"Jersey's Police Thugs Seriously Assault Kids - UPDATE"
When Getting Home Safely
Is Just Not Possible In Jersey!
The Story Is At The Link Below
I have received a progress report from Maria Le Fustec about her encounter with the Jersey Police in conjunction with the above incident.
Maria is impressed and delighted with the manner in which DI Mark Smith and his colleague are looking into matters, and the way she has been treated. Such treatment is in complete contrast to the deplorable way in which she was treated by Sergeant McDonald.
MARIA'S EMAIL IS BELOW
Went to the Police station at 11am this morning 19/12/2011. Saw DI Mark Smith and another officer, Mark something or other. Both plain clothes.
They were very pleasant and helpful. DI Smith had printed out my statement from your blog as I suspected he might :)
He was genuinely shocked when I told him that Sergeant McDonald had told me that I could not make a complaint as I am not the victim, “if the victims wanted to complain then my statement could then be taken” McDonald had told me. DI Smith said that “that is never the case”. He said “you can make a complaint about anything, and at any time”. He said “I will be emailing McDonald shortly too talk to him”.
DI Smith is speaking to Paul in the first week of new year to take his statement and he wants to speak to my son as well. He said it is a very serious complaint and will be handled as such, and will be going to a police complaints authority commission which is made up of advocates and states members in the island who will read absolutely everything and be totally impartial!!
DI Smith is calling me back in next week to go through my statement and sign etc. Today was a preliminary meeting to discuss my statement to you which was published on your blog. He took that as an open letter to the Chief of Police, and I said, “that was going to be my next step as I got nowhere three times”. I said, “had you not read Ian's blog I still would not be getting listened to”.
He asked “what made me go to you?” I said “anger, and the fact I know Ian gets listened to, and that you reading this and calling me is absolute proof of it”. He said “he is now keeping up with the comments, and your blog”.
I added my description of PC 240 Sykes to the statement. He said “the officers involved will be given a formal notice of complaint of course”. I am also making a complaint against the officer in the unmarked car as he pushed a young girl around and Sykes partner who took his CS Gas out to use on *******!!
I said “I am a mother of two teenage boys and I am disgusted at his aggression”.
He said “do you know that the mother hasn't made a complaint yet?”. I said “I am aware she has now made a call after speaking to several people”. I said “she works for ******* and works closely with you guys and she is worried about retribution against her, or her two boys”. But she has been told in no uncertain terms she cannot let this go as it needs to come out. I said “she was waiting for a Sergeant to call her back” the last time I spoke to her last week.
Ian, I have been ill all weekend and still am, that's why I haven't made arrangements to meet with you and ******. I tried calling her after meeting the
police but I assume she was at work so I will try her later.
DI Smith said that nothing can be actioned until the legalities with the boys are out of the way, their parish hall enquiries, so that is Jan 17th if I remember correctly.
Speak soon. If I remember anything else I will let you know. I am in the shop today, so if you speak to ****** first, please let her know I will call her later.
Besides these assurances, there are still three fundamental problems in my view.
1/ The complaint will be overseen by the Police Complaints Authority Commission, who, when dealing with one of my complaints, were the most corrupt bunch of lying cheating scumbags I had ever encountered in Jersey. They were furnished with the most damning evidence and completely ignored it.
2/ The complaint cannot be actioned until the two boys have faced a parish hall enquiry. Why not? Could it be that the plan is to get the two boys to plead guilty at that enquiry and find against them therefore giving the rogue policemen the appearance of "just cause" for their actions!!!
3/ The author of the letter below has ongoing complaints against himself for perverting the course of justice and dereliction of duty!!!
HE SHOULD BE SUSPENDED FROM DUTY AT THIS TIME....
