She Must Be So Proud…

Posted in The Job - General by 200

According to Inspector Gadget’s Blog, Britain’s first black high court judge has reduced the sentence of two low-life oxygen-thieving pieces of shit known as Jack Turner & Lance Samuels. She must be proud of a good day’s work, then.

Pond-life Jack Turner Scum Lance Samuels

According to the Met’s website these two pieces of scum attacked off-duty PC Daniel Coffill as he left a nightclub with three female friends in Bromley town centre in July 2005. Looking for a light for a spliff they approached the group of friends as they got to their car. Turner asked for a light, the PC declined and got into the car whereupon the two scumbags became abusive and Samuels spat on the car. The officer got out of the car to remonstrate and was punched in the head so severely he collapsed onto the ground sustaining a severe head injury. The males then assaulted him by kicking him in the head as he lay in the road.

Nearly two years later PC Coffill remains in a coma in a persistent vegetative state requiring 24-hour care. His parents, Margaret Gardhouse and Len Coffill, said they were "totally devastated by this inane act of violence".

In a statement, they said: "Daniel’s sisters, brother, girl-friend, family, friends and colleagues have all lost a very compassionate and loving member of our family.

"We are all very proud of Daniel who, although very young, has achieved so much and touched the hearts of so many people.

"At this time Daniel remains in a vegetative state but we pray daily for a miracle that may some day return him to us."

In June 2006, the attackers were jailed for the princely sum of 8 & 9 years for GBH with intent. (about 4 or 5 years in real terms).

Inspector Gadget reports that their sentence has been reduced on appeal. Unfortunately, I can’t find out why or by how much but am reporting what Insp Gadget says as a result of a request to further publicise this travesty of justice. It quite simply beggars believe that two things of the quality of Turner & Samuels can kick someone literally senseless leaving them in a coma, get a pitiful 4 years in prison and have this further reduced.

Innocent Victim & Good Guy PC Daniel Coffill


How long must we put up with risible sentences for some of the most vicious & brutal attacks which have absolutely devastating effects on the victims & their families?

    Unbeliveble!….what must happen before this sort of scum is punished. AS a DCO at a well known Immigration Removal Centre I am somewhat not surprised that this sort of thing happens. You would not belive the sort of filth that gets released for one political reason or another. Does the victim go up in front of the appeal judge to plead his case ? NO just the poor young lads who undoutably are so sorry for what happens but, surley it is down to the fact they come from a broken home/single parent/lack of role model/bad estate/poor enviroment etc and it is not their fault. Allyou need and they know this is the right judge at the right time and BINGO….WANKERS. Prayers go to PC Coffill & family. God Bless.

    I have in fact known Dan since I was 5 years old. He was and still is one of a group of 5 of us who have remained close friends since we were in Primary school together. This story makes me so angry, knowing that our justice system has reduced already pathetic jail terms to almost nothing, especially as the victim in this case is a police officer who was trying to control the scum that the courts cant seen to do anything about. This country is becoming a joke. What they have done is say that a life is worth nothing and make out that taking someones life is no more serious than robbing a house or driving too fast.We all hope and still believe that one day Dan will recover some, if any, of the life he once had.

    Mrs. Margaret Gardhouse, please e-mail me a contact number where I can relay to you a similar experience, and the treatment which has shown very good results. I hope you do. I live in Spain, but we can easily communicate by e-mail.

    I like the term .. (about 4 or 5 years in real terms).
    Shows everyone what a sick joke this jail sentence was even before the Appeal Judge reduced it.
    But then … owing to this Governments mis-management – there aren’t the prison spaces to accomodate turds like these.
    In this age of a “global economy” etc and with numerous decent peopel being made unemployed because jobs have been “offshored”…
    why don’t we find an African country we give aid to and get them to set up a prison camp in one of their deserts for all our waifs and strays.
    They get an industry, an econony and the respect of earning their wages rather than relying on handouts ( ironically what all our scum never learn) – we get a cheap place to house our idiots whilst they serve a real term of imprisonment. Like Woomera Detention Centre in South Australia – any break-out means 15 days walking in the blistering heat to the nearest town !!

    PS – before the Human Rights lobby get on my case – this “offshore prison” idea is only what we did 200years ago with Australia – ( admittedly on reflection we should have left the criminals int he UK and sent the decent people to Australia!!) – and what the US of A does now with Guantanamo Bay and ….allegedly …with their alledgedly secret alledgedly detention camps for alledged terrorists in alledgedly Poland, alledgedly Egypt and alledgedly Morocco..alledgedly.

    Dear Linda,

    Margaret does not have access to this site, but will be visiting Dan and Margaret this week. If you leave me your contact address I will be sure to pass it on I know she would be happy to hear of any advice there may be.

    Sad and sick as this case is, and obscene as the sentence reduction is, there are lessons to be learned.

    The lessons are threefold:

    (a)try not to get drunk; but
    (b)if you do get drunk, keep a low profile; and
    (b)when you are drunk, don’t tell ‘em you are a policeman.

    The worst thing about this case is that the two b*stards still got more than they would have done for having done the same to JoePublic.

    May they rot in prison, Hell is too good for them!

    Well done to the two heroes that rid the people of this Nazi pig scum.

    Well done lads on get time reduced. The never should have got convicted in the first place. They should get a medal.
    Love too bye em a beer when they get out.

    Any scum that puts on a Nazi pig uniform becomes a enemy of the pepole and should and will get what they have coming.

    Its more fitting that the scum pig ain’t dead, that would have been too easy for the scum.

    Much better that he spend the rest of his live a dribberling cabbage.

    A fitting end for a Nazi pig.

    Death Too all pigs.

    Oh dear, a reasoned rational debate about the inadequecies of the criminal justice system reduced to this.
    Copkiller – bet you spent ages thinking that name up – I really doubt you are quite as anti police as you seem to think you are. You evidently have the ability to string sentances together, even if they are total bollocks, which marked you aside from the idiots who normally hold those views. Don’t forget, our gang is bigger than your gang and if you want to make something of it, please do, we’ll be happy to have a stand up fight with you to prove how nice we all are nowadays.
    What happened to Dan is totally appalling. It should never happen to anyone, regardless of profession, race, sexuality, gender (no i’m not a liberal). What really smarts though is the dimwit judge who reduced the sentance. I can virtually guarantee that we’ll be seeing a lot more of those to WOO’s (wastes of organs) in a coupld of years when they get out of Feltham or whichever holiday camp they’ve gone to to get three meals a day.
    Finally to Dan, his relatives, friends and colleagues – thoughts and prayers with you always.

    Im not sure why we are even replying to the lovely kind words left by some dragged up little dirty chav , clearly educated to the standard of the cu*ts that did this to Daniel. Should Daniel have been with three male friends i wonder if they would they have been so forward in showing the world what they have been taught by their violent drug smoking hippy “upbringing”. Daniel has achieved far more possible than the two dole dossing ugly dirty basta**s ever will and most probably accounts for their scummy “friends and family”. What goes around comes around , and if this is true then these two will rot in hell with a slow nasty death – exactly what they deserve – I have high hopes of being there to witness that just like i have high hopes about listening to Daniels kind funny words again. Love ya Dan xxx

    Summarising his presentation Dr.Clauss said:

    ‘It has now been ten years since the awakening of the first patient from his state of impaired consciousness after swallowing 10mg zolpidem. In the past decade, zolpidem has been effective in a multitude of patients with brain damage ranging from birth injury to traumatic brain injury to stroke and others. SPECT and PET scanning studies in these patients show reactivation of brain metabolism in quiescent brain regions after injury, designated functional neurodormancy. Recently MEG studies have shown that these suppressed neurodormant brain areas have a characteristic slow wave magnetic rhythm that normalises after zolpidem, but not after placebo or other sleeping drugs such as zopiclone.

    Neurodormancy arises as a physiological thread that is present in a multitude of unrelated brain pathologies, most likely a basic physiological protection mechanism that is initiated after brain damage. It forms a target for zolpidem which re- activates neurodormant tissue and normalises clinical features that occur because of the suppressed neurodormant brain’.

    Concluding, Dr Clauss described the preliminary results of a study that is being conducted at the University of Pretoria, South Africa and scheduled to be presented in full at the Asia Oceania Congress of Nuclear Medicine and Biology, Delhi, India, Nov, 2008.


    Rob, if you wish to contact Prof Clauss let me know…

    Best wishes Linda…it is still not too late to try this drug.

    Pill ‘reverses’ vegetative state

    The drug works on nerve cells in the brain
    A sleeping pill can temporarily revive people in a permanent vegetative state to the point where they can have conversations, a study finds.
    Zolpidem is usually used to treat insomnia.

    South African researchers, writing in the NeuroRehabilitation, looked at the effects on three patients of using the drug for up to six years.

    But one expert in neurological rehabilitation said it was possible the patients had a different condition.

    This drug could be unmasking a condition from which people are able to wake up temporarily

    Professor Mike Barnes, Hunters Moor Rehabilitation Centre

    A person in a vegetative state will appear to be awake and may have their eyes open, but will show no awareness of their surroundings.

    They will not be able to interact with other people, and will show no responses to sounds or things that happen around them.

    But they will show signs of movement, and cycles of sleep and may be able to breathe on their own.


    Each of the three patients studied was given the drug every morning.

    An improvement was seen within 20 minutes of taking the drug and wore off after four hours, when the patients restored to their permanent vegetative state.
