UK Cops Appeal Human Rights Ruling

A nice can of worms compliments of the other Common Law. The precedent is essentially this: cops didn’t do what you wanted? They violated your human rights.

Detective Constable David Ridley, of Hertfordshire Police, was later found guilty in a police disciplinary action of failing to perform his duties diligently with regard to the threats.

Mr Van Colle’s parents then launched a case against the police under article two of the Human Rights Act, which covers the right to life. They were awarded £50,000 by the High Court in 2006.

Hertfordshire Police’s appeal at the House of Lords will start today.

The rest.
