Boy arrested as classmate hurt in school accident

#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.

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.

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?

I should imagine the school are experts in adolescent behavior, more so than the Police. The school also spoke to both boys and others involved in the rough and tumble. Both boys get along fine at school now so obviously neither bears a grudge.

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?

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?

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!!

Stop shit stirring. What has race got to do with it. Police have to investigate complaints, he wasn't charged and won't be unless there's a history between the lads, which sounds unlikely on the face of it.

That's my old High School! It may sound a tad egotistical, but that place really did start to go downhill when my year left. I've still got cousins who go there, and old friends teaching there, and the place is a hole. It's a massive difference to the relatively successful place that I attended a decade ago.

My missus is a teacher, and she was only telling me a couple of months back that a kid in her new school was done in by a claw-hammer-wielding fellow pupil. Neither the school nor the police got involved because it was outside school time and the victim wouldn't report it. Hell, she's known fellow teachers get punched in the face by students during a class and the rozzers weren't involved. It always struck me that the police's hands were tied unless the incident is actually reported to them - and that schools were generally loathe to involve police because it looks bad for them. The lad who got his nose broken by his student was, as I understand it, practically forced into keeping it quiet as the school would not support him. I think the kid got a week's suspension.

Funny can you imagine the plod arresting a CHILD of Pakistani origin especially in the North West of England and wanting to take fingerprints & DNA samples for the same thing? Look at incidents in other schools such as Swindon, where Asian bullies were involved!
The plod were totally over the top, common sense was NOT used and as another poster already said "COMPENSATION" was and probably still is, in the other parents heads when they complained to the police!

You're in the dark as much as anyone on this. Pure supposition based on fuckall.
