A Third Post Mortem

The cop’s briefs have gotten another post mortem granted (the third!)… anyway might it be worth contacting the IPCC and insist they have someone there too, after all they were barred from the first one (and again worth noting the double standards here).

A third postmortem examination is to be carried out tomorrow on the body of Ian Tomlinson, the newspaper seller who died shortly after a police officer hit him from behind during the G20 protests on 1 April.

Lawyers representing a Metropolitan police officer who is being questioned in connection with the incident have appointed a third pathologist and requested that the City of London coroner allow the test to be conducted. The officer has been interviewed under caution on suspicion of manslaughter.

The coroner, Paul Major, has agreed to the third examination. It will be carried out in the presence of a fourth pathologist, who will serve as an observer for the police.

Two previous postmortem examinations came to radically different conclusions over what caused Tomlinson’s death. Dr Freddy Patel said Tomlinson’s liver and heart had been diseased, and found the cause of death was hardening of the arteries.

But Dr Nathaniel Cary, appointed by the Tomlinson family to conduct an independent examination, concluded that the cause of death had been abdominal haemorrhage

    The IPCC eventually contacted me after they had been given my details 2 wks ago and I have already written to them as well! Maybe they are sooooh bogged down with thousands of complaints that it is breaking the £32million budget!

    Keystone Cops Investigators they are. They had got my surname wrong. I thought my spelling was bad but gee..I am pleased someone out there is worse than me! With their £32m budget…spell checker obv. doesn’t come with the computer packages.

    They have promised to ring me…..sometime….. maybe….future….. this century…..next century…. who knows…! I’ll probably get more sense from a Mystic Meg and a crystal ball…..

    Just on the issue of the Police Fed, they will have made darn sure the cops will have the best legal advice from a QC!
