Terror arrests in Manchester and Merseyside

#3
Let's hope they have something good to pin on them so they get remanded to HMP Belmarsh.

Keep the momentum up boys & well done :)

Does anyone want to take a bet that most of them will walk under the Human Rights Act? Still, if the terror charges don't stick we can always do them for putting the wrong type of rubbish in the recycle bin or something.

More to come..... wait out :D

I will be a lot more impressed when they actually secure convictions..
 
#12
How many police does it take to arrest 9 terrorist suspects? 500 Apparently.
Either they were expecting to arrest many more, or it was total overkill.
Good headline though to show action man Reid in a good light

Good point, well made. It's always the same. Huge amounts of tax payers money spent in arresting these people and then some scum lawyer gets them off on some poxy technicality. Can we alt least ensure that, if eligible, they are deported?

Or.... <cynical>

The police are fishing with a net rather than hunting. They turn up at the houses of everyone who's connected with everyone who's connected, (hence 500 cops), and accept that half the houses will be innocent, and that half the people they take down the station will be completely innocent, and that they won't find any proof for half of the guilty ones, and that a chunk of the ones that they think are innocent will be guilty, and vice versa....

So, you see the statistic "500 cops, 9 arrests, 4 (say) end up in court". You could argue that the ambulance chasers have "got 5 of them off", or that they were just separating the sheep from the goats.

I'd find it more interesting of they said something along the lines of "500 cops, 50 properties, 250 people chatted to, 30 people interviewed formally, 9 people reckoned to be "very interesting", 4 of those people reckoned to be genuine players".

even though planning probably started long before Reid came into power in the Home Office..

If it was Manchester and Merseyside, the police probably managed to arrest Bin Thievin, Bin Fightin and Bin Drinkin. I'm sure they're still looking for Bin Workin.

That's Manchestoh and Maazyside to the locals.

A cheaper and quicker way would have been to spread the rumour that the supposed terrorists were about to move into the drugs trade. The local gangs would have it sorted in no time.

I would go on to say I will be more impressed when they get convictions of people who are actually guilty.

Not much chance of finding him can't they just take them to the nearest airport and put them on a flight to Timbucktoo No return
