He ain’t heavy, he’s a cop


Another case of Police giving people the bash, and seeing as two cops (the one using a dog as a weapon and the one shooting randomly at fellow cops) both walked free (cops walking free from charges – how very usual), I doubt these cops will get convicted. You have to beat a woman on video and then try and destroy the evidence before you’ll get a suspended sentence I guess, although you have to say, 4 cops beating on one person is almost Australian.

Officers in court over attack claim
Four police officers have been charged over the alleged bashing of a man in police cells at Whakatane.

Police said yesterday the male officers had appeared in court and faced a range of charges, including assault with a weapon.

"There are multiple charges on some officers which arise out of the same incident," said Bay of Plenty district commander Superintendent Gary Smith.

He would not go into detail about the nature and number of charges each officer faced.

The four were granted interim name suppression at the appearance in Whakatane District Court late on Wednesday.

oops, has bomber not realised that they two cases mentioned were heard in front of the court of new zealand, not a police court, and that they were being prosecuted by the crown. therefore, you can have no argument that they have been favoured - they were tried in front of the same court anyone else is.

I am fully aware that both cases were being held in Court, but there are many members of the public who will give the cops the benefit of the doubt (you are programmed to as a child) so it doesn't surprise me at all that these cops were let off, what it shows is how badly we need an independent police complaints authority that can fully inquire about an incident independently and direct any prosecution based on its findings. Didn't those white cops who beat Rodney King get off from a Jury as well?
