Greater Manchester Police's Professional Standards Branch has referred the incident for review by the Independent Office for Police Conduct, due to previous contact.Yes, this is the case of the three year old boy tragically mauled to death by out of control dogs...which were already known to the police.
Hairdresser Kia Walker, who was just 17 at the time, said dogs ran out of a house and charged at her.
Ms Walker, now 19, told MailOnline: 'I didn't drop the investigation. I was told there wasn't enough evidence. 'I asked if there was anything else they could do and they said no because there wasn't enough evidence.'
The image of her wound is so horrific it has to be blurred out...but it's apparently not 'evidence'.
A relative added: 'The dogs have charged towards her and ripped her arm. She used to go walking all the time but now she doesn't. It was taken to court but then for some reason it got dropped and nothing was ever done with it.
'The incident happened on April 10 last year and another woman posted online she too had been set upon in the same spot.
She said: 'Absolutely heartbreaking. I knew this would happen one day. 'The police are useless. I was attacked by one of this man's dogs. I couldn't walk for over a month. 'The police did nothing. No further action letter I got. There were numerous times people have been bitten off different dogs up there. That poor little boy.'
Why would police not take action, or begin to take action and then drop it?
Inside they discovered around £50,000 worth of farm and building machinery, which officers believed to be stolen, as well as two dogs that have been taken into care by the RSPCA.
Ah. I think we all know what we're dealing with here, don't we?
GMP Assistant Chief Constable Scott Green said: 'It goes without saying that this news will have had an impact on the community. I can reassure members of the public...
...that any criminal offences identified by our enquiries in relation to this incident will be dealt with accordingly by ourselves and our criminal justice partners.
You didn't last time. Why should we believe you now?
'We are aware of speculation on social media and ask that members of the public and the media refrain from engaging in speculation at this time until our investigation is complete and any subsequent criminal proceedings have concluded.'
Well, I'm speculating all I want. I'm speculating that there's some officers with very uncomfortable times ahead, and I hope they suffer a little of the blind panic that the victims of these mutts felt as they charged towards them.
And I'll bet you anything you like that this house was marked on the police computer systems as a known dangerous spot (it was reported initial responders turn up with riot shields for protection - how would they know to do that?) yet no action was taken.
And a three year old child is now on the conscience of everyone who allowed it to be a danger for years...
