Incompetence, Or Something More Sinister..?

Police botched their investigation into Isis propaganda that inspired the Parsons Green attacker and failed to link him to the terrorist group, The Independent can reveal.


“There is nothing to suggest he was inspired by Daesh [Isis],” the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) told The Independent.

Our investigations show that police found evidence of Hassan’s affiliation with the terrorist group, but misinterpreted the material and sent flawed information to prosecutors.

It seems the evidence referred to was ISIS propaganda in the form of ‘nasheeds’ (Islamic songs):

Charlie Winter, a senior research fellow at the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence (ICSR) at King’s College London, said he was “surprised and a little troubled” that specialist counter-terror police failed to identify the material.

“It seems they’ve dropped the ball on these nasheeds and this is problematic because it’s symptomatic of a broader unawareness of what nasheeds are, what they do and the fact they are produced in-house by Isis,” he added.

These are specialist anti-terror police, remember. Supposedly highly trained in this sort of thing.

Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, the new head of UK counter-terrorism policing, admitted his officers were “not perfect”.

We aren’t expecting them to be. We are expecting them to be competent.

“We’ve got a serious issue with the volume of digital media, what we’re able to analyse and what we’re able to put before the prosecution,” he added.

“It has increased many, many-fold in just a couple of short years, so I’m concerned that we haven’t got enough resource to be able to look at the vast range of material quickly enough to get everything into a case.”

Ah, the usual excuse – ‘We need more resources!’. Well, no. You didn’t miss these songs. You failed to realise what they were and give them the significance needed to support the correct charges.

Which, given the job you’re trained for, is astonishing. So astonishing it raises certain questions, does it not?

    Was he promoted because he is a member of the religion of peace. “Set a thief to catch a thief” perhaps

    Yet they can still interpret tweets for words that hurt people.

    Perhaps if the police and security services spent less time persecuting Scottish comedians and peaceful foreign journalists et al, they’d be able to spend more time dealing with the real bad people in our midst.
    They’ve probably got more money and manpower than they need, if they were better focused on real dangers rather than made up hate crimes.

      John in chesire – that’s not the point. The point here is the suppression of the majority of the population. They have bit by bit eroded our freedoms under the banner of “security” and should you dare to object they’ll get you under “Hate Speech”, or some other trumped up charge.

      Count Dankula along with Sellner, Pettibone and Lauren Southern is not a one off, it’s a warning – a statement of intent.

    As I’ve said, need it be said again?

    Freedom did a runner in the UK and that began when we joined the Berlin Empire, way back in 73 – Berlin told the UK you need to control the people = we’ll show you how, ‘ve haf ze vays’ regime dirty tricks and methodology.
    It started with the deliberate destruction of the old English ways and shire councils, before even we joined the Empire, in 72-74 with newly formed the New metropolitan councils – not in Westminster but in the municiple and DMC’s, Quangoes (EU governance) – are the real nutters and fanatics of social engineering, demographic cleansing, Westminster just gives them the nod.

    Everybody; you need to look more closely, the survellance state is designed to cow you, not the criminals and the efnik enclaves – the police hardly touch them – no it’s you and me they (TPTB) – want to fuck over. They are doing, just that.

      You are absolutely right. On the CPS “There is nothing to suggest that that he was inspired by Daesh” of course not he was a little Surrey lad wasn’t he. Knowing what went on in Rotherham for years and no doubt still going on that the “not perfect Police” don’t know their “Arses from their Elbows” unless they are dealing with Tommy Robinson and Co then they put all their finest officers and resources on to him, proving to me he and his movement are more potent than they would care to admit.

      Vis-a-vis Freedom of speech et al, I am reminded of an oft used phrase by much admired and respected Royal Navy Instructor – “You are up shit creek my sahn, negative f*cking paddles”

    SOT, if the British government can expel 23 Russians over the alleged attempted murders of 2 people by Russians, why are they unable to expel even one Muslim for the murders and attempted murders of hundreds of people by Muslims?

      Because the whole thing is a complete load of bollocks (excuse my language but it’s the most apposite word) set as a distraction by TPTB as window dressing for the benefit of we plebeians, to show us how tough and strong our guvmint is, so we see less of the concerted nationwide – even continent-wide – islamopandering.

    Suppression of the majority and PC wrongthink in support of that is certainly the issue.
