Cock ups will happen, of course they will

Innocent people were arrested and had their children taken away after police errors meant they were wrongly accused of being paedophiles.

The mistakes emerged in a report by Interception of Communications Commissioner Sir Stanley Burnton who analysed a series of blunders by officers handling phone and internet data.

It mean blameless individuals were arrested, saw their homes and electronic devices searched, and had their children taken into care as a result of serious errors.

What happens next is the important thing.

As our police laddie in London not handing over evidence to the defence shows, what happens next ain’t all peachy either.

  1. Mistakes have always happened. Bunglers have always existed in the police’s ranks. But the present gang of CM and Common Purpose controlled monkey-suited twats have a level of arrogance and sanctimonious belief in their own politicised rightness not present in former times.

    They ARE mistakes waiting to happen. Because the combination of malice and incompetence is a bad one.

  2. Indeed it is, but fortunately the crazed bitch who started it all landed a cushy non-job with Medway Health Authority, which was nice.

  3. To be fair, our brave coppers are good at the important stuff, such as shutting down Facebook meme groups.

  4. What happens next is the important thing.

    “Lessons will be learned”, I imagine. Absolutely nothing else will happen except perhaps a looting of the taxpayer to pay off the victims.

  5. Does anyone check this stuff? I check what I do; my code is subject to reviews by my peers. I thing I do is serious enough to fuck up soneone’s life, so I assume the processes for this are far more rigorous and the participants far more diligent than us, am I right?

  6. Gah, ^^^^ nothing I thing I do is serious enough to fuck up soneone’s life. Fucks sake, completely changed the meaning of the sentence!

  7. We don’t fire enough incompetent civil servants. The rest slowly settle to their level.

    The only way to maintain morale and competence is to show that good behaviour is rewarded and bad behaviour is punished. Instead of promoting whichever New Labour suck up sucks the hardest.

  8. “It mean blameless individuals were arrested, saw their homes and electronic devices searched, and had their children taken into care as a result of serious errors.”

    No, it means a lot more than that. It means they’ve been publicly stigmatised as sexual offenders whilst the accuser remains anonymous. If they’re lucky their families and friends will stick by them, but the likelihood is they won’t even after charges have been dropped. They may well have lost their jobs and at best have a hole in their CV which will be difficult to explain.

    If they’ve been sent to jail and word gets out they’re sex offenders they’ll be luck to get away with a light beating, if they’re unlucky severe GBH and maybe being raped will be added to the punishment.

    If the police continue this assault on the law abiding white middle class citizens in favour of vocal and politically connected groups they’ll wake up one day and wonder what the mob outside the window is doing with that length of rope.

  9. “they’ll wake up one day and wonder what the mob outside the window is doing with that length of rope”: or perhaps less dramatically they’ll wonder why their pensions have been stopped.
