The murder of a young woman could not have been prevented by police, a report has concluded.Pity no-one’s interested in whether she could have prevented it, isn’t it?
Officers had been called by Miss Skilbeck about domestic incidents nine times between May 2008 and March 13, 2011, which resulted in Spalding being arrested three times.The flat where she was eventually found dead when the inevitable happened. The flat she shared with her killer right up until the moment she died…
The IPCC said a police officer who did not submit a risk assessment form immediately after an incident on March 13 had a case to answer to for misconduct. However, it did not believe the outcome would have been different if the form had been submitted sooner.Understatement of the year….
"Police were right to arrest Gary Spalding for reported assaults on a number of occasions prior to the murder but he was never prosecuted due to a lack of sufficient independent evidence.Shocker, eh? And dimwittedness clearly ruins in the family:
Denise was reluctant to fully engage with the police."
In a statement her sister Cathy Black recognised that Miss Skilbeck "displayed behaviour typical to victims of domestic violence when emergency calls are made, including making excuses for the perpetrator and covering up their behaviour".NO! URGE THEM TO LEAVE!
She urged victims of domestic violence to call the police.
Your sister did call the police, she just refused to do anything else…
Assistant chief constable Paul Broadbent said: "Although I am consoled that officers followed correct procedures and that we could not have prevented this tragedy, the death of a young woman at the hands of a violent man in whom she placed her trust is a matter of deep sorrow for her family and friends to whom I extend my utmost sympathy."Oh, FFS! Why not just say ‘Listen up, ladies (and gentlemen)! The police can only do so much, you have to do your part as well!’..?
We are clearly raising a nation of dependent idiots.
