The Shame Of The Northumbrian Police

This is what happens when police go for the easy targets and innocent people are stigmatised as a result:

Pair eliminated from enquiries

Just what do the police think the ordeal of being arrested on suspicion of murder, finger-printed, questioned and detained, has done to this couple? The brother and sister were 84 and 78yrs-old respectively. Shame on the police.

  1. Sadly they are of a generation unlikey to demand compensation for wrongful arrest but, if they did, no beoubt the Nortumbrian Police Service would pit their best against them.

  2. “Banned” is correct – look at the police comment: “…and will no longer be required to attend a police station to answer bail.” Obviously not the response of an authority which recognizes any possible slovenly procedure in thier operations and – by extension – an authority which will react to any criticism viciously.

  3. No doubt they'd say they followed correct procedures, lessons will be learned and it's time to move on. I really feel for those old folk – what they must have been through hardly bears thinking about, I hope they have family & friends around them.
