The Times has done their in investigation!!! So if they haven't got the info via a FOI request hiw have they got it?
As for 31 forces all being corrupt and letting officers off that deserves to go in the conspiracy thread.
There are more than 31 forces in the UK so perhaps it's just through FOI but they've looked at all of them? I don't know. Why don't you ask them? It might not be corruption, it could just be a culture of protecting fellow officers. If it's one account versus another would you have your fellow officer's back? Of would you let them take the flack for something. Maybe it was just banter.
I'm pretty sure not all police officer's in the US are racist but they are brother's in arms and protect each other.
Just to clarify, I'm just throwing out theories here. This case has been shocking though, and I have a young daughter. It's quite hard to go from teaching a child to respect the police... they're the enforcers of good behaviour... to telling them to not trust a police officer because they could rape and murder you. I don't give a fuck about "they're not all bad", this was one of the most shocking crimes to be carried out in this country and the guy was clearly known to be a fucking weirdo by his colleagues. If the police get a load of shit off the back of it then good if it cleans the rest of the scum out.
