Oval Four: Men have convictions quashed in corrupt detective case - BBC News



From the link"Both the British Transport Police and the Home Office were warned about this police officer's corrupt methods in 1973. [Ridgewell was moved to a department investigating mailbag theft, where he joined up with two criminals splitting the profits of stolen mailbags.] They did nothing except move him to a different unit, where he continued to offend so that by 1980 he was serving a seven-year prison sentence for theft," she added.

In 1982 he died of a heart attack in prison aged 37.

"It is a travesty that these men have waited 47 years for exoneration for crimes that they did not commit. Justice has now finally been done,"


Well, quite! I think we should ask ourselves how it can be that past convictions based on evidence given in court by police officers are not immediately rexamined and (in all but exceptional cases) overturned, when those officers are found to have been dishonest.

Cops taking their own hostages as human shields against suspect who took hostage as human shield. Random hostage killed.

In "sometimes the term 'pig' isn't nearly derisive enough" news, this piece of shit effectively dispels the notion that placing pigs in public schools makes children safer. The shitball is on paid leave, cuz let's not rush to judgment here! The body slamming may well have been an entirely reasonable use of force.

I'm guessing the kid was suspended while investigations take place?

Also wondering about whether kids should be armed to protect themselves from (feral) pigs.

Lately I've noticed that the state highway patrol has been flying helicopters spaced every several miles over the freeway. I scrupulously obey traffic laws but still...I wonder about the return on investment in maintaining that many aircraft. Could they possibly catch enough violators to pay for all that? It's like that movie, Blue Thunder...

tbf I wouldn't judge the wisdom of using helicopters to monitor speeding on the highway on the basis of how much money you get back in fines. I think the fact that the police departments/municipal governments get to keep fines from traffic tickets is, in fact, a very bad thing that creates perverse incentives for speed traps and approaches to traffic that prefer to catch people only AFTER they're driving in an unsafe manner, as well as preferring to go after citizens who are less likely to get a lawyer to prevent them from paying the fine (even if they pay more to the lawyer than the fine because they're trying to avoid other consequences, the municipality/police department doesn't get that money, so from their perspective it's a loss), etc.

Their goal should be safety, not using traffic tickets to generate revenue.

So, maybe the helicopters don't generate much ticket revenue. But by contrast to cops waiting in the bushes near speed traps, they probably lower traffic speeds more significantly and thus may prevent car crashes. Car crashes cost the community a lot, in terms of loss of life, medical bills, auto and infrastructure repair, etc. If you don't catch many violators, but you've reduced violations, you're getting value.

I don't know whether the return on investment is worth it. It probably isn't. But I don't think the police should be concerned about whether they're making a profit...

Wait ... are you suggesting the traffic police might sometimes have just and honest motives?

I mean, yes, it's possible, but extreme assertions require extreme justification.
