  1. Thank you for this for the record I have not lobbied for “ jail time” as you quote If people get convicted of an offence in court it is the sitting judge that sentences, not police, not cps and certainly not the local football officer the case is ongoing so I cannot comment until it has been concluded. A number of other males are due in court later this year and once the case has concluded I can then give updates into it.
  2. Again from South Wales police, the game is unrestricted travel .
  3. I genuinely was beginning to think you were just winding fellow fans up on purpose to provoke a reaction but I sadly am beginning to realise that you are so wrapped up in believing that everything about this case/ city fans travelling away are related to alcohol intake and abuse. For the last time none of the 10 fans were guilt of any offence none were risk supporters alcohol was not a contributing factor to this case all 10 are innocent fans of bcfc just like you and every other fan on this site ( except miah obviously) As a police officer on this site I have had tricky conversations with people on here, yet I can still find it in myself to apologise when I get things wrong ( and have done) my personal view is that what you previously wrote about those fans was out of order and based on no facts just assumptions . You owe them an apology , not me, not the rest of the fans on here but those you are continuing to question .
  4. There are assumptions in your comments that are simply not true. a group of 10 fans were incorrectly treated as football risk supporters , it appears to me you still seem to have issues with grasping what witnesses are saying and making massive assumptions regarding their behaviour and state of sobriety . football fans regularly stay in pubs until 14.20 before a game for many reasons, I don’t see how this is relevant or a poor choice ?? There was no escort offered to the ground by a and s officers.
  5. What a shame that there is no apology on here for the fans that you intimated were at fault? and still you continue to do that by referring to alcohol consumption and the issues it cause for police/ emergency services. let me be the first to say as a witness who was present Alcohol was not involved in this incident.
  6. I would absolutely agree, a huge difference in policing style and it deserves a mention With regards to whether they would be expected to comment I have no idea I am afraid , that would very much be down to the circumstances.
  7. I disagree as stated by the fsa everything has changed with regards to wmp policing of football. The times we have visited since this incident you could see the changes were very apparent and credit should be given for that .
  8. Not sure if that’s a compliment or not, but thank u anyway
  9. It’s what happens with things that aren’t referred to Iopc, they tend to deal with the more serious stuff, assaults/ criminal offences etc and leave the rest to the local force to deal .
  10. Yes compensation for the 10 that we’re taking them to court in an out of court settlement. Stu may be able to add more as to any comment offered
  11. My understanding is that the witness statements were taken by officers/ support staff from the wmp legal department .
  12. I am not completely aware of the exact ruling but I think that a rule has been brought in that if an officer was under ipcc investigation they would not be allowed to retire/ resign until the investigation was complete. I will need to check on that but I am sure that was going to be brought in if not already. as I understand it there was no ipcc investigation into this incident . I stand to be corrected as I wouldn’t necessarily be told , but the ipcc normally publicise an investigation.
  13. Public order offence .
