All of us who have been let down by the IPCC should sign the e-petition at the link below. There must be 100,000 persons, families and friends who have been let down by this sham of an independent organisation.

Are the iPCC going to put their statement back on their website as the court case is now over. In light of the outcome I am interested in what they had to say at the time.

I have personal 1st hand bitter experience of the IPCC ignoring witnesses, ignoring evidence, & simply handing complaints over to internal Devon & Cornwall Constabulary police professional standards units, who carry out no investiigation at all. (How can they when witnesses are not interviewed!)

There is in my experience a bias by IPCC towards & in favour of covering up police criminality & dishonesty.

I have written an OPEN LETTER to the newly appointed Police & Crime Commissioner for Devon & Cornwall Constabulary concerning the real problem of police corruption & criminality in how police complaints are mishandled & covered up by IPCC & internally by police.

OPEN LETTER to D&C Constabulary PCC may be read here http://pinkpasty.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/...

(PS: I know what police are sometimes referred to as, but our new Devon & Cornwall Constabulary PCC really is called 'Mr A Hogg'. Absoloutly No joke!)
