Is there not a meltdown in society and law in general, in all aspects of law?
If, for instance, a man beats a woman etc and keeps her prisoner for three days and nights in my area, all the man has to say when she calls the police for help is 'she assaulted me' and the police arrest her because she is an easier target. Keeps their crime statistics looking better.
And they know she will be to frightened to testify against him in the future. Case dropped due to lack of evidence!
I am seeing a solicitor to make a complaint against my local police force. In others areas not local to where I live the police have been so helpful and I could not wish to be treated any better but the police local to me have a certain reputation, which I have found to be very true.
I am off to France for a much needed break soon. Is SO civilised out there. Feel like I am on a different planet.
I love being on this site. Is comforting and civilised. Just that my real life seems to be like something out of a horror movie!
Not very well. The solicitor I went to see was not very helpful and I simply gave up. There was a time limit which passed with regards to certain issues by that time so not alot of point. Seems like making a complaint against the police is very difficult.
I have written many letters to the local police and made alot of complaints by phone which I do feel have helped.
They turnrd up immediately the last time my ex staked out my home. As opposed to the 7 hours it took them whem I first called many months ago when I was in a desparate situation. Also,they charged him this time , as opposed to not charging him before. Even though he had smashed up my home and much worse.
He is where he belongs in custody now. Finally. So that is something. Even so, there was a big row that went on between various members of the police at the front desk a couple of hours after he was arrested the last time. Some of them STILL wanted to let him out without charge.
His trial is in March. Will keep you posted. Am flattered you remembered my tale.
