A Dangerous Felon Is Apprehended!

The court heard that the 25-year-old Mark D'arcy-Smith was having an after work drink with a friend at the Richmal Crompton in Westmoreland Place, Bromley, on November 8, 2019, when staff brought over a plate with a single banana on it and an accompanying receipt.
When the shocked communications professional told them neither he nor his friend had ordered the item, it was explained that they had received an order via the pub's app for a single banana costing 30p to go to table number 102 - the one they were sitting at. Mr D'arcy-Smith explained he felt humiliated by the incident, which he firmly believed was racially motivated. He said: "We both looked at each other then looked at the banana. It clicked that it wasn't ours. It was clearly sent by someone who was trying to be racist."
When he next walked past the pub even the memory of what had happened left him trembling and his hands feeling shaky, he said.

Oh, harden up, Princess! 

Kincella was arrested on 17 January at his home address.While he did not deny being in the pub and admitted to ordering the banana, he insisted it was done 'for a joke' and that he did not intend for it to go anywhere other than his own table.
He was charged on April 3.

Whew! That's a long investigation.  

After the result, the victim paid tribute to the investigating officer for her efforts. He said: "Hearing the verdict felt like a massive weight was lifted from my shoulders.
“I can't thank DC Heywood and the Met enough for their support and guidance throughout."

Well, there's one satisfied customer, anyway. 

Detective Inspector Stuart Hart, head of the Safeguarding Team, added: "There was no CCTV available, and it was not a straightforward matter to identify the suspect.
“This required a painstaking investigation by my lead officer, who paid meticulous attention to minor details in order to gather the vital evidence that led to this successful result."

How difficult could it have really been to trace an order from an app on a mobile phone, FFS!? One that required bank details..?

He was fined a total of £600 and has to pay costs of £620 in addition.

I bet the investigation and trial itself cost multiple thousands more. Is this really a good way to spend public funds? 

Almost Beyond Belief...

The 23-year-old fired the gun with his hands still handcuffed behind his back hitting the veteran officer allegedly several times in the heart at point-blank range.

Who was this guy, Jason Bourne?! 

In the ensuing chaos the attacker's weapon went off again, wounding him in his neck, but he remains alive in a critical condition.

Interesting. Earlier reports were of him turning the gun on himself... 

Sources said the officers failed to find the small firearm as it had been well concealed and would have been recovered only with an intimate strip search and body cavity check.


The suspect is believed to be autistic and of Sri Lankan origin, according to The Times.

Also on the 'Prevent' programme. Isn't it time we let their countries of origin do the preventing? 

And it's a pity we can't deport this bitch somewhere: 

She deleted her account. She should be defrocked.

It's Always The Quiet Ones, Isn't It?

And when it's not them, it's the former government employees: 

The 54-year-old, who had a PhD in neuroscience and said he previously worked at Government facility Porton Down, suffered from bipolar affective disorder, the court was told.

But are we sure he was crazy? 

He told police he had also written a letter to Boris Johnson criticising his attitude to Russia...

Hmmm, not convinced. 

...and a letter to then Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in which he praised him.

Ah. OK then. 

Mark Pritchard, defending, said Doyle had been living with agoraphobia since 2013 following the death of a friend.

How'd he get out to the post office then? 

Joseph Allman, prosecuting, said when police raided Doyle's home in Fir Street they found more than 245,000 indecent images of children on a laptop.


Now, What Sort Of Job Doesn't Require A Good Name..?

Naomi Jayne Buckland, 22, acted out of ‘misguided loyalty’ to her brother Nathan, a court heard.
He was in custody accused of killing a man outside a pub in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, in September 2018.
And she was....a police recruit. With access to the force's computer system. You can see where this is going, can't you?
Sam Faulks, prosecuting, told Durham Crown Court she was asked to check if an inmate in the jail where her brother, then 25, was held in custody was an undercover police officer.
In a phone call to her brother, which was recorded, she said the inmate was not an officer.

Hopefully the 'recorded' bit means Professional Standards could see where it was going too... 

Mark Styles, defending, said: ‘If there was a case of misguided loyalty to a family member, this was it. As a result she lost her job and good name.

Yes, those are called consequences. Luckily for her, she possesses the magic Get Out Of Jail Free card her brother lacked: 

Buckland, of Newton Aycliffe, admitted unauthorised computer access and was sentenced to 16 months in jail, suspended for two years.

Well, what can she do now, as an untrustworthy almost-jailbird? Who'd employ her? 

Mr Styles said Buckland is now planning to re-train as a mental health nurse.

Maybe You Shouldn't Act So Much Like One, Then?

When Cashley was brought in on a warrant two weeks later, a furious Judge Burgess told him: 'I am not some glorified social worker, I am a Crown Court judge. I am not here to be touchy feely forever and a day.
'You may think this is all stuff and nonsense from some windbag judge sitting here in a silly cloak, but it is not. Frankly, I think you have been taking the mick since I imposed this Order on you.'

Well, yes, he clearly was. did you deal with it? 

Giving Cashley a final chance, Judge Burgess spared him jail once again...


...but by January this year the teenager was back again, having shown shown 'flagrant disregard' for the youth order.
Calling the breaches 'concerning and upsetting', Judge Burgess detained Cashley in a young offender's institute for four months.

And did that teach him a valuable lesson? Reader, it did not. So, over to another judge who deal with him as he des...

Oh, FFS! 

Judge Norton, before sentencing the boy, pleaded with him to change his ways, saying: 'You are young and although from all that has been placed before me, you seem to want to go down the path of offending, there are still people out there who have faith in you and your ability to succeed in life. Take that support'.
Cashley, who had laughed and smirked while sitting at the video link booth in HMP Feltham, promised he would take the help on offer.

Yeah, I'm sure that'll happen. 

Unsurprisingly, The Answer Was 'You Must Be Joking, Right?'...

Wednesday’s demonstrations come in response to the long-awaited decision by a grand jury about whether the officers involved in the death of Taylor, who was shot in her apartment in Lousiville on 13 March by white police officers who were serving a so-called “no-knock” warrant”, would be punished.
I mean, was it ever in doubt that police who were fired upon by a man they were trying to arrest were entitled to return fire?
Ben Crump, a lawyer for Taylor’s family, denounced the decision as “outrageous and offensive”, and protesters shouting, “No justice, no peace!” immediately took to the streets following the news.

So in protesting the accidental (but fairly unsurprising) death of a woman who chose poorly when looking for someone to shack up with, of course the professional agitators decide to riot and shoot police officers. 

Everyone knows that makes things better, right?  

Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, also called for police reforms in the wake of Wednesday’s decision, saying the country should start by addressing excessive force, banning chokeholds and overhauling no-knock warrants.

Well, there you have it. The way to prevent black criminals from dying at the hands of the police (which is all these people care about, the fact they die at a far greater rate at the hands of their fellow criminals isn't worth mentioning) is to give up on fighting crime. What a vote winner!

I Have 'No Doubt In My Mind' Too...

Having suffered 16 wounds, she later underwent three hours of surgery to repair lacerations to her front temple, shoulder and arm.
McGrath was questioned at the scene by police, who took both him and the dog back to his partner's house.
The following day officers checked to see if he had handed over the animal to be humanely destroyed, but McGrath told them he had killed the dog himself.

Oh, really? Why? 

The court heard he had received death threats and was under pressure to dispose of the dog, but did not have the money to take the animal to a vet to be euthanised.

Well, maybe the police should have seized it and ensured it was destroyed then? 

I mean, really, the honour system for a dangerous dog? What are they putting in the Guinness over there? 

No remains of the dog were found when police searched McGrath's home, but during interviews he claimed to (sic) killed the animal at a dump near Ligoniel.
"He admitted killing the dog by hitting it over the crown of the head with a hammer twice, and then putting its remains in a wheelie bin, covering it with copper wire and petrol, and setting the remains and the tools he used on fire," a prosecution barrister said.
But no evidence of dog remains or the burnt bins were found during further searches of the dump area either.


The judge said it was a "terrible case" in which a girl had sustained "lasting injury" and a dog was treated in an "appalling" manner.
"I have no doubt in my mind that unnecessary suffering was caused to that animal."
He sentencing McGrath to four months in prison but that term is now subject to appeal.

I wonder where the animal is now? It's not over the Rainbow Bridge, is it? 

UK 'Justice' - Late And Worthless...

Mr McSkimming was driving at 59mph in a 40mph zone when he collided with keen cyclist Anthony Satterthwaite, 51.
He was travelling almost 20mph over the speed limit on Eastcote Lane, Solihull, West Midlands, when he lost control on a bend.
His car hit a tree and spun across the road and hit Mr Satterthwaite who was cycling in the opposite direction.

This was Christmas 2018. It's now Autumn 2020. What the hell took so long? 

McSkimming, who lives in £485,000 house in Knowle, West Midlands, admitted causing death by careless driving at Birmingham Crown Court.
Yesterday he was sentenced to six months in prison, suspended for two years, and was ordered to carry out 250 hours community service and banned from driving for two years.

Well, that'll teach him...

Thank God She Isn't In CID...


PC Scudder ... denied that more information on his past, such as violent incidents and the fact his mental condition could deteriorate very quickly, would have made a difference to how they dealt with Kevin.
She earlier said that “all the information is better” but that “it doesn’t necessarily have an overall impact on the decision that is made, given what officers are presented with at that time”.
We can’t judge people based on the past. We have to make a decision based on what is presented to us at that time.
“For example, if someone had been arrested for robbery 18 times, that doesn’t mean that he’s committed that robbery at that time,” she said.

Errr, well, no. But it does mean that, should you be scouring the streets for a robbery suspect, he'd be firmly at the top of your list, and worth stopping and questioning. Just as a mentally ill patient who has a history of decompensating rapidly should be considered more of a risk.

What are they teaching them at Hendon these days? 

The coroner asked PC Scudder if the “tragic incident” had made any difference to how she “personally” conducts herself. Tearfully, the officer said: “This particular situation with Mr Clarke is incredibly heartbreaking.
“It’s something that I think about every single day.”
PC Scudder took a break after becoming upset.

*rolls eyes* 

On return she said: “In a situation like this, I believe it would be recommended to take a staff member with us at that time when trying to communicate with Mr Clarke.
“In my eyes, they are the professionals, and they maybe would be able to ask questions […] that may have changed the outcome of the situation.”
She said she would “pause and give people the opportunity to talk” and she would “ask more questions and not have the view that the [health professionals] would tell me what’s necessary”.

You're a police officer, and you think people will always volunteer information without the need for probing and questioning? Jeez! No wonder you cry when you can't get your own way... 

Found! Some Real Tories!

This must be the scoop of the century! It's like finding Bigfoot riding Shergar... 

Tories in the European Research Group and “Common Sense Group” of right-leaning MPs said most of their colleagues would not take part.
I would really rather gouge my eyes out with a blunt stick than sit through that Marxist, snake oil crap,” said one.
Real Tories! Well I never... 

And they are getting up the noses of all the right people for once:
Simon Woolley, a crossbench peer who founded Operation Black Vote and formerly chaired the government race disparity unit’s advisory group, said he was “appalled”...


Woolley called on party leaders to make the training mandatory for their MPs, warning that politicians who pushed back on it were demonstrating their “inability to move to the 21st century”.

Unlike the race hustlers constantly banging on and on about slavery, eh, Simon?
