West Yorkshire Police, Cannabis, Politics And Misconduct

In a thinly disguised propaganda effort, setting out to demonise cannabis and cannabis users, West Yorkshire Police landed themselves in a great deal of trouble this week. A complaint has been submitted which will almost certainly have to be escalated to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC). Clearly the police have a duty to enforce the law as it presently stands. However, they have no role nor any qualification to advise the public on matters of health...

IPCC Upholds CLEAR Appeal On Complaint Against Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe

Keep Looking Over Your Shoulder Sir Bernard. We're After You! The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has upheld CLEAR's appeal on our first complaint against Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, commissioner of the Metropolitan Police.

This doesn't mean that our complaint has been successful. It means that the IPCC has rejected The Mayor's...

This is not the way to advance our cause and those responsible for organising and promoting children and...

Mayor’s Office Attempts Cover-Up Of Hogan-Howe Misconduct

Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe. Drug War Politician. Not content with calling my first complaint 'fanciful' when I presented documentary evidence of misconduct by Britain's most senior police office, the Mayor's office has now tried to suppress my further complaint of a repeat offence. In normal circumstances, once a complaint has been submitted, it is proper to regard its progress as confidential until a final determination is made. However, there is clearly an intention here not...

Recidivist Hogan-Howe Breaches Police Regulations Again

Keep Looking Over Your Shoulder Sir Bernard. We're After You! It will be no surprise that The Mayor's Office of Policing and Crime (MOPAC) has rejected my complaint against the Commissioner of the Metropolis, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe. See the original complaint here: Britain's Most Senior Police Officer Or A 'Drug War' Politician? There's no doubt that Sir Bernard was involving himself in politics when he rambled on about skunk back in January and that is forbidden...
