'Police abuse driver' not guilty
 
Ronald Klos
Ronald Klos said he was considering action against Tayside Police
A businessman caught speeding at 156mph has walked from court after being found not guilty of giving abuse to police officers days after his court case.

Ronald Klos, 38, was in January banned for a year and fined £3,000 following the speeding offence in Fife.

The building company director from Kinross was accused of threatening police after his conviction.

But at Perth District Court, he was found not guilty of abusing officers in Kinross on 14 January.

Police evidence 'holes'

Klos told the court he was taunted by one police officer before being arrested, taken to cells and later charged with breaching the peace.

Justice of the Peace Stephen White cleared him after highlighting "discrepancies" in the police evidence given against him.

"Had a policeman wanted to make something up and bring you to task for no reason he might have made a better job of it," Mr White said.

"The police evidence does have a lot of holes in it."

Outside court, Klos of Sandport Gait, said he would take advice on whether to pursue action against Tayside Police.

Hi All... thanks for all your posts with regards to 'Deviant Behaviour Of The Police'.

 

These guys never stop, do they? 

 

With regards to Magpie's post and the businessman, Ronald Klos being cleared of abusing officers during his arrest, I would sincerely like to know what those 'discrepancies' in the police evidence were, that subsequently cleared him.

 

Fair enough, Mr Klos shouldn't have been doing the speed he was, but if indeed, it's true that he was taunted by officers following his arrest, then yes, he should quite rightly seek legal advice on whether to pursue the matter.

 

Then again, cops, who are mightier than thou, have the right to bend the rules.  Don't they??

COPS STAY SILENT ON JULY 7 CLAIMS

POLICE were last night passing the buck over a man's claims that he warned them about two of the July 7 bombers nearly two years before the attacks.

Computer specialist Martin Gilbert-son, 45, claimed he told West Yorkshire Police of his fears about Mohammad Sidique Khan and Shehzad Tanweer.

He was working at an Islamic bookshop in Leeds and became alarmed at some of the talk he heard.

But he claims police told him to POST any relevant material to the force HQ in Wakef ield.

West Yorkshire Police said the July 7 inquiry was being handled by the Metropolitan force.

The Met said the man's claims were a matter for West Yorkshire Police.

Hi Hammer6... thanks for your post with regards to 'Deviant Behaviour Of The Police'.

 

Police respond to 'sexist' charge
Tracking devices could be fitted in police vehicles in Leicestershire as part of planned improvements following criticism broadcast in a documentary.

Leicestershire Police have drawn up a 31-point action plan to tackle claims of "chauvinistic behaviour and dereliction of duties" in the force.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said there was an ongoing investigation into allegations.

The report comes after concerns were highlighted by a Channel 4 programme.

Disciplinary enquiries

David Grenz, chairman of Leicestershire's Police Federation, said he was in favour of the recommendations, including the tracking devices.

"The devices could make deployment more efficient and it may make attendance times for officers to get to incidents better.

"Also there is a good side to this regarding the safety aspect. Personnel in the control room can actually tell where an officer or police vehicle is and if they were in trouble, help could be directed to them," he said.

He added his main reservation about fitting tracking devices was over the information generated by them and how this might be used in complaints and disciplinary enquiries.

 

Leicestershire Police said they had drawn up the action plan after consulting rape crisis workers, magistrates and victims of crime.

 

If the plan is approved by the police authority, the police will go back to these groups and gather further comments and opinions.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Call me skeptical, but I somehow think this is one plan that won't be approved, although I think it should be, and in forces all over the country too, for that matter. It's much like the lie detector issue - if the police have nothing to hide, why would they object to their patrol vehicles having tracking devices?

Detective 'grabbed girls' necks'
Former detective Jonathan Fox
Jonathan Fox retired from the police force in November 2005
An off-duty detective grabbed two teenage girls by the throat and shouted abuse after one of them threw a small twig which hit his car, a court heard.

Detective Superintendent Jonathan Fox, 51, of Hampshire Police, assaulted the girls in a "few moment of madness", Chichester Magistrates' Court was told.

The court heard he swore at the girls and gripped their throats and arms.

Mr Fox, who retired from the police in November, denies two counts of assault, claiming he grabbed one girl's jacket.

Magistrates were told the officer "led and inspired many" during his years with the Hampshire force.

'Shouting and swearing'

The court heard the girls, aged 14 and 15, were walking along Portsmouth Road in Southampton on 14 May 2005 when the younger of the two "discarded" a foot-long stick which "collided" with the Renault Laguna.

The hearing was told Mr Fox's unmarked car mounted the pavement, damaging the vehicle, which the girls said had not been damaged by the stick.

The younger girl, who is now 16, told the court from behind screens: "The car screeched and made a banging noise.

"He got out of the car and slammed the door and shouted and grabbed my arm.

"He was walking towards us and shouting and swearing."

'Downplay your misbehaviour'

She said when the other girl swore at him, and told him to let go of her arm, he grabbed both of their throats.

Defence counsel Janice Brennan accused the girl of deliberately throwing the stick at the car, knowing it was likely to cause it to skid.

She said: "You are trying to downplay your misbehaviour that night."

Miss Brennan said Mr Fox grabbed the girl's jacket and "held her at arms length".

The case was adjourned until Tuesday.

-----------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE:

 

BBC News Tuesday, 4 July 2006

 

Officer cleared of grabbing girls
Former detective Jonathan Fox
The former detective always said he only held on to one girl's jacket
A former detective superintendent responsible for child protection cases has been cleared of grabbing two teenage girls by the throat.

Jonathon Fox, 51, was alleged to have assaulted the 14 and 15-year-olds by the roadside on 14 May 2005.

Chichester Magistrates' Court had heard claims that the ex-Hampshire officer "strangled" the girls after a thrown twig hit his car in Southampton.

He was found not guilty of two counts of assault on Tuesday.

I wonder, had I not been a police officer, would I ever have been prosecuted for this?
Jonathon Fox

Mr Fox, who retired in November, claimed he had only "clasped" the left shoulder of the 14-year-old's jacket.

He said he had held her at arm's length to stop her hurting herself or him after she "slyly flicked" a "missile" - which he assumed was a bottle - at his car.

He denied having any "deliberate or direct contact" with the other teenager.

The magistrates accepted his defence, and chairman of the bench Dennis Leonard said: "There's no doubt in our minds that the incident in question was precipitated by one of the complainants throwing an object at your car, causing you to lose momentary control.

"We find the evidence of the three prosecution witnesses to be contradictory and not credible and there are glaring inconsistencies in their accounts."

'Excellent service record'

Outside the hearing, Mr Fox said: "The last 14 months have been the worst of my life. I just feel that this is a tragic waste of a good career. I wouldn't have retired from the police service had this not happened.

"But, nevertheless, I will endeavour to carry on serving the community in some way in the field of expertise that I have.

"I wonder, though, had I not been a police officer, would I ever have been prosecuted for this?"

Ian Readhead, deputy chief constable of Hampshire Constabulary, said he was pleased that Mr Fox, a "highly-regarded" detective, had been cleared.

He said: "Detective Superintendent John Fox is a long-standing and highly regarded senior police officer, who had an excellent service record with the constabulary prior to his retirement in November last year."

FORCE KEPT SECRET OF SICK COP
STALKER 2 NEWS SPECIAL
 

CRAZED cop John Kelly's hate campaign against his ex-wife was

ignored by his colleagues.

 

Kelly, who later tried to saw off Audrey McDowall's head, was

repeatedly reported to his bosses as he bombarded her with letters,

phone calls and text messages.

 

Kelly, 45, threw stones at Audrey's window, shouted through

her letterbox and threatened suicide.

 

Complaints about him were probed by Dumfries and Galloway

Police's professional standards unit, then headed by

Superintendent Kate Thomson.

 

But the unit did not inform the procurator fiscal about the

string of serious allegations.

 

Instead, Kelly, who was sentenced to 12 years in jail after

admitting attempted murder, was advised by his bosses to have

counselling and to stay away from Audrey.

 

One police source said: "The fiscal's office is unhappy at this.

"They should have been informed, given the zero tolerance policy

on domestic violence and the allegations against a

serving police officer."

Thomson is now part of a review team examining the force's handling

of the Kelly case.

A former senior cop said:

 

"How can Thomson's role in these matters be properly investigated

when she's part of the review team?"

A spokeswoman for the Dumfries & Galloway force said:

 

"The review will be subject to scrutiny by the deputy chief constable

to ensure all relevant points have been addressed.

"If a complaint is received about the conduct of any person,

regardless of whether that person is a police officer, the

circumstances will be investigated and action taken as appropriate."

SLEAZE COP IS INTERNET PAEDO ACE
By Roger Insall

A DETECTIVE exposed by The People for sending sleazy emails to a girl of 15 was a member of a national squad tracking internet paedophiles, we can reveal.

And divorced Dominic O'Brien's current job includes responsibility for a squad dealing with child protection.

Until recently he worked for the National Hi Tech Crime Unit, which combats cyber crime, including child abuse using chat rooms.

Detective Inspector O'Brien, 39, was suspended by Sussex police after we revealed last week how he bombarded the girl with smutty messages.

He met her after nailing her wealthy father's gun killer.

O'Brien was picked for his specialist role because of his computer skills and expertise in tracing internet perverts.

WHY QUICKIES ARE THE NEW HOT SEX? TOO BUSY TO BONK?
 
HOW TO HAVE SEX LIKE YOU'VE JUST MET IN THE TIME IT TAKES
TO BOIL A KETTLE...

Standing positions make it easier to re-adjust if you get surprised

WHEN you first get together, you can't keep your hands off each other.

 

A steamy look at a party or an accidental-on-purpose brushing of legs

under a table has you hailing a cab in no time.

 

But once you've been together for years, sex is likely to be relegated

to the back-burner.

 

Familiarity doesn't necessarily breed contempt, but it can breed boredom.

 

The mystery is gone, you've seen each other at your worst and life

gets in the way - work, the kids, DIY and the dishes all conspire to

push that passion fix lower and lower down the priority scale.

 

The main obstacle to frequent sex is the idea that it has to be a

marathon love-in.

 

But satisfying sex need take only minutes.

 

Whether you've been together 50 days or 50 years, a "quickie"

will give you that just-met thrill and you can find the time

wherever you are.

Think of it like fast food - naughty but very nice. Here are some

hot tips to get your heart-rate soaring.

Have an affair..

..as long as it's with your partner! Affair sex is rarely dull, which is

why so many people risk so much to play away.

 

One of the main reasons it's exciting is the fact that you have so

little time together you make the most of it.

Imposing the same time restrictions in a long-term relationship will

recreate that excitement - without the potentially disastrous

consequences.

Make lots of dates to meet outside the home. Seeing your other half

for a quick lunch in the week will mean you savour your time

together.

And take a tip from illicit lovers when it comes to technology.

 

Rather than saying, "Can you pick up some milk?" they use mobile

phones to send X-rated messages or even have phone sex.

Also, why not log on to an adult chatroom as if you were strangers

and make rude suggestions? By the time you actually meet, you'll be

so dying to get it on, it'll all be over in seconds.

Go public

ALWAYS having sex in your own bed may be comfortable but it

features low on the excitement scale.

 

It's the very fact that you're not supposed to have sex outside

the home that makes it appealing. After all, forbidden fruit is

always the sweetest.

But the first rule of risque sex is, be discreet.

 

Sex in public places is illegal and while the possibility of

being spotted may give you a thrill,it will soon die down

when you're being bundled into a police car, adjusting your

Ann Summers thong.

The second rule is, you don't have to go the whole hog.

 

In crowded places, use the situation as an aphrodisiac.

 

Push your hand under your partner's shirt or top at the cinema,

stroke their inner thigh with your stockinged foot under a table, or

discreetly stroke their bottom at a party.

 

Then whisper something wicked in their ear. Your anticipation levels

will shoot sky-high in no time.

Dress with intent

REMOVING clothes will slow the whole thing down, plus being caught,

literally, with your pants down would be an embarrassing experience.

 

So avoid awkward belts, wear skirts and trousers with zips rather

than buttons and leave off underwear. The whole thing will go a lot

more smoothly.

Assume the position

ON the whole, quickie sex lends itself well to standing positions -

either facing each other (depending on your height difference) or

from behind.

 

That way, it's quicker to readjust yourselves if you're suddenly surprised.

Get a little help

SURPRISE your partner by whipping out a sex toy.

 

Check out your local sex shop for pocket-sized, discreet items,

from an ultra-quiet micro-vibrator for women to a vibrating penis ring,

which can satisfy you both. If you're shy, buy online at:

 

http://www.bedroompleasures.co.uk

You can even get toys disguised as lipsticks, pens and even

mobile phones! But check them out for noise before you buy.

 

And if you're flying off for a dirty weekend, pack them in your

suitcase to avoid giving airport security a thrill.

Cut the O-bsession

YES, it's good to have an orgasm but don't look at it as the be-all

and end-all.

 

The aim of sex is to enjoy yourself and that can mean teasing

each other into a simmering state of excitement -to be concluded

later in the day.

Why it's good for you

THE phrase "use it or lose it" applies to everything, sex included.

 

So the more quickie encounters you have, the more your libido will rise.

 

And the more often you become sexually aroused, the more you'll

release mood-lifting brain chemicals.

 

Not only that, frequent sex is good for your relationship. During sex

(and even cuddles) you release a hormone called oxytocin, which

helps couples bond emotionally.

WHEN YOU HAVE MORE TIME

Here are three naughty things to try:

RUDE FOOD Food and sex are both sensual pleasures so why not

combine them by eating your favourite food off parts of your

partner's body... strawberries and cream, anyone?

HOME MOVIES Strictly for those in long-term secure relationships

(you don't want to end up on the internet!).

 

Making your own erotic films can be a huge turn-on, just make sure

you lock up the tapes afterwards.

BONDAGE Don't worry, we're not talking black leather and whips.

 

This can be lots of fun but is something you should only try with

someone you trust completely.

 

Grab an old pair of tights or some silk scarves and practise a bit of

role play.

 

And if you don't find it sexy, at least you'll have a laugh trying it.

YOU'VE BEEN FRAMED

WHEN student Jennifer Pope and two of her friends became embroiled in a melee after leaving a concert in London’s Finsbury Park, they also found themselves in an altercation with several police officers, triggered, it seems, by a sudden police horse charge.

Jennifer, 20, panicked; and when she remonstrated after one of her friends was hit and pinned to the floor, she too found herself surrounded by police, thrown against a wall, handcuffed and placed in a van with her friends to be taken to Tottenham police station.

She was accused of kicking a female PC and charged with assault and drunk and disorderly behaviour. The “drunk” charge was soon dropped when Jennifer, a chief inspector’s granddaughter, offered to be breathalysed. She had not been drinking.

None of the trio had ever been in trouble with the police before and all three were incredulous at their treatment.

Fortunately Jennifer’s father managed to get hold of CCTV footage of the incident from the local authority and this was produced in court. After a three-day hearing, all three were acquitted. The footage had shown Jennifer distressed and pinned to a wall but certainly did not show her kicking a WPC.

Jennifer made a formal complaint about the incident, their detention at the police station and the fact that after one of her friends was acquitted one of the officers said in the courtroom in front of Jennifer’s father: “Don’t worry. We will get the them next time.”

After studying the CCTV footage, the magistrates evidently preferred Jennifer and her friends’ account of events to those of the nine police officers in court. But the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPPC), which oversaw the investigation by the Metropolitan police, wasn’t convinced.

In a report sent to the Pope family, it concluded that the CCTV footage was inconclusive; and that while the officers may have changed their accounts when they saw the footage in court, that was only because it jogged their memory.

As for the threat “Don’t worry we’ll get them next time”, the ofticer was apparently talking about it being her turn to buy the coffees!

EXCLUSIVE: I'M NOT FILMING UP SKIRTS I'M SPYING ON AL-QAEDA
 
EXCLUSIVE Anti-terror cop held over hidden camera antics
By Jeff Edwards

 

A DETECTIVE was arrested for allegedly filming up women's skirts with a

hidden camera.

 

The married anti-terrorist officer told police he was working undercover to video al-Qaeda suspects. But back at the station they found his camera had close-ups of bottoms and knickers.

He was nabbed by a plain-clothes team watching out for perverts and paedophiles in Trafalgar Square, Central London, on Tuesday. A police source claimed the man, a Scotland Yard surveillance expert with more than 20 years' experience, had the camera hidden in a sports bag. He added: "The officer used surveillance techniques for his own perverted hobby - taking pictures up women's skirts.

"It was one of the year's hottest days and Trafalgar Square was packed with young women in skimpy clothes. When officers moved in, he told them he was a cop on an anti-terror operation.

"But the pictures were not of terrorist suspects planning a bombing, they were of knickers."

The officer was arrested on suspicion of causing a public nuisance. He has been suspended.

Ex-Pc sexually assaulted student
 
A former police officer has been jailed for sexually assaulting a university undergraduate as they slept in the same bed after a night out.

James McKenna, 29, of Flackwell Heath, Bucks, who denied the charge, had told Reading Crown Court he was given a date rape drug that blocked his memory.

McKenna, was a police officer at High Wycombe Police Station, but resigned before the court case began.

On Friday, he was sentenced to 18 months in jail.

The jury heard how on the night of the assault, 28 September, the victim had invited McKenna to stay at his house to save him a taxi ride home.

McKenna said he had no memory of the events up until he arrived at a police station the next morning.

'Custodial sentence justified'

Patricia May, defending, said McKenna had never shown any homosexual inclination and denied committing the assault.

Judge Stanley Spence told him: "You visited a deliberate sexual assault on a man who was asleep.

"You said it was the result of a date rape drug being slipped into your drink and you couldn't remember anything, but the jury rejected your account.

"This offence was so serious that only a custodial sentence is justified for it."

McKenna's stepfather, who did not wish to be named, said outside court that he would do all he could to clear his son's name.

McKenna will remain on the Sex Offenders' Register for the next 10 years.

Hi Magpie and Hammer6... thanks for all your posts with regards to the ever increasing topic of 'Deviant Behaviour Of The Police'.

 

Does a police uniform (along with a panda car) automatically give 'acceptance' to such deviant behaviour?  Or is a just a complete abuse of position and power, not to mention trust, that allows the people who are there primarily to serve and protect the public, to behave the way they do?

 

Either way, it's not difficult to understand why the public has such a lack of trust in our police forces.

 

Officer admits indecent assault
A police officer has admitted indecent assault and assault against a woman.

Pc Robert McClenaghan, 43, based in Telford, Shropshire, was ordered to register as a sex offender after pleading guilty to the offences.

Four other charges against him, two of rape, one of indecent assault and one of attempted indecent assault - are expected to lie on file.

He was bailed to an address in Blackpool, Lancashire, and will appear for sentencing on 22 September.

The officer was suspended from duty by West Mercia Constabulary in June last year.

An inquiry into allegations made against him was managed by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).

The West Midlands' Commissioner for the IPCC John Crawley, said: "The IPCC will now discuss with the force whether there are misconduct issues to be considered against this officer.

"Once our deliberations are concluded and we have agreed matters with the force, we will provide further information on the outcome."

The West Mercia Police force was not available for comment.

Cop beats speeding rap

By JOHN SCOTT

A POLICE driver filmed speeding at 124mph will NOT be prosecuted, it was revealed last night.

PC Chris Newsome beat a rap despite also hitting 91mph in a 40mph zone as he took a motorist to a police station for a breath test.

 

But the case sparked fury and claims of double standards when it emerged the suspect he was carrying WAS taken to court and punished.

Robert Cox, 52, had refused a roadside test after being stopped in Swadlincote, Derbys. PC Newsome then hurtled him 15 miles to Derby for a test at the station, knowing the alcohol reading would drop as time passed.


Vauxhall Omega ... suspect cowered in back seat
Vauxhall Omega ... suspect cowered in back seat

Mr Cox cowered in the back seat as the Vauxhall Omega hit 124mph on a 70mph dual carriageway.

He was later banned for 15 months and fined £400 for refusing both tests. But the Independent Police Complaints Commission recommended the PC be charged too, saying he had shown clear double standards and his speeds were unjustified.

Mr Cox said the police “procrastinated” and let the inquiry lapse for over six months, meaning it became too late to take it to court.

He said: “It is ridiculous he was not prosecuted. If he’d sneezed or had a puncture the car would have been out of control. I feared for my life.” Road safety charity Brake said: “Police must never put lives at risk.”

PC Newsome insisted he was in control of the journey — recorded on the car’s video equipment — because he was an advanced driver.
