It’s not only those falsely accused of rape who have been stitched up by inadequate, inept or corrupt policing and a rotten ‘justice’ system. Innocent prisoners are serving life sentences due to lack of disclosure.

Yes, Barry’s case was murder but, 18 years after his conviction we find a crucial piece of evidence was lost (not disclosed) that would have changed everything.

Barry is not mentioned in the article, why the video of him? He’s not connected to Jill Dando or the story. A photo of the tree would have been more relevant. 🌲

Interesting display of her thought process here given the fact she was up in arms over the fact the BBC failed to include her or her brother Barry George in their 20 year memorial dedicated to Jill Dando.

So up in arms in fact her and Barry were garnering attention over on ITV not long after.

In all the discussion of #JillDando murder, little attention to HOW she was tracked. New evidence and analysis suggests phone hacking as likely as ‘lone stalker’. Will the Met now revisit the evidence?

What the article says is:

“As Christian counselors, pastors and people helpers we often have a hard time discerning between an evil heart and an ordinary sinner who messes up, who isn’t perfect, and full of weakness and sin.
I think one of the reasons we don’t “see” evil is because we find it so difficult to believe that evil individuals actually exist. We can’t imagine someone deceiving us with no conscience, hurting others with no remorse, spinning outrageous fabrications to ruin someone’s reputation, or pretending he or she is spiritually committed yet has no fear of God before his or her eyes.
The Bible clearly tells us that among God’s people there are wolves that wear sheep’s clothing (Jeremiah 23:14; Titus 1:10; Revelations 2:2). It’s true that every human heart is inclined toward sin (Romans 3:23), and that includes evil (Genesis 8:21; James 1:4). We all miss God’ mark of moral perfection. However, most ordinary sinners do not happily indulge evil urges, nor do we feel good about having them. We feel ashamed and guilty, rightly so (Romans 7:19–21). These things are not true of the evil heart.
Here are five indicators that you may be dealing with an evil heart rather than an ordinary sinful heart. If so, it requires a radically different treatment approach.

And what she missed out are:

“Do you know someone like this?
If you are working with someone who exhibits these characteristics, it’s important that you confront them head on. You must name evil for what it is. The longer you try to reason with them or show mercy towards them, the more you, as the Christian counselor, will become a pawn in his or her game.
They want you to believe that:

1) Their horrible actions should have no serious or painful consequences.
When they say “I’m sorry,” they look to you as the pastor or Christian counselor to be their advocate for amnesty with the person he or she has harmed. They believe grace means they are immediately granted immunity from the relational fallout of their serious sin. They believe forgiveness entitles them to full reconciliation and will pressure you and their victim to comply.
The Bible warns us saying, “But when grace is shown to the wicked, they do not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness they go on doing evil and do not regard the majesty of the Lord (Isaiah 26:10).
The Bible tells us that talking doesn’t wake up evil people, but painful consequences might. Jesus didn’t wake up the Pharisee’s with his talk nor did God’s counsel impact Cain (Genesis 4). In addition, the Bible shows us that when someone is truly sorry for the pain they have caused, he or she is eager to make amends to those they have harmed by their sin (see Zacchaeus’ response when he repented of his greed in Luke 19).

Tim Keller writes,
“If you have been the victim of a heinous crime. If you have suffered violence, and the perpetrator (or even the judge) says, ‘Sorry, can’t we just let it go?’ You would say, ‘No, that would be an injustice.’ Your refusal would rightly have nothing to do with bitterness or vengeance. If you have been badly wronged, you know that saying sorry is never enough. Something else is required—some kind of costly payment must be made to put things right.”1
As Biblical counselors let’s not collude with the evil one by turning our attention to the victim, requiring her to forgive, to forget, to trust again when there has been no evidence of inner change. Proverbs says, “Trusting in a treacherous man in time of trouble is like a bad tooth or a foot that slips” (Proverbs. 25:19). It’s foolishness.
The evil person will also try to get you to believe...

2) That if I talk like a gospel-believing Christian I am one, even if my actions don’t line up with my talk.
Slide 9 of 10
Remember, Satan masquerades as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:13–15). He knows more true doctrine than you or I will ever know, but his heart is wicked. Why? Because although he knows the truth, he does not believe it or live it.
The Bible has some strong words for those whose actions do not match their talk (1 John 3:17,18; Jeremiah 7:8,10; James 1:22, 26). John the Baptist said it best when he admonished the religious leaders, “Prove by the way you live that you have repented of your sins and turned to God” (Luke 3:8).
If week after week you hear the talk but there is no change in the walk, you have every reason to question someone’s relationship with God.

Can an evil person really change?
Part of our maturity as spiritual leaders is that we have been trained to discern between good and evil. Why is that so important? It’s important because evil usually pretends to be good, and without discernment we can be easily fooled (Hebrews 5:14).
When you confront evil, chances are good that the evil heart will stop counseling with you because the darkness hates the light (John 3:20) and the foolish and evil heart reject correction (Proverbs 9:7,8). But that outcome is far better than allowing the evil heart to believe you are on his or her side, or that “he’s not that bad” or “that he’s really sorry” or “that he’s changing” when, in fact, he is not.
Daniel says, “[T]he wicked will continue to be wicked” (Daniel 12:10), which begs the question, do you think an evil person can really change?

In the old days, motive was very important.
The only person with motive and reason for an outpouring of such irrational anger and desperation on such a terrifying scale was poor, sick Sheila. Her family were gently trying to persuade her to let her boys go into foster care.

“A middle aged man told a jury today that he was sexually abused by his German teacher at a Hemel Hempstead boarding school three decades ago.

He alleged he could smell alcohol on the breath of David Yeld when he climbed onto the bunk bed in his dormitory at the privately-run Westbrook Hay Preparatory School.

The teacher is said to have got under the duvet, pulled the 10-year-old’s pyjama trousers down and touched his penis, St Albans Crown Court heard.

David Yeld, 59, who now lives in Salcombe Regis, Devon, pleads not guilty to one charge of indecent assault between October 5 1982 and October 7 1983.

Giving evidence on a police video, the man, who is now 42, said he was on the top of a bunk bed to the right of a door in the dormitory after lights out sometime between 8 and 9pm.

He went on: “Someone came in. I saw Mr Yeld my German teacher. He stood there for a little while. He came up to the bed. You could smell alcohol on him. It was like he had been drinking beers.

“Then he climbed into my bed and got under the covers. He started to take my top off. I tried to get away. I was saying: ‘Stop’. I can’t remember if he said anything. He pulled my trousers down and started touching me.

“I think he was trying to kiss me. He had a horrible moustache. I wriggled down to the bottom of the bed. I don’t know if the other boys were asleep or pretending to be asleep. I got off the bed and ran out of the door.”

The man said he ran to the office of the then headmaster Andrew Wright.

The court then heard that Wright himself was to later kill himself after being accused of sexually abusing children.

Prosecutor Laura Blackband said the boy’s parents spoke to the head at the time. Mr Yeld was dismissed from the school, but they decided it was not in their child’s best interests to contact the police at that time. She said he went to the police in May 2013. “It has preyed on his mind and blighted his life to a degree,” she said.

The jury heard that Mr Yeld was arrested in June 2013. At the time he was working as a supply teacher. He refused to answer police questions on that occasion, but when he was interviewed a second time in February 2014, he said what happened was a “practical joke.”

Mr Yeld told the officer he had been drinking with the headmaster and had gone to the dormitory by mistake and decided to play a joke by grabbing the boy’s clothing. He denied any sexual activity.

Steven Oldfield
A MAN caused the car his wife was driving to flip over and land on its roof when he pulled the handbrake after she refused to stop the vehicle during a row.

Steven Oldfield took the ‘highly irresponsible’ action in Southsea as his wife was giving him a lift to Fratton train station in Portsmouth so he could go to a rugby match at Twickenham.

After a trial, the 58-year-old retired sound engineer was found guilty of causing a danger to other road users by interfering with a motor vehicle.
Portsmouth Crown Court heard Oldfield was a passenger in the car being driven by his wife when an argument broke out.

A debate between the pair over picking up others or meeting other people en route, and what the best arrangement was for doing so, became heated during the journey to the station.

Oldfield eventually decided that he wanted to get out of the vehicle and shouted at his wife to stop the car.

Addressing Oldfield, Judge Roger Hetherington, sentencing, said: ‘The argument got rather heated to the point you decided that you wanted the car to stop and you wanted to get out of the car, and so you shouted at your wife to stop the car.’

He added: ‘You shouted at her to stop the car and when she didn’t you pulled on the handbrake sharply, causing the car to go out of control, hit a kerb and roll onto its roof in the middle of the street.’

The court head that Oldfield has spent his time doing worthwhile work with schools and other people, mainly on a voluntary basis, since he has retired.

He has no previous criminal convictions.

Judge Hetherington gave Oldfield a 12-month community order.

He was ordered to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work in the next year for committing the offence on April 27 last year.

He must pay £1,000 in court costs and was banned from driving for six months.

Judge Hetherington added: ‘It was fortunate indeed that someone was not seriously injured.

‘Your wife was slightly injured.

‘You yourself may have been slightly injured, but it was fortunate that 
no other bystanders or other 
vehicles were damaged or injured in any way.

‘Nevertheless it was a highly irresponsible thing to have done, for which there was no excuse whatsoever, and it could have caused a very serious accident.

I accept at the time you may have had a very stressful day the day before.’

Judge Hetherington added that there is no suggestion that Oldfield, of Lindley Avenue, in Southsea, who represented himself at the sentencing hearing, is a dangerous or careless driver.

But he said: ‘The court must take a serious view of these things.’

https://www.portsmouth.co.uk/news/crime/portsmouth-man-caused-car-to-flip-over-after-putting-on-handbrake-during-row-1-6326919/amp#click=https://t.co/Kci9EopJ95


“A husband who flipped the family car during a row with his wife after criticising her driving is fighting in court to prove he acted "reasonably".
Steven Oldfield and his wife Catherine were in their Kia Rio on the way to a rugby match in April 2013, with her at the wheel.
He said they had a "catastrophic disagreement" over her handling of the car and she would not stop and let him out.
As she accelerated, Mr Oldfield pulled on the handbrake - causing the car to "clip the kerb" and slide along the road on its side before rolling onto its roof.
Both husband and wife suffered minor injuries in the crash and Mr Oldfield, of Southsea, was arrested at the scene. He insisted that what he did was "reasonable" and that he had "no choice" but to pull on the handbrake.
However, he was convicted of causing danger to road users by interfering with a motor vehicle at Portsmouth Crown Court in August last year.
He was given a community order, with 100 hours of unpaid work, although that sentence was later reduced to a conditional discharge.
But Mr Oldfield said the criminal conviction has blighted his life and "destroyed" his business and asked London's Appeal Court to clear his name.
The court heard the married couple were driving to Fratton railway station, in Portsmouth, on their way to the Army and Navy rugby match at Twickenham on April 27, 2013.
Judge Roger Hetherington, at the crown court, described how a "rather heated argument" broke out between the couple over arrangements for picking up or meeting others en route.
Mr Oldfield eventually decided that he wanted to get out of the vehicle and "shouted at his wife to stop the car".
Outside the Appeal Court, Mr Oldfield said emotions in the car had been running high after a family funeral the day before the accident.
"I decided she was unfit to drive and told her we'd missed our train anyway... I tried to stop the car with the handbrake. I had no choice. My head made a large bulge in the roof," after the car flipped over, he said.
But, when passing sentence on Mr Oldfield, Judge Hetherington had told him: "It was fortunate indeed that someone was not seriously injured.
"It was fortunate that no other bystanders or other vehicles were damaged or injured in any way.
"Nevertheless it was a highly irresponsible thing to have done, for which there was no excuse whatsoever, and it could have caused a very serious accident."
Addressing the Appeal Court in person, Mr Oldfield criticised the accuracy of police evidence and insisted that his behaviour was reasonable.

Imo Michael Naughton’s tweet(s) do not appear to be “empowering innocence”

The CCRC are a corrupt bunch of gravy train dippers who prevent corrupt convictions from coming to light and it is about time people realised they exist to line their pockets and protect corrupt public officials.

Copious research has been conducted. The @ccrcupdate is fully aware & fully understands how s.13 (real possibility test) fails innocent applicants. Yet, it continues to deny & defend the indefensible. Mass public awareness raising initiatives are needed if there is to be change. https://twitter.com/hanksoff03/status/1174633717207314432

A MAN caused the car his wife was driving to flip over and land on its roof when he pulled the handbrake after she refused to stop the vehicle during a row.

Steven Oldfield took the ‘highly irresponsible’ action in Southsea as his wife was giving him a lift to Fratton train station in Portsmouth so he could go to a rugby match at Twickenham.

After a trial, the 58-year-old retired sound engineer was found guilty of causing a danger to other road users by interfering with a motor vehicle.
Portsmouth Crown Court heard Oldfield was a passenger in the car being driven by his wife when an argument broke out.

A debate between the pair over picking up others or meeting other people en route, and what the best arrangement was for doing so, became heated during the journey to the station.

Oldfield eventually decided that he wanted to get out of the vehicle and shouted at his wife to stop the car.

Addressing Oldfield, Judge Roger Hetherington, sentencing, said: ‘The argument got rather heated to the point you decided that you wanted the car to stop and you wanted to get out of the car, and so you shouted at your wife to stop the car.’

He added: ‘You shouted at her to stop the car and when she didn’t you pulled on the handbrake sharply, causing the car to go out of control, hit a kerb and roll onto its roof in the middle of the street.’

The court head that Oldfield has spent his time doing worthwhile work with schools and other people, mainly on a voluntary basis, since he has retired.

He has no previous criminal convictions.

Judge Hetherington gave Oldfield a 12-month community order.

He was ordered to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work in the next year for committing the offence on April 27 last year.

He must pay £1,000 in court costs and was banned from driving for six months.

Judge Hetherington added: ‘It was fortunate indeed that someone was not seriously injured.

‘Your wife was slightly injured.

‘You yourself may have been slightly injured, but it was fortunate that 
no other bystanders or other 
vehicles were damaged or injured in any way.

‘Nevertheless it was a highly irresponsible thing to have done, for which there was no excuse whatsoever, and it could have caused a very serious accident.

I accept at the time you may have had a very stressful day the day before.’

Judge Hetherington added that there is no suggestion that Oldfield, of Lindley Avenue, in Southsea, who represented himself at the sentencing hearing, is a dangerous or careless driver.

But he said: ‘The court must take a serious view of these things.’

“A husband who flipped the family car during a row with his wife after criticising her driving is fighting in court to prove he acted "reasonably".
Steven Oldfield and his wife Catherine were in their Kia Rio on the way to a rugby match in April 2013, with her at the wheel.
He said they had a "catastrophic disagreement" over her handling of the car and she would not stop and let him out.
As she accelerated, Mr Oldfield pulled on the handbrake - causing the car to "clip the kerb" and slide along the road on its side before rolling onto its roof.
Both husband and wife suffered minor injuries in the crash and Mr Oldfield, of Southsea, was arrested at the scene. He insisted that what he did was "reasonable" and that he had "no choice" but to pull on the handbrake.
However, he was convicted of causing danger to road users by interfering with a motor vehicle at Portsmouth Crown Court in August last year.
He was given a community order, with 100 hours of unpaid work, although that sentence was later reduced to a conditional discharge.
But Mr Oldfield said the criminal conviction has blighted his life and "destroyed" his business and asked London's Appeal Court to clear his name.
The court heard the married couple were driving to Fratton railway station, in Portsmouth, on their way to the Army and Navy rugby match at Twickenham on April 27, 2013.
Judge Roger Hetherington, at the crown court, described how a "rather heated argument" broke out between the couple over arrangements for picking up or meeting others en route.
Mr Oldfield eventually decided that he wanted to get out of the vehicle and "shouted at his wife to stop the car".
Outside the Appeal Court, Mr Oldfield said emotions in the car had been running high after a family funeral the day before the accident.
"I decided she was unfit to drive and told her we'd missed our train anyway... I tried to stop the car with the handbrake. I had no choice. My head made a large bulge in the roof," after the car flipped over, he said.
But, when passing sentence on Mr Oldfield, Judge Hetherington had told him: "It was fortunate indeed that someone was not seriously injured.
"It was fortunate that no other bystanders or other vehicles were damaged or injured in any way.
"Nevertheless it was a highly irresponsible thing to have done, for which there was no excuse whatsoever, and it could have caused a very serious accident."
Addressing the Appeal Court in person, Mr Oldfield criticised the accuracy of police evidence and insisted that his behaviour was reasonable.
Lady Justice Rafferty, sitting with Mr Justice William Davis and Judge David Stockdale QC dented his hopes, when she said: "The issue for the jury was very simple.
"Did Mr Oldfield have any reasonable cause to pull on the handbrake and did he do it in circumstances which it would have been obvious to a reasonable person were dangerous?"
Mr Oldfield had breached his "clear duty" to behave safely on the roads and there were "no grounds" on which to successfully challenge the jury's verdict. But outside court, Mr Oldfield vowed to fight on to clear his name.

Judges have many biases as they are people who are tainted because of their station and the power they hold. My Trial Judge went on to falsify and deplete over a hundred pages of the T/Trans before they arrived at the Appeal Court so the independence of the Judiciary is a myth.
