Ever since Peter Sutcliffe's trial, he has received much more publicity in the British media than any other serial killer. Why?

UG#704 - Legal Restrictions as Fictions (The Deep State's Passion for Big Data)

Robin Upton | 28-02-2015 03:10 | Policing | Social Struggles | Terror War | Sheffield | World

This time we hear a pair of talks from 31C3 - the latest Chaos Computer Congress - both by insiders with extensive experience on the subject of mass surveillance. First, NSA expert, James Bamford, on the relationships between the NSA and the big telecom companies. Next we hear Caspar Bowden, on the legal basis for the NSA's mass surveillance program, PRISM. Microsoft summarily dismissed him from his job of 9 years as head of privacy after he raised this issue, and he has spent the last 3 years alerting people to the danger ever since. In essence, he says, the deliberately complex legal regulation of data privacy, which he summarised at the very start of the show - gives Europeans no effective rights against NSA surveillance, whilst affording Americans rights against spying by other nations. Although neither speaker seems to have much idea about the deep state, their talks nevertheless provide useful information.


The Siege of Julian Assange is a Farce

John Pilger | 17-11-2014 10:45 | Policing | Technology | Sheffield | World

Julian Assange

The siege of Knightsbridge is a farce. For two years, an exaggerated, costly police presence around the Ecuadorean embassy in London has served no purpose other than to flaunt the power of the state. Their quarry is an Australian charged with no crime, a refugee from gross injustice whose only security is the room given him by a brave South American country. His true crime is to have initiated a wave of truth-telling in an era of lies, cynicism and war.

Yorkshire Ripper farce - new fake TV documentary

Undercover Police Officers Licensed to Rape and Discredit UK Citizens

Scriptonite Daily | 24-06-2013 08:51 | History | Policing | Repression | Sheffield | World

Mark Kennedy

UK Police forces have despatched undercover agents into peaceful protest movements, where they have engaged in intimate sexual relationships and even had children with the targets of their espionage, while maintaining their cover. They have also been found smearing the families of murder victims and justice campaigners, and undertaken illegal actions to discredit otherwise peaceful movements. Undercover police exist and it seems they are licensed to do just about anything to suppress our ability to dissent.
