This is not an isolated incident. The police have a history of lying
The police log in this case looks similar to other untruthful police logs. The mentioning of the members of the public looking shocked and the large amount of swear words against police. Police officers are doing these things because there are no consequence of doing them, their superiors are either party to this kinds of conduct or just turn a blind eye. It is institutional and it will take generations to clean it up.
We can not have the rule of law if our Police are institutionalized in professional lying.
The length the faked details of the off duty police officer went in to, in the email sent to the MP, suggests these are well practiced police tactics.

People say that memories are golden
And maybe that is true
But we never wanted those memories of you
We only wanted you
If only our love could have saved you from that wretched cancer
Then Oliver you would never had died
But yesterday we had to say goodbye.
So farewell my loyal friend you will never be forgotten and never be replaced
Go and round up all those other animals you may meet, don’t let them stray afar
And one day we will meet again, so rest in peace till then.

How did we get to where we are now?
This government inherited an almighty mess left by Labour. Gordon Brown was the worst chancellor and the worst Prime Minister this country's ever had. He, Blair and their ilk ruined this country economically, culturally and socially.The damage will never, ever be repaired. I cannot believe that people have such short memories as to even contemplate voting the Labour traitors in again. At least Dave and George are trying to fix things but legend has it that when this Nation is in mortal danger that King Gordon will awaken from his endless deep sleep of denial somewhere in Fife and return to the Nation in its hour of greatest need. He will tenderly place his hobnail boot onto the choking Nation's windpipe and finish off the job that he failed to complete in 2010 when he was so close to success. If he fails to awaken in time his truest and trustiest knight Sir Edcase de Spendalot and his Chancellor Balls are both on a sworn oath to smite his enemies and rekindle the Sacred Flame of Prodigal Waste. They will end the long and winding quest for the Holy Grail of Default and finish the job off on King Gordon's behalf before the decade is over -even if it kills us all. Such loyalty in an ignoble cause.
I believe the Catalans suffer from the same symptoms which the Germans have. I call it the " It Should Have Been Us" syndrome. In other words, they always thought they were the In's who should have been, the ones in driver’s seat. I'm sure the Catalans would have preferred that Hispanic America speak Catalan over Spanish. Or made Barcelona the Capital of Spain, but it never did and they feel cheated because of it.
I used to ask the Catalan managers in Condiesel during the war with Argentina about Las Malvinas. Have you, the Catalan people ever said 'sorry' for their part in the colonization of North and South America? No? And why should they you ask? Well as I remember it. Catalunya did not do so bad while helping conquer the continents. At the time of colonization Catalunya made millions and millions in gold,silver and other natural resources during the 400 years the Americas suffered under Spanish/Catalan rule. And it was not until the beginning of the fall of the Spanish empire did you see secessionist and nationalist come out of the wood work.
My point is Catalunya has always loved Spain when times were good and hated it when times got tough. Like a child who's parents had to cut their allowance because one has lost their job. Of course the child is to blame its parents for its cut in funds. And hence this latest furor over Catalan independence. But take care or something may go wrong!
Preview to 2015?
I can’t help but think that Catalunya will find itself surrounded by all these new states and a future scenario that will make the Spanish civil war look like a Disney film. Maybe the PP and Madrid manner in handling this and language they are using is wrong, but is it wrong to prevent the breakup of Spain.
This sounds like wide speculation, but it is not a stretch to imagine that the Iberian peninsula will easily resemble the instability in Russia/Ukraine after the collapse of the Soviet Union...once Catalunya pulls itself from the rest of the country to let their economies sink.
By 2015, the collapse of the Euro and the inability to manage the demands of the regions following the departure of Catalunya, bring about the eventual bankruptcy of Madrid and the end of Spain as a cohesive state.
Each rump state finds it has to fend for itself, the rationale middle ground that tries to take control gives way to extremism and criminal networks replacing the role of the failed states. The mafia flourish in the black market trade of vital goods, whilst in the south the right wing army militias join forces with the mafia in the cities to sweep away the leftist groups that briefly flourished. Filled with disgruntled out of office army officers, they promise to end the lawlessness in this vast land.
Catalunya which has been enjoying a booming economy prides itself on the money it has spent on a wall along its borders to stop migrants from entering from the failed states. Refugees from the south of Iberia that get through on boats from the Balearics are being rounded up in Barcelona to be housed in camps around Tarragona to work on the farms – but resentful citizens attack the refugees for bringing lawlessness or being suspected fascists looking to undermine a prosperous Catalunya. Law and order has now collapsed in Valencia where Catalunya has the biggest business interests and investments having pulled out of all other parts of the peninsula. Catalonian business groups pressurize the government to break from its non interventionist policy and support a coup in its neighbours to restore law and order, and safeguard its interests.
France, nervous about its own stability, is concerned about floods of refugees as news comes in that Madrid has fallen to anarchists, and closes the borders and pressurizes the Catalan government to sort out the mess in its back garden. Bloody fights break between leftist and the mafia over the important lucrative trade routes that criss cross Iberia, which were once controlled by the Spanish state, and prices rocket finally threatening the economy and stability of Catalunya. Morocco seizes on the moment invades the Canary Islands, whilst the right wing mafia junta of Andalucía marches into Portugal to restore law and order where left-wing guerrillas have been launching attacks across the border.
Britain, Germany and France, send in troops to Catalunya, which has agreed to spearhead a push south to kick out the mafia governments of the south, including conscripts of refugees. They march into the increasingly violent and lawless middle states and Europe is now drawn into a war to stop the march of the right.
Catalunya after pleading for independence in 2014 marches into destroyed Madrid in 2015 as people cheer across the peninsula the unifying Catalonia army, and celebrate the end of 15 years of war that has decimated the population of Europe. Is this to far fetched, no, I don't think so!
