Boy arrested as classmate hurt in school accident

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by dangerousdave, Feb 24, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Police state UK 8O

    A boy of 11 was arrested after breaking his classmate’s arm – even though the school dismissed it as an accident.

    Dylan Keetley, 11, could face a grievous bodily harm charge after being quizzed by cops for more than three hours. Police wanted to take his fingerprints and DNA - but his parents refused.

    Teachers at Kingsway High School in Stockport investigated the incident and say the injury was caused accidentally during a ‘rough and tumble’ game last October.

    But Dylan’s parents Mike and Sharon Keetley were stunned to receive a call from police warning them their son may face criminal charges.

  2. The filth state rules,they are a piss poor excuse for human being's
     
  3. Yes how dare the old bill take a complaint from the family of a young boy (who has had his arm broken) seriously.
     
  4. You have to ask, what motivated the other kids parents to report the matter to the police in the first place. Then question the logic that has driven the polices decision to proceed with this. I was under the impression that an arrest and prosecution were supposed to be carried out only if it were in the public interest otherwise a private prosecution was the way ahead.
     
  5. COMPENSATION :lol:
     
  6. "Kingsway High School in Stockport investigated the incident and say the injury was caused accidentally" :roll:
     
  7. I didn't realise that school were experts on possible criminal matters :roll:

    Are the police suppose to ignore parents complaining that their son has had his arm broken because a school teacher who wasn't there when it happened said so?
     

  8. Ding! Ding!

    We have a winner!
     
  9. No, they aren't. However, what is wrong with sending an officer round to speak to both boys and their parents and to get the names of other boys involved? Arresting an 11 year old then taking his fingerprints and DNA is way over the top. There was no way fingerprint or DNA evidence could be used in this case so why would the police need it?

    Dylan is already at a disadvantage in today's society, coming from a home with two parents and both married to each other. He must feel really left out and a bit of a freak, isn't life hard enough for boys from good homes without trying to criminalise them?
     
  10. ARRSE has had several people asking advice about what to do about their child getting bullied at school, the outrage bus leapt into action with various stories of how the schools are not interested and maybe the parents should talk to the police.
    http://www.arrse.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic/t=143823/start=0.html
    Yet now a set of parents have done that the outrage bus is out again against the police this time.

    Most of the story is told by the arrested childs mother, with a brief quote from school. Where the view from the parents of the lad with a broken arm? Surely the newspaper tracked them down.
    Nothing like a balanced view.

    How does having your parents still married translate into a good home? If they were split up would that make him a bad kid?
     
  11. (in my view)they are nothing but a bunch of over paid(thousand's) over pensioned(thousands) uselless(stress) backstabbing(underground bomber) robbing(check the new's) filth who are a very very poor excuse for human's :twisted:
     
  12. What's the matter with you, had a speeding ticket recently?
     
  13. A richard is a richard :evil: ,and no,never a ticket or charge in 38 year's :lol:

    The Plod were overzealous mainly because of the other major disadvantage this boy has, he is WHITE, there was no mention of the "victims" colour or ethnicity, if not white British I am surprised its not a RACE crime as well!!
