"judicial review" will not amount to a real safeguard!
But lawyers worry that promises of "judicial review" will not amount to a real safeguard for those detained. Barker says: "It doesn't make oppressive laws any less oppressive because you involve judges somewhere in the process. And if I were a judge I would think very carefully before lending my name to an oppressive process."

Shoot-to-Kill & the deadbeat press

30-09-2005 18:14

shoot-to-kill in the press
Some newspapers have carried strongly worded articles on the Met's shoot-to-kill policy since the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes at Stockwell station, but a review of their reporting prior to his death reveals a lazy attitude to police pronouncements, with the press happy to sell the public a fantasy of heroic policemen pitted against superhuman terrorists poised to strike at any moment.

Azelle Rodney murdered by Police (his murderer is still on a paid holiday)

30-09-2005 00:56

Azelle Rodney (police shot him dead). His family want justice.
Mother asks why was her son shot dead in the street by Police?
"My son, Azelle Rodney, was tragically killed on Saturday 30 April 2005 outside a pub in Hale Lane, Edgeware by an armed officer of the Metropolitan Police. Azelle, who had just celebrated his 24th birthday and was looking forward to the birth of his first baby, had been busy making plans to build a life for him and his new family."

Officer who shot and killed Azelle Rodney still on holiday as letters to Sir Ian Blair ignored (30/09/2005)
Members of the Azelle Rodney campaign are incensed that the officer who shot and killed him on 30 April has yet to be interviewed although he remains on holiday. Blair's orders to "shoot to kill" have murdered innocents, and Blair has not responded to Azelle's family.

The police must obey the same laws as everyone. Ignorant racist police should go to jail when they commit a crime such as the murder of Azelle Rodney. If bad police are allowed to go unpunished, they will continue to commit crimes. It is because we have a Prime Minister like Tony Blair that murderers are allowed to walk free. New Labour have caused the high crime rate.
