Business as usual, Police ignoring the law with a strong belief they are above it...
Maybe the IPCC is not that proud of hushing everything, worst case scenario, giving a slap on the wrist... (Be warned: 5 times and you get a blame, 5 blames and you might not be eligible for bonus).
How many murders (Ian Tomlinson for example), assaults (any Climate camp), abuses of the law (blanket stop&search, section 44) have just been pushed under the carpet or even worst returned against the victims (yeah, you were looking for trouble, taking picture of your 6yo niece on Oxford street... not sure to charge you with paedophilia or terrorism) ?
A great to restore faith in Policing by Consent... download your fact sheets, know your rights, limit your interactions with the police to the strict minimum imposed by the law (which isn't much); tell them why: "It's nothing personal but I won't be more cooperative while I don't have trust in the force. It might only be some rotten apples but when you do everything to hide them at the bottom of the basket after a while the whole basket stink". (Show/prove them that you know your rights first... just in case).
STOP: Because of Stop & Search and because it has to stop!
