Corruption is still alive and well in the Met,
This review is from: Untouchables: Dirty Cops, Bent Justice and Racism in Scotland Yard (Hardcover)
For anyone who was naive enough to think police corruption was a thing of the past this book shows that it is not only alive and well, but thriving. Shocking cases such as that of private investigator Daniel Morgan, murdered whilst investigating local police corruption, or the Stephen Lawrence case, whose inquiry revealed, amongst other things, Masonic links between investigating officers and the father of one of the suspects, ably demonstrate that corruption within the Met is the rule rather than the exception.
On the day we learned PC Simon Harwood repeatedly lied about events surrounding his assault of Ian Tomlinson, who died shortly afterwards, this book could not be more relevant. So long as the Police 'service' remains so unaccountable, corruption, mind boggling incompetence and criminal activity will remain endemic.
