    All is not well in GMP Command

    The above is to link from a NARPO site and catalogues serious allegations against the GMP Command and the Mayor of Greater Manchester. It is a long read but, a very interesting one. It highlights the dangers of being a "Whistle Blower" in the GMP or Mayor's office. It explains, in some way, why I am critical of the Senior Management Teams.
  2. Here's a thread to discuss hypothetical questions and scenarios relating to the current Coronavirus position. I'm thinking along the lines of: So I have to isolate for three months but my MOT is due on Friday. How will I go about being able to use my car after the isolation is over if am unable to get an MOT appointment for a while? So go ahead and ask away and maybe we'll get some decent answers. If you would rather post a question anonymously then send me a DM and I'll post it for you whilst keeping your details a secret. You may also want to ask and answer the question yourself so please do go ahead with that or maybe you or a colleague have been asked a question that is worthy of discussion etc.
  3. So what are you doing whilst in Social Isolation or Socially distancing? Any recommendations to alleviate the boredom or to prevent the breakdown of the family coherence? Myself I've been taking things apart to see how they work and then putting them back together again. So far things I have successfully taken apart and rebuilt 1. The kettle 2. Remote Control 3. Electric Razor 4. Lamp Things I have taken apart but have failed to put back together 1. My Cat So what are you up to? And do you have a spare cat I can have?

    Brexit Discussion

    We had a big topic running for the general election , so I thought I'd create one for our next big vote as a nation. So the question is... Brexit or Bremain? Sent from my iPhone using Police Community
  5. https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/drifting-investigations-lost-safeguarding-cases-17128542 GMP are holding an urgent investigation into Computer failures creating a massive backlog of Crime reports and outstanding tasks. It is reported that there is a backlog of 42,000 Crime and other reports. They are holding the enquiry because of an HMIC's visit due in early November.
  6. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7586499/Police-chief-posted-Pronouns-Day-video-slammed-wasting-time.html I know that it is in the Mail but surely our Senior Command Officers should have something better to do. I live within the area and I have not spoken to anyone who has any support for the actions by the Deputy Chief Constable. Her officers are under staffed, under equipped, and poorly led. Officers do not deserved to be led by donkey's. I was also wonder how long Rainbow colouring has been part of official uniform epaulettes?

  10. Ian Naude: Cheshire PC convicted of raping 13-year-old girl 15 November 2018 Image copyright Cheshire Police Image caption Ian Naude admitted having sex with the teenager, but said it was consensual A policeman described as a "committed paedophile" has been convicted of raping a 13-year-old girl. PC Ian Naude, 30, joined Cheshire Constabulary "to gain the keys to a sweetshop" through access to potential victims, Liverpool Crown Court heard. The rape, which took place in his car, was filmed on his mobile phone. Footage of the attack was played to the jury. It has emerged Naude was already being investigated for sex offences when he became a student officer in April 2017. How a predatory paedophile become a PC Naude, of Market Drayton in Shropshire, was also found guilty of four charges of attempting to arrange the commission of a child sex offence and one charge of arranging a child sex offence, relating to five complainants aged between 12 and 15. The father of one, originally from South Africa, previously admitted 31 offences relating to grooming underage girls via a fake Facebook and Snapchat profile. Image copyright Cheshire Police Image caption Naude raped the girl after being called to her home to attend a domestic incident Cheshire Constabulary said Naude had passed the vetting process in October 2016 but that allegations of sex offences being investigated by two neighbouring forces in early 2017 did not get picked up. Latest news from the West Midlands During his two-week trial, Naude denied rape and sexual assault as he claimed the sex with the 13-year-old girl was consensual and that she "seemed to be enjoying it". The court was told he met the girl after he was called to her house over a domestic incident in October 2017. After looking her up on Facebook and exchanging sexual messages and photos, he returned to her home three days later. He picked her up while her mother was out and drove her to a country lane where he attacked her. Image copyright Cheshire Police Image caption Naude used names including "Bruce Wayne" and "King of the North" on fake profiles Naude deleted more than 750 photos from his phone after an "administrative error" meant he had been copied into emails relating to the police investigation into his conduct. He also concealed other devices including a second phone and a laptop in a field in Market Drayton. Cheshire Constabulary said this had "frustrated" and "set back" the investigation. Texts sent by Naude revealed a pattern, always starting conversations with "Hi, you look pretty and interesting", before quickly demanding nude images and threatening to expose girls to their friends if they refused. Image copyright Cheshire Police Image caption Naude threatened to expose his victims if they did not comply with his demands Cheshire Police's Det Ch Supt Aaron Duggan said Naude "joined police intentionally to commit this type of offending. "We know from our investigation that he's a sexual predator, a groomer and he's also a chancer." Acting Chief Constable Janette McCormick said she believed Naude had been working alone but it would be "naive" to think there were not other offenders within Cheshire Police. She has also said the force is now investigating other potential offences by Naude. Rape accused PC said girl 'enjoyed it' 'Paedophile' PC 'demanded nude pictures' 'Paedophile' PC 'raped teenage girl' Judge Clement Goldstone warned Naude he faced a "very significant sentence" and that even his defence conceded he had been "fairly depicted... as a cold, uncaring, selfish and cruel paedophile". An NSPCC spokesperson said it was "evil" of Naude to "shamelessly label it [the rape] consensual". Naude will be sentenced on 13 December. View the full article

    Who stole my dinner?

    I honestly have no answer for this and I am opening it for discussion and opinion. This stems from a conversation with a friend after a couple of beers last night. You enter a restaurant and after spending a few minutes reading the menu you make your choice. The Waiter takes your order and in good time your meal arrives looking splendid. A nice fillet steak with all the trimmings cooked exactly how you like it. You cut a piece off and eat it. At this point the door to the restaurant opens and a local rough sleeper runs in, grabs the steak off your plate and runs out with it in their grubby hands. So what are the offences and who is the aggrieved? Is it you the diner who has ordered the food and have every intention and means to pay (to my mind this would be an unwritten contract) or is the restaurant who hadn't yet received the payment for the steak? Opinions?

    I want to make a movie

    For some odd reason I find myself in possession of an action camera, a bit like a GoPro only it's an Eken. If you knew me you'd laugh at this notion. Anyway It has the facility to take pictures on a timed mode for as long as it has battery power. Today I set it to take a picture every 10 seconds whilst looking out of my home office window. It was attached to an external battery power pack so it worked for a number of hours. I now have a couple of thousand pictures 10 seconds apart. I want some software to make this into a movie but being a skinflint I want some free software. I have only done this once and I don't know if I'll do it again so I don't want to spend cash on anything in case I never do it again. Has anyone got any recommendations and links to any free software to make a movie from my stills? I tried the free version of MS Movie Maker but it won't let me save it without paying for a full version. Thanks

    Is is dinner time yet?

    Here's a conversation we've had before, more than once. So what time is dinner time? In my house we have : Breakfast - In the morning when you get up Lunch or Lunchtime - Middle of the day. A smaller meal to keep you going until the main meal of the day Dinner - Usually around 5pm to 6pm and the main meal of the day. Usually the largest amount of food in one sitting Supper - Later in the evening, usually a very light snack before retiring to bed Now I know some people say that dinner time is mid day but this is just wrong although that is my opinion. So what time is your dinner and how are your meals spread out and titled?
