UK Police | Hand’n’Hand with the ones they arrest

10 01 2011

Police want to get results.  But instead of doing it the old-fashioned way and deterring crime, they infiltrate and encourage it.  From the Diamond Heist in 2000 to the Ecoloon Brigades of today.

A reminder of how intelligent the police were in their successful capture of the Diamond Heist gang, check out the Guardian’s point-by-point timeline.  All I will say is that it was set-up from the word go.  Without Police involvement, there would not have been an attempt.

But I don’t want to bring up the muck of the past, especially one where the officers involved all received big shiny medals for a set-up well done.  Why would I when there is a much recent one to bemoan.

Trial against environmental activists dropped after undercover Met police officer switches sides

A trial against six environmental activists has been suddenly dropped after an undercover police officer switched allegiance and offered to testify on their behalf.

The Ecoloons allege that the UC in their midst not only helped recruit new members but also help plan out the never-materialised crime.

What is worse in all this, PC Mark Kennedy spent nearly a decade, at our expense, shaping this group, and when push finally becomes shove, offers to undo his work.  How many millions was wasted on pursuing this bunch of idealistic persons?  And would they even have gotten so far without the help of the copper?

Alas, so much easier to catch crooks when the Police help plan the crime, I doubt the Thick Blue Line will cease these sting operations.
