A barrister gone loopy with a drink problem gets shot by cops after hours of messing about in large numbers. There appear to be some serious issues on over-kill, clown negotiation and leaving a woman an baby next door scared. So what do we investigate – some harmless pratting about by a cop giving evidence! Elsewhere we find Cumbria police could do firearms licensing checks. Around the country serious bungling and money-wasting, not to say corruption goes without investigation. Time to scrap PSDs and IPCC, perhaps fining senior officers in the same a few years of bonus payments. A new civilian crew with some elected people could replace it all and be charged both with preventing management excesses against officers and with open investigations of police wrong-doing. Cops would cease to have any input into what gets investigated.
