Damn savages etc.
Utterly sick and a deserved punishment.
Good!!
fine, fine. I understand cops may be a bit more blasé about corpses than most people, but if they can't manage some basic respect for the dead and for their relatives, they should probably go work in an abattoir.
grumpy, 2 sisters were murdered. What their family has had to go through is beyond my comprehension.

Yet another met police failing which is outrageous. When will Cressida go?
Good. Remarkable interview with their mum considering what she and the family have been through. Such dignity, I don't know if I could have done so well.
Mina Smallman is an amazing lady.
Good
I'm not sure Cressida should carry the can for what rogue officers do. Systemic failings, yes, but she shouldn't be having to issue edicts not to photograph yourself with mutilated corpses.
Gness, that was an amazing interview with Mishal Hussein.

The public need something to restore their faith in the met police. Her removal from the post, one way or another, will do for me.

Choux I couldn’t agree more.
the Everard case ws slightly different, choux, they screwed up during Couzens' vetting. I don't know of any warning signs that were missed this time out. I wouldn't grieve if Cressida went but it's not necessarily the case that a replacement would have been able to do any better.
I can see how Cressida was made a dame, the met police are little more than a pantomime in the perception of the public.

it's all very well complaining that cops are being microtrained rather than being allowed to rely on their instinct and experience and all that. But here we have two cases where cops have been allowed to use their own instincts - and have turned out to be monsters. So what's the answer exactly? To train them less and cross our fingers?
jno, if you seriously believe the "cops have been allowed to use their own instincts" you could always start a Cressida appreciation thread of your own. There is little point in my discussing this further with you.

well, you could try answering my question, but don't bother if you're busy.
Lose job yes. Lose pension yes. Shamed and disgraced yes. Jail no. In my opinion excessive. Their families have this to bare too.
I agree with david small. The loss of their jobs and pensions is surely enough punishment A prison sentence of over two years is a little harsh.

You'd both be asking for longer sentences were it your murdered daughters being photographed. Why should the judge consider what the copper's families have to bear when the cops themselves didn't consider that point?
