Not in the best light

Posted in The Job - General, Videos by 200

I mentioned recently that I have a general interest in the police forces of the world.

A month ago I posted about the fact that Britain was instrumental in arming  & training the police several middle eastern countries and hinted that the intentions of these often repressive countries in gaining input in democratic policing was probably a veneer, especially as the current troubles were bringing the attention of the world on the repressive & brutal tactics of our middle eastern police cousins.

The Telegraph reports that police officers shot two civlians in a ‘drive-by’ shooting. It doesn’t say whether they were injured or killed.

It doesn’t appear to be an isolated incident.
