UK NEWS: IPCC ANNOUNCES THAT POLICE INVOLVED IN THE FATAL ARREST OF SMILEY CULTURE WILL NOT FACE ANY CHARGES

Smiley Culture died during a police raid inside his Surrey home.

The Guardian reports that the laughable and useless IPCC (Independent Police Complaints Commission) have announced that police officers who carried out the raid in which the reggae star Smiley Culture (real name David Emanuel) allegedly stabbed himself to death are unlikely to face criminal charges, disciplinary action or be officially questioned.

In a confidential letter to the singer’s family, Mike Franklin, commissioner of the IPCC, said: “The [IPCC] investigation has identified aspects of the operation which were not satisfactory, and criticisms have been made of some of the officer’s actions. However, these do not meet the threshold for misconduct under the police misconduct system.”

Months of  “investigation” and this is what the worthless IPCC comes back with. This is absolute BULLS**T and a complete and utter farce. I am furious but at the same time I’m not really surprised. When a black man dies at the hands of the police it doesn’t mean a damn thing.  Some things will NEVER change.

The following information (below) was also posted on the Campaign For Justice For Smiley Culture Facebook page.

Smiley was handcuffed AFTER fatal injury..2) No fingerprints on knife..3) Officer can’t explain how Smiley got into kitchen.. And still they say there were no grounds to assume the officers were involved in anything criminal?! Looks like unless you have CCTV, it’s impossible to discipline an officer here in the U.K. We are ready to take this case to the European courts if we need to.

I believe that the family will eventually have to take this case to the European courts and I hope they finally go on to get justice for David.

Rest In Peace David Emanuel aka Smiley Culture.

  1. Firstly, did we expect any other result from Edom? Secondly, what did we really believe the IPCC was? Do you really think that they are really independent because they have the word “independent” in their title. No, lets remove the veil and see them for who they really are, they are the same people who killed Smiley Culture in his home, Mark Duggan in Tottenham, Ian Tomlinson at the G20 protests in Central London and Jean Charles De Menezes on a train at Stockwell underground station. Independent…………………whatever!

  2. Why am I not surprised. Our lives aint worth shit. They can kill us off without even a thought because the powers that be dont see us as part of this country. I pray for the family of Smilie Culture. They should continue to fight, the IPCC is a disgrace!

  3. This is sad….i see things are the same over there as well. And like misslala said out lives aint worth shit to those people. I hope you guys protest over there….because this cannot just be swept under… no way!!!!!! Black People wake up!!!

  4. What’s being black got to do with it? The bastards only see one colour they care about. Blue.
