#Hackgate #MET police tried to cover up hacking...

#GuidoFawkes is he having a laugh?

Guido Fawkes must surely jest , he is calling for the return of the death penalty ! Just take a look at this blog and witness for yourselves the corruption in the British Police Force. We have MURDOCH who has bribed Judges and Goverment,  not to mention corrupt lawyers who threaten witnessess so they are too afraid to speak out. The McCanns running the largest missing persons fraud ever to be seen supported by MURDOCH and his middle man Clarence Mitchell. The Goverment confirming ALL DNA of innocent people will be kept on a database...So, to sum up we have corrupt judges , corrupt coppers who can easily plant evidence of an innocent person placing him or her at the scene of a crime just because they did not like the look of your face. Dear God help us all with fools like Guido one wonders whose side is he on ?  

I can only assume he has ONLY just found out his phone has been hacked explaining this strange turn of events !

#PoliceState: Welcome you are now under 24 hour surveillance !

The Telegraph – Innocent people’s DNA profiles won’t be deleted after all, minister admits
Daniel Hamilton, a director at campaign group Big Brother Watch, said: “This is a disgraceful U-turn on the part of the government. Destroying physical DNA samples is a pointless gesture if the computer records are to be retained.
“Despite paying lip service to freedom and civil liberties, this government is fast proving itself to be every bit as illiberal as its predecessor.”
The Guardian – Welcome to Royston … you’re under surveillance
In June, three campaign groups – NoCCTV, Privacy International and Big Brother Watch – made a complaint to the Information Commissioner’s Office, alleging the Royston ANPR installation is illegal.

But Daniel Hamilton, director of the civil liberties group Big Brother Watch, told the BBC: “The information will still be held by the state and won’t be deleted, which represents a U-turn.”
Reigate Mirror – Police security breaches out in open  [not available online]
The details were uncovered by civil liberties group Big Brother Watch following a request under the Freedom of Information Act, for the three years from 2008 to 2010.
Commenting on the research findings, Daniel Hamilton, director of Big Brother Watch added: “Police forces must adopt a zero tolerance approach to this kind of behaviour.
“Those found guilty of abusing their position should be sacked on the spot.”

Daniel Hamilton, of privacy campaign group Big Brother Watch, said: “Evidence for the ability of CCTV to deter or solve crimes is sketchy at best.
“Residents will be outraged the council is intending to blow this much on a new CCTV network.”
BBC News – Ministers accused of DNA database U-turn
But Daniel Hamilton, director of the civil liberties group Big Brother Watch, said the anonymised samples would still have a bar code on them which would allow them to be “married up” with information about individuals.
“The information will still be held by the state and won’t be deleted, which represents a U-turn by the government,” he told BBC News.
“Destroying physical DNA samples is a pointless gesture if the computer records are to be retained.
“Despite paying lip service to freedom and civil liberties, this government is fast proving itself to be every bit as illiberal as its predecessor”.
The Guardian – Police forces come together to create new regional surveillance units

Daniel Hamilton, director of pressure group Big Brother Watch, expressed concern over “expansion by stealth” of the police’s ability to conduct invasive surveillance, and called for a review of the police’s Ripa powers. “While covert operations play an important role in solving criminal investigations, these operations should be the exception, not the norm,” he said. “Expanding the use of wiretaps and the monitoring of internet connections risks dragging scores of innocent people into police investigations they should rightly play no part in.
“The government has pledged to limit the ease by which local councils can utilise Ripa powers. A similar review of police Ripa powers should take place.”
Medway News – Police fired 10 for data abuse  [not available online]
According to figures obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by website Big Brother Watch, which scrutinises public bodies, Kent Police terminated employment in ten cases and a further 28 workers faced internal disciplinary procedures between 2007 and 2010.

#Cenorship of the #INTERNET without debate!

Where is the web blocking debate?

The disclosure that the Government is actively discussing web-blocking will come as no surprise to many following the debate – but the fact that the confirmation had to be secured through an FOI request should be of real concern.

The inclusion of the Digital Economy Act in the wash up dramatically curtailed public debate around the significant powers contained within it. Whatever your views on the copyright and civil liberties issues involved, it was an affront to the democratic process for such a piece of legislation to be rushed through far from the glare of public scrutiny. Furthermore, the resulting legislation suffered massively from a lack of input and debate, in an area of policy that is absolutely central to Britain’s future as a digital knowledge economy.

BT ordered to block

A High Court judge ruled earlier today that BT must block the file-sharing website Newsbin – the first time such a judgement has been handed down in the history of UK law. Using the blocking technology CleanFeed, Newzbin2 will be inaccessible for BT customers as a result of a copyright infringement case brought by the Motion Picture Industry of America.

#PoliceState #Coalition u-turn on #DNA database

This week it was confirmed that the government is to abandon its Coalition Agreement pledge to delete the profiles of more than 1 million innocent people from the national DNA database.

In a letter from the Home Office minister James Brokenshire to MPs, he confirmed that DNA profiles of those arrested but never charged or found guilty of a crime would be retained by forensic science  laboratories in an anonymised form. Profiles would “be considered to have been deleted even though the DNA profile record, minus the identification information, will still exist”.

This is a disgraceful u-turn on the part of the government. It represents a betrayal of an explicit commitment made in the Coalition Agreement and stands in contravention of a ruling by the European Court of Human Rights banning the retention of innocent people’s DNA.

Destroying physical DNA samples is a pointless gesture if the computer records are to be retained. 

Please do get in touch with your MP and make your views on this issue clear.

#Hackgate : Andy #Hayman Britains most corrupt copper !

The #MET are brutal and corrupt and NOT on our side !

Can confidence in the Metropolitan police sink any lower? Even before the past few weeks revealed the possibility of their complicity in the News of the World hacking scandal, and the past few months their brutal attitude towards the policing of students and other protesters, there were many who already had reason to mistrust those who claim to be "working together for a safer London".
Take Ann Roberts, a special needs assistant, who was recently given the go-ahead in the high court to challenge the allegedly racist way in which stop-and–search powers are used: her lawyers claim statistics indicate that a black person is more than nine times more likely to be searched than a white person.

Or take the family of Smiley Culture, still waiting for answers after the reggae singer died in a police raid on his home in March this year. They are campaigning on behalf of all those who've died in police custody. Inquest, a charity which deals with contentious death, particularly in police custody, reports that more than 400 people from black and ethnic minority communities have died in prison, police custody and secure training centres in England and Wales since 1990.
Ian Tomlinson's family may finally be able to see some justice when PC Simon Harwood comes to court in October on manslaughter charges, but if the story had not been tenaciously pursued by journalists (particularly the Guardian's Paul Lewis) the police would no doubt be sticking to their line that a man had merely collapsed at the G20 protests and that missiles had been thrown at medics when they tried to help him.

The appointment of Cressida Dick as head of counter-terrorism following John Yates's resignation is similarly unlikely to inspire confidence in anyone who remembers her role in authorising the fatal shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes in 2005, mistaken for a terror suspect because an officer decided he had "distinctive Mongolian eyes".

One of the positive effects of "citizen journalism" is how much harder it makes it for the authorities to disseminate disinformation, such as the stories put out by the Met concerning Tomlinson's death. More recently, in the case of the arrests of UK Uncut protesters in Fortnum & Mason, video footage of chief inspector Claire Clark deceiving the group into a mass arrest has proved highly embarrassing to the police, who nevertheless freely admit that arrests at protests are part of an ongoing intelligence-gathering operation. The use of undercover police officers, such as Mark Kennedy, recently found to have unlawfully spied on environmental activists, has further increased suspicions regarding the motivations for police spying, not to mention the fact that its illegality makes it wholly ineffective against those it would seek to prosecute. It is cheering to see those targeted fighting back against such criminalisation of legitimate protest, particularly among those too young to vote, such as Adam Castle, who is taking the police to court over kettling at a student protest last November.

But given the many allegations of police corruption, racism, spying and death in their supposed care, why does anyone feel safe when the police are around? Robert Reiner, professor of criminology at LSE and author of The Politics of the Police, describes the phenomenon of "police fetishism" in the following way: "the ideological assumption that the police are a functional prerequisite of social order so that without a police force chaos would ensue". In fact, as Reiner points out, many societies have existed without an official police force or with very different models of policing in place. While it may be hard to imagine Britain without a police force of some kind, it is increasingly clear that those who "protect" its largest city are far from doing any such thing.

In the runup to the 2012 Olympics, we should be deeply concerned about the Met's policies and actions, particularly when they congratulate themselves on things that appear to be utterly in contrast to the way everyone else experienced them, such as the supposed "restraint" shown by police on recent demonstrations. Before the royal wedding, many were arrested on what have been described as "pre-crime" charges, with the effect that many were banned from the city for several days for doing precisely nothing. In parliament, David Cameron described the royal wedding as a "dry run" for the Olympics. If by this he means simply a large spectacular event watched by many around the world, then that's one thing. If, on the other hand, he means it to be yet another opportunity to pre-emptively criminalise, to increase surveillance, to restrict the movement of individuals and to condemn protesters, then we have a serious problem.

The resignation of those at the top of the police, and waning public trust in police policy in general, give us a perfect opportunity to question the Met's organisation and tactics. It may be difficult to shake off the idea that the police are "a condition of existence of social order", as Reiner puts it, but to stop imagining they are automatically on our side might be a good place to start.

#PoliceState: Yorkshire police stopped and searched 800 people ..there were three arrests !

#SmileyCulture murdered by the #MET ?

Police slush fund for informers/killers,did a deal with copycat Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe for his confessions.

Surrey #Herald: Police breached DATA protection

Daniel Hamilton, Director of Big Brother Watch, said: “Our investigation shows that not only have police employees been found to have run background records checks on friends and possible partners, but some have been convicted for passing sensitive information to criminal gangs and drug dealers. This is at best hugely intrusive and, at worse, downright dangerous.”

No confidence in top cop !

Published on Thursday 14 July 2011 14:51

COUNTY COUNCILLORS are set to propose a vote of no confidence in North Yorkshire’s police chief at a meeting on Wednesday (20 July).

In May chief constable Graham Maxwell was given a final written warning for helping a relative gain an unfair advantage in a police recruitment drive, and now councillors have decided to show their unhappiness at his continued position as leader of North Yorkshire’s police force.

The motion will be proposed at a meeting of North Yorkshire County Council by County Coun Geoff Webber and seconded by County Coun Stuart Parsons.
It will say: “Following the chief constable’s admission of gross misconduct, and the significant expense to the public purse of the enquiry resulting from his failure to admit the gross misconduct at an early stage, that this council no longer has confidence in Mr Maxwell as chief constable.”

Mr Maxwell is thought to be the first chief constable to have faced gross misconduct charges in more than 30 years.

He became North Yorkshire’s chief constable in 2007, joining from South Yorkshire Police, where he had been a deputy since 2005.

Inspector Geraint Lloyd Evans jailed for sexual child abuse..

A POLICEMAN has been charged with child sex offences.

Geraint Lloyd Evans will appear at Swansea Crown Court on March 11.

He has been charged with three counts of making indecent images of children; possessing four images of child abuse; conspiring to incite sexual activity with a child under 13 and possessing extreme pornography.

The 47-year-old officer, of Manor Drive, Coychurch, Bridgend, was held on remand after appearing at Llanelli Magistrates yesterday.

IPCC Commissioner for Wales, Tom Davies, said: “I am satisfied that this is being thoroughly investigated.

“It would be inappropriate to comment further now that the judicial process has started.”

A spokesman added: “The Independent Police Complaints Commission is managing an investigation by South Wales Police public protection unit into allegations that 47-year-old Inspector Evans was in possession of indecent images of children.

“A separate SWP criminal investigation in connection with this case has led to the arrest of four members of the public.

“Three have been charged and are being held on remand.”
