19 August (Part 1) - Rhys Lawrie. The trial and beyond - Click second image for photo gallery (4 images)

DPS statementRhys’s grandfather Trevor was banned from taking notes at Cameron Rose’s trial. He says it was on the express order of the judge. Other people were allowed to take notes, but Trevor says that by then he was a known troublemaker, arguing his case to everyone who would listen. As such there is little that can be said about the trial. However afterwards Trevor continued to ask questions. He directed 19 to the police’s Directorate of Professional Standards (DPS) and every single one of them was answered with the same words seen above. The same words they used following the first complaint about Bexley police’s failure to investigate Bexley council’s obscene blog.

One of Trevor’s complaints was that the police failed to secure the crime scene. This was met with the response “The house was returned to Ms. Henry’s control as there were insufficient grounds to suspect that a criminal offence had taken place. Rhys’s medical condition sometimes makes infants more prone to Sudden Unexplained Death in Infancy SUDI”.

RhysAnother complaint was that the police did not properly assess the injuries they saw on 21st January 2011. The Directorate of Professional Standards responded with, “Given the information at the time the officers acted in good faith and considered the injuries thoroughly. They did not believe there was sufficient evidence to consider the injuries non-accidental.

Rhys’s injuries were allegedly sustained while rolling off a sofa, whether on to a carpeted floor or on to something harder is unknown. To judge whether the police acted reasonably in deciding that the injuries were accidental and the result of falling as a result of an epileptic fit, more images are available. They are of the cleaned but bruised body and are available only via a user name (rhys) and password (lawrie). This is to prevent unintended access to the photographs and indexing by search engines. Click the blog image to view four photographs. Judge for yourself whether there was insufficient evidence to consider that a crime may have been committed. Judge for yourself whether the DPS’s priority was once again to cover up the police’s mistakes and wrongdoing.

The author of the letter from which the above extracts are taken is Detective Superintendent Steven Chandler. Maybe that is a common name in the police but a Detective Chief Inspector Chandler had an involvment with the cover up of the death of newspaper seller Ian Tomlinson. Ideal material for promotion into the DPS.
