A mother has spoken of the “heartbreaking” failure of her eight-year search for the truth about her son’s death in a police chase...Some 'mother' she turned out to be. She raised a car thief.
Liam Albert, 17, died a week after crashing a stolen Mazda in Surrey in 2009 following a high-speed pursuit that began in south-west London.That's all the explanation anyone not as thick as two short planks should need.
Ms John said: “What we were looking for were answers to how he died, how did the collision happen, what were the events leading up to [it]. Which will not bring my son back but at least gives us some idea.It's pretty obvious how he died, the coroner will have explained that. The collision happened because he lost control. The events leading up to it were that he stole a car and decided to not stop when the police indicated he do so.
“There’s so many questions that haven’t been answered, that, deliberately, to us it looks like, they have skimmed past. They’ve just humoured us from the beginning, I believe.Now, you've quite right here, I agree. They shouldn't have humoured you at all. They should have told you to get lost.
“We look to the police for guidance, for help, for confidence, for protection. That’s just knocked me for six.Their guidance states 'do not steal cars', they help us by chasing car thieves, we have confidence that they'll catch car thieves, they protect us against car thieves.
Emotionally it’s not going to leave us, we’re not going to get a closure.”You spelled 'compensation' wrong.
