QuoteThe Metropolitan Police's approach to tackling corruption within its ranks is "fundamentally flawed", an inspection by the police watchdog has concluded...The HMICFRS report said the Met's approach to tackling corruption was "not fit for purpose".According to the findings:In the past two years, the Met has recruited people with criminal connections and more than 100 people who have committed offences. Some of these recruitment decisions may have been justifiable, but the force failed to properly supervise these people to lessen the risksMore than 2,000 warrant cards issued to personnel who had since left the force were unaccounted forThe force does not know whether all those in sensitive posts - such as child protection, major crime investigation, and informant handling - have been cleared to the level of security vetting neededProperty and exhibits procedures were dire. Hundreds of items were not accounted for, including cash and drugs. In one instance, the security access code for a property store had been inscribed on the outside of the doorThe Met still does not have the capability to proactively monitor its IT systems, despite repeated warnings from the inspectorate. IT monitoring is used by most forces to enhance their ability to identify corrupt personnel...
QuoteThe inspectors found the Met:Failed to properly supervise more than 100 recruits with criminal convictions or criminal connections, to lessen the risk they may pose. Those convictions include handling stolen goods, possession of drugs, assault and theft.The Met does not know if staff in highly sensitive posts, such as child protection, major crime investigation, and informant handling, are vetted to the right level.More than 2,000 warrant cards issued to former officers who are now not entitled to hold them are unaccounted for.Monitoring of IT systems, which helps identify potentially corrupt staff, remains weaker than it should be.Hundreds of items such as drugs, cash and exhibits are missing, with the arrangements and policies for keeping them safe branded as "dire". The security code for a store was written on its door at one police station.
Quote from: Fambo Number Mive on March 26, 2022, 04:15:24 PMMan stopped and searched for wearing a coat when it was hot:https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-60882083 Sometimes I've gone for a long walk and it's been cold in the early morning but hot later on, so I ended up wearing a coat while it was hot. Sometimes I'd be wearing the coat over a tshirt. Never occured to me this would be regarded as suspicious.
QuoteDet Ch Supt Lee Hill said the force was aware of the footage, adding: "This shows only a small part of this incident and we would ask people not to rush to judgement.
QuoteAfter considering a paper application by the Met to challenge the ruling at the court of appeal, the judges refused permission. They said in a court order: "There were factual issues in this case which we resolved by reference to established principles."It is not arguable that we erred in principle and see no other reason to believe that the court of appeal would be prepared to adopt a different factual analysis."The judges also said some of the Met's proposed grounds of appeal were "hopeless attempts to challenge reasoned factual conclusions", while others involved "a misreading of one passage of the judgment, ignoring the overall context".
QuoteAccording to Mr Selchick's 41-page ruling, released on Friday, the officers had no choice but to remove Mr Gugino because he refused to leave the area after the 20:00 local curfew and did not comply with demands to move.There is no persuasive evidence that the officers "sought to push or drive Gugino to the ground", he wrote, adding that the use of force was "absolutely legitimate"."While Gugino might well have believed that he was engaged in some type of civil disobedience or, perhaps, acting out a role in some type of political theater, Gugino was definitely not an innocent bystander," he wrote.
QuoteFive Metropolitan Police officers will face a gross-misconduct hearing over the stop-and-search of Team GB athlete Bianca Williams, following an investigation by the police watchdog.The British sprinter, 28, and her partner, were stopped in their car, in west London, in July 2020.The couple were handcuffed, searched for weapons and drugs and separated from their three-month-old son.

QuoteMore than 13,000 young people under the age of 18 have been strip-searched in England and Wales since 2017, data obtained by File on 4 shows. The programme said separate data showed that two-thirds of children who had been strip-searched by the Met over the past three years were from ethnically diverse backgrounds.Taylor defended the force's record, claiming searches was based on "intelligence-led policing".

Quote from: bgmnts on May 25, 2022, 04:13:29 PMJust out of interest, is it even possible to have a policing force that isn't the physically oppressive arm of the state? The police just never seem to be a force for peacekeeping or being a part of the community and keeping people obeying the law for the benefit of the majority, it mostly just seems to be a tool used by the state to keep people submissive and unable to change the status quo. Is there precedent for a legal self policing organisation that isn't in league with the ruling class? I suppose that's just organised vigilantism I suppose.
