Another Metropolitan Police officer is charged with rape

It seems Vox Political was right again.

I wrote, a few days ago, that after Wayne Couzens was jailed for life for the kidnap, rape and murder of Sarah Everard, a culture of fear would settle on women in the UK.

I stated that “women will be left in greater fear of violence against them than ever – not because of men, as some in politics and the media are signalling, but because of the police.”

I continued: “You can bet the Met won’t do anything to change that. If you want proof, all you have to do is wait for the reports of the next crimes committed by officers of the Metropolitan Police.”

Well, we didn’t have to wait long, did we?

David Carrick, 46, of Stevenage, Hertfordshire, was arrested on Saturday over an alleged offence in St Albans on 4 September last year.

Mr Carrick, who is based within the Met’s Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command, was charged with rape by Hertfordshire Constabulary on Sunday.

I am legally bound to stress that the new allegations against David Carrick, a Met police officer from the same unit as Couzens, are only allegations at this time; he has been accused but any guilt or innocence must be established after a trial.

An initial court hearing was set to take place today (October 4).

Met Commissioner Cressida Dick has put out the usual circular that she releases when claims are made that harm her organisation:

“I am deeply concerned to hear the news today that an officer from the Met’s Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command has been arrested and now charged with this serious offence.

“I fully recognise the public will be very concerned too. Criminal proceedings must now take their course so I am unable to comment any further at this stage.”

But we have to wonder how long she can stay in her post. The Met’s reputation has been dragged through the mud since she has been in charge and she has made no visible attempt to change its culture of abuse.
