Operating on fear and intimidation



Having had one threat to have my personal PC lifted, successfully thwarted by a legal respnse as to proportionality and the illegality of fishing expeditions, it appears that some members of Her Majesties Constabulary are resorting to the old catchall of incitement. This case and the Damian Green case shows that intimidation is the order of the day.

As the economic situation goes into freefall, there will more of this.

incitement - an act of urging on or spurring on or rousing to action or instigating; "the incitement of mutiny"

So what on earth do we do about it? Do we have any barristers on our side? Any way of being able to get in contact with each other if someone comes a-knocking on our doors so that we don't disappear into a black hole somewhere?

Are you going to the "Convention on Modern Liberty"? I've a crush on Helena Kennedy QC. As for plod the (Irish) special branch busted me in '90. Wanted to know what books I was reading. Hope Alex Maskey turns up.Want to tell him what a pluperfect cunt he is.

MARA MACSEOININ said...

Yes, considering going to the COML. Asking what books you were reading? What an extraordinary liberty.

I don`t believe you.

Plod has always operated on threat and fear, but now don't bother with the criminal fraternity so much and have turned their attention to the general public so they can ensure they keep all their perks, privileges and expensive toys. It's not just a bicycle and a truncheon now, you know. And then there's ACPO screwing us all over...

Don't believe what or whom, anon?

Penguin, you're right it's not just a bicycle and truncheon now. Kent Police have just bought another 66 Tasers. Who do you think is getting them? The bloody traffic plods. Do they think my driving is that bad?

I blogged about this case a couple of days ago

-http://tinyurl.com/bjxwdy

and have been looking for follow-ups ever since.

I don't think anybody has quite grasped the implications of this yet - its not just 'thought crime' as in thinking about a crime; this man hadn't thought to commit a crime, nor do could the police necessarily bring a 'thought crime' offence against the man who did post the comments.......Guthrums friend had nothing whatsoever to do with the offence other than the technicality of having arranged the contract.

If I 'think' about a bank robbery, you might as well arrest the bank manager for having allowed me to draw the money out of my account to purchase the balaclava - even more ludicrous if I don't actually make any attempt to carry out the robbery.

We should all be publicising this event, within the blogging community and without......it is far, far more important that Dolly and his silly antics which have taken up so much bandwidth recently.
