If this ends up leading to an acquittal, I will fucking go on a bloody rampage.
Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins was arrested by a bunch of incompetents, it seems, who rushed to react during their investigation into the alleged pederast with a penchant for pet porn.
A press release claims the Independent Police Complaints Commission is investigating the South Wales Police’s arrest of Ian.
“Our investigation will determine whether or not South Wales Police failed to take appropriate and timely action,” says the release from IPCC.
“We received a referral from South Wales Police on 25 January 2013 relating to Ian Watkins. Following a thorough assessment I have decided that we will carry out an independent investigation,” the statement says.
“Our investigation will determine whether or not South Wales Police failed to take appropriate and timely action in relation to information they were in receipt of in advance of Mr. Watkins subsequent arrest.”
It seems they knew long before busting him that he was into animal raunch and tried to rape an infant. And that he may have been even creepier than that.
“We are aware of four forces having provided South Wales Police with information but, as criminal proceedings are active, it would be inappropriate to publish further information at this time,” the statement says.
Watkins will be in court next on March 11.
He remains in police custody.
