South Yorkshire Police – Corrupt And Criminal

with 5 comments

Hillsborough Disaster 1989

Although the investigation continues, there can be little doubt that there was a police cover-up and deliberate and organised fabrication of evidence over the Hillsborough disaster.

Now comes convincing evidence that the same South Yorkshire Constabulary engaged in exactly the same dishonesty over events at the so called ‘Battle of Orgreave’ during the miners’ strike in 1984.  See the BBC report here.

Never mind the ‘institutionalised racism’ that police were accused of by the Macpherson Report in 1999, it is clear that South Yorkshire police are institutionally corrupt and criminal.

Battle of Orgreave 1984

Many officers, of all ranks, must expect to receive lengthy prison sentences.

Most worrying is that this conduct cannot be confined to South Yorkshire alone.  There is a culture of close ranks, cover up and take no responsibilty amongst British police.  Of course it’s a tough job which somebody has to do and while we must support and applaud those heroic bobbies who do their duty, punishment must be severe for those who cross the line into brutality and corruption.  Only the killer Simon Harwood has been held to account for around 1500 deaths after ‘police contact’  since just 1990.

Police and public must join together to root out these criminal and corrupt cops,  whatever their rank.  They deserve long prison sentences and to live in disgrace the rest of their lives.

  1. 1500 deaths?Really Peter you know these figures include deaths we have absolutely no control over.Suicides,crashes by fleeing criminals,deaths 24 hours after any police contact,overdoses,justified shootings etc etc.The list is long but 1500 is a much better soundbite.1500 divided by 22 equals 68 a year.Just over one a week.How many people have died in hospital in that time? Or on the roads?
    I think it’s a very low number considering how many people are arrested or come into contact with police every day.

    PS-Simon Harwood-what ever you think of him-was found not guilty.

    • Harwood killed Ian Tomlinson and I don’t think anyone can seriously challenge that. That his action didn’t pass the criminal standard for manslaughter is regrettable but I am confident the civil courts will find him responsible on the balance of probabilities.

      • Harwoods actions hastened the death of Tomlinson obviously.But the next time he fell over he was a goner.As I have mentioned on here before i’m not defending Harwood,his background is shady,but relying on the civil court for justice opens another can of worms.

  2. Why has the use of Cameras and Bugs never been used on the Savile case that spans 60 Years while the Police were aware at least as far back as 1959.

  3. Well.. why do you think? The Times reports on Senior Policemen at regular tea parties at Jimmy Savile’s penthouse flat.. over a number of years. Nuff sed!
