We have been provided with this absurd decision by Sgt Darren Carr of Lancashire Police.
A victim reported to the police, malicious information that has been published on the internet about him. The comment say
“It has been reported online that <name removed> is a convicted Paedophile. All went to the CPS and all were dropped after being investigated”
The persons name has been removed by us but WAS in the original post which we have seen and is still published online! We can confirm the comment is untrue and simply posted as a means to damage someone reputation. Nothing was investigated and nothing was sent to CPS and there is no absolutely not ‘conviction’, this is all made up.
What Sgt Darren Carr said in reply was:
“I have found that although the posts may be unpleasant it still does not reach the threshold for criminal harassment”
Sgt Darren Carr thinks it is acceptable to brandish an innocent man a paedophile on the internet.
For the record, it is suspicious the person making the malicious postings is a known police informer named Paul Turner who Lancashire police appear to be protecting.

Darren Carr has now dug himself deeper stating that as Paul Turner (a self confessed police informer) said “it is reported that…“, means it is not harassment.
If YOU want to harass someone, simply add “It is reported that…” <add your harassing and malicious comments here complete with victims name>
I do not condone this but he apparently does!!!
I have reported PS Darren Carr for a criminal offence under S26 of the Criminal Justice and Courts Act 2015.
Corrupt or other improper exercise of police powers and privileges
(1) A police constable listed in subsection (3) commits an offence if he or she—
(a) exercises the powers and privileges of a constable improperly, and
(b) knows or ought to know that the exercise is improper.
(4) For the purposes of this section, a police constable exercises the powers and privileges of a constable improperly if—
(a) he or she exercises a power or privilege of a constable for the purpose of achieving—
(i) a benefit for himself or herself, or
(ii) a benefit or a detriment for another person, and
(b) a reasonable person would not expect the power or privilege to be exercised for the purpose of achieving that benefit or detriment.
I have had it with Lancashire Police. I have tried to give them the benefit of the doubt but they seem to all be spineless cowards. I will now seek legal redress against every single officer involved in the criminal & civil courts.
