Prison officers 'stood guard while woman officer had sex with a dangerous rapist'

Prison officers 'stood guard while woman officer had sex with a dangerous rapist' | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it
Leeds Crown Court has heard how some staff members - including Karen Cosford, pictured - at Wakefield's maximum security prison are accused of being in an 'utterly corrupt relationship' with a rapist.

 

A prison nurse romped with a convicted rapist while colleagues stood guard and sent him text messages on his contraband mobile phone telling him 'you're generous, sensitive and dead sexy', a court heard.
A jury was told Karen Cosford, 47, had a sexual relationship with lifer Brian McBride and topped up his mobile phone for him.
The court heard Cosford sent the serial rapist a catalogue of texts including telling him 'you are my world', 'miss you so much' and 'can't wait for you to get out'.
Carolyn Falloon, 50, Jacqueline Flynn, 46, and David Sunderland, 49, who all worked on the healthcare wing at high-security Wakefield Prison, West Yorkshire, are also standing trial at Leeds Crown Court charged with one or both of the following offences - failing to notify prison authorities about the sexual relationship between Cosford and McBride, and failing to tell them McBride had a mobile phone.

Prosecutors say that, despite the defendants denying the charges, Flynn admitted during police interviews that she stood guard outside McBride's cell while the pair were inside - and heard the 'jangling' of Cosford's keys - while Falloon told police she had disturbed them having sex.
The jury heard that Cosford, who has 15 years experience in her occupation, was described as being 'touchy-feely' with McBride, resting her head on his chest, laughing and even kissing him in the prison - a notorious facility situated on Love Lane.

The court heard that McBride, a who was serving a life sentence for multiple offences of rape and violence, was in the healthcare centre as an in-patient and worked as a cleaner while he was there.
Richard Wright, prosecuting, told the court it was here that the defendants started entering into 'corrupt relationships' with McBride.
Mr Wright said: 'In the case of Karen Cosford, she had a sexual relationship with him.
'All the defendants knew that he was in possession of a mobile phone and SIM card, which were prohibited items that not even staff could take into prison.

'Falloon and Cosford purchased top ups for him in a blatant breach of the Prison Service.
'Cosford, Flynn and Falloon engaged in regular texting and telephone conversations with McBride when they were not at work.
'David Sunderland supplied McBride with a cribsheet setting out how he could access handsets and his home telephone number was found in McBride hand sets.'
The court heard that events unfolded when a search of McBride on September 25, 2009 found a mobile phone charger.
Mr Wright said McBride was put in his cell and a thorough search of the wing carried out. In the kitchen a bag of sugar was found, in which there were mobile phone top-up documents, pieces of paper with mobile phone numbers on, a photograph of a nurse who was identified as Cosford, and an unsigned love letter.
Four mobile phones were also found during the search.
The jury heard that, during the search, McBride became agitated in his cell so a number of negotiators working in the Prison Service were called - and by chance one was Darrie Cosford, Karen Cosford's husband.

Mr Wright said it was during the negotiation that McBride hinted to Darrie Cosford that he had been having a relationship with his wife.
The jury heard Karen Cosford called in sick to work the next day and over the weekend, and on September 28 reported to prison authorities that McBride had raped her.
But Mr Wright told the court her stories were inconsistent during police interviews.
Cosford told police he had forced her to write the love letter found in the bag of sugar and offered to pay her mortgage and buy her a flat.
She also said that Flynn and Falloon had stood guard outside McBride's cell while she performed a sex act on him.
Cosford also claimed McBride had forced her to text him - a claim rejected by the prosecution, who read to the jury text messages sent by Cosford.
One read: 'I'm trying to ring, engaged. D [her husband] home soon, can't believe how we get on sometimes especially this morn. We need to be really careful will try and ring later. Love and hugs me.'
Another read: 'Hope you still love and miss me like I do you. Can't wait for you to get out. Want the first time to be so special me and you xx.'
Another read: 'You are my world now don't let me down. Miss you so much. It's been a difficult journey. You're generous, sensitive when you want to be and dead sexy.'
Mr Wright also alleged that Cosford warned McBride not to use his mobile phone because prison authorities were tracing calls - something he said she would not have done for someone who was allegedly raping and threatening her.
The text message Cosford sent read: 'Don't use bone [phone] to ring anyone now... don't know what information they have and on who.'
Mr Wright said Falloon, of Wakefield, told police during interviews that she had disturbed Cosford and McBride having sex, and said that the two were always laughing together and would kiss in her presence.
The court heard she also told them that McBride offered her money to help reduce her debts if she kept quiet about the situation and helped him get mobile phone top-ups.
The jury heard Flynn, of South Kirkby, West Yorkshire, told police during interviews that McBride would rant and rave about Cosford and if she did not say goodbye when she ended her shift he would be upset.
Flynn described Cosford and McBride as 'touchy feely'. Mr Wright said: 'She saw them kissing and stood outside the cell door when Cosford and McBride were alone in it.
'She heard rhythmic noises including the jangling of Cosford's key chain.'
Sunderland, of Wakefield, continually denied knowing about the mobile phones or the relationship.
Mr Wright said another prison officer, Kevin Wilson, 57, who has admitted providing McBride with a SIM card and knowing about the relationship, is also willing to testify that Sunderland knew about the mobile phone and was McBride's 'right-hand man'.
He said: 'There was a simple motive here, greed', alleging that the defendants had been duped by McBride's claims of wealth on the outside.
Mr Wright told the jury: 'Through 2008 and 2009 the prosecution argues that roles and responsibilities in the healthcare unit were turned on their heads as members of staff allowed themselves to be drawn into utterly corrupt relationships with Brian McBride that undermined the integrity, security and safety of the prison.
'There was no doubt that McBride was an intelligent and well-practised manipulator who was an expert in inveigling his way into the confidence of others.
'We accept that he delighted in breaking down the barriers of appropriate conduct and behaviour that should have separated him from the prison service staff.
'We accept that he did so in a process of manipulation and deceit.'
Cosford denies having a sexual relationship with McBride, failing to notify authorities that he had a phone and purchasing top-ups for him.
Falloon denies failing to notify authorities about the relationship and the phone, and purchasing top-ups.
Flynn denies failing to notify authorities about the relationship and the phone.
Sunderland denies failing to notify authorities about the phone.

Manchester Al Qaida Terrorist Recalled To Prison

Manchester Al Qaida Terrorist Recalled To Prison | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

A Muslim extremist fanatic who was convicted of terrorism charges back in 2008 and sentenced to 10 years in prison was released on licence after serving just less than 3 years of his sentence, has been now recalled for breaching his early release conditions.

 

Ex taxi driver Habib Ahmed 32 of Cheetham Hill Manchester, was serving the sentence for being an active member of the terror group Al Qaida, and the possession of documentation of terror related purposes, Habib was also found attempting to smuggle coded secret books to the UK, which held contacts, and phone numbers to key figures of the terrorist underworld, and was a key to any potential UK terrorist massacre.

Greater Manchester Police and Special Branch officers, from the UK secret services intercepted Habib’s plans to attempt to bring the two secret books heading from Pakistan via Dubai with plans.

Habid was discovered with diaries written in invisible ink, containing details of senior Al Qaida terrorists, and was described at Manchester Crown Court as a ‘Terrorist contact booklet.’

It is also believed Habib downloaded a document called “a study of assassination”; he also looked up bomb-making techniques and checked the addresses of ex-Defence Secretary Geoff Hoon, military bases, and senior policemen.

Habib was also jailed with his assailant from Rochdale, Rangzieb Ahmed, who was the first ever terrorist to be jailed in the UK, Ahmed was also handed a jail sentence for the minimum of 10 years for directing terrorist activity within the mainland.

Part of Habib’s early release licence were strict conditions and observations from Greater Manchester Police, the licence was quickly breached, it has been established that Habib was held after he began worshipping at an unauthorised mosque and bought an unauthorised mobile phone.

Mr Mercer, an ex-Army colonel, said: “We have a terrorist released unusually early from prison and what does he do? He says ‘Thank you’.
“It’s a blunder by the licensing board and questions must be asked why they deemed him fit to be free after three tenths of his sentence” Mr Mercer concluded.

Gary Tumulty Salford British National Party Organiser also said “The first question I would like to an answer to is what an unauthorised mosque is?
“It is total madness to let a known terrorist be let out of prison; we have the biggest single event to hit the UK shortly, The Olympics, which some of the events happen to take place in Manchester, The authorities have breached the public’s safety by allowing such a person to walk the streets, who would be only to happy to cause a massive atrocity to this country.

“There is no real deterrent in this legal system, he should be deported or hung, I just hope the people who have dumbed down the legal system in this country get their comeuppance, because when the British National Party take control of this country we will hold every single one of them accountable for their actions, that have destroyed this country” Gary Concluded.

It is believed Habib was arrested at the home of wife Mehreen Haji, 31, where he was staying, who coincidently was arrested back in September 2006 and charged with supplying £4,000 to Habib Ahmed "knowing or having reasonable suspicion that it would, or might be used for the purposes of terrorism".

Police also claimed the pair were members of Al-Muhajiroun, the Islamic militant group founded by radical Muslim cleric Omar Bakri Mohammed who was then serving a jail sentence for inciting terrorism.

Mehreen Haji was cleared of two counts of arranging funding for the purposes of terrorism; there was not enough evidence to support the police claims which allowed her to walk free from the court.

Habib Ahmed will now face a hearing to see whether he must serve the rest of his licence behind bars. No date has been announced, but rest assured the British National Party will be following this case very closely.

Muslim murderers given microwaves to heat food up during Ramadan!

Muslim murderers given microwaves to heat food up during Ramadan! | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it
Muslim murderers have demanded and been given microwaves to heat their food up during Ramadan, leaving other prisoners at Gartree jail in Leicestershire, furious and claiming Muslims are receiving preferential treatment.

 

Muslim prisoners complained that last year’s food – served was cold when they began to eat it during darkness, the end of the fasting period.
Caterers will now deliver their meals, which they will warm up in ¬the microwaves provided.

Fadi Nasri, 33, who organised the murder of his special constable wife, is just one of the Muslim prisoners at the jail serving life.

One man said: “The ¬Muslim lads kicked up a stink last year over the food they received for Ramadan.

“And guess what? The authorities gave in and gave the green light. It’s a f**king liberty.

“If the non-Muslims asked for this they’d be told where to go.”

He pointed out a severe security risk that prisoners could easily smash the microwaves and use sharp pieces as weapons.

A Prison Service spokesman said: “HMP Gartree is in the process of having its kitchen rebuilt.

“A number of microwaves have been purchased for the kitchen area and for some prisoners observing Ramadan so they can heat up food in their cells.”

Prisoners under pressure to convert to Muslim ‘gang’

Prisoners under pressure to convert to Muslim ‘gang’ | Race & Crime UK | Scoop.it

Inmates at HMP Whitemoor told researchers commissioned by the Ministry of Justice that they changed their faith for protection or because they were bullied into it.

Prison guards said they had a policy of “appeasement” towards the powerful and growing Islamic population, particularly convicted terrorists who were feared to be recruiting future extremists.

Non-believers avoided confrontation with any Muslim in case it led to retribution from the wider group, and said they even avoided cooking pork or bacon in communal kitchens or undressing in the showers in case it caused offence.

The report, written by researchers at the Cambridge Institute of Criminology, said: “Conflict and tension existed between and within faith groups.

“There were some intimidating ‘heavy players’ among the Muslim population, who appeared to be orchestrating prison power dynamics rather than propagating or following the faith. Many physically powerful prisoners ‘re-established their outside identities’ as leaders in the prison and used their (newly acquired) faith status as a tool for establishing influence.

“Non-Muslim prisoners described wearing underpants in the showers on some spurs (out of ‘respect’ and fear) and some Muslim prisoners described a form of intimidation exerted (‘they probably do feel shamed’) relating to cooking (especially frying bacon) in the kitchens.”

HMP Whitemoor is situated in a “remote Fenland town” far from most inmates’ families, and is home to 440 Category A and B prisoners, almost all of whom are serving more than 10 years behind bars and seven of home are convicted terrorists.

Opened in 1991, three years later it was the scene of an escape by six prisoners including some IRA members.

Following concerns over Islamic radicalisation in a 2008 report by inspectors, researchers visited Whitemoor between 2009 and 2010 to interview staff and inmates.

They found that more than a third (35 to 39 per cent) of prisoners are now Muslims, compared with 11 per cent across all jails.

Many of those they spoke to had converted while inside but they had mixed motivations for doing so, and not all had done so voluntarily.

Reasons included “seeking care and protection”, “gang membership” and “coercion” as well as “rebellion” since Islam was seen as the “underdog”.

Prisoners told the researchers that becoming Muslim was a “cover” for power and influence.

Loners including sex offenders gained safety from joining a large and dominant group, as fellow members would defend them.

Non-Muslims and prison officers claimed that it was an “organised gang” and a “protection racket” rather than a religion, which “glorified terrorist behaviour and exploited the fear related to it”.

Others said they had felt under pressure to convert, with people leaving Islamic literature in their cells and telling them to “read this”, or promising they would be safe from physical assault if they changed faith.

“The threat of assaults motivated by religious fanaticism or extremist ideology added weight to the atmosphere at Whitemoor.”

Guards said there were “proper Al-Qaeda” members in the jail, who were regarded with “awe” by younger inmates, but they avoided confrontation and had “runners” to do their bidding.

Some prisoners described the place as a “recruiting drive for the Taliban” and fertile ground for hatred and a new generation of extremists.

One inmate said he was targeted because he wore a Remembrance Day poppy and his brother served in the Army, with people shouting “your wife’s burning in hell because she’s not a Muslim” at him.

But it was also claimed that non-Muslims felt “envy” at the preferential treatment, including better food, given to Muslims.

The report concluded: “The new population mix, including younger, more black and minority ethnic and mixed race, and high numbers of Muslim prisoners, was disrupting established hierarchies in the prison. Social relations among prisoners had become complex and less visible. Too much power flowed among some groups of prisoners, with some real risks of serious violence. There were high levels of fear in the prison. In particular, there were tensions and fears relating to ‘extremism’ and ‘radicalisation’.

“More prominent, in practice, were pressures (and temptations) felt by some prisoners to convert to Islam. Conditions in the prison made participation in Islamic practices the most ‘available’ option for those looking for belonging, meaning, ‘brotherhood’, trust and friendship.”
