This is the official blog of Sgt Ellie Bloggs, a real live police sergeant on the front line of England. It's not the official opinion of my police force, but all the facts I recount are true, and are not secrets. If they don't want me blogging about it, they shouldn't do it. PS If you don't pay tax, you don't pay my salary.

The case of the sacked detective.

Someone has finally been sacked for failing to prevent a murder. One of the reasons this story about a botched investigation has made it into headlines is because it involves a "Derbyshire Detective", which is just so catchy it is worthy of the evening news.

It does send a serious message though, about how we must deal with cases of harassment properly. The murdered woman had reported harassment on six occasions and the police DID NOTHING! I just can't believe it.

When I am in a motivated mood and on a good day, this is how I investigate harassment:

Step One
Report of harassment received and passed to PC Bloggs.

Step Two
PC Bloggs attends and discovers the following generic facts about all harassments:
  • The nutter is an ex-partner.
  • He is obsessive ("He" used for ease, and because men just can't let go).
  • The word "Stalking" is used by the victim.
  • Threatening text messages have been sent in their hundreds and yet the victim has not changed their mobile phone number or blocked the nutter's number.
  • The victim's new partner has been warned off.
  • On several occasions the nutter has driven past the victim's address in a harassing manner.
Step Three
PC Bloggs divines telepathically that out of the ten identical cases she has dealt with this year, THIS is the one that is going to end in murder. More likely, she recognises that there is no way to avoid dealing with this job - she will have to take a statement. Statement taken, crime report created. On a really good day, PC Bloggs gets statements from family members testifying to the harassment.

Step Four
PC Bloggs arrests the nutter. In interview, he says that the victim texted him just as often and called him, and he just happened to drive past her house those times on the way to work. He cries during interview and says he loves her (not PC Bloggs, the victim - usually).

Step Five
CPS deliberate, cogitate and digest, and with persuasion from a motivated PC Bloggs, agree to charge the nutter, although it goes against their better instincts. The decision is only swung by the use of the words "escalating pattern of domestic violence" and "likely to end in a serious incident" by PC Bloggs (who has been brushing up on her Investigative Jargon).

Step Six
The custody sergeant remands the nutter in custody to prevent any further harassment.

Step Seven
The courts release the nutter on bail.

Step Eight
The nutter behaves for a couple of weeks during his bail period, turns up in court and pleads guilty for a lower sentence. He is given a suspended sentence and a restraining order which he has ignored before setting foot on the pavement, and released back into the victim's neighbourhood.

I have no idea whether Derbyshire's investigation followed this course, but I suspect this happened at some point. At the end of all this, step nine is:

Step Nine
Seeing the nutter outside her house again, the victim makes a complaint, not about the courts but about PC Bloggs.

The alternative Step Nine is that the victim is murdered and PC Bloggs goes off with STRESS. In either event, not much happens to the magistrate involved.

Derbyshire may well have utterly cocked up this investigation and caused this poor woman's death. Unfortunately the chances are that even if they had done everything in their power, she still would have been killed.

The point is: If you are being harassed, DO NOT call the police, just uproot your entire life and move away under a new name. Trust me, it's the only way.

Damned if you do, and damned if you don't.

No wonder there is so much stress around.

I agree with your advice, the police can't be there 24/7 and stalkers are so obsessed they don't really care and will always find a time and a place to get you.
Mine got out of jail after 6 months and started all over again. I moved to a new town. It stopped, yay!

I once spoke to a custody sergeant who liked the idea of introducing some new legislation. "The Euthanasia Act" he called it. I got the impression he would use the new laws to the full when dealing with cases like this one.
His words....not mine.

Most cases of so called harassment are just a couple of people acting like spoilt kids.
The harassment act is misused for such cases instead of serious stalking, which is what it was brought in for.

We call 'em "mutants" here.

Bloggs, you have a great way with words!

The next time a victim is criticized for not changing her number, you can tell the Monday-morning-quarterback that if a stalker cannot reach the victim by phone, often all that serves to do is draw the offender to her physically. ... So the serious incident will happen sooner as the "escalating pattern of domestic violence" is only sped up by such an action. But, of course, this would be the victim's fault, too, in the eyes of many.

Tears were welling up in my eyes because I was laughing so hard at your description of what happens when the nutter is interviewed! I'd swear you were talking about all of our cases here! haha!

In case people think I don't take these matters seriously, I actually had a stalker myself once. To be honest, I don't know any women who HAVEN'T been stalked at one time or another. Men are sad, aren't they.

Human beings are sad.

Instead of moving away, do something useful. Use his patterns of behaviour to culminate in him breaking in on you, then kill him.

A couple of years ago, a atalker was arrested several times, charged, 'warned off and realeased' by the court before starting it all over again. The young woman being stalked, printed off a load of leaflets showing his face, informing readers that he was a stalker and to notify the Police if he was seen. The leaflets were posted through letter boxes, stuck on lampposts and telepgraph poles in the area the young woman lived. It worked, right up to the point a couple of male vigilantes beat him up, sending him to hospital.
All of this could have been prevented if the court had dealt with it properly.
The euthanasia method was interesting but would only work if it was carried out immediately after the magistrate who didn't do his job.

Can't the victim buy a gun and if the stalker tries to harm her she just shoots him?

I see people are using 'he' and 'him' alot when in reference to the person doing the harassing.

It's typical of the double standards in today's society.

As others have pointed out, it's not just men that do the stalking. An ex of mine was a bit of a psycho bitch, & I had to change my phone numbers. Luckily she wouldn't pose any physical threat to me unless she got a gun or sneaked up on me with a knife [or paid someone else to do her dirty work], but luckily she latched onto someone else not long afterwards... poor bastard. Also, an ex of a mate of mine was a bit of a "bunny-boiler". Women are just as capable as men as being psycho stalkers.
