An investigation is under way after it was alleged police officers got a vulnerable teenage prisoner drunk on cider to make him confess to 11 crimes he did not commit.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is looking into claims that two detectives from South Wales Police took a 17-year-old boy out of prison on two "drive arounds" of burglary scenes in Cardiff in an unmarked police car in an attempt to falsify their detection rates by having him ask to have the offences taken into consideration.
The teenager's solicitor, Nadeem Majid, said that during one of the trips last month the officers bought the boy cigarettes and two two-litre bottles of Strongbow cider. The detectives are also alleged to have promised the boy, who has been remanded for psychiatric reports pending sentencing for two acts of theft, that he could have a takeaway and see his mother.
The IPCC confirmed that it was investigating five complaints against South Wales Police.
Having "offences taken into consideration" is common practice in the UK and means a criminal can plead guilty to one crime and also admit to others in court without having their sentence affected.

...That is just wrong.

You can get drunk on cider? I didn't know that...

Still, wow, 11 crimes... that he didn't commit.

Those cops out do have there badges taken away, or get put into jail themselves.

What the heck is wrong with these cops? Did they have a grudge against this teen or something?

I'll be glad when these crooked cops are out of a job.
My local department is pretty bad but still over 50% of the officers do good.

They should also be prosecuted for the crimes they commited and/or sued.

And if people know that they got them drunk, then this shouldn't stay hidden for long ._.;
They should definitely get punished.

So let me get this straight...two crooked detectives got lazy and chose a random kid in prison for petty theft, drove him around the city, and then got him drunk and confess to the crimes?

The cops may have been at fault here, but the kid is definitely a grade-A idiot as well. >_>

This is just wrong. Are you serious?!

And yes, you can get drunk on cider. Just like beer, if you let it ferment, it will become alcoholic. I'm not too worried about saying this, because I'm sure you can easily find out how on Google.

That, and if you look in the grocery store, you'll find in the section with the alcohol a product called "hard cider". That's all it is.

I don't use "uber" Pokemon, I don't calculate stat values, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.

That's ridiculous, didn't they think that it would be easily proved wrong since they had no evidence and the person they were accusing was drunk? They should really be sued.
