Evidence gathering in action
Just how much evidence do they need?
Here are a couple of pics at closer range.
Well, see link below for police pay scales, then you can work out the cost to the taxpayers of policing peaceful protests and use it to draw the attention of the public who are paying for mobof cops. You might even want to write to your local Chief Constable and local police authority asking how this waste of public money is justified.
eg Constable 3 years service £26,331 per annum divided by 50 (weeks) divided by 40 hours is around £13 an hour.
And that's without the hours of 'briefings' cost of transport, equipment and police staff hours of watching and collating all the hours of video photographs etc, of people going about their lawful democratic right to protest.
Under The Data Protection Act 1998, you have a right to ask the cop taking your picture his/her name and number and where s/he is based so that you can apply to get a copy. Do it and see how shy they become when approached.
Every Camera Plod I have asked about why they are doing it, what happens to the pictures video etc pleads ignorance. The say they don't know and are not interested in the results of all their painstaking work or are too shy to admit what they know about Secret Police work.
