    In 2002 a suspicious death investigation was opened after the body of Ms Sally White was discovered in a flat in London. Although the victims body showed extensive evidence of violence including bruising, a head injury and a bite mark on the inner thigh the pathologist, Dr Freddy Patel, ruled the death as natural causes by way of a a heart attack and the criminal investigation was closed. The man who lived in the flat went on to murder two other women before chopping up their bodies and dumping the body parts in bin bags. Dr Freddy Patel was not disciplined for this failure and went on to perform Mr Tomlinson's autopsy.

    Although Dr Patel is a fully accredited pathologist he is not a member of the Forensic Pathology Service, a group of specialist pathologists who normally investigate suspicious deaths in the Greater London area. Dr Patel does however have quite a lot of experience in dealing with deaths in police custody. In 1999 he carried out the autopsy on Roger Sylvester who died in St Anne's Hospital, Haringey after being violently restrained by eight police officers. Mr Sylvester's death was again put down to natural causes by way of heart attack and the police were cleared of any responsibility for his death. Following the coroners inquest Dr Patel was formally reprimanded by the General Medical Council (GMC) for giving false and misleading information about the case to the press.


    ^^^ The pathologist who said that he died from a 'heart attack'...like most other people who die in police custody...:rolleyes:

    where did this quote come from?

    Easily found all over the net tho, not just on a blog.



    is there a more reliable source any where? it does look like a very interesting blog which i've saved in my favourites, but it doesn't say where it gets its information from on that one.

    Dr Patel is on a Home Office register of accredited forensic pathologists, which is managed on behalf of all police forces by the National Policing Improvement Agency. Questions have twice been asked about his handling of suspicious death cases. In 1999 Dr Patel was disciplined by the GMC after he discussed the medical history of Roger Sylvester, a 30-year-old black man who died in police custody, outside an inquest hearing.

    In a separate case in January 2002, Dr Patel found that Sally White, 38, died of a natural causes resulting from heart disease. Her body was found locked in a bedroom in the Camden flat of Anthony Hardy, a 52-year-old psychiatrically-disturbed alcoholic.
    White's death was treated as suspicious until Dr Patel detailed the cause of her death as a heart attack. Hardy went on to kill two women, Elizabeth Valad, 29, and Brigette MacClennan, 34, and place their body parts in bin bags.


    I wonder if the Met asked for him specifically to do this post-mortem? :whistle:;)

  • It would be interesting to see how the case unfolds. There are some precedents that could be set with this, one which could mean the end of the stupid law that bans members of the public from taking pictures of police officers and for police officers to have their badge numbers visible at all times.

    I truly hope so! How likely is it though? They are two ways to highten transparency and accountability and behaviour like this is exactly why this is necessary... not to mention the obvious half-witted attempt at a cover up by the powers that (wanna)be.

    By protest, petition, publication, you name it, the pressure has to be continuously applied to keep these issues (including support for the protester filmed being given a mighty back hander then more beating, for speaking) from sliding under the heap of untruths doled out to mops.

    How many other individuals were attacked but without video evidence available to support their cause and no id numbers to support their case?

    ...Or has the internal bleeding this man suffered and talk of manslaughter charges been burning through the news as a distraction aimed at mops to detract from the more general issue of police behaviour and protests? I mean, they have their scapegoat now and sadly, for many mops that will suffice... "Rogue cop, he'll pay the price, case closed (because we don't want to believe the uniforms we encourage our children to respect are the very same beings....)".

  • Just read this report detailing how the Met feel that they are being unfairly treated by the press over the G20 demo's...


    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/8008846.stm


    So the police are trying to legitimize their actions at the G20 protests...

    Here are the reasons why I think the Met are talking out of their collective arses...


    1) "One of the claims about policing of the G20 demonstrations is that officers removed their numbers from their shoulders to stop them from being identified." So police people cannot wear their numbers on their high viz jackets... funny because in the photo that comes with this article you can clearly see that the policemen do have their numbers on their high viz jackets...


    2) "He said an incident when an inspector "refused" to give his number was because they did not have numbers but pips." Excuse me but there is plenty of evidence that shows that many officers did not have their number on display that day (and the next) police people have to give their id number when requested... or at least that is what the Scotland Yard says ""Where provided, epaulettes with identifying letters and numerals or insignia of rank must be worn and must be correct and visible at all times.It is the responsibility of all police officers, and their supervisors, to ensure this policy is followed."


    3) "And balaclavas had been worn to protect officers from petrol bombs, not to hide their faces, he added." Where is the evidence that anyone at the G20 demo's had petrol bombs with them... if they had don't you think we would have seen them in use? It was quite a warm couple of days so why would the police need to wear balaclavas when a) it was not cold... b) no one was under threat of having a petrol bomb thrown at them...


    The Met can try and make it seem that they are being attacked by the media... but what is happening in reality is that because the media and polices special relationship has broken down, because of the new act that does not allow the press to take photos of the police, the media has decided to (finally) start showing the British public what demonstrators have been experiencing for years... Police tactics do nothing more than turn peaceful protesters into rioters... when you treat the whole of a crowd like criminals (stop and searching protesters, surveillance, as well as kettling) when there are only a handful of people there who want to cause trouble, you shouldn't be surprised when that crowd reacts against the polices actions...


    And this is after over 100 complaints of police misconduct... a man's death... and two investigations into assault... What needs to happen before the Met accept that their tactics do not fooking work in this kind of situation... :wall:

  • Apparently the coppers involved were members of the "Territorial Support Group" ...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Territorial_Support_Group

    Who, surprise surprise, replaced the SPG back in 1987 ...


    ahh yes...when i heard they were SPG I thought 'here we go again'..you can cover a turd with icing and call it a bun..but it's still a turd.. I think it's bloody wonderful that the 'watchers' are being watched:thumbup:
