At times it can be hard to tell whether certain Hoaxtead mobsters are mad, bad, or just plain dim.
Take Kristie Sue Costa (please!).
While we’ve talked over the past few days about what motivates members of the Hoaxtead “pseudo-cult” to lash out against any dissenting opinions, Kristie Sue really goes above and beyond. Not only has she taken it upon herself to shill for Abraham Christie’s demented “cannabis cures cannibalism” fantasy, but as some former True Believers have begun to raise questions about Hoaxtead, she’s been running around like a one-armed paperhanger with hives, doing her very best to slag and discredit the unbelievers faster than they can post their objections.
Wherever an ex-Believer dares to raise his or her voice against the Hampstead SRA hoax, you’ll find Kristie Sue rushing in:
Here she is, claiming that there is “still a re-investigation currently open….Apparently the IPCC…agrees with Ella about retractions”. A bit further down the same page, she make the same claim, just in case anyone missed it the first time: It’s very hard to tell from reading this whether she’s deliberately attempting to mislead about the IPCC’s role, or whether she’s just literally too dumb to understand how it all works.
On the off chance that it’s the latter, we decided to try to explain to Ms Costa one last time how the IPCC actually works.
The IPCC is a body that is empowered to follow up on requests by persons involved in any given police investigation (as victim, as suspect, etc.). Once the IPCC agrees to look into a case, they will send the person’s list of queries to an investigating officer (IO) who will take charge of the investigation, and will take statements from police staff involved, “under caution”. This means that the police are making their statements knowing that they may be used in a court of law at some point. This ensures that those performing the internal investigation understand the gravity of the situation, and helps to maintain public confidence that the investigation will be thorough and truthful.
Once the IO has ensured that all the IPCC’s questions have been answered to the best of his or her officers’ ability, he or she will send the resulting report back to the IPCC. They will make recommendations as to follow-up. This could be things like “review Procedure X with Officer Y to ensure this mistake is not made again”. It might even be “Officer A should be suspended for a period of time”, if the error is particularly egregious.
HOWEVER: the IPCC will not, cannot, has never been able to “re-investigate” a case which the police have already closed.
In other words, they do not pull out all the evidence again and run a new police investigation. The IPCC has one job, and that is to look at how the original police investigation was conducted, then either agree with the way the investigation was run, or recommend disciplinary or educational action as required.
The IPCC states this very clearly in their terms of reference, which we are quite sure that neither Kristie Sue nor any of her fellow Hoaxtead mobsters has bothered to read.
In Abe and Ella’s case, the IPCC agreed, on appeal in October 2015, to open an investigation of how the original 2014 police investigation had been conducted. The results came back in March or April 2016, and they were not to Abe and Ella’s liking, so they appealed, which is their legal right.
This is the “re-investigation” Kristie Sue keeps prattling on about. It’s a “re-investigation” of certain points in the previous IPCC investigation which did not come out the way Abe and Ella had hoped they would. On their second appeal, they found an IPCC officer who was willing to agree that certain aspects of the previous IPCC investigation had not been satisfactorily answered, and so the questions have been asked again, in hopes that the police will provide an explanation that will satisfy the IPCC. That’s it, that’s all.
At no point has there been any suggestion, except from Abe and Ella (who are perfectly well aware of the actual mandate of the IPCC, since they have done all their submissions via their solicitor Mr Aseem Taj), that a re-investigation of the original 2014 case will never take place.
Indeed, they would be utterly idiotic to want an actual police re-investigation, because as Mrs Justice Pauffley suggested in her 19 March 2015 judgement, had the investigation gone a bit further, Abe and Ella would be behind bars by now on charges of child abuse.
Why do Abe and Ella keep pursuing the IPCC then?
It’s pretty clear that the only reason they keep pushing the IPCC is because they want someone in an official capacity to say, “You were right, the police investigation was flawed beyond repair”. Why do they want this? One reason, and one reason only: it will put them in a more favourable position to continue pushing their hoax.
Oddly, while troofers all scream blue murder about any and all official organisations’ activities, they still seem to crave the validation of, for instance, an IPCC report that says, “You were right, the police were wrong”. The problem is, the IPCC has not said this (despite what Kristie Sue claims to believe).
What the IPCC investigator says is, “I am not clear why Mr Dearman was not arrested prior to his interview on 15 September 2014 bearing in mind the allegations were made on the 5 September 2014”. This is not a condemnation of the failure to arrest RD; it’s simply a statement that in the first IPCC investigation, the police failed to adequately explain why the arrest had not been made. Given what we’ve explained above about the IPCC’s mandate, this makes perfect sense. Just as a maths teacher will insist that students “show their work” and describe how they arrived at a particular answer, the IPCC is empowered to demand that the police explain their rationale.
If Kristie Sue doesn’t understand this, she should.
Is she really that dim?
As we say, it’s difficult to tell whether Kristie Sue keeps spreading false information about the implications of the IPCC investigation as a way of creating a great deal of smoke and trying to protect the beliefs of the Hoaxtead pseudo-cult…or whether she’s actually unable to grasp the difference between an IPCC investigation and a police investigation. Heaven knows we’ve attempted to explain it to her before.
Ultimately, what counts is not whether she’s spreading lies out of stupidity, or out of blind loyalty to her pseudo-cult. The most important thing is to quash the hoax altogether, and that will only happen when good people speak up against falsehoods.
A note to our readers: El Coyote has finally been persuaded to take a bit of a summer holiday. We’ve packed his bags for him, and as of Saturday, 22 July, we’ll be shoving him out the door. No doubt he’ll keep poking his nose back in and checking for new developments on the Hoaxtead front, but we’re encouraging him to claim a deck chair, apply sunscreen liberally, and take it easy for a week or so. He’s been growling and howling about it, but we think he’s finally starting to accept our advice. In turn, we’ve agreed to let him at the computer in the event that anything startling should occur.
