DC McTear of Cumbria PSD was requested to investigate an assault by DI Melvin of Lancashire Police.
DC McTear agreed that DI Melvin pushed me ‘with force‘ causing me to ‘step backwards‘ yet still said the Inspector has ‘no case to answer’.
This is a clear case of the police protecting their own. Even across different forces. The IPCC are investigation and will be given full access to this.
Within his report, DC McTear revealed DI Melvins comments from his (sworn statement) statement where he lied saying ‘I did not touch him’, a clear and blatant lie as proven on the video that my wife recorded below. He in fact said, he put his hand up towards my shirt and I stepped backwards!
So, even though DI Melvin lied and DC McTear reported that he forcefully pushed me backward, why did the dodgy cop from Cumbria PSD dismiss the complaint that is clearly a criminal act of assault (‘a battery’). As confirmed by an Inspector in the Met Police, this is at minimum, serious misconduct as DI Melvin has been proven to be intentionally lying! Lancashire police force and cumbria police force are covering this up. This is corruption.
During his investigation, DC McTear started looking into judicial case law..! (the stuff solicitors and judges use to determine cases at trial)
“Case law is law developed by judges, courts, and similar tribunals, stated in decisions that nominally decide individual cases but that in addition have precedential effect on future cases.”
DC McTear diverted from his job of an impartial investigator (where he inferred DI Melvin guilty of assault) to a defence layer trying to justify the actions of DI Melvin.
This investigation by Cumbria PSD into Lancashire Police was under advice of the IPCC. The IPCC have been informed by way of appeal and a complaint with criminal allegations has now been made against DC McTear and a private prosecution has been applied for against DI Melvin for assault.
Ironically, the case law that DC McTear attempted to use to justify the assault by DI Melvin was actually case law that would be used to help secure a prosecution. “Collins v Willcock (1984)”
I am not claiming that this assault is crime of the century, this is a simply common assault with no injuries ‘a battery’. It is STILL A CRIME.
What is very serious is the proven lying and the attempted cover up.
Assault at 33 seconds in.
