An incident that could have come straight out of a Keystone Cop film is the policeman who accidentally shot himself in the leg as he was getting into a car in central London. If the policeman is that useless in handling firearms, should he really be allowed to carry a gun?
A policeman banned from every pub in his town after a fight in a wine bar has been moved to a new job - with the force's armed response unit. Gary Souter, 28, will be allowed to carry a gun despite facing a disciplinary hearing over the fight. One publican said it was "beyond belief" that the constable, who was banned for life from all 30 bars in Cardigan, West Wales, can now handle firearms.
Now for something more sinister; weapons expert Dr David Kelly was assassinated, an MP claims. Campaigning politician Norman Baker believes Dr Kelly, who exposed the Government's "sexed-up" Iraq dossier, was killed to stop him making further revelations about the lies that took Britain to war. Fresh doubts were raised over the suicide of Dr David Kelly after it emerged that no fingerprints were found on the knife he supposedly used to kill himself. The Hutton Inquiry into the death of the Ministry of Defence weapons expert ruled that he slashed one of his wrists with a blunt garden knife and took an overdose of pills. So was Kelly killed by the Government? The police were happy with a suicide verdict, is that poor policing or going along with what the Government want the public to believe.
A disabled anti-abortion campaigning grandmother avoided prison after a fellow campaigner paid off a £500 fine to save her being put behind bars.Wheelchair user Veronica Connolly, of Broadmeadow Road, Shard End, was given the £500 fine by Solihull Magistrates or told she would be jailed for 14 days. She had refused to pay the fine imposed after she was convicted under the 1988 Malicious Communications Act. An earlier hearing was told she had sent images of aborted foetuses to pharmacies in Solihull in 2005 in protest to them selling the morning-after pill. She was threatened with jail for campaigning against the Government's pro abortion stance or as the pro-life campaigners say the murdering of our unborn children.
Police closed down one of the world's largest illegal music file-sharing websites in a raid on a flat in Middlesborough. The website owner's flat, father's home and a large multinational company were raided. The 3 month investigation also involved Interpol and Dutch authorities. All that police involvement to protect the music industry's profits. Yet police regularly fail to put themselves out for more mundane crimes that affect the public.
Cash for honours investigation involving MP's and the Prime Minister found much evidence during the sixteen month investigation but at the end of it no charges were brought even though the Assistant Commisioner hinted that he had built a strong case. The investigation had dragged on because some Downing Street aids had not co-operated fully with the investigations.
Bear these facts in mind too;
There are 267 legal means of entry to your home, one is by yourself entering the front door the other 266 are by Government agents who for what ever reason want to enter your home and of course it's the police who are on hand to make this happen. There is a 268th reason and that's by the burglar come to steal your property which these days the police seem not to want to get involved with.
Last year police in Kent only solved 27% of all crimes.
There is one CCTV camera for every twelve people in this country.
The Government has invested heavily in Police Community Support Officers, these are the people now replacing police patrolling our streets although they have no real powers other than handing out on the spot fines for some of the hundreds of new laws brought in by the Labour Government to raise revenue, for example such crimes as smoking in a works vehicle.
There are listening posts on street corners, new legislation for phone calls to be recorded and accessed by hundreds of Government supported agencies.
A policy of collecting DNA samples from the public on the flimsiest of reasons, it has even been suggested these samples will be taken if a motorist is stopped for speeding. A huge database is being built up by stealth.
CCTV , listening posts, DNA, tapped phones do not stop crime they merely collect evidence for use at a later date. Look at some of the CCTV images, those actually committing crimes are wearing hoodies or baseball caps or carrying a paint aerosol to spray the cameras.
In the future as the Government bring in more undemocratic, draconian laws opposition from the public will increase but this is where the measures I have just told you about will be invaluable in catching any objectors.
Here's a thought too, as gun and knife crime explodes out of control on our streets, even schoolchildren kill each other with guns, why don't the police carry out mass stop and searches and enforce the Government's so called tough sentences on the carrying of weapons. Is it so the public are virtually forced to stay indoors for their own safety and unable to mix with like minded members of the public? Opposition against the Government will be harder to organise and people are less likely to get involved in any community issues when they fear for their safety on our dangerous streets?
To my mind all these examples you have just read clearly show the police
neither care nor are up to protecting the public from the lawless elements
of our society. Until the police force is wrested from the hands of
a corrupt , undemocratic Government and are accountable through a governing
body made up of members of the public then the country will continue
to head helter-skelter into lawlessness.
The text below comes from the Civil Liberty website, it's by Kevin Scott BA Hons, the Founder and Director.
" This will come as a surprise to many of our friends based overseas but Great Britain is now one of the most repressive regimes in the world. We operate under the tyranny of political correctness which is just a floppy term for the repressive implementation of one single, dare we say, rather twisted, view of human society, which doesn't allow for dissent or opposition. The regime creates the framework within which they declare views are either acceptable and tolerated or unacceptable and repressed.
It is a framework which defies common sense and is one which even declares that in a court of law, the truth shall be no defence. "
