Policing the Police

The so-called "Independent" Police Complaints Commission is a joke.

Being run by former bent cops, it does nothing but cover up for bent cops, who, in Tony Blair's Brave New Britain, are allowed to kill passers-by at random and with impunity.

If public confidence in the Police is ever to be restored, then there needs to be a genuinely independent supervisory body.

Repeal the trend of never charging the police with murder / manslaughter.

After it was decided today not to press charges regarding the killing of the man who was walking by the G20 protest last year (but not a partaking in it) by a police officer, is it not about time that the police were subject to the same rule of law as that which they so vindictively enforce?

Charges are rarely if ever brought against violent and offensive police officers, not even in the case of Juan Charles de Mendez did a single police officer get charged with murder. They put 7 bullets into that poor innocent man's head and the resulting enquiry found none guilty of (at the very least) manslaughter. Indeed, the female police officer in charge of that operation was later promoted.

I am utterly fed up with the attitude of the CPS. They send out a message to other police persons that they have Cart Blanche to act in any manner of their choosing and this is resulting in far to many innocent people getting hurt.

The UK public have rightly lost all respect for the law due to ridiculous and unnecessary pseudo-fascist legislation that impinge on every aspect of civilian life. Mixed with the total impunity of the police force, this creates a population that has no respect, admiration or trust in their police.

Currently they are seen as oppressive enforcers of often unlawful, irrational and unjust laws yet simultaneously it is noted that they are not bound by the same rule of law as the public have to suffer on a daily basis.

Repeal the absurdly unjustifiable constant impunity of the police and have them subject to the same law as everybody else in order to restore some kind of faith in the police within British society.

Misused of Terrorism Laws Should be a Criminal Offence

All existing terrorist laws should be ammended to make their use for any purpose not directly related to terrorism a criminal offence. And future ones should contain this provision.

police officers should have large, highly visible numbers and names on their uniform at ALL times

these should be especially large and visible in situations where they may not be wearing their usual uniform and accountability is especially important, such as public order situations

it should be a criminal offence for police not to display these
