Unmonitored cam with strangers
Things got very difficult when they came up with virtually nothing -- the decision was then made to lean on friends and acquaintances' of Ward, -- and have them testify to false statements and fabricated evidence -- this order was leading the police into dangerous territory; Ward still had a few powerful friends he could call upon for support, and any questions in The House Of Commons would not be welcome by the Prime Minister.The police continued to turn his friends by coercion and threats until all the selected witnesses told lies and anyone supporting him was suppressed. Justice Marshall failed to conceal his hate for Ward for bringing the scandal down on England.Firstly they gave the reason it was bad for business, then on the grounds it would sour relations.It also came about that the police would only take part if they could have a script and cases they were willing to discuss (we would be forbidden to ask anything they did not like or unexpectedly put to them of an embarrassing nature) We said no, as this would not get a proper response on air especially to cases they would prefer not to discuss.I will not bore you with their claims of unfairness on my part and the denials they continually issue to cover up their malpractice.They are at the moment enjoying mass coverage on TV programmes showing how wonderful they are, but some time ago we applied to a commercial TV station to present them with a show on ' corruption in the police force ' it was turned down.Meiklejohn warned Benson and Kurr that nosey cop Chief Inspector Clarke was getting ready to pounce.
This might shock, but it is a fact the tip of the iceberg and not a full picture of police corruption --- it goes much deeper than those figures and encompasses all ranks -- as you will see if you go to ' The Bent Cops' list, which is just a snapshot of what we have in our files. Although the Police Force was in it's formative years and malpractice was a regular event, the conviction of four senior officers for taking bribes caused the public to doubt the integrity of a force that should have been law abiding.Clarke was trapped, he'd been to Yonge's several times on invites - they were both brother freemasons.A villain, Walters also said he had bribed Clarke and had a letter proving it.From this beginning, the police were never able to shake off corruption, its smell never escaped the corridors of power even though some introduced 'sweeping' and 'special teams' to eradicate it --- they were not successful, and never have been.All such investigations have been 'cosmetic' and ' a publicity stunt' in order to allay public fears.
