JUSTICE 4 GRAINGER CAMPAIGN TAKES TO SALFORD PRECINCT
 

Star date: 23rd September 2012

JUSTICE4GRAINGER CAMPAIGN WANTS POLICE CHARGED WITH MURDER

"I just want this police officer charged because he's killed my son for nothing" Marina Schofield, mother of Anthony Grainger

Following this week's `not guilty' verdict for the men who were in the same car as Anthony Grainger when he was shot dead by police last March, campaigners were out on Salford Precinct yesterday. They were handing out leaflets and getting shoppers to sign petitions to keep up the pressure on the authorities to charge the police officer who shot the unarmed Salford man.

On Friday, a jury at Manchester Crown Court cleared three men of plotting a robbery last March when armed police swooped on their car parked up in Culcheth. The three men accused were David Totton, Joseph Travers and, bizarrely, Anthony Grainger, the Salford man shot dead by police during the incident.

"They indicted my son which I thought was wrong, he's dead, he can't defend himself" said his mother Marina Schofield who was handing out Justice4Grainger leaflets on Salford Precinct yesterday together with many campaigners.

"He wasn't doing anything wrong, it was proved yesterday in court" she added "I just want this police officer charged, so with this coming yesterday I think they should charge him now. My son was murdered on 3rd March 2012. We're just down here to get people to sign petitions and we've got campaigners here handing the leaflets out."

Campaigner, Wesley Ahmed, underlined the point… "The case was run on conspiracy to commit a robbery and there was no evidence at all" he said They've tried to pull the wool over the jury's eyes but the jury has seen straight through it. It was a unanimous decision…all `not guilty'.

"The trial should never have gone ahead because the police have shoved the two witnesses who saw the police kill Anthony Grainger into the dock" he added "It was fixed to get a conviction against the boys who were with Anthony, to justify why he was shot dead, why he was killed, why he was brutally murdered."

The `not guilty' verdicts came as media coverage was reaching fever pitch about the killing of two police women in Hyde and the possible future arming of all police officers.

"Our condolences go out to the families of the two police women who got shot dead" explained Wesley "But the problem we've got is that when the police commit an atrocity, like murdering somebody like Anthony Grainger or Mark Duggan, there's never been one conviction. So we're trying to change it so the law stands for everybody."

The Independent Police Complaints Commission is currently investigating Anthony Grainger's death and will soon present its findings to the Crown Prosecution Service which will decide whether to prosecute the police officer concerned.

No firearms found at the scene, bad day for the police. Mr Grainger like all his ilk was living on the clock. He would have turned up dead eventually. Man lists his profession as "handyman", drives a 6.3L Mercedes with all the bolt on trimmings. Associate of David Totten and the Travers family. If the locals have sympathy for the crime families of Salford then the locals are ruined.

I WOULD STRONGLY ADVISE THIS CAMPAIGN NOT COMPARE OR CONFLATE THEIR OWN CASE WITH THAT OF OTHER INCIDENTS OR PEOPLE INVOLVED IN POLICE KILLINGS. Mark Duggan for example was proved to have been in possession of a firearm a jury found the supplier of that firearm guilty this week. Better for your case which is a strong one to be judged on its own merits. Furthermore you should allow the IPCC to come to conclusion before you draw your own of a whitewash. See what their conclusion of the evidence is then make a response not before otherwise you are putting the horse before the cart. You should eabide by the principal of innocence until proven otherwise anything else casts you in the role of a lynch mob not ready to apply the same burden of proof and due process you would expect yourselves if accussed of a serious crime. Once you have followed this advice continue demonstrating and campaigning because Prima Facie you have a strong case.

A man is shot dead then indicted for a crime for which the CPP decide he is posthumously tried for and found not guilty and still no answers forthcoming-and yet the full wrath of the police force comes down on a government minister who they claim calls them a few choice names....says it all really.

Sirs, I am today writing to The Home Secretary to call for an independent inquiry into the facts of this concerning matter. In doing this I add most sincere condolences to the family of Anthony. It is essential that whoever becomes Greater Manchester's PCC Police and Crime Commissioner in November is called upon to visit public calls for investigations that must be made transparent. Otherwise the respect for all police cannot move forward.

The Police man who shot Anthony Grainger in COLD BLOOD should have been in PRISON FROM THE MOMENT HE SHOT HIM!!!!Not the Police trting to find a GET OUT CLAUSE!!!! If a savillian person had done this, then he/she would have been handcuffed, arrested and be behind bars until the trial!!!!! N.J.N.P

SALFORD CITY MAYOR MISLEADING STATEMENTS ON DEVELOPER CASH

Star date: 19th April 2018

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.

ASSISTANT DIRECTORS TO GET HUGE PAY RISES

Cash-strapped Salford City Council is to give huge pay rises to senior officers after a 'job evaluation exercise' moved them well up the pay scale. It follows the resignation of the Director of Finance and Corporate Business, and spreading the majority of his salary amongst other re-titled roles.

The Salford Star believes the officers are in line to share around £54,000 between them.
