TEN officers break down the door of a secretary with neither previous convictions nor any indicators that arrest might be resisted. Is this a reasonable approach to law enforcement? Or a deliberate attempt to intimidate a whistleblower whose telling of the truth to the media embarrassed a powerful police officer?
Why is it considered OTT to speak of a police state in Britain? Armed police officers killed an unarmed, innocent man with neither reasonable cause to suspect him, nor any reasonable opportunity given for him to surrender peacefully for questioning. The Metropolitan Police lied about it, trying to trash the reputation of the innocent victim in a number of ways. The killers' identities have been concealed and no-one believes they will ever face justice; still less the politicians and senior officers who are equally culpable because of their illegal orders to kill without warning. A public-spirited woman informs the press of police lies and is frightened and bullied (and has her property trashed) by way of vengeance (or is it the famous "summary punishment" promised by the PM?)
How much more will it take before people accept the truth? Britain is already a police state - and the situation is getting worse.
