Two dead police officers who took gruesome photos of two murdered sisters they called “dead birds” also sent racist WhatsApp messages about a new patrol area containing no “p***s”.
PC Jamie Lewis, 33, and PC Deniz Jaffer, 47, admitted this month to taking and sharing photos of the scene where sisters Bibaa Henry, 46, and Nicole Smallman, 27, were murdered in June last year. A disciplinary panel found both guilty of serious misconduct.
It has now emerged that the officers have also made racist remarks and the use of the term ‘p***s’ in WhatsApp has been exchanged on a separate issue.
BC Helen Tierney, representing Cressida Dick, told the panel: ‘BC Jafar used the term ‘p***s’ in a message to members of the public.
He twice referred to Asian men using this word in a conversation about something unrelated to public order in a WhatsApp group that included members of the public.
She added, according to The Times: ‘Lewis responded by agreeing to another officer’s use of the word when talking about the benefits of moving to another place of work. “On the plus side, no p***s,” the officer said, and B.C. Lewis replied, “Exactly.” ”

Lewis and Jafar refused to appear in court yesterday at the Met’s Empress Building in west London, but have been found guilty of gross misconduct by Assistant Commissioner Helen Paul.
They have previously admitted in court to taking and sharing photos of the women, and they are due to be sentenced on December 6.
‘This was hurtful, dishonest and unprofessional behaviour,’ said Mrs. Poole.
I am sorry that our officers acted in a malicious, disrespectful and criminal manner. Their actions are shameful.
Lewis would be dismissed from the Metropolitan Police immediately, and Jafar, who had already left the force, would have been dismissed without warning if he was still a serving officer.
The hearing was told that both officers left the cordon and were told to guard and took photographs of the mortally wounded corpses of the two sisters.
Jafar and Lewis were supposed to protect the place after the two sisters were found stabbed to death in Fryant Country Park in Wembley, northwest London.
But instead, they breached the collar to take “indecent” and “unauthorized” photos of the bodies, which were then sent “to a dentist and a doctor”, and a WhatsApp group.

Mina, the mother of Mrs. Henry and Mrs. Smallman, has criticized the Commissioner of Meteorology for the unprofessional investigation into the deaths of her two daughters.
Jafar took four photographs and Louis took two – one of which was sent to a female colleague with Louis’ face on it.
The police watchdog IOPC later revealed that Lewis had also used ‘degrading and sexist language’ to describe the victims in the WhatsApp team group of 42 colleagues.
Earlier this month, Ms Cressida Dick apologized for the second time for the incident.
But Mina, Ms Smallman’s mother, and Ms Smallman’s mother, Mina, drew criticism for the Meteorological Commissioner’s unprofessional investigation into the deaths of her two daughters.
She criticized, “her lousy manner of acting and responsiveness because it all came out” adding, “She didn’t call us to say I was really sorry. She didn’t speak up in this story at all.
Smallman said the Met was ‘far from hope’, adding: ‘You go to London to start preparing for your dead children’s funeral, and you’re told that the police officers who should have protected the area had already taken selfies and sent them to a dentist, a doctor and a Watts group. Father.
After pleading guilty, the Met said it’s taking “immediate steps” to put former PC Jaffer, who has resigned from the force, and PC Lewis ahead of speedy misconduct hearings.

A commissioner who met Dick said: “I am deeply sorry that while they mourned the loss of loved ones who had been caught in such awful circumstances, they faced the additional ordeal of the actions of two police officers.
What Louis Jaafar and his ex-PC chose to do that day was completely unprofessional, disrespectful and extremely insensitive. I know this is the opinion of colleagues across the Met who utterly condemn this behavior.
Today they have pleaded guilty to a serious criminal offense and judgment will follow in due course.
I apologized to the Biba and Nicole family in June of last year, and on behalf of Mitt, I apologize again today.
“Now that the judicial process has reached this stage, we can take officers through an accelerated process of misconduct.”
Jafar, 47, of Hornchurch, east London, and Lewis, 33, of Colchester, Essex, were arrested as part of a criminal investigation by the Independent Office of Police Conduct Oversight (IOPC).
The accusation against each of them stated that he “entered without permission a crime scene he was assigned to protect, and sent information about his attendance at the crime scene to members of the public via WhatsApp and took pictures of the crime scene.”
The sisters’ mother, Mina Smallman, who called the officers “despicable,” sat in court for the hearing.
Out of court, Paul Goddard, of the Public Prosecution Service, said: “PC Jimmy Lewis’ and PC’s Denise Jafar’s senseless behavior was much less than what was expected of police officers.

These officers are tasked with protecting a tragic crime scene.
Instead, they violated it for their own purposes, with no regard for the dignity of the victims, or the harm they would do to a murder investigation.
No doubt their reckless and insensitive actions caused more distress and pain to the family and friends of Nicole Smallman and the devastated Pippa Henry, who were already left reeling from the loss of loved ones. Our thoughts are with them a lot at this time.
The two, attached to Mett’s Northeast Command unit, were suspended from duty after their arrest on June 22 last year.
