Why did the IPCC make the entirely false claim that none of my neighbours were also reporting incidents?
Background to this – https://asblewishame.wordpress.com/2013/05/03/mps-complaints-and-cover-ups/
In their letter refusing my Appeal the IPCC stated:
“Despite efforts by police to identify…victims of similar repetitive behaviour this also proved to be unsuccessful”
That, though, is entirely false – and completely misrepresents the true situation…and me when combined with the other lies eg about the CCTV evidence, which I’ll explain on a future post.
Below is the proof that Lewisham police knew that throughout many neighbours had also reported incidents by the same perpetrators I repeatedly identified –
so, why were the IPCC falsely claiming police had been unable to identify any other victims?
There can be only three possible explanations –
i) Lewisham police knowingly lied to PS Gibbs, Department of Professional Standards…and her investigation was so poor, so totally inadequate, so lacking in any meaningful investigation, that she failed to discover the truth
ii) PS Gibbs knew the truth, knew that throughout several neighbours had also been reporting incidents, and by the same perpetrators I’d repeatedly identified, but she passed entirely false information to the IPCC
iii) PS Gibbs had properly informed the IPCC that throughout several neighbours had also been reporting incidents by the same perpetrators I’d repeatedly identified…but the IPCC decided to just make up a whopping great lie that Lewisham police hadn’t been able to identify any other victims.
Proof Lewisham police knew other neighbours were also reporting incidents –
I have included only those for the period PS Gibbs was supposed to be investigating ie December 2009–October 2011 (and these are only some of those I happen to know about for that period but I don’t have documents proving the others). Neighbours were similarly reporting incidents after October 2011 too.
1 – October 2009
When, what it it soon transpired were, a criminal family “well known to the police” moved next door around June 2009, they immediately started targeting me but I didn’t start reporting incidents to the police until December 2009 –
in April 2010 I discovered from a PCSO that on 01 October 2009 – prior to when I’d started reporting incidents, – an official police warning letter had been given to one of the family for their ASB against a neighbour in a nearby road.
2 – June 2010
Other neighbours were also “sick and tired” (quote from a PCSO’s email) of ASB by the same perpetrators I repeatedly identified, four of these neighbours came together and requested a meeting with Lewisham police, they eventually met with two PCSOs from the Safer[sic] Neighbourhood Team.
Below is from the Local Government Ombudsman report, the original documents had been seen by the LGO caseworker investigating my complaint against Lewisham Council –
“Two PCSOs attended a meeting at a house in the same street as Ms x’s. They met four different couples who were also experiencing antisocial behaviour from the same family… They were also told of four further households who were also suffering but had been too scared of reprisals to attend the meeting….The PSCOs reported this in writing…with the comment “all these families are now squarely behind [Ms x].”
3 – November/December 2010
The following are just a couple of several emails proving Lewisham police knew of four neighbours reporting further incidents November/December 2010.
NB Although Pc Wren said he would take a statement from me re incidents I’d suffered he never actually did this, instead he asked me to send him a list of incidents over the previous six months, which I did. I have our emails proving all this

PC Wren has now got 5 statements from various residents including xxxxxxxxx in connection with the ASB resulting from xxx
He has asked me to liaise with you to arrange a meeting with him to discuss the situation and go through the statements.
4 – August 2011
In August 2011 I provided the same Lewisham police PCSO who had written the above email with a list of incidents from June 2011, this for a police and Council meeting taking place on 31 August 2011…
I included in my list the fact that the front window of an elderly, housebound neighbour had been smashed, which had been reported by her family to Lewisham police on 10/08/11…
and that a neighbour had told me another neighbour who lived nearby had also been suffering and reporting incidents by the same perpetrators I’d repeatedly identified.
That the information from my neighbour about another neighbour suffering and reporting incidents was true, was confirmed by Pc Wren during the trial on 28/10/11…the trial following Pc Wren maliciously arresting me on 02/09/11, see https://asblewishame.wordpress.com/2014/04/19/dps-twisting-the-truth/

Subject: Re 3234950/10 Summary of Incidents from June 11 28/08/11
Dear PCSO xxx, further to your visit today with your colleague, you asked me to email to you a list of recent incidents and I have attached a brief summary of same.
The list I gave you was just a rough draft for my own reference so please ignore that, I have quickly tidied it and the attached version can be used/distributed at the meeting on Wednesday 31/08/11 (if it goes ahead, I am not attending as I explained).
I subsequently saw the minutes from that 31/08/11 meeting – there was no mention at all of my list nor that other neighbours were also suffering incidents…so it seems these important and crucially relevant details had not even been raised at that meeting…or had been conveniently omitted from the minutes…
minutes which were written by PS Anderson, Lewisham police…
the same PS Anderson who two months later on 31/10/11 maliciously referred me to mental health services claiming I was mentally ill and suffering delusions incidents were happening…
his referral was made around six weeks after my front window was smashed, see https://asblewishame.wordpress.com/2013/05/05/criminal-damage-aka-wear-and-tear/
