    The Real Line of Duty-Prime.

    https://www.imdb.com/video/vi3808019993/?ref_=tt_vi_i_1

    Between 2012 and 2021, hit BBC drama Line Of Duty told the story of a fictional anti-corruption unit that famously went after bent coppers. Now for the first time, the senior police officers behind the real life sting operations re-open the casebooks to reveal the methods used to uncover corruption and secure convictions. They take us back to the crime scenes, show us the operations in detail, how they gathered the evidence, discovered the guilty and built the case that led them to jail. The Real Line Of Duty uncovers the wider story of anti-corruption units: why and how the Metropolitan Police turned the torch on their own.

    George Davis.

    A man who was "fitted" up by the Police for am Armed Robbery he did not commit in 1974. There was always a suspicion that the reason some of his testimony at trial was less than convincing was that, in reality, at that time he was carrying out a different armed robbery.

    Hands up-who believes the Police at that time planted evidence in this way? Me.
    But who believes that the Police chose random innocent people, as opposed to known criminals? Not me

    In 1976 he was released, and given a fresh start. According to him, at this time he "started" hanging out with Criminals, and within 18 months was caught and sentenced for a new Armed Robbery.

    People can romanticise this sort of crime. Much easier to romanticise this sort of stuff when you haven't had a sawn off shotgun in your face

    Wow, I remember the whole thing well, especially an Ashes Test which had to be abandoned as the pitch had been vandalized in protest.

    I was working in East London at the time & it seemed that every blank wall was daubed with "FREE GEORGE DAVIS" slogans.

    I can remember the "Free George Davis" campaign, but very little of the detail.

    I was reading something the other day, which suggested that some officers held the view that it was ok to fit someone up for a particular crime, as long as they were guilty of something.

    Ashes 1975: Vandals force the abortion of a thriller at Headingley
    August 19, 1975. Australia needed 225 to win on the final day with seven wickets remaining. And the spectators were robbed of a promising thriller when a group of vandals dug holes on the wicket and poured oil on the pitch. Arunabha Sengupta looks back at the incident in Headingley which cost £8,000 in gate receipts and scorecard sales.



    England captain Tony Greig (left) and Australian captain Ian Chappell survey the damage done by vandals that brought the 1975 Ashes Test at Leeds to an abrupt end.

    George Davis was most certainly not innocent.

    Just innocent of 1 particular crime.

    Who was given a 2nd chance in 1976. And spat in the face of all those who supported him-like his Wife, who promptly divorced him.

    Convicted for Armed Robbery 1978. Released in 1984. Convicted again 1987. Pleaded Guilty both times

    Kill Zone: Inside Gaza - Dispatches-CH4



    A raw and unflinching look at how the lives of millions have been uprooted and destroyed since the events of October 7th 2023 - seen and told through the eyes of children, journalists and doctors as they experience and witness breathtaking horrors. Filmed over 200 days by a team of Palestinian journalists and filmmakers across Gaza, this documentary hears heart-breaking testimony: from children, as they recount inconceivable horrors; from doctors at work in overcrowded hospitals that are barely able to cope with the huge number of injured people; and from civilians as they are forcibly displaced from north to south Gaza. As vital services break down in Gaza and food is scarce, this film examines the toll of Israel's military campaign

    I watched that ^^^^ and it was horrifying, beyond awful.

    It HAS to stop, right now. Thousands - literally - of innocent women & children suffering horrible deaths. One such death here in the UK & it would be front page news, in Gaza, it seems the world does not care, & the West continue to supply the weapons that do the killing.

    It is hard to believe that this could happen in 2024.
    It doesnt even seem to figure very much in the news any more.

    Yes.

    And let's remember the death toll in Gaza is around 32,000 last I heard. That's roughly ten times the number killed on 9/11...


    9/11 was probably the biggest news story of my lifetime but Gaza is not even on the front page most days.

    Even when this bit eventually stops, it is hard to imagine what the future has in store.
