Police accountability

Denis O’Connor looked weary of the politicians on the Home Affairs Select Committee when I left him there – and that was only 20 minutes in.

The new Chief Inspector of Constabulary will be running an investigation into allegations of police misconduct during G20 protests.

O’Connor told MPs the incident in which a police officer had whacked a woman was “unacceptable”.

On coppers covering their identification numerals…

“For people not to be wearing their numbers is utterly unacceptable and that’s it. It’s very clear.”

He added: “Individuals are accountable. The route to accountability is that you know who this person is that’s standing in front of you.”

Big words but the review will let everyone off. Just wait.
