Scum cop walks free due to fascists UK police policies and one rule for them and one rule for us
Details of Harwood’s controversial disciplinary record – including one complaint which prompted a superior to say his conduct had ‘fallen well below that expected of a police officer’ – can now be reported after the verdict, which found him not guilty of manslaughter.
Mr Harwood was able to retire from the Met while facing disciplinary proceedings for an alleged road rage incident but returned to the force as a civilian employee before later being re-employed as a police officer specialising in public order.
Deborah Glass of the Independent Police Complaints Commission said it was ‘staggering’ that he was able to return to the force without a disciplinary hearing.
She said despite the jury’s verdict ‘significant questions remain’ about the officer’s behaviour on the day Mr Tomlinson died.
The Met said it was clear that insufficient checks meant information about his misconduct was not shared at key points. It added: ‘We got that wrong.’
Allegations against Mr Harwood stretched over several years and included accusations of violence, threats and misconduct.
A fellow officer accused him of using excessive force in dealing with a suspect and claimed he ‘went over the top’. The allegation was unsubstantiated.
The one upheld complaint was for unlawfully accessing the police computer after a road accident.
A group of about 30 demonstrators staged a protest outside Scotland Yard’s headquarters last night, shouting: ‘The police killed Ian Tomlinson.’
