    Surely some kind of cover-up...

    Err, I think the idea is to try and find out what happened before declaring it to be a cover-up, no?

    With Police as the only witnesses, it's going to be very difficult to get a fully accurate picture.
    Best shot is the independent Pathologist.

    I should also flag up here that there is going to be a public meeting in Brixton at 7PM on 24th of March.

    Venue TBC, because they need to find a bigger one.

    The important thing is to attempt to get across to the Met that regardless of precisely what happened in this incident, the simple fact is that they have previous form, and they need to be aware of that when investigating such incidents. Simply assuming that they can label somebody as a "wrong 'un" and then make little or no effort to make it clear that a proper and suitably open investigation has taken place simply won't wash. They've been trying it for years and that's the whole problem.

    When the Met Police start showing the people of London that they hold their own officers to the standards they demand of the rest of us, and that they treat all suspicious incidents accordingly, then and only then can they start mending the divide between them and so many Londoners.

    I don't hold out a lot of hope. There are some excellent police officers in the Met, but far too few who are prepared to challenge the culture of "us and them/with us or against us" that pervades most of the Met Police's approach to any suspicion of wrongdoing by its officers.

    I make no assumptions about what happened. The point stands regardless of the specifics of this particular case. The Met HAS to show itself as capable of being self critical.

    I was extremely suspicious when I first heard details of what happened to Smiley. Let hope his family get some answers.

    It is Surrey, but it was a Met operation. I think they visited a few people that morning. One of the questions the IPCC is asking is if Surrey Police were properly informed.

    Unfortunately true. IMHO.

    In all the times my house was raided by police I don't remember them allowing me to go make a cup of tea. Not really smart to allow someone access to a pot of boiling water when you're about to screw their life up.
    Probably bad reporting rather than some sort of cover up.
