    >I find it incredible that there are sites like these that are anti-Police. I'd expect it of some scote of a 'hoodie' or one of our 'bearded brother of beelzebub' friends, but not of sane, law abiding people. The Police have a tough time to protect us and need all the assistance they can get from 'normal' people. I really cannot see the logic in people being afraid of having information about them on a file. Big deal, if by holding everybody's data, they manage to prevent/detect a crime or attrocity then surely it is worth it. The Police, as with the rest of us, are not perfect but we should stand in support of them.

    The police do indeed abide by the law most of the time: that is the law of capitalists and not a moral code. The police as an institute are great to have around when your house gets burgled, but when you’re trying to show the fallacies of a capitalist organisation they seemingly get confused with what’s right and what’s wrong.

    “The Police, as with the rest of us, are not perfect but we should stand in support of them.”

    No, that’s rubbish. We hand over a colossal responsibility to the police every day. For what we’re giving them, we should damned well EXPECT a commitment to perfection! Yes, police are human and make mistakes, but a commitment to perfection means that as soon as you know you’ve made a mistake you ‘fess up and act to ensure it won’t be made again. Not so the police; they routinely cover up, deny and refuse to accept culpability – and as a result the same damned things keep happening, over and over.

    That’d be bad enough. People like you, though, ensure that they get away with it.

    And then there’s the question of their attitude to the public. They say they’re there to guarantee our safety, that they are “serving the community”. Why, then, do they expend so much effort on watching the community? Why is their basic attitude one of “them and us”, with the ordinary man in the street cast in the “them” role? Community policing hasn’t collapsed because the general public went anywhere; it’s collapsed because the police abandoned the community, holed up in cars and stations and started looking at the people they were supposed to be protecting as the enemy.

    And again, people like you seem to think that’s perfectly OK – or at least, you don’t realise that the only people the police are looking after any more is the police. (And toadying to rich and powerful people is a good way of looking after the police, of course, since those rich and powerful people tend to vote themselves more publicly-funded protection.) They have a job to do – well, that’s the problem; someone who sees policing as “just a job” shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near a uniform, because people who see their jobs as “just jobs” tend to be shite at them – uncommitted, timeserving, always on the lookout for a short cut, and terrified of anything or anyone that might expose their incompetence.

    My problem with police? They *are* “ordinary people”. The police should be exceptional people. We have the right to demand and expect that quality. We have the right to expect, for example, that when a policeman comes across a peaceful demonstrator on private property, that the policeman will side with the demonstrator, on the grounds that no crime has been committed and the police are not publicly-funded bailiffs. But how often does that happen? Does it *ever* happen?

    To the first commenter. You are so naive. You have bought into the line that says that increasing state intrusion and infringement of out right to protest is justificable in the name of crime prevention. How ridiculous? The implication is that those who attend political demonstrations are by definition borderline-criminals and that compiling information about them is justified on that basis. Are you such a mindless conformist that you can’t even see what’s wrong with that? It clearly semi-criminalizes those who protest, which is not commensurate with democracy but with an authoritarian state. The vast majority of those photographed have never committed a crime, and assuming that they may in the future, just because they are on a demo, is ludicrous and indefensible. It is state intimidation of those who dissent, pure and simple. Use your brain.

    I think ‘Anonymous’ has missed the point completely, perhaps he/she should watch the video of the founders of Fitwatch being abused and wrongfully arrested/detained by police.

  7. steve snakes says:

    i think ‘anonymous’ should stick to watching corrie and x-factor and leave comment to the big boys!

  8. Ron Broxted says:

    THey are not over endowed with intelligence and lack a moral compass. New Scotland Yard delenda est.

  9. Oliver says:

    I find it strange that ‘Anonymous’ thinks it’s okay for the police to gather photos (and other intelligence) of citizens but it’s not okay for citizens to take photos of the police.

    We are always being told “if you’ve got nothing to hide, you’ve got nothing to worry about” – surely the same applies to the police, doesn’t it?

    If you think it’s acceptable for the police to film/photo citizens to prevent/detect crime, then why would you not think it’s also acceptable for citizens to film police to prevent/detect crime?

    If no one watches the police, who makes sure they are abiding by the law? I can’t think why a police officer would have a problem with Fitwatch, unless they’ve something to hide!

    At plenty of “peaceful” protests, certain individuals have a habit of kicking off, causing injury and damage, or encouraging others to cause injury or damage. FIT Teams keep an eye on these individuals, the way they (the police) keep an eye on any known troublemakers. The reason FITWATCH is set up, is because those troublemakers really don’t like to know that they’re being watched, and they want to cause trouble for those officers who work in FIT duty.

    How about a memorial to all those civillians killed by the police in this country over the last 100 years. It would need to be a pretty big memorial.

    “Community policing hasn’t collapsed because the general public went anywhere; it’s collapsed because the police abandoned the community, holed up in cars and stations and started looking at the people they were supposed to be protecting as the enemy.”

    Very well said indeed. Mind if I ‘borrow’ your words? I’ll attribute them to your nickname. promise. :)

  17. James Newman says:

    Just a site suggestion. It would be great if all the pictures of undercover and FIT officers could be put into it’s own page and placed on the Menu as “Pictures”.

    It seems near impossible to find these spotter cards from the Homepage.

    Keep up the good work. Hope you don’t mind me re-posting the pictures and Spotter cards on my website. I’ll place links back to this site.
