Man Bites Back
More than a hundred lawyers have resigned from the Independent (sic) Police Complaints Commission. Among their reasons they cite:
"a pattern of favouritism towards the police with some complaints being rejected in spite of apparently powerful evidence in their support;"
"cases of indifference and rudeness towards complainants;"
I wonder if anyone is surprised that even the people who must once have believed in and supported this blind and toothless watchdog have given up in disgust. Will anything be done to put things right? Well, I imagine recruiting policy reforms are in the pipeline, reforms that will ensure a more amenable staff replaces the recalcitrants.
