On 22nd July 2005, Mr Jean Charles de Menezes was shot eight times at point blank range by the Metropolitan Police’s CO19 firearms unit. Cressida Dick – current Metropolitan Police Commissioner – was in charge of the operation. The then Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Sir Ian Blair, justified de Menezes’ execution on the basis that he refused to obey police instructions. Scotland Yard added that de Menezes’ clothing and behaviour aroused suspicion.
Mr de Menezes lived in a building that was under police surveillance. On the day he was killed people who fitted the police’s racial profiling were stopped a short distance from the building and asked to produce ID. However, de Menezes was not stopped a short distance from the building. As pre agreed at the highest operational level, he was allowed to board a bus and then a tube, before being shot seven times in the head at point blank range on the orders of Ms Cressida Dick, the current Metropolitan Police Commissioner.
The inquest into Mr de Menezes’ death returned an open verdict, implying that the police’s account of the event was unconvincing.
Now, I have long championed people breaking the glass ceiling at work, including the Asian men who broke through a decade ago to become Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioners, and Ms Dick herself.
Ms Cressida Dick: Ma’m, congratulations on your promotion.
But now as then, I remain gravely concerned about whether such promotions amount to anything more than window-dressing and a nod to affirmative action, rather than a decision based on merit. Among the Asian males who rose to the top echelons of the Met Police’s leadership I sensed a lack of intellectual nous, and of clear as well as flexible decision-making and judgement.
The same can be said of the Metropolitan Police’s female Commissioner. Her colleagues may well laud her as an excellent operations manager, but leading an operation and leading the Metropolitan Police are vastly different jobs, each with its own specific skill-set. The first is largely tactical whereas the latter is a multi-dimensional, strategic, oversight role, from which police forces in other countries take their cue.
My own latest experience confirms that just as Ms Dick was in charge of the police’s race-hate execution of de Menezes more than a decade ago, so it is that under her tenure under-the-radar right-wing fascist police officers use police apparatus to tag my and my sister’s movements (as has been the case since 1988). Now, though, the information is immediately shared with right-wing fascist lay people, who according to my information have been assured that if they attack my 70 year old sister and myself all CCTV footage will be deleted and the assailants will not be identified. But, the UK right-wing has gone one step further: it has struck a deal with right-wing fascists from mainland Europe to go in for the kill, assuring them that they will get free passage back to their country afterwards.
In a nutshell, with or without her knowledge, Ms Dick has since her appointment created an atmosphere in the Met Police whereby any right-wing activity by her subordinates will be covered up.
On Saturday 10th March 2018, I took my 70 year old sister for her weekly food shopping, and her usual cup of tea at a well known coffee outlet. We were following a well established pattern of movement and activity. Both the coffee outlet and the supermarket have a customer base comprising a balance of Asians and race-Europeans. But on this day there was a noticeable lack of Asians within a particular age-range at both venues. In their place was an overflow of race-hating race-Europeans of the same age, all exhibiting the same hateful looks and mannerisms, and threatening gait.
You have to realise, the same people visit the same outlets at approximately the same time each day/week. Thus, to a person like me, who is well versed about who my fellow shoppers are and their age group, anybody out of the ordinary stands out like a sore thumb.
At the coffee outlet a group of two men and two women – who took a detour before following us into the café, where they met with a female already seated – were aggressive and confrontational; they were looking for an opportunity to attack both of us. Meanwhile, a third man stood alone along the pathway that we always take. A table conveniently became free and we sat down.
Opposite us, a woman wore an ear-piece and angled a phone equipped with a surveillance-enhanced microphone towards us, as one would position a listening device. She was part of a one-woman, one-man team. She and her partner launched into an over-the-top argument, stopping suddenly to adjust her earpiece and reposition her phone to better capture our voices when my sister and I began speaking.
Later that day, I asked what had happened to the Asian lads who were meant to back me up in such situations. Two separate sources told me that plainclothes police had warned them to stay away, as an operation was under way, else they would be arrested under the terrorism act. A similar threat had already been levelled about a decade ago against a Muslim gentleman I knew well, whose home was raided because of our close association; the police said they were responding to a phone call for help from his house, and he impressed upon them that this could not have been the case as his grandmother who spoke no English was the only person at home at the time. To this, the police officers retorted menacingly that they would arrest him under the Terrorist Act and see how his grandmother with her non-existent English would secure his release from jail.
Race-European police officers with a balanced mindset – yes, they do exist – had warned me some time earlier that since Ms Dick’s and Sara Thornton’s applications for the Metropolitan Police Commissioner job fascist police officers had been gleefully congratulating each other that under the leadership of either woman they would now have a free hand to ‘deal with’ matters, as one of their own was certain to get the post. In my case, they warned me that was in the interest of the fascist police to assist in my and/or my sister’s murder to send a message to Asians in general that they are not allowed to insult the white race in a white country, especially using humour, while the whites can say whatever they feel like about us and others. Subsequently, I was told that this message to put certain types in their place had come directly from the current Metropolitan Police Commissioner’s office, according to the police canteen talk. Since 1988 information from internal police officers has proven to be accurate.
There you have it. As of Saturday 10th March 2018, the Met Police – and by default the UK’s police forces – are under orders to facilitate my and/or my sister’s killing at the hand of right-wing fascists.
Ms Cressida Dick: Ma’am, I do not doubt you will back and support your officers to the hilt once I and /or my sister are killed. Upon retirement, you will be able to bask in the achievement of having officially managed to kill at least three brown people, just because you and your officers could – and of course will – get away with it.
