No jokey images today. Just words!!!!!!!!
I know I have been quiet and appear to have gone walkabout recently but, as always, there is a reason. Recently, I complained to the IPCC and a police force in this country that officers from their uPSD acted corruptly in an investigation which led to the sacking of an officer for excessive use of force. I have provided an account of the evidence I have in my possession which asks serious questions of the investigators, their superiors, the IPCC and a couple of ACPO idiots, all of which have had a direct involvement in this matter whether by being an investigator or a reviewer of the matter.
The IPCC have hidden behind their now famous “It’s got nothing to do with us” line (courtesy of the Police Reform Act 2000) which they espouse every time they get an allegation they cannot make significant publicity out of. I do ask the reader to note that they required no such encouragement when they announced their investigation into the phone hacking matter which they completed in world record time. However, I shall have my day in the public arena with them.
The evidence I have is a concern as the best it can be construed is a deliberate misrepresentation of the truth. Personally, I think it was a deliberate Noble Cause Corruption. That is because I have other anecdotal evidence about other matters so I know how the uPSD works. As I have now got someone looking into the matter in the force concerned I chose to wind my neck in for a bit.
Only, I have just heard something which made me angry. Angry because it is typical of the incompetent and imbalanced view you very often get in the hierarchy of a uPSD. Today I learnt that a particular inspector had been allocated the enquiry to check the veracity of my allegations. I know the inspector who I do not consider to be in the top half of my competence table in the force let alone the uPSD. Anyway, they deserve a chance. An informed source then gets in touch with me. The inspector has been overheard questioning people about the issue, one of which was a federation representative.
The Inspector started on the fed rep by telling him that the enquiry was a joke and that the officer deserved sacking, after all had the fed rep seen the video coverage? Why does the officer want his job back? The inspector singularly fails to understand that the officer provided his justification as to why he felt it necessary to use some open palm strikes on a violent and dangerous prisoner. The inspector, displaying all the necessary qualities of Noble Cause Corruption, believes that the right result has been achieved and b*llocks to the way the uPSD achieved it.
I have news for the Inspector. This news is my calming measure as it provides a balanced and open viewpoint. Procedurally, a deliberately, criminally flawed investigation which achieves a result considered to be the right result is just as bad as the action that it purports to challenge. It is not for the investigator to hold the views you hold and therefore you prove your incompetence to me and justify my opinion of your abilities. I have the ace card because I have the opportunity to take this matter to the press to have the public debate I think it deserves and I consider my professionalism in giving both you and the IPCC ample opportunity to investigate my allegations will prove my integrity.
Oh, by the way, the officer should not have been sacked for defending himself and other officers in the way he did. Put simply, we all know his face did not fit!!
