Police Cautions Must Be Removed

Dear All I was given a police caution for a very minor event which I cannot go into details for legal reasons. This has dramatically changed my life because although I have numerous degrees behind me it was all for nothing because it seems as if no one is interested in employing me. I am currently being treated by psychologists for depression and trauma.
However, there are many of us who were given or accepted a police caution for numerous reasons. This includes signing the form under pressure by a police officer, being given the wrong information such as the caution would be removed within a period of time (mainly 5years), or for fear of being kept in a cell for over a night. Whatever the reason may be, I am of the opinion that those who have received a police caution particular for minor offences should not be punished for the rest of their life. Though the police have the power to caution individuals, they are not judges and it is not certain that if you have gone ahead with court proceedings you would be convicted. I am sure that many of us now wished that we went ahead with court proceedings because in my case I was advised that CPS would not accept my case but now is too late. A CAUTION IS AS GOOD AS A CONVICTION. My only problem is I cannot live under this oppression of being labelled a criminal by employers and other members
of the public. I much prefer to get a prison life sentence than to live in this society being turned down jobs after jobs and having only one option of depending in benefits. As you may be aware the Protection of Freedoms Bill 2011-2012 maintains that adults with cautions will have their records kept indefinitely which is disproportionate. Therefore, I am asking those who have not got a chance to come before a judge to sign a caution Epetition at HM Government. Website is: Epetitions.direct.uk/petitions. 100.000 signatures are required for the government to consider the discussion in the parliament. Let us do something or lets us live in rejection, discrimination, and in misery for the rest of our lives for a minor mistake or choice that we have taken. Thanks

Why is this idea important?

Free Speech – Review Section 4a and 5 of the Public Order Act

The European Commissioner for Human Rights said that Liam Stacey’s sentence under 4a of the Public Order Act was “wrong”.

If a judge has the power to send someone to prison for a minor speech offence under this Act, then there is something very wrong with the Public Order Act.

I think the government should urgently review these laws.

Protection of burglars’ identity

We continue to see reports in our local paper of burglars convicted, and asking for large numbers of other offences to be taken into consideration. Most have a record of similar offences stretching back years. Yet police are apparently not allowed to confirm or release the identity of these people to, for example neighbourhood watches.

Offenders with long histories should lose their rights to privacy, with their identity released to Neighbourhood Watches.
