Policeman found not guilty of causing death by dangerous driving.

Recommended Posts

I would have thought that the CPS would make that decision, not the police...

 

The police forward all the details to the CPS.

Thats because all evidence is passed to the CPS. The CPS then decide if the person should face prosecution. The Police don't only hand over evidence when they think a person is guilty.

 

It seems to have a been a tragic accident. The officer had his lights flashing and while he was travelling at high speed the jury obviously believe that he was not at fault for the accident.

His superiors must have thought he was at fault to take the matter to court.

 

Why?

 

What would (a large number of) other people have said if they hadn't done so?

 

What would people have said if the matter had been handled by an internal enquiry which had found the policeman to be blameless?

 

Would the words 'cover up' have been heard?

 

This way, the matter was put before the court and the Policeman was tried by a jury. He was acquitted.

 

Isn't that the way things are supposed to be done in England?

Just on a point of interest, the police officer gave his work place as his address. If I was ever a defendant in court, could I give my work address and not my home address, or is this only available to the police?

The Fireman who admitted causing death by careless driving when the sirens on his fire engine scared cows who then trampled on a farmer causing him to die, should have plead not guilty.

 

If this Bobby can get off then he certainly would have.

Let's face it, he got away with it for one reason and one reason only.

Cause he was responding to an emergency call?

Close.

 

But no.

 

So was the Fireman who didn't get off.

I think he would have done if he'd have pleaded not guilty.

 

Hope he doesn't lose his job though, the Fireman.

 

Can't see him getting a custodial sentence though, unless its a suspended one.
