A lot of police are very nice, honest people, trouble is there are a lot of vindictive in the police as well. Couple that with the previous governments obsession with targets where it's easier to fiddle the figures stitching up the naive innocents rather than going after the real criminals who know how to play the system so as to meet the targets.
Although your other quote:

And before you bleat on further, I've been stopped by police on numerous occasions for taking photographs of buildings in cities.
Anyone else want to play "tabloid catchphrase bingo"? I'm only waiting on "sleepwalking into a surveillance society" and "Orwell's 1984" to get a full house!
In my case some 'little hitler' at work.
But in answer to your question No I do not trust the police.
Examples of the info being leaked are all over Youtube!
Also the police that I know talk about work and things they find a lot.
I bet when they asked to see your photos, you showed them didnt you...
What the hell does it have to do with them? I am not doing anything illegal, yet it seems I am guilty until proven innocent.
If we do not stand out for our rights then our rights will be removed.
It is a difficult line to walk for police and Govt security personnel ... on one side they have a job to do and expect co-operation to allow them to deal with the safety and security of the whole of the public (and yes, with specific named people they put at a higher priority of protection) ... but on the other side they have to keep within their own laws.
I doubt you will ever find a police officer who says they know every single law and act. They know most of the common stuff and will have specific knowledge based on certain roles (eg traffic, firearms, community policing) but in the same way an activist for freedom and human rights will be knowledgable about that aspect of their work, they are unlikely to know about breaches of the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009 ...
Yes, you will find that some police will work on the ignorance of the public to cut through many arguments, similar to the way we will do about having to have people use systems in particular ways. Cue the arguments about the freedom of teachers and learners to use systems as they see fit!
I am not saying it is right, but rather than take an automatically adversarial position which some take ... I prefer a more accommodating approach but followed up with rigorous scrutiny to ensure that any information they have about me is used correctly and fairly, and destroyed in a timely manner. This way, if there is any abuse of the systems, I can highlight it and have sufficient evidence behind the complaint.
This is a shocking news story. I can't believe this guy has been sent to prison with no evidence of any wrong doing?
I'm also very interested in the software he used. Windows or bios passwords wouldn't have worked so what software did he use?
@Zag wouldn't that be obstruction of justice?
