An official report has revealed new and damning failures by police who missed Wayne Couzens’ prolific sexual offending, leaving him armed with police powers which he used to kidnap and murder Sarah Everard.

The failures laid out in the report by Dame Elish Angiolini are worse than previously thought, and she concludes Couzens should never have been a police officer. She highlighted a series of chances to spot his danger to women and his unsuitability be an officer that were missed by repeated bungling in three forces.

Angiolini: "Good police officers work alongside those who abuse their powers, behave inappropriately with their colleagues and do a disservice to the profession of policing,.."

How can they be considered "good police officers"? Their entire justification is to prevent such behaviour - in everyone - not just non-police officers.

Gross incompetence isn't limited to the Met.

The family of Harry Dunn are holding a second funeral for the teenager after human remains were discovered by police on possessions of his they had kept for four and a half years.

Charlotte Charles, Dunn’s mother, said the discovery had left her “sick, angry and bewildered” and had retraumatised the family.

For only society can give or concede it to them; they themselves cannot take it, or give it to themselves.
