Star date: 16th June 2012

JUSTICE FOR GRAINGER HITS MANCHESTER PICCADILLY

Fathers Day Vigil
Sunday June 17th Noon
Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester

Last March, Lower Broughton's Anthony Grainger was shot dead by police as he sat unarmed in a car in Culcheth, in what his partner, Gail Hadfield, says was a "pre-planned execution".

Tomorrow, at noon in Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester, hundreds of people are expected to take part in a peaceful Fathers Day vigil in support of families and friends of all those who have lost their lives while in contact with the police.

In May, the Justice4Grainger campaign was out in force at May Day rallies in Salford and Manchester, raising awareness of the fight to reveal the truth of why Lower Broughton's unarmed Anthony Grainger was shot dead by police (see previous Salford Star article here) .

Leaflets given out to workers and activists at the rallies made horrific reading…

"On Saturday 3rd March 2012 at 7.20pm an incident took place at Jackson Street car park in Culcheth. Where a man was murdered by Greater Manchester Police. After using excessive tactics and force (blocking in the vehicle, shooting out two tyres with a shotgun, a CS gas canister was also deployed by hand into the vehicle), a fatal shot with a Heckler and Koch MP5 went directly to the heart of an unharmed man…"

The Justice4Grainger campaign was launched to find out the true facts of what happened that night and to bring those responsible to justice. Anthony Grainger's partner, Gail Hadfield, told the Salford Star that it was a "pre-planned execution…"

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has already announced that it will be pursuing a criminal investigation against the GMP officer who fired the shot that killed Anthony Grainger but Gail wants the investigation to go further...

"To get exactly what we want is going to be very hard" she added "because I want the police officers who gave the orders and issued the guns and bullets to be charged with joint enterprise, and I want the police officers on the night, the surveillance officer and the 16 armed officers to be charged with conspiracy and to get that is going to be quite hard."

Following fundraising events for Anthony Grainger's family, the campaign continues tomorrow, Sunday June 17th, with a noon vigil at Piccadilly Gardens in Manchester.

"We're all going to be sat down in silence, all peaceful, with our candles held high and our banners for everyone who's lost their lives in police custody" said Gail "There will be no trouble, no fighting, no riots, everything we're doing is peaceful. We don't want revenge, we want answers and justice…"

Dear Police State Resident. You want to pay more tax? No! Never! So where then does law and order come from? Who, of any intelligence and integrity is going to sign up for the only job available to UK citizens where his life is under threat every second of his working day .....for £23,000 a year? Even the Army only sees limited action. Answer, either a criminal with a private agenda, or an intellectual retard. This is why they reduced the entrance qualification to the Police to ZERO GCESs. They prefer backward applicants to criminal ones. Because, if we want quality we are going to have to fund £150,000 a year for a Police salary; that is what I would demand for that job. That means more taxes. But while the entire English nation is made up of greedy para-criminals who want everything at a cost of nothing that will never happen. You cannot blame the police for being themselves, incapable or rotten. It is the parasitic tax (non)payer who should be in the dock!

A known criminal with a record of car thefts, drug dealer, hanging out with armed robbers. He got what they have dished out in the past. Ambulance chasing family now just cashing in. Another scum bag off the streets.

One less criminal on the streets, got what he deserves. Is a risk you take if you break the law. He should have been sat in a stolen car.

These are just the events that occur when criminal ,low-intelligence ,violent, vicious,brainwashed cretins are recruited into the police . These malleable cretin-plods are readily available for assaults , fit-ups , framings , even murders . The rest of the plods are then free to continue their war against the motorist , as Government Revenue Collector Extortionists .

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.
