I Wonder Whether The Poor Sod They Arrested Agrees?

The family of Rebecca Day:

“We would like to thank the police for their hard work and our admiration goes out to them all. Our liaison officers have been amazing. They have made this very sad time more bearable with their overwhelming compassion and their support has been invaluable to us all.”We would like to thank everyone for their kind messages of sympathy.”


An inquest into Rebecca’s death was opened last week and adjourned to a later date. It heard a post-mortem examination had been carried out by a Home Office pathologist but a cause of death could not be confirmed.Police said the post mortem had been “inconclusive“. The coroner was told there are no ongoing investigations into criminality surrounding her death, despite the arrest of the 27-year-old man.

A spokesman for Humberside Polica said: “The police bail has been cancelled and the man has been released unconditionally.”

Immediate arrest before anyone even knows what happened? With all the issues such an arrest causes for the arrestee?

Par for the course, these days…

    Arrest does seem to be the default procedure for the Police these days. Wonder what happened to “helping Police with their enquiries”?

    Then again, the conspiracy theorists among us may well surmise that placing someone under arrest is an easy way of building up the National DNA Database. I couldn’t possibly comment 😕

      It is the public perception, driven and fuelled by the most communistically inclined shower of imbicilic media scumbags the world has ever seen (even INCLUDING Pol Pot and Stalin,) of what “Arrest” is.

      If he is not charged he is not arrested, and is, as it always was “helping with enquiries.”

      IF he refuses to “help with enquiries,” and the evidence at that point indicate he is an important part of the investigation, and that his release may contaminate or destroy evidence/lines of enquiry/pre warn other suspects/intefere with witnesses, etc, he may be arrested as part of an ongoing enquiry and is then “evidence” so to speak. And evidence must be preserved.

      The fact that later evidence proves him “innocent” is neither here nor there.

      THAT is what investigation is FOR.

      You lot would be the FIRST to piss your nickers in delight at being able to dis the Police if he was released, later found to be guilty but had done a runner.

      If a person has no objections to being on a database wether police or GCHQ ( the same) or spied on it merely indicates that that person is totaly worthless and has little or no self-esteem and has a non existent IQ. Nothing to Hide because I am nothing.

    We have been here before haven’t we Julia? If the police wait for the PM and she was in fact murdered then the killer has had a week to leg it or destroy his clothing etc etc.Then you can post on here saying “bungling police let killer go”.
    I don’t know the whole story here and neither do you but she was found with serious unexplained injuries and the arrested person was present.You need to understand under PACE what “reasonable grounds” or “reasonable suspicion” is when we arrest.It doesn’t mean rock solid evidence from the start.
    As for the arrested man-he would have stayed in custody for 24 hours max usually.He wouldn’t have been tortured or flogged.He would have been treated properly.Not a pleasant experience I agree but we aren’t talking Tower of London here.

    I can’t find a single report on this that isn’t unnaturally vague.

    A critically injured woman died screaming for help. No one is willing to say how, why or even what her injuries were but there’s an awful lot of emphasis on the emotions of everyone else. It’s just wierd.

    The whole thing…and especially the way it’s been reported….is disturbing.

    Tick-box scores progressively release bonuses which in turn encourages casual arrests and harm done to innocent arrestees.

    The political promise of plod being distanced from this culture was probably another lie but a bright ten year old could formulate point penalties for unreasonable detention.

      What would you have done then as the self-proclaimed King of Hindsight?

    You would not want to be a passer-by who discovers a dying person, would you?
