Why French Police are Lying C*** S***ers

Dunno if I really want to post this, but starting
to get soooo mad, I will:

I got to the entrance of my apartment after a few JDs last
night around 2am.

I short, fat, ugly woman cop comes legging it up behind me
asking for my papers. "They're in my apartment." (Stupid move
Nev always carry your papers!)
She then instructs me to go back onto the main road.
Once behind me, she cuffs me. There are now about 10
cops at the roadside by this time.

"I've got him, it's him!" She starts saying.


Into the car, off to the cop shop, strip searched and
checked in for a night at Chez Facists Scumbags.

Start bricking it, even though I'm fairly
sure I can'tve contravened any laws.

It's a real ****hole in French holding cells let me tell you!

At 11am this morning after a very rough night
on a half a wooden bench, they
final tell me they had a report of someone in
one of the gardens and the woman copper who nicked me
swears she saw me jumping over a garden fence. (Lie.)


So I'm finally told the whole story and get to give a statement.
(I was walking home and you just arrested me.)

Interviewing cop is fairly straight up, and tell me
it's not going to go any further as the only thing they could
get me for (on the word of this lying cop, my words) is
stealing, and I obviously didn't knick anything.

So the paperwork is done, the prosecutor tell him to just close
the case and let me walk.

They could've keep me all weekend and no one would've know....



I'm relieved, but starting to fume now and had to
get it off my chest.

Re: Why French Police are Lying C*** S***ers

Hi,

Don't want to wind you up any more but does that mean for example you are now not allowed to go to the USA as you've been arrested?!

Shysters.

You may be f**king right.

(Well for Visa waiver, anyway...)


Phew "Trespass" Wouldn't count as a crime
of moral turpitude.

Re: Why French Police are Lying C*** S***ers

Nev, I feel for you. There's lots of injustice in the world - you be arrested for being English in France - Alonso having the gall to hold up Hamilton, etc. Can't you sue them for wrongful arrest?

Re: Why French Police are Lying C*** S***ers

5h1t Nev, if they charged you does that mean it goes on you record? I think it would here. It might be an idea to get some legal advice.

Hope everything gets sorted.

Re: Why French Police are Lying C*** S***ers

At least you didn't wake up in the Chateau D'if wearing an Iron Mask

My Mate Steve upset the French police by "borrowing" the guards hat on a train and asking for tickets. They just kicked him up the as* and told him to go away...we were 13 at the time on a school skiiing trip to Austria....and three days later my hero Donald Campbell was killed on Coniston. You never forget stuff like that

Re: Why French Police are Lying C*** S***ers

Nev, that's a pretty harrowing tale. Credit to you for taking it as well as you have.

Racism against the English apparently doesn't count as racism in any country.

No evidence, nothing other than being a Brit in the wrong place? So, right, you've had a drink and you're British so you must be guilty of something! Makes my blood boil.

Re: Why French Police are Lying C*** S***ers

Bloody hell Nev

Were you charged then & what for

Seems like they thought they had the right man and then realised they didn't.

Surley they will right the wrong when they realise where you live & what you drive etc. I've met you and you're a smartly turned out fella.

Perhaps go back in on Monday (sober) and with a solicitor or similar and ask for all record of the evening error to be scrubbed?? Sue the feckers for wrongfull arrest even??

Not good though.......

Re: Why French Police are Lying C*** S***ers

Hi Nev,

I'm really sorry to hear this, I never thought the neighborhoods of Antibes could yield that sort of "situation", really.

I take it you're a citizen of the UK, so the first step would be to call the UK consulate in Nice for advice.

The parallel step would be to contact other UK citizens where you live and ask for their recommendation for a lawyer, just in case.

You really want to get to the bottom of what might be the consequences of that police error as soon as possible.

But I think any consulate in any country is familiar with the type of interaction with local police that needs to happen now...

Hold on and don't worry too much; this was a down and there will be ups to compensate.

Appalling Nev! Yes, contact the British Consulate to make sure there aren't any lasting consequences for you!
How bloody stupid was she not to let you enter your own apartment to a) show her you live there and b) get your documentation?

Re: Why French Police are Lying C*** S***ers

Spoke to a lawyer. ****-all I can
do about it.


If a cop says something, and there are no witnesses,
then that's what happened. End of story.


Learned quite a few bits 'n' pieces during
the discussion. (Like "Liberté, égalité, fraternité"
is a load of old sh1te, really.)


Ho hum.

Whereas, of course, the British Police would never victimise anyone. Not The French, not Poles, not "hoodies", not travellers, not Gypsies, not...

Crap tail Nev - it sucks and there's NOTHING you can do about it.

Re: Why French Police are Lying C*** S***ers

Nev,

I've just read your story. Like others here, I don't really feel I have anything useful to contribute, but I do want to say that you seemed to have handled the entire incident with class and composure. Mind you that doesn't surprise me. It's exactly the reaction I'd expect from you. I do hope you don't have to suffer any repercussions (travel restrictions, etc.) from this. You certainly don't deserve any.

Hi Nev,

Get a second opinion, just in case. Certain "expert" "professionals" will often tell you something is not possible when they estimate the task will take too much effort for their liking...

Was that a lawyer recommended to you by the consulate?

Oh, and you can still send a letter of complaint to the Prefet de Nice (technically the chief of the police forces, I believe), the mayor of your city, etc...

I'd recommend you do that so that you can document your good faith in case of ulterior developments, just in case.

Hang in there dude!

Re: Why French Police are Lying C*** S***ers

Thanks SR, TS, PS et al.

Everyone was having a good ol' laugh about it
last night.

Was discussed by a group of lawyers over dinner
with friend-of-friend. They were suggesting to start
writing snotty registered letters to all concerned.

Although I'll draught one in French & English over the weekend,
I'm still waiting for an acquaintance to get back from holiday and
have a word with their local police contact before going down that
route.

Re: Why French Police are Lying C*** S***ers

Sorry Nev, missed this when you originally posted it - bad news

Isn't it in France that you're persumed guilty, as opposed to here where you're persumed innocent???

Glad nothing happened from it
