How police abused their powers at the Climate Camp

Some of these police ( not all, lets be fair) need a good fucken hiding. In the old days you could get away with it but now they've got cameras galore
Naughty Naughty Mr Black - Showing photographs of police officers, it's a criminal offence under the 2008 Counter Terrorism Act (Section 76).

I would have to agree with Senn, a large proportion of the police need a bloody good hiding!

Let’s face facts; policing has changed dramatically over the past 30 years, although the rot set in during the 1960s with the introduction of Panda Cars. During the early 1980s we saw the police being used as the “boot boys” of the state, during the miners strike, the steel strike and the poll tax riots, in addition to other conflicts such as the numerous inner city riots that took place during this decade. The Government of John Major was a relatively quite time for the police, however the regime (it can’t be called a government) of Messrs Blair and Brown have seen a dramatic increase in police powers and various items of legislature that allows the state to clamp down on it’s citizens, be it the suppression of free speech and protest (eg the G20 protest April this year), although the introduction of ID cards has been shelved; a “national database” is still very much alive and thriving. Stop and Search, specifically under Section 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000. DNA database held by police forces of those who haven’t been convicted of a crime. Mass surveillance of individuals going about lawful activity; we’ve got the highest proportion of CCTV surveillance per head of population of any country of the civilised world.

Are we living in the UK or East Germany under the watchful eye of the Stasi?
