North Yorkshire Police have come under fire after they charged and summoned a Police Constable to court for just doing his job.
He stood accused of dangerous driving after he became invloved in a vehicle pursuit.  

The officer Police Constable Adam Steventon based in Skipton was suspended from driving within North Yorkshire Police and faced being sent to jail for just doing his job.  

PC Steventon attended an incident in which Terence Maugh aged 30 drove off a petrol station without payment.

The officer gave chase for three miles and travelled at speeds varying 30 to 80mph, the Maugh and officer jumped a red light before  Maugh smashed his car into a Citroen C4. 

He then bailed his car and the relentless and dedicated officer continued chase on foot jumping a wall and arrested the male after a foot chase that lasted quater of a mile, He then arrested Maugh. 

Maugh was jailed for 12 months for danerous drivint and making off without payment.

What followed was the arrest of PC Steventon a dedicated officer with a 20 year career as a blue light officer. 

His force charged him with dangerous driving but it took a jury just 45 minutes to find him not guilty.

If he had been found guilty he was facing a driving ban, prison and being kicked out of the police. 

Judge Paul Watson QC told him: “Adam Steventon you are a police officer of 20 years standing. You are a highly-regarded professional officer. On March 12 last year you had to make a judgment call against a background of a lack of training by your police force. You made that call in the belief it was in the best interests of the public. There will be others that say you deserve praise rather than prosecution. After all you, and your family has been through, it would be an affront to natural justice if you were to face any other internal disciplinary procedure. I hope that will not be the case.

“It only remains for me to say it is a pleasure to say you can go free from court.”

DEAD: Sally Jones Britain’s Most Wanted Woman and Islamic State Recruiter Killed

Published

The White Widow Sally Jones has been Killed in a US Drone Strike, Jones who had planned many terror attacks fled the UK to become a IS Recruiter.

She was Britain’s Most Wanted Woman. It is believed she died in a US Air Force Drone Strike which happened near to the border of Syria and Iraq.

Jones was killed in June 2017, with the news kept hush because of fears that her 12-year-old son may have also been killed.

Jones left her home in Chatham, Kent in 2013 with her son Jojo to join Islamic State in Syria. During this time she often used her son as a human shield to save her own life.

The CIA and MI6 spent months tracking down Jones before they launched a Drone Strike and killed her.

She played a key role in the recruitment of young females becoming jihadis often leaving their families in the middle of the night to head out and join the Islamic State.

Despite the claims that Jones is dead, the US cannot 100 percent be sure she is dead, as they made no attempt to recover any DNA, But they are very confident that she is dead.

Drone Strikes are very clever in the way they work as they are able to follow targets for a number of weeks before launching a missile attack without any civilians being killed.

However, they cannot confirm if 12-year-old brainwashed Jojo has been killed also, something which the Americans could face a backlash over.

Jojo was brainwashed he faced years of forced lessons in radical Islam & firearms training. He recently featured within an IS execution video standing behind a row of prisoners who was kneeling on the floor before pulling the trigger and murdering them.

Jones converted to Islam and was nicknamed the White Widow after her Islamic State husband Junaid Hussain was killed by a drone in 2015.

Hussain aged 21 and from Birmingham brainwashed Jones to such a degree she became head of recruitment for young women and schoolgirls within the Islamic State.

Jones & Hussain planned many attacks across Europe and America and is believed to have been a key recruiter and brainwasher of many wanting to join the Islamic State.

Jones was linked to the planning of a number of major terror attacks including one which planned to blow up the Queen and Prince Philip on the streets of London during the VJ celebrations.
