  6. Trouble vs Wall!!!!!!!!??????

    CPS always work on there being a realistic prospect of conviction before they authorise charge. I've been known to give charging authority in the past and I've certainly had more than more than my fair share of convictions and charges. Taking that evidence on its own, I'm not surprised that no further action has been taken. If it were my case I wouldn't be overly confident of charge. Is it over zealous? Probably. Is it justifiable? Maybe. And that's the problem. Missing a complainant means we're missing a whole strand of evidence that's just as important as that footage itself. There's no one who can refute any claims that officer may make about his actions being justified. I'm not saying I agree with his actions, can't say I'd have done the same myself, but I'm just trying to explain that we shouldn't be shouting 'police corruption' or cover up at the fact that there's been no further action. The NFA, on the face of it seems wholly in keeping with my expectations in terms of level of evidence required to charge. The sad fact is that each and every day lots of people get away with things they're guilty of (I'm not suggesting the officer in question is guilty of anything by the way), you've just got to accept that our laws are designed to protect the innocent man. It's frustrating sometimes, but you've just got to learn to move on.
  7. Fair play to them both. Lets hope we're not hit with the curse! Many have said it feels very different this time round... and I'd tend to agree. Lets all enjoy this 'up' section of the Bristol City rollercoaster.
