The crime is neither the murder nor the police collusion. The only crime committed is Joe Public finding the evidence.
The Jagged Edged Cipher. How can you and I (The General Public) be killed just because my / your / our name/s makes a series of words ? Sometimes, it is just alone (Amanda Dowler, 13 year old, London, 2002) more often in combination with other people’s names.
True story. ’Daddy Bear’ MI9’s Director-General J**** R***-M*** MP, like a dynastic Roman Emperor, has 30 or 40 people contract killed one-by-one by a serial killer along The Jurassic Coast. The Dorset Police Force releases statements to the media saying “no suspicious circumstances”.
According to The Dorset Police Force’s Detective Inspector Marcus Hester and his gangland pals these contract killings were all suicides (Gaia Pope, Mercedes Harrison, Anthony Russell, Thomas Caulfield, Courtney Kilvert) or drownings (Liam Conway-McDonagh, Christopher Vaughan, Oscar Montgomery, Callum Baker-Osborne or is it Callum Osborne-Ward). Therefore, no murder investigation required. Who investigates The Dorset Police Force’s C.I.D. Murder Squad ? Answer: no-one.
If, as a Thought Experiment I figured out on paper the what ifs of assassinating MI9’s Director-General ‘Daddy Bear’ J**** R***-M*** MP. I would almost certainly get arrested by The Dorset Police Force. Later, I would be in court and I would be looking at a drummed-up ‘terrorism related’ charge, conviction and a long prison sentence. Remember, I am talking a Thought Experiment.
Murder’s not the crime nor is the police collusion. The only crime committed is Joe Public being told the truth.
