Police have admitted they took too long to respond to a call from bouncers who were restraining a man who later died, it has been revealed.And indeed, the screaming ‘Echo’ headline leaves no doubt:
An Essex Police spokesperson said: “An incident of this nature would attract a target response time of 15 minutes.
“Unfortunately, due to it being exceptionally busy that night, the response took 21 minutes.
“Given the delay, Essex Police did refer the matter to the Independent Police Complaints Commission, which referred it back to the force.
“An internal investigation did not find any misconduct in respect of officers’ actions.”So they were only ‘late’ by six minutes. Not quite the impression the headline gives, eh?
Mr Lamude’s grieving mother Pat Eaton, from Canvey , refused to comment about the police response time, but feels someone should be held accountable for her son’s death.Well, the bouncers were all acquitted, so it’s clearly not them.
The police clearly aren’t to blame.
I guess that just leaves your son, then, for getting into the sort of state that necessitates being first ejected from a nightclub and then held down by four bouncers in the wee small hours of the morning.
Or…wasn’t that the answer you wanted to hear?
I don't see how the police have any blame in this killing. A violent idiot upset four other violent idiots and they killed him quite legally according to the court. Lessons learnt, don't go to places that employ violent idiots to police the place.
The lesson learnt is don't be a violent idiot, had the silly sod not had to be restrained he would have gone home and the worst repurcussion would have been a hangover.
"I don't see how the police have any blame in this......."
Many thanks for another objective and impartial opinion, Sir Normymous.
MTG clearly has inside information on this story.Please share-perchance.

It's not my idea of a good night out, I must say...
"Many thanks for another objective and impartial opinion, Sir Normymous."
I'm objective and impartial, and it's my opinion too. Only a total obsessive could find the police in any way at fault for this.
Do you get repeat fees Melvin?

Many bow to your version of Adhan, Julia. Yet even I agree that those rising at 05.00hrs, 365 times a year to summon believers to worship infallible opinion, must know all there is to know of OCD.
Get thee back under your bridge and wait for Billy Goat Gruff.
Good evening, Penise.
Any fool could concede that you are far too clever to believe your last comment but I choose to defend your sincerity.
