Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats. –H.L. Mencken

So – anything exciting happen to you last night?

Nah, I just chased myself around Sussex all night.

The police state in Great Britain showed off its might, using plain-clothed cops, advanced tracking cameras, and remote operators to track a suspect who was really a plain-clothed cop tracking himself at an operator’s command.  I see several options for the police, all beginning with the same phrase.  “Excuse us for a moment, kind citizens, we will now shovel more of your money into a woodstove 1) invest in further training for our remote operators to ensure this does not happen again. 2.) increase the number of cameras and add an additional supervisor to the remote camera operator’s station in order to ensure this does not happen again. 3.)  add a 10 Million GBP tracking system with beacons for each plainclothes cop that we will cross-reference with our CCTV system to ensure that this will not happen again.”

The best thing about the article is that the remote camera operator saw “someone ‘acting suspiciously'” and “failed to realise that it was actually the plain-clothed officer.”  Who on earth would be surprised that a cop was ‘acting suspiciously’?

Here is the video of the cop.
