PSNI/RUC blasts out ‘That’s the sound of da police’ to young people in North Belfast

The single Sound of da Police was released by rapper KRS-One in 1993
THE PSNI/RUC has been accused of antagonising young people in north Belfast after blasting out “That’s the sound of da police” from a Land Roverbut a senior officer insisted it was all in “good humour”.

A video appears to show the rap song being played through the vehicle’s public address system in the New Lodge area on Thursday evening.

Solicitor Michael Brentnall said he has referred the matter to the Police Ombudsman.

The incident took place days after local youths agreed to not to hold an anti-internment anniversary bonfire in the area.

In previous years the pyre, which is opposed by many residents, was blamed for anti-social behaviour and brought young people into conflict with police.

RNU peaceful protester is dragged away by the British PSNI/RUC yards from where US President Obama is speaking.
Footage of the Land Rover blasting out the chorus of the KRS-One track Sound of da Police has been shared widely.

The song, which includes the lyrics “Woop woop! That’s the sound of da police”, deals with themes of police brutality and attitudes to black people.

Police in Essex have previously accepted it was “inappropriate” to use a patrol car’s loudspeaker system to play it while driving through Chelmsford.

Another video in circulation also appears to show police using a Land Rover PA system before items are thrown at it.

“Last week the community united to prevent a repeat of last year’s disorder,” he said.

“Ever since the PSNI have been trying to provoke chaos by targeting children and antagonising residents.”

The community worker said he is concerned that children may react and ultimately end up in the criminal justice system.

“This behaviour threatens the welfare of community and the community does not seem to have anybody prepared to stand up and call it out.”

However, Chief Inspector Kelly Moore said the song was played by police “in good humour” and claimed young people cheered it.

“In relation to the first four-second video clip, local police officers on duty in north Belfast on Thursday evening had a very positive engagement with a group of young people,” she said.

“Having spent some time speaking with the young people, as police left the area, the song was played for a matter of seconds in good humour, with the young people waving, dancing and cheering.

“Any attempt by others to claim this was an attempt to antagonise does both the young people and the community a disservice.”

She added: “While we are making enquiries regarding the other five-second section of video footage, on occasion, when people look like they are about to throw items at police vehicles, officers do engage with them in a bid to defuse the situation.”

Massacre at Amritsar one of British Empire’s many despicable events

This letter appeared in The Irish News today Wednesday July 15th 2020

IT WAS interesting to read in the excellent ‘On this day’ (July 9) that Edward Carson had defended the actions of Brigadier General Dyer in the House of Commons in relation to the massacre at Amritsar in India.

On April 13th 1919, thousands of civilians gathered peacefully in a walled garden in the city. In their eyes of both the governor of Punjab, Sir Michael O’Dwyer (from Tipperary) and General Dyer, his top military man in the city, such gatherings were proof that a second Indian mutiny was brewing. Blocking the main exit to the garden, Dyer marched in his men and ordered them to open fire, without giving any order to disperse.

Blocking the main exit to the garden, Dyer marched in his men and ordered them to open fire, without giving any order to disperse. In the 10 minutes that followed, hundreds fell dead and many more were wounded. According to legend, Udham Singh was among those injured and he vowed to take revenge.

For 21 years he waited patiently. General Dyer had died in the meantime of natural causes but on March 13th 1940 Mr Singh exacted his revenge by assassinating O’Dwyer, at a public meeting in Caxton Hall, London. July 31st will be the 80th anniversary of the execution of Singh, who was hanged in Pentionville Prison and was believed to have been buried in the same grave as Sir Roger Casement. His story is told in the excellent book The Patient Assassin by Anita Anand. In the light of the Black Lives Matter movement there has been a lot of talk recently about the true history of the British Empire. The massacre at Amritsar was one of its many despicable events. In view of what happened in the formation and governance of the empire, I do wonder how people who consider themselves to be humanitarians can accept honours in its name.

FAQ: Police Ombudsman’s Office NI; Urgent. RE: Police Investigation and handling of Noah Donohee’s Disappearance and Death

Compliant made to the Police Ombudsman of NI regarding the disappearance and suspected murder of Noah Donohoe by the illegal loyalist organisation of the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF)

Tragic teen Noah Donohoe
Flowers on the gate of Saint Malachy’s College as people pay tribute to Noah
To the Police Ombudsman NI, I am writing to you to file this complaint as a very concerned member of the public who would like to request a robust and thorough investigation of the PSNI handling of the above case given certain anomalies which I feel exist in what the Police have stated in public about this disappearance and death of a young Catholic teenager- which to many people in the population, whom the ‘public interest’ clause applies to, find most unusual and distressing. I particularly would like for your investigation to probe the Police regarding the following matters; 1. Did the police not approach or warrant any neighbouring or nearby businesses and homes with CCTV, aside from the limited footage provided freely by a member of the public residing in the area, regarding the tracing of Noah’s cycle route and in seeking to verify for sure if he really did fall off his bicycle as reported by an anonymous member of the public? If not, why? 2. Did the police make any enquiries as to whether some recent sectarian attacks and activities in that area against Nationalist/Catholic Youths were linked or relevant to the disappearance and death of Noah? 3. Did the police only come the following day after someone had reported finding his bicycle, and if so, why did they leave it when this was such a pressing matter and piece of evidence? Did the Police obtain a check for finger prints on the bicycle? 4. Did the police do any finger print checks on any other items of Noah’s that actually were recovered? I ask as well if finger print checks were conducted in and around the location of his remains? 5. What medical evidence, if any, was sought to rule out “foul play” when the young man was seen naked, apparently after falling off of his bicycle? Please confirm. 6. If a helmet was present, then how do the police rule out foul play on the basis that they suspect it was a head injury from falling off of his bicycle? And were any checks conducted on the person who claimed this is what had happened to Noah, including potential links to paramilitaries? 7. Have any police informants in the area been approached for information given the widespread disbelief by the public that this was not sectarian related? 8. Have the police looked into the fact that recent suicides have occurred of at least one, but potentially other, teenage children of known Loyalists (and suspected by the public, police informants/state agents from that area where Noah was found dead)? 9. Did the police consider any precedent cases of missing youngsters who were later found to have been murdered? If so, which? The Sonia Forsythe case from 1991 being just one that could have been flagged up. 10. Were the homes of any registered sex offenders even searched in the area? Or warrants obtained to do so? 11. Were any “special branch” police officers with a history of dealing with police informants/state agents involved in the case regarding Noah? 12. Were there any warrants issued to search properties in the vicinity and if so how many? If there were any at all issued, as that is how it seems? 13. Were there any former RUC Officers/personnel now working for the PSNI, who were involved in this investigation? 14. Was there any effort made to ensure that this was a religiously balanced and send notice police investigation by way of the demographic community membership/identity of the Officers involved? 15. Why did a Senior Officer state that no “foul play” was suspected prior to an autopsy even being performed? Surely this is prejudicial and a very grave assumption to make in advance of proper ‘due process’? 16. Were the family of Noah informed of their right to a private post mortem investigation on the cause of death? 17. Did any Police Informants supply information connected to Noah’s disappearance and death during or after the investigation? 18. Were any efforts made to obtain finger prints and maximum forensic evidence of the specific location in which his remains were discovered? 19. Were any known paramilitaries in that area or surrounding areas questioned in connection with Noah’s death and disappearance? 20. Can the PSNI rule out categorically to a probe by your office that no state agents or police informants (or associates thereof) were involved in Noah’s death and disappearance? 21. Is the PSNI investigation now closed given that the remains were returned to the family and a funeral has taken place? If so, why did this happen in advance of an autopsy or a wider public campaign for information into the potentiality of “foul play”? 22. Were specialist Officers from neighbouring UK jurisdictions consulted at all during this search and investigation? If so, what was the nature of their advice? And why were they not directly brought in to the vicinity to look into the case when the UK has more experienced police experts in this field? 23. Were there any items of clothing or belongings that could have identified the religious background of Noah to locals in that vicinity? 24. Have the PSNI investigated any social media activity that may have led Noah to that area? If not, why? 25. At what date and time were specialist sniffer dogs used in the investigation? 26. Did the PSNI at all consider the prospect of a racial crime having been committed in the disappearance and death of Noah? Like many concerned people across this city, I would like an impartial and objective investigation to be launched independently by your office and under your remit because few people have confidence in either the PSNI’s handling or conclusions regarding this case. I would ask that you seek to act as quickly as possible to obtain this information and collate it together into a report that will satisfy the public interest clause. I suspect that there has been a potential miscarriage of justice in all of this, however, if the PSNI have acted professionally and with rigour and impartiality then surely they will have every desire to cooperate fully with your probe. If the Police are to expect the full confidence of the entire population then they must subject themselves to the fullest standards of accountability possible therein to obtain it.

CONCERNS OVER NOAH DEATH PROBE RAISED WITH POLICE OMBUDSMAN AS VILE RUMOURS POSTED ON SOCIAL MEDIA 

THE Police Ombudsman is “assessing” concerns raised surrounding the investigation into the death (murder) of 14-year-old Noah Donohoe.

Noah Donohoe’s body was discovered last Saturday.

The watchdog confirmed to the Sunday World it has been contacted by a number of people who have voiced “particular concerns” connected to the schoolboy’s tragic passing. The revelation comes just days after detectives returned to the spot where Noah was last seen alive as inquiries continue into circumstances of the teenager’s disappearance and death. On Thursday 2nd July 2020, PSNI/RUC officers spoke to residents in the Northwood Road area of North Belfast and again examined the enterence to the drain where Noah’s body was discovered last Saturday. The St Malachy’s pupil went missing from his South Belfast home six days previous on June 21st 2020 after going on a solo bike ride across the city. Two weeks on, unanswered questions remain around the tragedy. That includes why Noah travelled to the North Belfast area, how he came to discard his clothing and belongings, and exactly why he entered the storm drain. The mystery has fuelled unfounded theories which have been posted on social media, something which PSNI/RUC Superintendent Muir Clarke said has been “distressing” for Noah’s family.

Pro fide st patria

QUESTIONS REMAIN IN NOAH CASE

THE discovery of 14-year-old Noah Donohee’s body on Saturday, after a massive search operation in North Belfast over the last week, was a heart-breaking development, Noah, a student at St Malachy’s College who lived in the south of the city, had vanished in mysterious circumstances while cycling in the Shore Road district on the evening of Sunday June 21st. Hundreds of volunteers from across North Belfast and beyond came together to comb all the surrounding streets and parkland areas in carefully coordinated attempts to find any clues about the disappearance of the schoolboy. It was an outstanding response, involving all sections of society, and everyone who give up their time to support the emergency services deserves the highest praise. There were hopes that Noah might turn up safe and well but a specialist unit eventually located his body deep inside a 1km-long storm drain in the neighbourhood where he was last seen, with police saying ‘NO CRIME WAS SUSPECTED’.

The UVF (Ulster Volunteer Force) a Protestant/Loyalist illegal organisation, banned in the North of Ireland. Who have very close ties with the DUP

There will be enormous sympathy for his mother, Fiona, who previously sent out an emotional message of gratitude to all those who tried to find her only child, as well as his relatives and friends in the difficult days ahead. It is also essential that police disclose further details about what happened to Noah, as very little information about the case involving issues obviously in the public interest has so far been released. We do not know why a young boy, wearing a rucksack containing his laptop, travelled alone across the city on a Sunday evening, with detectives so far unable to establish if he was intending to meet anyone. It is also completely unclear how Noah apparently came to fall off his bike along North Queen Street, sustaining a head injury which may have caused a period of disorientation and resulted in him taking off his clothes. Police were correct to warn about the dangers of circulating rumours and speculation via social media while Noah was still missing, but, now that his body has been recovered, the basic facts of the tragedy require clarification. Noah was by all accounts a particularly gifted person in academic, musical and sporting terms, and the prayers of the entire community will with his his grieving family.

The Mount Vernon UVF were fully responsible for the murder  of Noah Donohee! I challenge the RUC/PSNI – Sinn Féin and also the DUP/UVF/UDA to challenge me. Trust me all the organisations named above will loose in their arguments with me I can guarantee that 110%. Or else you might find me dead. My life and my risk I won’t stand by and be brainwashed by the so-called rule of law. It’s a fucking joke!!!

Persuading parties that Black Lives Matter

OPINION 

LISBURN town council has voted that it “stands with Black Lives Matter”, but only after a UUP (Ulster Unionist Party) amended removed mention of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Racism and Sectarianism one of the fundamental problems in the North of Ireland. Protestants/Unionists have always regarded the Catholic community as second class citizens

This is a triumph of the peace politics  – higher standards will require a fundamental rethink. Among DUP objections to the original motion, proposed by the Alliance Party, were that Black Lives Matter is “anti-family” and “far left”. Abortion was also mentioned. Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Council had a debate along similar lines. A half-forgotten but suddenly pertinent detail of recent history is that ‘identity politics’, for want of a better term, was imported into the North of Ireland from the early 1980s by unionist thinkers, for want of a better term. Their intention was to modernise our politics along American lines, with themselves as the religious right, or at least the conservative right. The notion continues tripping unionists up to this day, including those barely aware they subscribe to it.
