Virgin blogging technophobe so please bear with me.
In 2016 The Hunt Investigation Team (HIT) exposed animal cruelty at The South Hereford Hunt kennels in Herefordshire. Live fox cubs were being put to the hounds at the kennels in, presumably what was some barbaric attempt to give the hounds a taste for foxes, certainly a taste to kill.
The HIT team had obtained overwhelming video evidence, secretly filmed, of the offences along with the bodies of two fox cubs killed by the hounds at the hands of members of the hunt.
The HIT were of a mind initially not to report this directly to the police as, (because of previous negative experiences), they had no faith that justice would be served. They were apparently going to report it directly to the public through the press. However, this would likely mean that no prosecutions would take place……..and this is where I come into the story.
I had been a police constable for some 27 years, at that time working as the Safer Neighbourhoods Officer for the Ross on Wye area. I had gained some trust from some of the local ‘Hunt Monitors’ as being someone who dealt with things fairly and impartially.
The HIT made the cautious decision and asked if I would investigate the offences which I commenced on 28th May, 2016.
My investigation over the following 6 weeks went very well, perhaps too well in hindsight……….and I was removed from the case!
Over the following three years my family and I were subjected to the most stressful time of our lives in a series of bizarre events and accusations. Throughout this time I was silenced as a serving officer, punished as I attempted to blow the whistle, in fear that someone in power was orchestrating the end of my career. What also became apparent was I believe the sinister attempt by the criminal justice institutions to collapse the case rather than bring those responsible to trial.
Now retired I am free to give my evidenced account of what happened, of incredulous institutional prejudice and corruption which perhaps ended my career in naive disbelief that this behaviour still exists within the organisations that the public should be able to trust. Some of you will find what happened truly shocking, something that may have happened in years gone by…..but surely not now. How is it possible?
I will evidence how Birmingham Magistrates Court was deliberately mislead by a senior detective and of how he and other senior officers have been protected by the ‘organisation’ because of their ranks.
Most worryingly, West Mercia Police Professional Standards Department, the very people that officers and the public should be able to trust, were at the heart of this corruption and are still in place.
Having tried and failed time and time again to get these organisations to recognise failings…and simply apologise for those failings, it is now time to expose the truth to you, the people who pay for them and the people who have every right to expect the highest standards of integrity and ethical conduct from them.
I will make no apologies for naming people, as I believe exposing them is in the public interest. Miscarriages of justice have taken place by senior figures and nobody has been held accountable. Further injustices will no doubt take place if those in power do not or are not willing to listen.
