I present here one of the notices sent to me by the Independent Police and Crimes Commission (IPCC). Part of it tells me that my appeal has been upheld. But it does not mean very much because the police are allowed to deal with the matter ad nauseum. What they haven't excused the first time they will excuse on the way back. I was also told that, even though they had been wrong throughout 2010, they could still find me suspicious because I had not signed Blackburn's notebook. From then on they could arrest me any time they wanted even when they could not find anything wrong with me. There is no such law but IPCC makes law and without the benefit of Parliament.
To the right of this page are the details of the pledge that police officers make when they become officers. There may well be recent changes but these pledges were extant at the relevant time. It is very officious language but we all know that it means honest, truthful, and impartial. But the Professional Standards Branch takes it to mean different things altogether. Their job is to make sure that no officer has ever done anything wrong. They are very good at what they do.
The code of practice for police officer is all that we would want it to be but officers may disregard it altogether. There is no sanction for ignoring their pledge and at any opportunity a police force will trumpet what wonderful officers they have on the force. Don't believe it! It is no better than advertising from some low life betting shop.
Consider once more their official pledge. Impartial, that means fair to all, Honest, that means always telling the truth. Was Blackburn impartial when for 18 months he trailed me while he let the vandals trash nour green. Was Blackburn honest when he told lie after lie not least in court under oath. Whatever allegations are made against the police there is always a get out of jail card. Can this be considered honest?
In the appeal notice included here an earlier letter simply said that the appeal had been upheld, this second letter says the same but with reservations. It is always the sam. The police may go on excusing themselves until there is noth left of the appeal. The latest is that, although I had done nothing wrong, the police were allowed to arrest me because they were "suspicious". This was because I had refused to sign the officer's notebook. Never have I ever heard of such a law and I don't believe that there is one.
