    Nice police news thread

    Everybody knows there is an issue with bad police officers and unwanted and usually unpunished violence on their part, but most police officers are not like that. This thread is to remind people that good things are also done by police officers.

    Example:

    This is little Nouri

    Nouri is 9 years old and he had a big task, for a brain scan (due to suspected epilepsy) he had to stay awake for 24 hours. Now he was having trouble keeping awake and his mom had trouble to keep him awake so as Nouri is a big fan of the police, his mother had asked if he could come to the police station when he had to stay awake and thus when his eyes were getting real heavy she and her son walked to the local police station in Veghel where 2 police officers were waiting for the 9 year old. He was show around the police office, he was allowed to sit on a police bike and got to wear a bullet proof jacket. He was also allowed to get inside a police car and got to switch on the police sirens and lights.

    With the help of the police (or better yet his visit to the police) little Nouri was able to stay awake for the 24 hours and got to have his brain scan and as a thanks his mother brought over a nice thank you cake for the police because "she has a serious amount of respect for the police and clearly they have the same kind of respect for her son".

    Story 2, again from the Netherlands.

    Before I go on, the US has Halloween where kids dress up and go for sweets/chocolates, we have something called Sint Maarten. Kids go around (dressed up a bit usually) with a hand crafted lantern to collect sweets singing an old Dutch song.

    Now that is always on the 11 of the 11 (November 11). On that day in the town of Stadskanaal, the police got a report of someone who was being given CPR by the ambulance crew which was sent out after a 911 call (or better yet, our version of it 112). The elderly man was supposed to welcome his children/grandchildren and great grandchildren at his how where they were going to show their hand crafted/Sint Maarten's lanterns and sing their song/get sweets from their grand/great grandfather.

    That was no longer possible, the man died at the scene as CPR did not help. So while the medics where busy with the CPR, the police had the sad duty to talk to the family who had turned up. In order to give the family the opportunity talk to the GP and say goodbye to their father/grandfather, the police officers took the young children on a Sint Maarten walk so that they could go door to door and sing their song/get their candy.

    After having gone through a few streets the children were taken to the police station and there they got a tour of the police station where the parents were able to go and pick their children up.

    The police wanted the kids to have a good memory of this day and saw this as part of their duty to the public. The parents where very thankful to the police.

    Not really nice but still a bit nice (when one looks at how the police reacts).

    This young man

    23270092_2185945404764953_9153164707198131734_o.jpg

    His name is Anmar Nayare and in an area blighted by burglary he and 3 buddies began running to get to their train, the police thought this was possibly suspicious and wanted to talk to the guys and during the arrest/stopping Anmar was thrown to the ground (even though he says he did everything the police ordered him to do) and scraped with his face along the ground and got injuries to this face.

    He said about his arrest that the police must have thought he looked like a criminal or drug dealer.

    The spokesperson from the police said that they saw three youths with hoodies pulled way up suddenly started running from a porch. The police though this may be suspicious due to multiple burglaries in that area and they were suspicious because they started running out of nowhere.

    So they decided to stop and talk to the 3 running people. Nayare and his 2 buddies were stopped in a adjacent street and the stop culminated into an arrest and during the struggle Anmar got injured.

    The spokesperson said: "People expect us to check out suspicious things but this turned into a big deal for no reason. We feel very bad about the whole thing, he should not have gotten injured".

    Also there was no legal basis for his arrest.

    So Anmar, filed a complaint was invited by the police (with his lawyer) for a chat and an apology from the police. There is also an investigation into how the situation turned violent (done by the national police).

    And that is the good thing, the police actually investigate, people can file grievances and the police goes out of it's way to issue a face to face apology.

    Luckily for his there is no arrest warrant, if he had not gone public nobody would have known his name (people in the Netherlands never have the identity released after an arrest) and even for a short incarceration people get financial compensation. People who get held for 3 days in a police cell (usually those people are not sent to a jail during the police investigation), get on average 324 euro's (so 108 euro a day) which is 380 dollars for 3 days incarceration.

    Another good thing is that police does not really lie a lot to the suspect because if a confession is born out of undue pressure, the confession isn't worth the paper it is written on. But you as a suspect can lie to the police to your hearts contend, it will not help your case and it may be given in evidence, but a judge cannot punish you for lying to the police because no suspect can be forced to help/aid in his conviction.

    Only witnesses are ever sworn in to "tell the truth", a suspect will not be sworn in and can even lie on the stand.
