4WardEver UK

4WardEverUK was launched in 2006 by Tippa Naphtali the cousin of Mikey Powell, who died in the custody of West Midlands police, Birmingham, UK in September 2003. Its purpose is to provide profiles, news, event details, resources and useful information, appeals, and more in relation to deaths in custody and other injustices. 4WardEver is run entirely by a small volunteer team, and funded from voluntary contributions and donations. We support the call for reform within police, penal and mental health institutions in the UK and internationally.

    My son was recently in Hassockfield aged 14 ..(2009) where on several visits I found him to be battered and bruised from restraining techniques acquired from between 4-6 grown men… head rubbed face down against carpets causing friction burn to his face etc etc.. So really think nothing much has changed there and never will until some other helpless teenager chooses to end his pain.. Bullying power happy ***** !!!!

    I was a victim of N.Husband, out with all the other victims; I am going it alone I have given up the right to anonymity to bring him to justice. I was at medomsley serving 9mths DC in 1983, as other victims have stressed “who would believe me” as the governor was his friend, why have came forward now?

    Through shear coincidence I was writing a brief on stress when I came across the release of husband, I live in Glasgow always have done got 9mth York crown court for smash & grab whilst visiting Scarborough, I have given lengthy statements to Strathclde police in conjunction with Durham police, who arrested Husband and questioned him on the offences against myself, no comments replied he was released on police bail to attend the station to sign in whilst living in a bail hostel.

    I am 45 a Health and Safety co-ordinator for a major company throughout Europe, if anyone can give me support.
