"The Angels will return; and when you see the one who's meant to help you - you will weep with joy..."
"The Angels Will Return" : The Alice Gross Case, Ritual Murder and the Strategy of Tension from Spike EP on Vimeo.
"The Angels will return; and when you see the one who's meant to help you - you will weep with joy..."
It's a distinctly postmodern phenomenon that in the media charade presented via the mass media whenever now there is a search for a missing child (roughly once every 12 months), the police pretending to investigate it now will always issue statements to the media in press conferences using the personal pronouns "I", and "me", rather than "we" in reference to their so-called efforts in this investigation.
Is this because "we" sounds once again too reminiscent of the collective hive mind of the Brotherhoods...?
We are the Police. Resistance is futile.
That they are not trying, and conspicuously misdirecting outside scrutiny so as to confuse activity with productivity or progress is obvious - during the Yorkshire Ripper series, the floor of Leeds CID had to be reinforced to support the weight of all the paper the investigation had accumulated; here, Police brag in dead-pan fashion about how many tens of thousands of CCTV surveillance tapes they have sat down and reviewed, and the countless manhours wasted on such a pointless exercise. This is how they lie, right -
They said "We have reviewed over 40,000 hrs of CCTV footage from over 150 cameras, that's more hours than were reviewed for the riots of 2010 - but it's a massive, massive task".
It's also completely unnecessary - they know ever she appears in the footage, on what cameras and at what time, and where she stops appearing on them.
So you don't need to look at 40,000 hrs of footage you need to look at probably less than 4.
The average person living in London will appear on CCTV between 70 to 100 times a day.
And whenever anything like this happens, eight they relevant cameras aren't working, or have been switched off.
They know exactly what happened to her - this is all just fluff to divert suspicion away from the knowledge that they actually have the tape and it contradicts their story of a Nasty Immigrant Builder (His NIBS..?) from the East.
This sinister brand of Orientalism is all-pervasive - for the citizens of the former Soviet Union, they may (and do) certainly care a lot to distinguish between a Lithuanian, a Bulgarian, Romanian, Moldovan or Transnistrian, but to the average man in the street in today's Britain, when they hear "Latvian Convicted Murderer", on some level, they hear "Russia".
As for the late, unfortunate patsy, Arnis Zalkalns, many, many things about his pre-packaged back story simply do not add up - again, it may make perfect sense to the British public that "of course" some backward banana republic like Latvia would release a convicted murderer from jail after serving only 7 years of a 12 year sentence, and then give him a passport and not keep track of where he is or what he is up to, but to anyone who grew up inside the former Soviet Union, or any other authoritarian state bureaucracy, the idea of just loosing interest in supposedly violent criminals upon their release is just laughable and insulting all at once - one area of Soviet Society that was NEVER at risk of creeping institutional incompetence was offender management and corrections.
Having made the junket/wild goose chase over to the Baltic State, the Latvian Police ostensibly appear to be conducting themselves with far greater professional integrity than their British counterparts - the line being, he hasn't committed any crimes here, he's not on our radar, we're not concerned about him, and I can't tell you anything further than that about any criminal intelligence we may have on him, since you are not authorised to have it - its confidential.
Implicit also in that answer is the suggestion that had he re-entered Latvia, his passport would have been flagged upon arrival, so why are you here...? And since he has been charged with no crime in Britain and no European Arrest Warrant has been issued, why should we tell you anything.
The Mother of his dead wife provides just the sort of soundbites one would expect from the Mother of a murdered daughter who feels he is to blame - and, understanding the Stasi-esque and ever-present BBC guidelines, we see a recurring trend emerging in their carefully worded statements.
Everyone knows that to receive a murder conviction does not make you a murderer - it does not work like that.
Reality will not cleave to Man-Law - in law, you can be a convicted murderer, but being a murderer in law does not infer that you are a murderer in fact.
The words (and tenses) that the BBC, and to a lesser extent the police use in reference to Arnis' conviction for the murder of his wife raise more questions than they purport to answer from only a superficial reading - they steer noticably clear from such declarative statements as "He is a convicted murderer"; rather, they use the form "he HAS a murder conviction", "he WAS convicted of murder", "he RECEIVED a murder conviction"....

The JNF has illegally expropriated most of the land belonging to the 372 Palestinian villages which had been ethnically cleansed by Zionist forces in 1948. The owners of this land and their descendants today constitute over half of the UN-registered Palestinian refugees. Today the JNF controls over 2,500 sq.km. of Palestinian land, which it leases to Jews only, as well as bulldozing more Palestinian villages. It also planted 100 parks on Palestinian land, especially to disguise destroyed Palestinian villages, such as the wood "God TV" planted on the village of El Araqib, which has been repeatedly destroyed in 2011-2012.
In addition, the JNF has a long record of discrimination against Palestinian citizens of Israel, as reported by the UN. The Fund has also extended its range by directly or by proxy operating in the occupied West Bank [including occupied East Jerusalem]. All this is in clear violation of International Law and particularly of the Fourth Geneva Convention, which forbids confiscation of property and the settling of the occupier's citizens on occupied land.
Ethnic cleansing, expropriation of property and destruction of houses are war crimes. Moreover, the use of tax-exempt donations to these ends violates the JNF is domiciled.
JNF greenwashing (by planting trees of on stolen land) must be condemned. The Fund's crimes do not deserve to be praised. This is our moral responsibility towards Palestinians who have been discriminated against and denied their basic human rights from the 1948 Al-Nakba (Catastrophe) until the present.

"The sex game cover is a very useful mechanism in a murder. Not only does it provide a disguise for the actual means and method of death, it trashes the reputation of the victim and blunts the energy of any subsequent investigation."
Crispin Black - former government intelligence adviser

ADVERSE REACTIONS -
"Male and female sexual dysfunction with SSRIs— Although changes in sexual desire, sexual performance, and sexual satisfaction often occur as manifestations of a psychiatric disorder, they may also be a consequence of pharmacologic treatment. In particular, some evidence suggests that SSRIs can cause such untoward sexual experiences.
Reliable estimates of the incidence and severity of untoward experiences involving sexual desire, performance, and satisfaction are difficult to obtain, however, in part because patients and physicians may be reluctant to discuss them.
Accordingly, estimates of the incidence of untoward sexual experience and performance, cited in product labeling, are likely to underestimate their actual incidence.
"Police won't confirm the cause of death - but they've taken a leather belt into possession for scientific examination."
"In a July 1998 interview that appeared in a fan newsletter, Colin Diamond, Hutchence's attorney and former executor of his estate, was asked about the vocalist's September 1996 opium bust and his defense that the narcotic was planted by police.
"Perhaps you should try and figure it out for yourself!", Diamond snapped.
"Got off, GOT OFF?? I think the question should be who tried to get him on!
Peaches Geldof inquest told she hid heroin in sweet box
Peaches Geldof's husband Tom Cohen says the 25-year-old presenter had started using heroin again in February this year as inquest hears there was no evidence she intended to take her own life
The fatal heroin dose that killed Peaches Geldof was discovered in a box containing sweets, an inquest has heard.
The 25-year-old mother of two was found dead in April in the spare bedroom of her home in Kent, with her 11-month old son Phaedra, close by in another room.
Having successfully beaten her heroin addiction several months before, the inquest heard she had begun using again in February this year.
Police who searched the house after her death discovered almost seven grams of high purity heroin worth around £550 hidden in a cloth bag in a cupboard.
Elsewhere they also found almost 80 needles and a number of burnt spoons, used by addicts to prepare the drug for injection.
The syringe containing the fatal dose was discovered in a cardboard box next to the bed containing sweets.
Miss Geldof’s own mother, Paula Yates died of a heroin overdose in 2000 and the hearing heard how on the night before her death, she had posted a picture of herself as a child with her late mother on a social networking page, with the message: “Me and my mum.”
At the full inquest into her tragic death, the coroner for North West Kent, Roger Hatch, said Miss Geldof had been a regular heroin user, but had been successfully receiving treatment and had been free of the drug just four months before her death.
Her husband, Thomas Cohen, who discovered her body, told the inquest that in November 2013, routine tests had indicated that she was free of heroin.
He said she had also been working to reduce her dose of the heroin substitute, Methadone, prescribe to addicts.
But in February this year Mr Cohen said he had found messages on her phone, suggesting she had resumed her use of the drug.
After confronting her he said she had retrieved a quantity of heroin from the loft of their home and had flushed it down the lavatory.
The inquest heard how her tolerance to the effects of heroin would have been much reduced during the period when she was no longer using and that, combined with the high 61 per cent purity of the narcotics found, would have contributed to the fatal overdose.
Describing the scene at the four-bedroom house in Wrotham, Kent, Detective Chief Inspector Paul Fotheringham, told the inquest in Gravesend, Miss Geldof had been found in a spare room, which was often used by her or her husband when they wanted to share a bed with one of their children.
DCI Fotheringham said: “Peaches was wearing a grey dress and a long sleeved striped top. Peaches was located perched on the side edge of the bed with her left arm hanging down to the floor with her right foot tucked underneath her.
“She was slumped forward onto her front with her left arm draped over an open laptop computer
“Underneath Peaches body was an Apple iPhone, a packet of cigarettes and a pair of black tights with a knot tied into them. Also on the bed was a small clear coloured cap thought to have come from a syringe.
“Underneath the bed a dessert spoon was located with visible burn marks on the underside and a small amount of a brown residue on the upper side.
“Next to the bed and within reaching distance of Peaches was an open brown cardboard box containing sweets; a capped syringe was located in this box
“It was noted that there was a small amount of a brown fluid left in the main chamber and another small amount of residue/fluid inside the cap.
“This residue was tested by Forensic scientists who have confirmed that the brown residue found does contain traces of diamorphine, which is commonly known as heroin.”
DCI Fotheringham added: “Detailed searches of the whole premises took place and located heroin and various items used for the preparation and consumption of heroin.
“The major discovery in the second of four bedrooms was a black cloth bag stored in a cupboard over the bedroom door.
“Located within this cloth bag was part of a plastic bag tied together by a dark hair band, the bag contained a brown powder. This powder was later examined by a Forensic Scientist Dr Peter Cain.
“He confirmed that the brown powder was 6.91 grams of Diamorphine, more commonly known as Heroin with a purity of 61 per cent.”
The inquest was told that street heroin usually has a purity level of around 26 per cent.
DCI Fotheringham said there was an ongoing police investigation to establish who had supplied Miss Geldof with the heroin but no arrests had been made.
The inquest heard there was no evidence that Miss Geldof had intended to take her own life.
Summing up the findings, Mr Hatch said: “It is said that the death of Peaches Geldof is history repeating itself.
"This is not entirely so as by November last year she had ceased to take heroin as a result of the considerable treatment and counselling she had received."
“This was a significant achievement for her. For reasons we will never know, prior to her death she returned to taking heroin again.
“I am left with no alternative than to record that the death of Peaches Honeyblossom Cohen-Geldof was drugs related. May I express my sympathies to the family.”
Mr Cohen left the inquest without comment.
