    Frankly and sadly to say that I am actually surprised that they found anything at all! To my observation prior to working out at the Gym and then after and as follows; the way the Officers were walking around laughing and chatting which each other, in groups by Squad-Cars others on the scene, others again in the Parking-lot, the female officers had the biggest laughs of them all the only thing they did not do is jump in the air and started to dance!!!??? A real professional oufit…..LOL!!! But the best is yet to come; prior to taking down the yellow Crime Scene tape, they all gathered at the Pick-nick table under the Coconut tree and had some take-out food and had a few more jokes and laughs. Then they left but to top it all off, they left all the garbage behind and on the Table for the wind to blow it all over the place! The whole scenario reminded me of a High-school outing and Pick nick, with the only diffrence, we were told to clean up prior to leaving! Great Police work and what a great demonstration to Joe Public, I am really impressed and feel alot safer already!

    A new culture of silence has emerged under this new government – both inside the RCIPS and elsewhere!

    How sad for us all.

      Freedom of Information?

      Not if most in Government can stop it.

      The Information Commissioner has a long up hill walk battling the forces of Government secrecy.

      Most Civil Servants, and the higher you go / older they are then the more entrenched it is, believe the public has no right to information because the have the almighty right to rule by dictatorship decree.
