Cops are sweating this evening after the justice system shot itself in the foot when a court ruled today that police bail is to be restricted to 4 days in length. By my understanding of the situation the police have 4 days to bring a charge, after which they may only take action by re-arresting with fresh evidence - no fresh evidence, no rearrest, no charge.
Politicians and cops alike are expressing their horror to the corporate media as the courts they're usually in cahoots with severely fucked their "operations" up in a ruling that effectively bans long-term periods on bail. Gone, in theory at least, are the years at a time under house arrest, curfew or restricted movement at the cops' say so.
Politicians are already planning appeals and emergency legislation. When the law works for the ruling class, fantastic don't you know. On the very rare occasion it kicks back, who cares we'll just shift the goal posts.
Funny to see the occasional guilt-racked cager break the ranks. By no means something to be applauded or held as exemplary action (in fact this is a move of sheer hypocrisy by the judges concerned). But still a funny day for those who love seeing the cops freak out.
