Is Sue Akers Pointing To Widespread Police Corruption?

Sue Akers is certainly getting some work done.  I don’t believe in widespread police corruption, though I do now think our society is shot through with the stuff.  Akers’ claims are presumably backed by the initial evidence arising.  Evidence clearly available had any enquiry really been done in the past.  The big problem doing any enquiry is being able to get access to and investigate what’s been going on.  We would, of course, not known about the thieving parliamentarians if money had not been on the table to a whistleblower.  Even subsequent to the Telegraph and the intrepid Heather Brookes, material was still issued with material redactions.

Maybe what’s really at issue here is secrecy and the need for information to be much more freely available – with people responsible for its publication also being criminally responsible if they fail?  The Met is hardly covered in glory and we have hardly missed Yates and Stephenson – the former presumably making no impact on high salary in Bahrain either.  If we are to believe the story that this was not investigated because there were other much more pressing demands like terrorism, should we now conclude we are at more risk because Ms Akers and her team are diverted from such purpose with the Olympics pending?  From what I’ve seen she would be better fitted to the complex, multi-sourced enquiries involved in terrorism, than the buffoon men of the past.

  1. I’m not entirely sure what to make of this. As a police officer with a general dislike of the tabloid media, notably the Mail, Sun et al, my opinion would probably be obvious. However as someone who strongly believes in freedom of the individual to say what they like (and this extends to journalists) I’m unsure what side of the fence I need to be on.

    All I know is that my arse hurts.

    • If you said the last bit near a Sun journo he’d probably take it as an offer for the grease to be paid in pile ointment! I was offered a bung by a Mail hack nearly 30 years back and you can just where I suggested he put it. The blame lies with an uneducated gossip-lusting public. When you look at some of the barking decisions in courts (both ways), considered argument fairs no better. This shebang is based on the emotional response to the poor kid they keep showing doing the ironing.

    Heh! There’s mischief to be made should someone start to make that point, isn’t there?

  4. My name is Dr. Moreland, I recently sent out an e-mail asking everyone to sign the petition at change.org to bring the department of justice to Albuquerque to reform our city police department. For those of you who do not know my brother in law Christopher Michael Torres was killed by 2 undercover policemen. They said they were delivering a traffic warrant and shot him in the back 3 times at point blank range within 1.5 minutes of arriving at the house. Christopher did not deserve to die. Please help me help our city and good police officers by signing the petition at the link below – PLEASE. Christopher was only 1 of 18 fatally shot in the last 2 years. 26 have been shot. There are also many other civil rights violations that have been submitted to the DOJ
