Unfit For Purpose...

The IPCC report is finally out:
Investigators found a “frequent and persistent failure" of officers to record the crimes being committed against him, despite his "polite and ultimately futile persistence” in requesting their help.
There was also a “consistent systematic failure” by call handlers, who breached standards on recording crimes, identifying hate offences and repeat victims.
It was likely “that the perpetrators of the offences against Mr Ebrahimi, came to believe that they could act with impunity towards Mr Ebrahimi”, the IPCC report stated.
Of course they did. They were cruel and coarse and violent but they weren't stupid. Unlike the officers (now dismissed) and the Chief Con (now 'retired').

"Andy Marsh, Chief Constable of the force, apologised for failing Mr Ebrahimi “in his hour of need”.

“We’ve made many changes since Mr Ebrahimi’s murder in response to the things we learnt and identified to be in need of change,” he said.

“Taken together, these changes have transformed the way we operate and we will do all in our power to prevent a repeat of the circumstances surrounding Mr Ebrahimi’s death.”

“We must ensure this cannot happen again.”"

Is that speech lifted from the civil servants handy book of platitudes? I'm sure I've heard it, or something very like it, many times before. Every time they say "Lessons have been learnt, plans have been put in place to prevent it happening again". Yet every time it still happens again. :-(

I don't know what the answer is but I do wish they'd stop treating us like fools.

Every citizen suffers from police negligence, JuliaM. Well, everyone other than fellow plod, their chums and families, FreeMasons, politicians and Town Hall Jobsworths. Right, WC Jaded?

The poor bloke. His great misfortune was not to have sufficient leverage to intimidate the police into action: he was neither sufficiently melanated to attract the tribal support of hordes chanting 'No Justice, No Peace', nor did he have a network of supposedly related cousin-brothers to materialise from the ether when needed.

Like a fly round shit-here comes MTG from under his stone when he sniffs an anti-police post.

Yes it seems like the police failed this man so I'm not going to defend their actions. I only defend them when the armchair experts on here make unfounded and ignorant criticisms.

Jaded.

Please allow me to applaud your enduring capacity to smell the interminable shit in plod news; something of an olfactory feat, given your intimate proximity to the daily putrescence, Jaded.
