Was this just lazy and incompetent policing? Or was political ‘correctness’ at work?

A detective was rapped by his own police force after he obtaining evidence his colleagues had ‘missed’ evidence necessary to jail a thug who knocked out his son.

Pete Jackson was placed under investigation – even though he uncovered key CCTV footage that helped put Anthony Bamgbose behind bars.

It is one of a series of revelations made by the former Detective Superintendent, whose whistleblowing sparked a three year police watchdog investigation.

Greater Manchester Police closed down the investigation into the savage attack on 18-year-old student Thomas Jackson within hours of the incident.

Mr Jackson’s 18-year-old student son Thomas suffered serious injuries after the unprovoked attack, which saw him lying unconscious for five minutes

His furious father walked from his son’s bedside at Manchester Royal Infirmary – where he was being treated for two fractures to his jaw.

He immediately found the footage he says his peers had supposedly missed near Albert Square.

It showed the attacker get out of a taxi and knock Thomas out, leaving him unconscious on the road for five minutes.

Bamgbose was later jailed for 23 months after he admitted the unprovoked assault on Thomas and his friend, who had also been knocked unconscious.

But Thomas’s father Pete, then the head of GMP’s major incident team, ended up in trouble with his own force for conducting his own investigation in his own time.

The now retired officer says that he was amazed to find himself the subject of an internal disciplinary inquiry for grilling colleagues over the standard of the investigation.

The six-month probe concluded there was no evidence he had directly accessed information on Bamgbose on GMP computer systems while his anger had been ‘poor judgement’ rather than a disciplinary offence, according to an internal GMP report.

Det Supt Jackson was recommended for ‘constructive developmental feedback’.

Mr Jackson said: ‘I was disgusted by the police response to an incident which could have resulted in my son’s death and the death of his friend. I just didn’t believe there would be no CCTV in Albert Square. I walked from the MRI down Oxford Road and conducted my own enquiries.

‘I went and stood in what was left of the pool of blood where my son lay, looked up and within seconds I saw two CCTV cameras which captured the whole incident.

‘I asked the pub manager and he played the CCTV back. The first frame I saw was my son unconscious on the floor. That’s what should have happened already as part of normal enquiries.

‘The standard of the investigation was a disgrace. In fact, there was no real investigation at all. Without my intervention, a really dangerous man wouldn’t have been brought to justice’.

With officialdom’s obsessive adherence to the dogma of political ‘correctness’ and constant promotion of the status of ethnic aliens and women at the expense of true-born Englishmen, the suspicion naturally arises that offences committed by immigrants against our people are being swept under the carpet.

We pay the wages of the police through our taxes and have a right to expect them to be diligent. We also have the right to expect them not to discriminate against us by neglecting to investigate properly the many crimes committed against us by those who, in the final analysis, are only guests in our country.

Most of the innocent victims of hate crime perpetrated by immigrants are not in the position of having a close family member serving as a senior detective on the investigating force. Consequently it is all the more important that the culture, or rather disease, of political ‘correctness’ be eradicated from society and social justice obtained for all our people as quickly as possible.
