This is just sickening.
The Met has been forced to make an extraordinary public apology to a mother wrongly arrested and accused of assaulting an officer as bailiffs attempted to clamp her husband’s car.
Detective sergeant Nick Westwood made the “humbling” apology to Alison Richardson in front of scores of her fellow churchgoers over the “upset and distress” caused when she was arrested in 2008.
Mrs Richardson was taken into custody by as many as eight officers after she and her church elder husband Clive called them because bailiffs were wrongly attempting to clamp their car.
When police arrived at the family home in Greenwich, they unlawfully barged their way into the property, roughly handled the couple and arrested Mrs Richardson.
A woman officer subsequently claimed that she had been punched in the face by Mrs Richardson. Mrs Richardson was held in a police station for eight hours, then later taken to court and sentenced to 150 hours of community service.
But she appealed against the sentence and after serving 90 hours of her community service was completely exonerated by a judge.
She said: “I felt that the apology was humble and genuine. The apology was necessary because of the humiliation, disgrace and embarrassment that I experienced when I was arrested, charged, tried and convicted of assaulting a police officer, a false allegation of a crime that I had clearly not committed.
“The public apology helps to heal the wounds and also to close this traumatic chapter, so that I can move forward with my family and get on with my life.”
After her conviction Mrs Richardson lost her criminal records bureau accreditation and had to step down from her role in her local Greenwich Seventh-day Adventist church office. Continue Reading….
Where is the “apology” from the police woman who lied and said Mrs Richardson had assaulted her? Why hasn’t the lying dog been named, shamed and punished?
The Richardson’s should demand compensation for all the stress caused.

The Police have been behaving in this way for a long time especially towards black people. The lying Police woman in this case will not be punished in anyway, in fact she will be promoted soon without a blemish on her records more than what can be said for the victim’s record.
