Well! Wasn’t that fun?
Yesterday was a virtual roller-coaster for Hampstead SRA hoax watchers, what with the morning announcement that Angela Power-Disney had had four Gardaí come to her door, seize her and her sons’ tech and her phone (and, inexplicably, two cars?), and then invite her to Kells Barracks for a wee chat about harassment charges.
Angela, never one to turn down an opportunity to self-publicise, managed to squeeze in a live-streamed Facebook video before her ride arrived to take her to her interview.
In the video, she managed to fit in several jabs at RD, along with threats to whistle-blow about police corruption at the local level, and a few other juicy morsels.
Just in case, the ever-vigilant Office Tapir saved a copy of the video, which has already been sent to the officer in charge of Angela’s case. And of course, we took copious notes.
Just to let you know that four Gards, I think three detectives and a ban Garda, I’ll give you their names…DS Mark Looby, Sgt Alan Brown, somebody Davill, Garda Goldrick, and Detective Garda Flynn. One two three four five…
I was raided this morning about 10 am—not raided, they were very courteous. They took my mobile phone, I didn’t want to allow them access, I was trying to film them from inside the house. They were let in by my son and they assertively took my phone from me and denied the legal right to record in my own home. They were very specific, they just confiscated my phone, my PC, which my…whatever…a laptop. I use a PC, a laptop, and my phone. They also took my disabled son’s laptop, ancient laptop that he uses to go to college with. And they took his iPad.
They assured me that I was not going to be arrested, and that somebody would collect me at 12:30 for an interview at Kells Barracks. It’s now 1:15 and nobody has turned up to collect me, and they’re already looking at my phone, because I’m shown as active on Facebook.
This last statement is curious. We know of no way to tell when one is “shown as active on Facebook”. Can any tech boffins out there tell us how that might be accomplished?
So I’m not going to be arrested according to them. It was a very specified raid. You know, they didn’t trash the place, they just took my tech and my disabled son’s tech….I spoke to them at length.
Two of them I’m familiar with, which I suspect are good Gards. I’ll give you their names: Detective Mark Looby, I suspect him to be a good guy, and the ban Garda. I can’t remember her name, let’s see if I can remember it if I look at it…Goldrick, possibly is the good….
Well, imagine our relief. At least two of the local Gards are “good”.
Anyway, one of the Gards looked quite alarmed, as I started whistleblowing on the local situation. Which I will do at the highest level. And I have done in the past.
This sounds like a reference to Angela’s slagging of a genuine Garda whistle-blower, Sgt Maurice McCabe. Long-time readers will recall that we took Angela to task over this some time ago.
As I say, the ban Garda and the detective sergeant seemed to be genuine, although they were very…the detective sergeant was aggressive in taking my phone from me.
There is a warrant to search my house apparently, I haven’t read it, but there was not a warrant to break my door down if I didn’t consent to access.
The detective sergeant said, ‘Yes, we had a warrant to use reasonable force’, but the ban Garda said, “We would have gone and got a warrant”.
Keep this in mind: the police actually did have a warrant to search Angela’s house using “reasonable force”; if she had resisted, they would have gone and got a warrant to break the door down. There will be a quiz on this later.
So, you know, in an ideal world I would have spoken to them out the window.
Yes, and in an ideal world people wouldn’t run about making unsubstantiated and untrue public statements about people who have been declared innocent in a High Court. But hey, you can’t have everything.
I have faith in the Irish Gardaí, that there are enough of them that are not corrupt that I was looking forward to going and whistle-blowing when they were due to collect me at 12:30 to go to Kells Barracks and make a statement, with an assurance that I was not about to be arrested.
Drinking game anyone? How about a drink for every time Angela states that she’s not going to be arrested?
I was informed that I was being raided on foot of a complaint by Ricky Dearman, of harassment. I was the last person standing regarding the Hampstead case, and it’s always Ricky Dearman that puts in the complaints. And he’s allowed to give remote video evidence for instance from America when he was there on a free holiday courtesy of eBay.
We confess we nearly fell over listening to this. It really does not strike us as wise to slag a person in a public Facebook video, when it seems that they may be responsible for pressing charges against you. Just a thought.
But Sabine McNeill was not allowed to give evidence by video when she was out of the country for her own safety. Sabine McNeill, 74-year-old disabled activist, is on remand in HMP Bronzefield…
Um, give me some thumbs up, guys, give me some feedback, just to let me know I’m live.
So my phone is gone, my PC is gone, my laptop’s gone, my disabled son’s laptop which he uses for college is gone, my disabled son’s iPad which I have no idea how to use is gone, as I say I think two of the four gards, maybe three, were decent and I was due to be collected to make a voluntary statement at 12:30 and it’s now 1:20.
Drinking game #2: one drink for every time she mentions how late they are to pick her up for her questioning.
So we’ve tried to make contact with Kells Gardaí, I think the decent ones amongst the four were mind-blown when I started whistle-blowing, including locally. At least one looked very uncomfortable with the information I was disseminating, and I suspect at this stage the last thing they want me to do is start speaking on video with audio, y’know, what I know. What I know locally, and what I know about Hampstead.
Yes, we daresay the police were a bit taken aback when the person whose tech equipment they have just seized starts wittering on about the very case for which she is being investigated, and throws in a few zingers about one of their former colleagues while she’s at it.
So it was the classic ‘you can’t just go calling paedophiles with no evidence’. They asked me if I had any evidence on Ricky Dearman, and regarding the Hampstead case, I said three-plus years’ worth of evidence and please feel free to find it on my PC that you’re confiscating.
Oh gosh, the old “you can’t make allegations of criminal behaviour with no evidence” thing. How very old-fashioned and quaint.
They confiscated our car, they confiscated another family member’s car…um, you know, I want to disclose to them in the barracks, at Kells, the extent of the targeting that’s gone on.
This one has us stumped: why would they have confiscated her car, for an investigation involving harassment? Is there some other outstanding charge which we don’t know about? Very odd.
….So I’m praying that Ireland which was purportedly neutral and independent, I’m praying that there are more good Gards than bad, and that they will find the courage to stand up to the corruption even if it goes as high as Gardaí commissioners and government, which it does.
Pro tip, Angie: When being investigated by the police, don’t go publicly accusing them of corruption at high levels. Just a thought.
I’ve put out a call to Ben Gilroy, I’m in touch with him, he’s fantastic, he knows his stuff. I’m not afraid, I’m actually really pleased that I made the video I made last night with Heather Brown.
Oh, fabulous. Is she hoping that Ben Gilroy, noted Freeman on the Land nutter who has been convicted of contempt of court for calling a judge a member of a Satanic cult, will assist her in an potential legal case she might have? Does she also put out fires by dousing them in petrol?
I would urge people to go to my YouTube channel, Angela Power-Disney, or my back-up channel, Angie Power-Disney, or my blog, AngelasCaches.org. And just check out the evidence. I don’t bandy around the word ‘paedophile’ without at least two witnesses coming forward, even if that includes me.
I don’t make serious allegations unless I have a plethora of evidence.
AHAHAHAHAHAHA….oh God, we think we might have choked on something there. Do carry on, Angela.
They asked me, did any serious evidence exist against Ricky Dearman, and I told them three and a half years’ worth. And I’d be happy to navigate them towards that evidence.
Yes, we’re sure she’d be happy to “navigate them” toward her “evidence”, which consists of her repeating other people’s lies, with a few of her own thrown in. Sadly, it looks as though the police are going to find that for themselves, though, because…
Apparently all my tech is going to be sent to Garda Headquarters, in Phoenix Park, The Garda detective sergeant assured me he’d try and get it back to me as soon as possible, but I would suggest we’re looking at at least six weeks. I’ll do my best to stay, you know, public.
Yes, that’s the important thing. Staying public.
I’m not into the drama. I actually have a love for Ireland, and I have a confidence that….I was very proud of somebody that said to them, ‘Shame on you for cooperating with the Brits’. You know, we were raised to identify as Irish republicans.
And it horrifies me that for instance, Enda Kenny cooperated with the British prime minister to keep an investigator into the Tuam babies scandal, when there were 800 remains of babies in Tuam found, somebody came from America and somebody else tried to come from Canada to investigate. And they were blocked from coming in by Immigration, and in cooperation with England they tried to extradite those people to the UK so they could be banged up.
Oh right, that time when Canadian scam artist and fraudulent SRA finder Kevin Annett tried to impose his ludicrous theories upon the Irish, and was quite sensibly kept out of the country.
You know, I’m a bit shaken. I was in my dressing gown, and as I say, you know, the detective sergeant literally—I wish I’d live-streamed. I didn’t think to live-stream. You know I’d just started recording. I wish I’d live-streamed, but he pretty much wrestled the phone from me. And as I say, of the four or five mostly detectives that turned up at my house, I think it’s no coincidence that they turned up after the broadcast I did on YouTube last night with Heather Brown.
It all of a sudden happened after that. If you look at the last two videos on my YouTube channel with Heather Brown, there’s a lot of serious intel dropped.
Or, as we like to say, a lot of harassment and death threats thrown out. Potay-to, potah-to.
The best thing you can do is share this, and I’m not alarmed. I’m trying not to get into the drama, because you know I’m straining at the bit to go and make a statement in Kells. And the intel I dropped just in my home—they stayed for about 45 minutes. Other than wrestling my phone off from me, they were very gracious.
I know two of them from trying to report my sister’s suspicious death. I know one of them from the inquest, I know one of them from trying to report my sister’s…what I believe was a murder. And so those two at least were gracious.
Right, and we’re sure they know exactly how credible Angela is. So that’s good then.
I may be wrong, the other two may be decent as well. The detective sergeant suggested that he wouldn’t look me in the eye because he was terrified [laughs].
I said, “Are you going to arrest me?” and they said “No, no, of course not, we just have a warrant to come in and search”, and they very specifically went and got the PC, laptop, my boy’s laptop, my other boy’s laptop, my boy’s iPad, and my phone.
They were very very gracious, very courteous, they assured me I was not going to be arrested, and they assured me—they offered me the option, it’s like ‘we’ve got a complaint from Ricky Dearman of harassment, coincidentally after the two broadcasts I did regarding intel from Heather Brown in London, and then they said, ‘If you want to come in and make a statement and put your side of things, we’ll be happy to facilitate that’.
More puzzlement at this end. Why would a complaint from RD be acted upon the day after she published two videos in which his name was never mentioned?
Also, does she really think that police sit around all night watching videos and then scramble teams of relatively senior officers to rush out to make arrests? What an interesting inner life Angie must have.
So I’m just…I’m sure they’ll see this.
So she actually made this self-incriminatory video in the belief that the police would see it? Mind: boggled.
Ben Gilroy is somebody I trust in Ireland in terms of the law, but I’m not afraid, I’m not afraid of being arrested, which I’m not, of being invited in to make a statement, which I want to, but the intel I dropped on them, just in the 45 minutes they were here, two of them knew what I was talking about, and said, “Oh, yes, such-and-such, oh, yeah, she’s talking about such-and-such”.
They knew exactly what I was referring to. The other two looked like deer in headlights.
So…more questions. Does Angie believe that when people make complaints of harassment, they just kind of drop in, say, “Person X is harassing me” and then bugger off again without explaining the context or anything?
Of course the police knew what she was talking about: they would have had to build the case to the point of obtaining a search and seizure warrant, which aren’t just issued for shits and giggles.
So I’ve never been embarrassed to say before that I have some high-level contacts in the Gards. I’m not a Garda informant, but my family happened to marry into a Garda commissioner, and I happen to have a son in daycare with somebody who’s now a deputy superintendent of three counties, and I happen to go to church with a detective based in Dublin, and I happen to have a lot of contacts, and so you know, I just pray that what I believe, particularly in Ireland, is that they have more loyalty to the truth and protecting children than they do to cooperating with the UK.
ProTip #2: when faced with four or five police who’ve come to investigate your role in a case of serious harassment, don’t try to play the “I know a great many senior police officers” card. Generally, that sort of thing is not well-received.
p.s. It occurs to us: do you know what it’s called when a person is arrested but uses his or her connections to try and weasel out of it?
Can you say “corruption”, boys and girls?
Sure you can.
….It’s interesting I prayed over our tech, well there it goes off to Phoenix Park for investigation. … And I just would appeal to those I know that watch my work, which is high-level Gardaí including the bent ones, including the Freemasons, including the Knights of Malta, including the Columbus, including all the organisations that have been corrupt, I just say it’s a turning point, and it’s a time for the goats to be separated from the sheep, like it’s time…if you’re a decent Gard, if you’re a decent barrister, if you’re a decent judge, if you’re a decent counsellor, if you’re a decent solicitor, whatever, it’s time to step up and do the right thing.
Pro Tip #3: see Pro Tip #1. Repeat as necessary.
Ricky Dearman has finally managed to land a harassment charge allegation against me and I welcome the opportunity to re-present three, almost four years testimony in evidence…erm you know that case needs re-investigating, that case needs re opening.
No, it really doesn’t.
[A commenter posts: ‘Ricky Dearman is a criminal’.] Angie says: ‘I agree.’
But she’s not harassing him. No, no.
Get this to anybody you know who knows we’re telling the truth and I’ve got a feeling that the intel I dropped both locally and on the Hampstead case and further afield I think the last thing they want is to bring me in to make a statement. The last thing they want because if I go in and make a statement and request audio and video and have a legal person with me then it’s like entering into court records.
It’s like saying, you know, discovery, so if I go into the barracks and say, ‘Right, I’d like to disclose about A, B, C, D, E, F, G”…if it’s the kind of information that can bring down governments, which it is, then the last thing they want is it entered into records.
Yes, and if she is found to have been lying during her police interview, she will find herself in a world of hot water. Also: “bring down governments”? Seriously?
I don’t think Ricky Dearman’s got a leg to stand on but look at Sabine McNeill, prosecuted by Ricky Dearman for Harassment you know, including being allowed to Skype from America because he was on a free holiday from eBay. Sabine’s on remand, more than six months at HMP Bronzefield. Look at Jake Clarke, sectioned extensively.
Look at Rupert Quaintance prosecuted by complaints from Ricky Dearman and others from the alleged Hamsptead Cult. Their case was thrown out. It was completely collapsed but the judge still saw fit to impose a restraining order on Sabine McNeill and Ved Chaudhari/Neelu Berry and then jail them for breaching the restraining order which is you’re gagged, you can never go on the internet again, you can never mention the Hampstead case again, you can never say these names again, you can’t even Skype anybody, you can’t go to a meeting by the Church of England to which you’re invited to talk about child abuse and institutional child abuse.
You can’t do any of that or we’ll bang you up and they bang them up, including a 74 year old disabled woman. So Ricky Dearman you know, seems to be protected in very high places and seems to be able to remotely conduct his business including his business of silencing whistle-blowers and campaigners and survivors.
Nope, no harassment going on here, none at all.
To claim that one person was responsible for the legal troubles of Sabine McNeill, Neelu Berry, and Rupert Quaintance is either unbelievably disingenuous or unbelievably stupid. As for Jake, did his hospitalisation really have anything to do with the Hampstead hoax?
And then she made another video…
…But don’t worry, it was much shorter. We promise.
In Round 2, a visibly shaken and exhausted-looking Angela reassured her followers that she had not been arrested…yet:
I made a voluntary three hour statement responding to an allegation by the person I mentioned in the last live-stream. An allegation made about 6 weeks ago of harassment, which is that old chestnut. I presume in response to my slime blog on my website in which I didn’t identify anybody….
And who knows how long it will take to go to CPS and be considered whether it’s worth prosecuting or not. I don’t know, three months? I don’t know how long it takes in Ireland.
“Harassment, which is that old chestnut”. Yes, it’s an “old chestnut” when she’s accused of doing it to others. Not so much when she believes it’s happened to her. Funny, that.
Oh, and they don’t have a “Crown Prosecution Service” (CPS) in Ireland. Prosecutions there are handled by the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions. That info might come in handy for Angela in future.
Incidentally, note that in contrast to Video #1, Angela is no longer mentioning a Certain Name. Has she received a caution, formal or otherwise?
But um yeah, that was it, a certain person flew to Dublin and made an allegation of harassment. So I’ve answered that very in-depth, and with evidence, and treated very decently, and um, we shall see what we shall see.
She was expecting maybe the rubber hose and bright spotlight?
I had been getting warnings in comments, random comments…the other thing I wanted to say is that I made reports of malicious communications going back almost two years, as far back as the poison pen letters campaign against me, which I have PULSE numbers on, so there’ll be lights shone on places unexpected.
So I made two police reports in the last two years of credible threats and cyber terrorism and the poison pen letter campaign, so that’s all part of my defence. And um…I wasn’t charged or anything, I wasn’t arrested, I wasn’t charged, so things work differently in Ireland. Thank God.
And yet, no action was ever taken on those complaints. Funny thing, that.
But yes, I have been getting little snidy comments like “ooh, eight days till you get arrested, ooh, three days till you get arrested” but they’re so common, I just ignore the, it’s like yeah, yeah, yeah, I’m not going to live in trembling fear, you’ve been saying I’m getting arrested for three years, you know? So I just learned not to take those things seriously.
That’s very strange, and we have to think that any “snidy comments” she might have received were random chance, as yesterday’s equipment seizure and interview came as a complete (but very welcome) surprise to us.
But this time I didn’t get arrested, but I had four detectives at the bloody door! Pretty insistent about their right to confiscate my tech, and I don’t think they had a warrant for entry, but I’m not going to split hairs because they really listened and they really were decent.
So remember we asked you to keep something in mind, something about warrants? Do you remember what it was? Amazing that it only took Angela a few hours to “forget” that she’d already stated that the Gards really did have a warrant for entry, search, and seizure.
So I’m a bit tired, I haven’t had breakfast yet, and I’m , like I said, somebody’s getting a phone to me, and like I said, life goes on and it could take three months to see if CPS even considers it. But you know, we’ll see.
We never know what people in what high places pull strings, and I know several of my colleagues have come off very badly in the face of harassment allegations from the same person. So let’s see if Ireland can come up trumps with some justice.
Justice. Yes, we like the sound of that.
