The shocking truth about police corruption in Britain

Post  Thetruth on Thu 05 Mar 2015, 2:13 pm

"One of Hogan-Howe’s first moves after arriving at the Met was to use the Official Secrets Act to try to compel a Guardian journalist to reveal the source of a story about celebrity phone hacking. The Official Secrets Act is meant principally to be used to trap spies, traitors and those who threaten the defence of the realm — not reporters going about their legitimate business. This was a disproportionate and oppressive use of the law.

Similarly, legislation designed to combat terrorism and serious crime, such as the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act, is used with alarming frequency by Hogan-Howe and other police chiefs to snoop on the internet and phone records of law-abiding citizens. This is the tactic of the police state. Not so much total policing as totalitarian policing."

From The Spectator, via Guido Fawkes.

When I got my driving licence in the mid-seventies, I was advised to have a ten pound note folded inside my licence. Being foreign I had to ask why and the whole thing was patiently explained to me. 

On another occasion I was stopped when riding pillion as I didn't have a helmet on. A very posh girlfriend was the driiver and after two policemen had established that I'd forgotten to sign my licence, they came back to my flat with us, had a couple of beers and my posh friend found one of the policemen and she had mutual friends in Scotland. That's as deep as I thought corruption went. 

Certainly would not dream of keeping folded money in my licence in NL!

I always knew there was corruption, but never realized how far it goes. You like to think it's just a few bad apples, but to know the whole orchard is bad is very depressing.

The whole orchard isn't bad , admittedly there are a few corrupt officers and there shouldn't be any , but the vast majority are honest , hard working and want to do a good job

Yes, I certainly cannot believe that every single police officer is corrupt.

If nothing else, the average uniformed officer doesn't have enough influence to be able to gain anything from being corrupt but has a lot to loose.

Even the BBC is having to cover the story

Met probed over abuse 'corruption'
Breaking news
The police watchdog is to investigate alleged corruption in the Metropolitan Police dealing with claims of child sex offences from the 1970s to the 2000s.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission said the allegations were of "historic, high-level corruption of the most serious nature".

Sarah Green, deputy chairwoman of the IPCC, said "allegations of this nature are of grave concern".

Here is Sky News reporting the same story as the post at 12.36 above.

http://news.sky.com/story/1445978/met-investigated-over-child-sex-cover-up-claims

This time we have an insight from their Crime Reporter himself

Sky's Crime Correspondent Martin Brunt said: "Just when you thought this couldn't go any deeper, it does."


Sorry for repeat posts, but here lies root of of all things that are not well in the UK, in my opinion.

How much longer will everyone in the UK put up with it ??

Nothing concrete or  conclusive about Police findings at Haute De La Garenne was there. Like to see this opened up again, sure it all leads back to the UK.

How much longer will everyone in the UK put up with it ??

Trouble is this is all very well and a move forward  but they never bring to justice the people controlling it all at the top, too many S Societies.
