistan by the nanny-hand in forming civillised democracies. It seems the UK needs help from our European allies in establishing such process here.

    I consider myself a World Citizen. Such actions by our leaders make me quite ashamed to be British. We are a politically and sociallyan immature, third-world country.

      Indeed and I am pleased we agree on so many issues John

    Another excellent post John. I often wonder at the idiocy of the nation that revels in labelling the French as ‘surrender monkeys’ and then lets the right wing establishment do anything to it without a murmur. I ask you would the French do that? No chance – they get together and stand against government dictatorship whereas we collectively bend over and just take it and then pretend that it’s just the famous British reserve ha ha what a con.

    Had Great Britain been next door to Germany and without the benefit of the English Channel, then we too may have been ‘surrender monkeys’. Beyond courage, despite the wealth of our nation, we were certainly ill-equipped defend ourselves. France then was a particularly poor and oft-called ‘peasant’ nation but despite the government signing the armistice, the various resistance movements but up brave defences and were invaluable in supplying intelligence and aid to the British armed forces and intelligence services. Since that time France has seen sustainable growth and development in trade, science, health and defence.

    We have much to learn from our French neighbours. They have the finest electricity supply network in Europe, if not the world which is heavily supported by nuclear energy. Likewise, their public transport private transport networks are much better that the UK’s. They have some of the best armed forces in the world and a police force with enviable reputation. They trade freely with Europe and with our ‘special friend’ the USA. Yet at the same time they are committed to their own farmers and national self-sufficiency. They are a liberal democracy but one which is not afraid to be strict in legislation when it is for the good of the nation.

    During the recent global banking crisis the domestic French finance houses fared much better than the rest of Europe. Likewise, in Canada, their financial system did not succumb to the ravages of banking as did neighbouring USA. I wonder if this might not be down to the balance and pragmatism of and anglo-gallic union that prevail through much of France.

    Your point about the channel is one I also regularly make. Just about everything about French society is superior to the ‘me first’ British one. They don’t point the finger and say why should they be allowed to claim such and such when I pay my taxes and instead say if we pull together we can all have it better – a point lost on almost all Brits. One other great plus about France is you can go out and enjoy an evening in a town or city centre without tripping over chavs trying to give you a hard time every second step.
