A PERSONAL STATEMENT?
First let me make it absolutely clear that I have every respect for the
many honest police officers who have to contend with difficult and
often dangerous work. They carry this out in a cheerful and helpful
manner in the knowledge that their aim is to serve the public. This
requires a special kind of person without whom no one would be safe
or be brought to justice. They do not seek publicity but are held in
high regard by the community. It is vital that the public have
confidence in their officers and co-operation with them is to
everyones advantage. That confidence is not possible unless
safeguards are in place that can be trusted by the public and the
police. I am aware of several officers that have left the force
because of the behaviour of their fellow officers. I can assure
everyone who seeks the help of a Commission or Complaints service
they will receive expensive booklets full of promises that will lead in
the vast number of cases to a cover-up. It is unlikely that anyone
in authority will take action regarding Alex's case and other innocent
victims will be trapped. My aim is to make everyone aware so that
they may protect others. In the meantime my advice is do not trust
duty solicitors or duty doctors and, I regret, Brighton police.
The use of computers and the internet give the public a fighting chance to expose much of what was previously hidden from them. At 72 I required a crash course on computers and the internet from my chess club friends and out went the old typewriter. A big thank you to all those supporting us, please keep in touch. Finally a special thank you to Melvin Steele for his brilliant work in producing this website.
