    ACPO comes under new fire as £1.6m is used on 'perks' for officers

    Britain’s most powerful police body, which is run as a private business, has spent millions of pounds meant for counter-terrorism work on luxury London flats for senior officers. The spending on an undisclosed number of apartments in the Westminster area is understood to be about £1.6million a year. The money is taken directly from taxpayers’ cash given to the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) by the Home Office to tackle the terrorist threat across Britain. The funding – £33million last year – is supposed to be used to beef up regional police forces’ anti-terrorism response and pay for crucial equipment and facilities. Instead, ACPO’s Terrorism & Allied Matters (TAM) committee, headed by Assistant Commissioner John Yates, has used millions of pounds from the budget to pay for flats. Last night ACPO refused to disclose how many apartments it was paying for, or who was receiving the perk, but all are said to be well-appointed homes close to Scotland Yard. ACPO insists they are ‘occupied’, but two well-placed sources told The Mail on Sunday that officers only occasionally stay in them.

    Local estate agents say the cheapest two-bedroom flats in the area cost £400,000 to buy or at least £300 a week to rent. But with the officers requiring a ‘secure location’ the flats are said to cost substantially more. ACPO is already under fire for its commercial activities. Last year The Mail on Sunday disclosed it was:

    * Selling information from the Police National Computer for up to £70 - even though it pays just 60p to access the details.
    * Marketing ‘police approval’ logos to firms selling anti-theft devices.
    * Operating a separate private firm offering training to speed-camera operators, which is run by a senior officer who was banned from driving.

    The news led to questions about ACPO’s central role in policing, writing rules on police operations, as well as campaigning on key issues such as the proposed 90-day detention for terror suspects and the DNA database. ACPO president Sir Hugh Orde has pledged to reform the organisation, admitting its role as a private firm paid millions a year by the taxpayer to effectively run the nation’s police forces was uncomfortable. Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary, the police watchdog, went further, saying its ‘status as a private limited company cannot continue’.

    The new revelations are expected to increase the pressure for the reform or abolition of the organisation. ACPO’s terrorism committee budget is supposed to be separate from the organisation’s other activities. But the revelation it is spending anti-terrorist money on perks for senior officers now puts this part of its work under the spotlight.

    Last night Mr Yates, who headed the cash-for-honours inquiry in 2006, attempted to justify the need for the flats and said they would be sold should they no longer be required. ‘A massive amount of work was instigated post-9/11 to ensure that the UK had a national structure in place to tackle terrorism. This work required a vast amount of resources to ensure that a national counter-terrorism strategy was put in place.

    As a result, staff seconded to ACPO TAM were entitled to accommodation while working in London. This structure is now in place and as a result a review has been conducted of ACPO TAM, including the requirements for staff accommodation. ‘All the properties for seconded staff are occupied and leases would be relinquished at the earliest opportunity if a property became vacant.’ But privately Yates is understood to be horrified anti-terrorist cash has been used in this way.

    He has ordered an internal review to examine how the counter-terrorism money is being spent to ensure that ‘resources are used more cost effectively’ in future. Sources say the accommodation issue is a high priority and future secondees to the body will have to make alternative housing arrangements when they are required in London. One senior police source said: ‘The flats are all over Westminster, like an address book for the well-heeled. They are empty most of the time because there is no need to use them.

    ‘No politician will ever say this but the terrorism budget is over-stuffed. Every year they have a huge under-spend which they lavish on things that are not needed. These flats were bought out of this under-spend.’ Patrick Mercer, a former Tory Homeland Security spokesman, said: ‘Every penny allocated to counter-terrorism is precious. It therefore disappoints me taxpayers’ money is being used in this way.’

  • COPS IN FLAP AS HOMOSEXUAL FLAGS FLY AT POLICE STATIONS

    A FLAG showing police support for the gay community has sparked a row.

    Some city-based officers have said they are unhappy at the appearance of the rainbow flag above Swansea Central Police Station, along with the base in Townhill. They said a Welsh flag would be more representative of the people working for South Wales Police and that even a force flag would be more appropriate. But a spokeswoman for South Wales Police defended the decision to fly the flag at some of its buildings and said it had done so to support Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender History month.

    The Rainbow Flag will also be flown at the Bridgend headquarters site, along with Neath police station. But a Swansea police officer said that even homosexuals working in the force were against the decision to fly the flag. He said: "There is not even a Welsh flag up but all police stations are being told they have to put up the gay flag. "I have seen it at Townhill Police Station and also at Swansea Central Police Station.

    "I have nothing against homosexuals but a lot of people have kicked off about it. "I spoke to my gay colleague as to how he feels about the flag and even he's opposed to it." He added: "There's no Welsh flag or South Wales Police flag — it's all about political correctness. There are more Welsh people working for South Wales Police than gays — why do they feel the need to have the flag up?"

    But South Wales Police communities and partnerships Superintendent Liane Bartlett added: "The flags are a sign of our commitment to supporting the rights of every individual and our commitment to supporting our LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender) communities. "Our force's aim is for the people of South Wales to live in an environment that is open and welcoming, and free from discrimination. The flags symbolise our pledge to our communities that we will tackle all crime, including any homophobic hate crime, and would encourage residents to report issues to us. "South Wales Police has specialist staff in its Minorities Support Unit to deal with this type of crime and has dedicated Hate Crime Police Officers in Cardiff, Swansea, Rhondda Cynon Taff and Merthyr Tydfil, Bridgend, Vale of Glamorgan and Neath and Port Talbot divisions who provide ongoing support to victims."

    She said if officers had any concerns they were more than welcome to raise them. "Alongside the Assembly and other Welsh forces we have worked in partnership with charity Safer Wales to develop and launch a confidential hate crime self-reporting initiative online at www.saferwales.com, where members of the public can report hate crime confidentially and anonymously," she added. "The flag is a symbol of inclusiveness. If officers or staff do have any concerns we would provide an opportunity to air views in relation to the subject as part of the force's commitment to diversity and equal opportunities."

  • I TOOK ON BULLY COP... NOW I LIVE IN FEAR

    ali dizaei THEY ARE ALL LIKE THIS EXCEPT THIS ONE WAS BROUGHT DOWN BECAUSE HE WAS HEAD OF THE BLACK COP ASSOCIATION.

    Man that UK's most corrupt police chief Ali Dizaei tried to frame tells his story .
    THE brave informant who finally toppled Britain's most corrupt cop today tells his own incredible story of monster Ali Dizaei's chilling mafia-style regime. Humble website designer Waad Al Bagdhdadi, 24, refused to be bullied by the bent Scotland Yard commander. Now, with Dizaei jailed for four years, he reveals astonishing details of the shamed officer's life of luxury funded by his grip on a terrified community. "Ali Dizaei was like the Godfather of the Iranian Community," said Waad. "They used to call him The Boss.

    "He set up 'office' in the middle of a restaurant where he'd carry out business meetings with his dodgy friends. "He ate for free, he drank for free. In his world, he didn't pay for anything. But I wasn't going to let him get me for free." The two men fell out after Waad - who fled Iraq at 17 to escape the tyranny of Saddam Hussein - asked for payment for setting up Dizaei's personal website. Instead of coughing up the swaggering cop tried to frame Waad for attacking him. Innocent Waad was infuriated, pursued a complaint and finally brought the monster down. But, even with his enemy behind bars, Waad sees himself a marked man.

    "I did what I had to do but I too have lost my freedom," he said. "I'm always looking over my shoulder. When I left Iraq I had no idea I was going from one dictator to fall into the hands of another. "I'd heard about Dizaei before I met him. He was famous in the Middle Eastern community. They called him London's top officer. They said he was f***ing the English, the only one they couldn't take down, 'untouchable'. "He was acting like the movie gangster Tony Montana in Scarface.

    "The first time I saw him was in a restaurant. It was like a celebrity had walked in. People were pushing past each other, trying to speak to him and shake his hand. It was lunchtime and he was wearing his police uniform. "He was cheap, arrogant and brash - talking loudly on his phone so everyone could hear him. He wanted people to know he was important. "He always had the best table, right in the middle where he could meet and greet everyone. If a person had problems with immigration he'd help fill out passport applications. He'd have a lawyer there and they'd openly hold these dodgy meetings like gangsters." Waad watched as Dizaei was lavished with freebies, defying the laws he was paid to uphold. "He used to drink whisky," said Waad. "On several occasions I saw him drink then brazenly get in his car and drive off. He surrounded himself with important people and beautiful girls. He was just a crook in uniform.

    "And he loved the belly dancers. He never paid for his meals but he used to tuck £50 notes into the girls' underwear. He wanted everyone to see him flashing his money." Waad and Dizaei first got to know each other 2½ years ago when the cocky cop wanted a personal website to publicise himself. As he wolfed down a kebab he outlined his requirements to a stunned Waad, who recalled: "Dizaei showed me pictures he wanted to use. They were professionally taken of him posing in his uniform, looking at the camera over his shoulder. I asked him, 'Do you think you're a celebrity or what?' "I found it very odd. I said, 'Listen you're not David Beckham, you know.' I was sort of joking but trying to tell him these poses didn't look right for a police officer. He then showed me pictures of his wife Shy he wanted on the site. I couldn't believe it. She was in a sexy pose, dressed like a schoolgirl, her blouse open and cleavage on show, wearing a policeman's hat. It was totally inappropriate and I told him. He finally agreed on a more modest picture." Waad spent more than 100 hours building the site. But when he asked for his £600 fee in July, 2008, trouble started. Dizaei was used to making demands, not receiving them. After the failed attempt to frame Waad - including 23 hours in custody - the young whistleblower faced extraordinary intimidation in the run-up to Dizaei's trial for perverting justice and misconduct in public office.

    He told us: "About a month after I made the complaint I was asked by someone connected to Dizaei if money could 'change my mind'. "I got another visit from one leading member of the community who told me there were people who wanted me dead. He advised me to leave the country. Another offered me £250,000 to manage a restaurant. Then beautiful women started to visit my coffee shop. They'd come on to me and try to seduce me. They were gorgeous girls who simply wouldn't normally be interested in an ordinary guy like me. I suspected they were prostitutes. "They were offering me sex and telling me we could do cocaine. I thought they were trying to lure me into some seedy drugs den where they'd take pictures of me to bring me down. "It became obvious they were trying to set me up. I had to keep my control and resist these women. "I was also being followed. Cars with Middle Eastern men would trail me from work and wait outside my house." On one occasion, the home of Waad's girlfriend was ransacked but nothing taken.

    Waad suspects it was a warning, for daring to threaten destruction of Dizaei's rotten empire. An empire built on wielding three weapons - fear, the race card and a uniform. For years Dizaei's bosses were convinced he was corrupt but had failed to nail him, as he used the race issue to dodge exposure - although Waad insisted: "Dizaei was the racist. The way he spoke about white people was totally racist. He looked down on them." During Operation Helios, the ill-fated probe into Dizaei's life and integrity, surveillance officers tailed him to dozens of meetings. Police also gathered statements from people who claimed they had paid Dizaei money for advice on their claims to stay in Britain. And he was caught associating with a conman and four major criminals.

    But, despite the evidence, Dizaei not only survived he got an apology AND promotion. In the end it took the courage - and two-year ordeal - of Waad to bring him to book. Last night he said: "I was just the little man, not the big police officer, but I told the truth. I never lied and justice was done."

  • COPS ARREST 84 YR OLD PENSIONER AFTER CONTINUOUS HARASSMENT FROM YOBS

    graham powell

    AS EVER THE BRITISH MASONIC COP MAFIA ENSURE THEY CONVICT THE INNOCENT WHILE PROTECTING CRIMINALS.

    THE former leader of Gwent county council said yesterday he had been arrested after allegedly striking a teenage boy with his walking-stick. Graham Powell, 84, who was involved in local politics for 58 years, said he was arrested on December 22 by police after the alleged incident at his home in Sandy Lane, Caldicot. He has since been released on police bail until February 17 while officers make further inquiries, but Mr Powell, who was leader of Gwent county council between 1981 and 1991, told the Argus yesterday he had not done anything wrong.

    Gwent Police said yesterday they could not confirm if Mr Powell had been arrested. Mr Powell, who also led Monmouthshire council between 1991 and 1994, says he was arrested following an incident on December 21 when it is alleged the veteran politician struck a teenage boy on the arm with his walking-stick after trying to intervene in an incident between his wife Sybil, 74, and the teenager. The boy is later thought to have been taken to hospital to be treated for injuries to his arm. Mr Powell said he was arrested and questioned by police the following day.

    He has not yet been charged with any offence, but said he would deny any charges which may be brought. The Argus reported in November last year that the couple were considering leaving the ground-floor flat where they have lived for the last 31 years because of what they said was a catalogue of anti-social behaviour. Mr Powell claims that over the last four months a group of around six youths between the ages of 11 and 15 have subjected him and his wife to weekly verbal abuse, smashing the rear headlights of his car, smearing the vehicle with tomato ketchup and flour, and throwing eggs at their back door.

    In one of the incidents, he claims youths locked his wife inside their garage as she put away her car. The garage door could not be opened from the inside, and Mr Powell says he had to free his wife after he heard her shouts.

    Two days later, youths also shut Mrs Powell inside an outdoor bin shed, he claims. Mr Powell, who retired from local politics in 2004, said: “I have lived here for 31 years and I have never had any treatment like this. We try to treat other people in a proper manner. My wife and I are both anxious that it has got to stop.”

    WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Because every arm of the system that keeps them in power is as corrupt as the whole. Masons have been deliberately infiltrated into the police to such a degree that it is now the MAIN arm of the masons who are dominating wealth and power in the UK with the blessing of the British Royal family as patrons and who head this evil system of control . They remain only in that privileged position because all key positions of power are held by masonic lackeys.

    For anyone who has yet to experience Crown persecution they will, in time, be dragged into the most corrupt part of this system, the civil courts across the UK, that are thieving victims livelihoods in the biggest transfer of wealth Britain has ever seen. The UK's masonic cops have been party to the VAST theft of properties aiding and abetting bailiffs who with dodgy warrants signed by corrupt masonic judges steal land and property on a GRAND SCALE. A small self appointed legal mafia responsible for more crimes than ALL other crimes put together. Any small time criminal may be able to steal your TV or video but only the crooks that work for the crown can remove you from your home in the most evil system of law and order across the globe and makes Mugabe's land theft pale by comparison.

    They then share the spoils of that theft from the top down starting with the British royal family who hand pick the judicial mobsters that do their bidding and ensure the Crown and its myriad of masonic hangers on live off the spoils of their victims hard earned assets like vultures stripping the last piece of meat from a carcass. When you read the British newspapers and watch British TV the facade they create ensures this vast transfer of wealth into the masonic/ royalist coffers goes on unreported but for their victims who now, thanks to the internet, have a platform to inform the unsuspecting public of their own demise should they find themselves in the same hallowed walls of the civil courts where Hitlers spirit is alive and well . At least when the Gestapo were carrying out their reign of terror across the globe we got reports about it , but the complicit media have been assisting the censorship of this sinister and creepy network of masonic theft by its lackeys and remains undetected due to the smokescreen of respectability they have built up using their corporate media buddies who are all part of the same satanic network of control.

    Victims who stand up to this mob of gangsters face endless persecution from the masonic mafia who will do anything to ensure they remove every last piece of value from you, once you become a target, and that can happen by simply breaking up with your spouse or partner and then the whole system kicks in big time to ensure you will be left homeless , penniless and childless thanks to the utter greed of thugs who have been getting away with murder for far to long.

    A GROWING BODY OF VICTIMS WILL ENSURE THAT SYSTEMS DEMISE THAT WE HAVE NEVER HAD ANY DOUBTS ABOUT.

    durham cops Two policemen have admitted their involvement in the selling of guns handed in to police by the public to be destroyed.

    PC Maurice Allen, 47, and PC Damien Cobain, 42, pleaded guilty to misconduct in a public office, during a brief hearing at Newcastle Crown Court. Both are firearms licensing officers with Durham Police and were arrested during an investigation launched in February last year. It followed information which came to light during inquiries into a burglary at a farmhouse in north Durham.

    One of the items stolen in the raid was a rifle, which the owner said he had bought from the police. The seven month investigation, supervised by the Independent Police Complaints Commission, examined claims that weapons handed in by the public for safe disposal were then sold on.

    PC Allen, from Houghton-le-Spring, Wearside, who has nearly 29 years’ service, also faces 16 charges of theft relating to various firearms and no pleas were entered. He and PC Cobain, who has eight years’ service, were granted unconditional bail to appear at the same court on Feb 26. Police have said that all the firerarms had been accounted for and there was nothing to suggest that any of the weapons had been used in criminal activity.

  • The Dazer Laser comes in two handheld models, the Defender and the Guardian, which can be mounted on a rifle or a shotgun, the company said. The Defender emits an eye-safe green beam with a diameter of 0.2 m to 2.5 m (about 1 to 8 ft) into what the company calls the Dazer Zone, the range of which can adjust from as close as 1 m to the target to up to 2400 m away, or nearly a mile and a half.

    The beam, when shined in the face of a perceived aggressor, temporarily blinds him, impairs his balance and induces motion sickness that lasts for several hours, making it difficult to move, according to company publications. It can control people even when their eyes are closed. The Guardian operates with a smaller-diameter beam and a shorter range of up to 100 m, or about 328 ft. Potential applications for the lasers include homeland security, prison security and crowd control in riots, the company said. Both models can operate also in nondaze mode as searchlights.

    ON THE JOB ON THE SQUARE

    mason cop In the courtroom of honor, the judge pounded his gavel To show that all's equal and that the courts are on the level - Bob Dylan

    It seems to me much of the speculation concerning the Stockwell atrocity still plays a version of Blame the Victim: What did Jean Charles de Menezes know that made him a target? Who did he know? If he wasn't a terrorist, what else was he that would provoke plainclothed Special Forces to restrain him and pump seven bullets in the back of his head? Sometimes - often - it's in that direction the truth lies. (Poor Nick Berg, for instance, didn't simply get unlucky.) But I don't think so this time. This wasn't a hit to take out a Brazilian contract engineer. If it were, I imagine it would have been done either much more quietly, or with the foresight to plant damning evidence in his flat. The very bloody and public murder seems a demonstration, but of what, and to whom? If there were a motive - if it wasn't just a bizarre sequence of tragic events (and anyone who's lived long enough should concede that such things happen, too) - then it has nothing to do with the unfortunate de Menezes. It must reside elsewhere, in a place that may seem to us like madness.

    This is a British story, and Britain is a land that hasn't forgotten how weird it is. Drive a modern highway in southern England for any distance and you'll pass standing stones, ancient mounds, chalk figures and crop circles. More so than in the so-called "New World," secularism seems like a thin and flaking coat of paint slopped on some very old and strange things. This extends to crime stories, as elements of the occult often arise on British police blotters, but they just as often fade away, without resolution. I think of The Guardian headline from last June, Children trafficked into Britain for sacrifice rituals; a BBC story from January, 2005: Dead sheep found in "occult star" ("the sheep were found on Sampford Spiney on Dartmoor with their necks broken and their bodies in a pattern sometimes associated with the occult"); and from last July: Occult link to drowned councillor. ("Detectives investigating the death of a Cornish parish councillor have confirmed they are looking at possible links with the occult. They believe 56-year-old Peter Solheim, from Carnkie, was interested in black magic.") In 1996, a young environmentalist named Nicholas Gargari plunged screaming to his death from a cliff in the East Sussex town of Lewes. The walls of his home were found papered with torn Bible pages, and scrawled upon them was the message "God help me I have been cursed." (Though reputedly not in Gargari's hand.) Detectives learned from his friends that, shortly before his death, he had received a "cow's heart pierced with nails and a fetish entwined with a lock of human hair." Suspicion fell upon Gargari's unlikely friendship with a Satanic fascist named Alex Smith, who "attended the inquest and sat grinning at the bereaved sister and mother, displaying his inverted cross tattoos,and protected by a burly looking body guard." Under cross examination regarding his Far Right ties, Smith became verbally abusive, and needed to be physically ejected from the courtroom. Gargari's death could not be ruled either a murder or a suicide, and the Coroner recorded an open verdict.

    In the same town of Lewes, six years earlier, a local scandal of sorts broke when it was revealed that a Satanist named Rosemary Barratt worked as a secretary inside Lewes Police Intelligence Unit. Barratt "had long fostered a deep interest in severe sado-masochistic sex, having relations with literally dozens of magical masters," seeking painful degradation while possessed by a spirit named "Absolon." Local Wiccan sources alleged that two police officers were members of a dangerous Satanic group conducting rituals atop limestone cliffs. The Chief Constable for Sussex, Paul Whitehouse, "refused to state whether he personally knew of Satanists inside his force, though he "did point out that it was not an offence to be a member of this type of organisation." But before we go too far down that road, we should take a step back and examine another legal occult organization, because it's hard to talk seriously about the British police force without talking about Freemasonry. Unfortunately, for many people, it's hard to talk seriously about Freemasonry at all. In his Inside the Brotherhood, Martin Short details the story of Chief Inspector Brian Woollard, whose distinguished career included 14-years with Special Branch attached to the Bomb Squad, royal protection, and armed personal detective to Home Secretary Roy Jenkins. Woollard's career effectively ended when he was posted to London's Fraud Squad. As Short writes, "it was there that he first sensed the power which Freemasonry seems to have over law enforcement in London."

    Assigned to commercial fraud, Woollard was assigned a sensitive inquiry which involved tape recorded conversations describing police officers do favours for fellow Freemasons. Handing Woollard the case, his supervisor, whom Short calls "Grimm," said "I don't know which lodge you're in." When Woollard replied he belonged to no lodge, Grimm appeared surprised, and told him to complete the task in a week. The recordings showed evidence of blackmail, and Woollard sent the tapes off for forensic testing. Grimm was apoplectic that the names of "innocent policeman" might be produced in court, and subjected Woollard to the tightest scrutiny of his career. Soon there was so much distrust the two officers could no longer work together, and Woollard moved to another section of the Fraud Branch. (Months later, he heard the case he left in Grimm's hands was closed with a decision of "no further action.") He was handed a case of public sector corruption involving inflated payments to building contractors, and soon found his work obstructed by police officers in his own department who belonged to the same lodge as subjects of his investigation in the building works department. Woollard persisted until he was moved right out of the Fraud Branch, and was replaced on the corruption case by a Freemason. He was ordered by a Masonic supervisor to have a psychiatric evaluation regarding his delusion at seeing Masons everywhere. He was demoted to uniform, even though he hadn't had one for 20 years, and assigned to a station where all five officers above him in the chain of command were Freemasons. When some newspapers picked up the story of his humiliation by the Masonic fraternity, Woollard found his case files disappearing from a locked administrative room overnight. One long-serving, sympathetic constable reported that "everyone knew the theft was part of a Masonic plot to discredit Woollard."

    Masonic plot. There are two words to get you laughed right out of the respectable Left, Right or Middle. But as it often goes with things many people find hilarious, when you peel away the ridiculous crust, there's not a great deal to laugh about. In The Arcana of Freemasonry, Albert Churchward writes that "Freemasonry in all its degrees, from the first to the thirty-third, is the old Eschatology of the Egyptians - or the doctrine of final things": The casual brother does not trouble his head about these things; the majority look upon Freemasonry merely as a sort of Brotherhood for social intercourse and charity. Up to a certain point these views are correct.... But there is a higher view. Freemasonry means much more than this. In Freemasonry we have many mysteries, handed down to us from remote ages.... This knowledge can be obtained only in one way, and that is by mastering the old writings of the Egyptians and the glyphs of the Stellar Mythos people...because by that, and that alone, can the origin and meaning of all that is attached to the term "Brotherhood of Freemasonry" be found.

    The corruption and compromises Brian Woollard discovered could be said to be those of the "casual brothers." Petty crimes, unconcerned with Set and Horus and the doctrine of final things. But speculative Freemasonry is the core of the Craft, and its infusion of all layers of British authority presents opportunities for a different order of criminal behaviour. In its investigation of David Myatt and the occult-fascist axis, the magazine Searchlight quotes a bulletin from Combat 18 which attempts to disavoy the encroachment of Satanists upon British neo-Nazism. "The Fuhrer would turn over in his grave," it reads. "Satanists are dirty scum who use this bullshit as a front for child molestation." The bulletin also called for the boycott of another Satanic fascist and Myatt associate, Stephen Cox, "alleging that he peddles illegal child porn movies."

    Searchlight continues:

    Cox, a close political ally of Myatt, runs the fraternity of Balder, another Satanist group, formed in 1990. Like the Order of Nine Angles, the Fraternity of Balder is dedicated to Aryan living and offers physical and mental training alongside an extensive political and Satanist library. During the 1980s Myatt lived alongside Myatt in Church Sutton and worked as a teacher. Balder, which emphasizes male-bonding rituals, is the public face of Cox's Satanism. A more secret and sinister organisation is the Fraternitas Loki.... According to its own propaganda: the new order succeeding Ragnarok will not arrive without intervention of the Dark Twin: the ambivalent, bisexual, resourceful, daring and handsome Loki." Its literature reveals the underground nature of its activities. "Unlike other matters in Balder the Fraternitas Loki is quite covert as was the case with the original Black Order of the closing years of WW2 and the esoteric war of post 1945 - a subterranean reality and unknown to all but a few.

    Cox's portal to his more respectable front, the Arktion Federation, can be found here. The home page contains the "Important Notice" that, "although our work is concerned solely with European spirituality and heritage," Arktion is neither political nor racist. "If you read or hear of anything by an individual or group contradicting these facts please do not worry: it is merely an infantile and malicious lie by sad and sick minds. We pray they may recover from their illness and see the light of truth and human fellowship." A link to the Fraternity of Balder - called the "Jarls of Baelder" - and information pertainting to the Fraternitas Loki is on the top menu. Most interesting is Cox's lengthy biography. Along with "teacher," "author" and "philosopher," is listed "Freemason." And quite an accomplished Freemason he is:

    On the Summer Solstice of 1991 he was initiated into British Freemasonry in his Mother Lodge within the Masonic Province of Berkshire in the United Grand Lodge of England. Since then he has worked his way through the various officerships of the lodge to rise to have the honour to become the Worshipful Master of his Lodge in 1999-2000 (which is always a one year appointment in any lodge). In year 2000-2001 he served his Lodge as the Immediate Past Master. And then in 2001-2002, and again in 2002-2003 and for the 3rd., year 2003-2004 was appointed its Assistant Director of Ceremomies (a monthly duty), and its Preceptor of the Class of Instruction (a twice monthly duty). He has written and delivered to the Class a number of unique lecture papers on the symbolism, mysteries, history and spiritual philosophy of different aspects of the three degrees of Craft Masonry with regards to the Emulation Ritual. He has also written a book of guidance for Stewards and newly raised Master Masons. He offers private tuition and meetings for officers of the Lodge to assist them in their progress and for newly made Masons and Stewards. Free tours of the Berskhire Masonic Centre and its lodge rooms and temple, with an introduction to Freemasonry, its history and symbolism are given by him to his students and friends from around Europe. In October 2003 he was elected by the Lodge members to be Master Elect to serve as Worshipful Master of his lodge for a 2nd. time (for the year 2004-2005).

    This suggests the hypothetical situation of a Masonic policeman being asked to investigate his own lodge's Satanic "Worshipful Master." The Order of Nine Angles' A Gift for the Prince states that "human sacrifice is powerful magick": The ritual death of an individual does two things: it releases energy (which can be directed, or stored - for example in a crystal) and it draws down dark forces or "entities." Such forces may then be used, by directing them toward a specific goal, or they may be allowed to disperse over the Earth in a natural way, such dispersal altering what is sometimes known as the "astral shell" around the Earth. This alteration, by the nature of sacrifice, is disruptive - that it, it tends toward Chaos. This is simply another way of saying that human sacrifice furthers the work of Satan.

    There are three methods of conducting an involuntary sacrifice: 1. by magickal means (e.g. the Death Ritual); 2. by some person or persons directly killing the sacrifice(s); 3. by assassination. I haven't forgotten Jean Charles de Menezes. Nor that a motive to his killing, if there is one, most probably resides in a place that would seem to us like madness. What we see in British Freemasonry is an occult organization with a political inclination towards the Right and even Far Right, with deep roots in both the Satanic and the law and order fraternities. One has the motive, the other has the means.

    Perhaps sometimes, the occult elite's horrification of their dumb, useless eaters doesn't require the elegance of programmed assassins and useful idiots. Perhaps sometimes, it's as simple as walking up to a man and shooting him seven times in the head. Because random acts of violence are now public policy. And what energies are released by that? Which dark entities are drawn down? Sometimes, all it takes is a handshake.

  • MET COPS WERE (AND STILL ARE) DYSFUNCTIONAL

    met The chief of the Metropolitan Police has said parts of the force were "dysfunctional" before he took over a year ago. Sir Paul Stephenson blamed infighting between senior officers.

    He also said there had been a lack of progress in tackling organised crime across police borders since he took charge at Scotland Yard. Sir Paul's comments came on BBC Radio 4's Today programme in his first major radio interview since his appointment. But he said the Met was a "happier" force than it was before.

    Lower profile

    There was a level of dysfunctionality over a period at the senior level - and I'm not making accusations against individuals - that's in our past
    Sir Paul Stephenson

    BBC home affairs correspondent Danny Shaw says when Sir Paul took up his post he said he did not want to be a "celebrity". The remark was widely interpreted to be a reference to his predecessor Sir Ian Blair, who was seldom out of the headlines. The low point of Sir Ian's tenure came when his most senior Asian officer, Assistant Commissioner Tarique Ghaffur, publicly alleged Sir Ian had discriminated against him - a claim he later withdrew.

    Sir Paul told the Today programme: "There was a level of dysfunctionality over a period at the senior level - and I'm not making accusations against individuals - that's in our past." Our correspondent says the new commissioner has kept a lower profile than Sir Ian and steered clear of giving views on policing policy. But Sir Paul re-stated his belief that unless some police forces merged they would continue to lack the "capability" to tackle serious organised crime.

    Photo dispute

    Sir Paul also told the programme he did not want tourists and other members of the public stopped and questioned for taking photographs of London landmarks. There is a growing dispute about the way anti-terrorism powers are used to question people photographing high-profile sites. Police have released video footage taken by a man they believe was scouting for a terrorist attack, and who has since been found guilty of a criminal offence and deported. But Sir Paul admitted the powers had to be used with care.

    "We need to recognise that London is an iconic city and people come here to photograph this city and they should be allowed to do it without interference unless there is very, very good reason to suspect somebody doing something wrong," he said. "Occasionally, some police officers might get it wrong, PCSOs [Police Community Support Officers] might get it wrong, it's my job to ensure we get that right balance."

    Cop Went Wild With Taser, Diabetic Says

    (CN) - A suburban Chicago police officer Tasered a man 11 times while he was having a diabetic seizure, and the 56 seconds of needlessly inflicted electric shock, "inflicted ... while he was lying unresponsive on the floor of his bedroom, permanently scarred [him] and caused him neurological damage that has not abated," the man claims in Chicago Federal Court. Prospero Lassi says he suffered a diabetes-induced seizure at home on April 9. His roommate called 911, and police from LaGrange Park and Brookfield responded, with EMTs from LaGrange Park. Lassi says his roommate explained to police that he was having a diabetic seizure. Lassi "was not alert and could not move his body."

    When the EMTs asked the cops to help them move Lassi from where he was lying on the floor, Lassi says, one of his "arms flailed during his diabetes-induced seizure, striking one of the LaGrange and Brookfield defendants. At no time did Mr. Lassi intentionally strike or offensively touch any of the LaGrange or Brookfield defendants." Lassi says LaGrange Park Officer Darren Pedota responded by Tasering him 11 times, for nearly a minute, as he lay helpless. He was hospitalized for 5 days, and was unable to work for 3 months because of the attack, "and his quality of life has suffered substantially," Lassi says. "At no time did Mr. Lassi do anything to warrant the use of force against him. Mr. Lassi was never cited, arrested, or charged with any crime," according to the complaint. He seeks punitive damages for battery, excessive force, and failure to intervene.

  • £107 MILLION TO PAY FOR LONDON'S MASONIC COPS TO TRAVEL FREE

    met cops £107M BILL FOR POLICE RAIL TRAVEL

    Taxpayers have paid £107 million to give London's police officers free rail travel for the next five years. More than 34,000 Metropolitan Police and City of London officers enjoy free travel on trains up to 70 miles from the capital.

    Officers show their warrant card to ticket inspectors to obtain free travel, even when off duty. The two forces have negotiated a new deal with train companies after facing pressure from Government to review its rising cost. It came after they were forced to pay a premium price of £24 million for a one-year extension to the perk in the last financial year. The cost first spiralled in 2006 when HM Revenue and Customs reversed an earlier decision and said free travel was taxable.

    Officials faced an £8 million annual tax bill but reduced this by paying a higher sum to the Association of Train Operating Companies (Atoc). Free travel for officers was introduced on the Tube and buses in London in the early 1970s and it was extended to overground trains in 2002. Senior officers believe it helps to recruit and retain officers who live outside London while cutting crime on the railways. The Metropolitan Police Authority (MPA) declined to discuss the cost of the contract because officials said it is commercially sensitive.

    In response to a Freedom of Information inquiry, an official said disclosing the £107 million cost could affect future negotiations and police "strategic plans". A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "The Atoc agreement, negotiated in partnership with the MPA, allows Met officers to travel standard class on trains within a 70 mile radius of central London. We recently renewed the agreement, for a cost-effective five year contract. Making our communities safer is our priority, the latest research suggests that passengers feel reassured and there are regular interventions by our officers on the trains, both on and off duty."

  • COSTA DEL COPS SLAMMED FOR BUYING SPANISH VILLA

    Costa Del cops slammed for buying Spanish villa

    WEST Midlands Police Federation is under fire for using its funds to buy a villa on the Costa Del Sol. The union, which represents rank and file officers, has been attacked by one of its members who claims the money should have been put to better use – on the National Police Memorial or Help for Heroes. And there are concerns about the federation’s decision to buy a property in an area of Spain renowned for being a favoured destination for crooks on the run.

    The concerned cop, who does not wish to be named said: “I cannot believe the federation, nationally, is on its knees, and on the quiet, West Midlands is buying a villa. “How dare it vote on such a thing. It should poll the whole force.

    “I am certain the cops would rather the money went to the National Police Memorial or Help for Heroes.” The Costa del Sol has been dubbed the Costa del Crime and has become a haven for fugitives suspected of murder, armed robbery, drug smuggling and other offences over the last 30 years. It was famously depicted in the multi-award winning thriller Sexy Beast starring Ray Winstone as ex-con and expert safe-cracker Gary “Gal” Dove. and Ben Kingsley.

    The federation’s joint branch board voted to buy the property, for an undisclosed price, in October but has yet to decide whether it will be made available to officers in the force to use. Federation chairman Andy Gilbert stressed the money used for the purchase did not come from members’ subscriptions. Last night he angrily rejected claims that the move was inappropriate, and strongly defended the federation’s decision to buy the villa.

    He said: “The money used to buy the villa did not come from members’ subscriptions, it came from the business side of the federation, which makes its money through group insurance schemes and things like that. “This is not a secret decision, it is all laid out in our minutes which were sent to federation representatives. “This is a sound capital investment. As for who will use it, that has not been decided.

    “Unfortunately we cannot just stuff our money into a wardrobe and hope for the best. We need to invest it. “We have only had one single complaint on this issue and it is absolute nonsense. “We probably would have been criticised if we had not made the investment. “This is just someone being mischievous, the type of person who is always complaining that the reps are always off on jollies or stuffing their face at free buffets.”

  • THE NIGHTMARE OF LIVING NEXT DOOR TO A MASON AND COP IN ANY DISPUTE

    simon folkes A senior cop who fell out with his one armed neighbour in a dispute over parking arranged for him to be pulled over and arrested - so he would lose his driving licence, it emerged today.

    Sergeant Ray Jones, 45, became locked in a bitter feud with disabled father-of-two Simon Folkes, 53, over parking access outside their homes. Sgt Jones, of Devon and Cornwall police, had previously allowed next door neighbour Simon to leave his car on his driveway. But when the officer told him he was no longer allowed to park there they began a three-year feud with a series of arguments about access.

    Jones then tried to ensure his neighbour would be left without a car by instructing officers to pull him over and quiz him about his licence and insurance. He informed his colleagues where and when Simon would likely be driving and told police to flag him down, a report found. The officers accused him of not being properly insured and Simon was even ordered to take an assessment to prove his driving ability - which he passed.

    But a month later officers then arrived at Simon's home to arrest him for allegedly vandalising Sgt Jones' front gate - but the charges were dropped. Simon knew the details could only have come from his neighbour and he made an official compliant to the police body the Professional Standards Department (PSD). They found Sgt Jones had 'meddled in the private lives of his neighbours' and 'brought Devon and Cornwall Constabulary into disrepute'.

    He has now been disciplined by the force and builder Simon, who lost his arm in a motorcycle accident in 1974, says he 'abused his power'. Simon said: 'Ray owns the driveway but we had a gentleman's agreement that I could park there on one side. 'Then one day he came home and just went mad. He stood nose to nose with me and was just screaming at me - really nasty stuff.

    'It has been a nightmare ever since. He is like any other nuisance neighbour just with the added problem that he is a police sergeant. 'I was pulled over completely unnecessarily and I have even been arrested for something that had nothing to do with me. 'I just wanted to be left in peace. My car was my freedom and he tried to take it away from me.

    'He didn't want me to park outside his house so tried to get my licence taken away to solve that problem for him.' The pair fell out over the driveway in 2006 and Simon, of St Austell, Cornwall, was pulled over in May 2007 as he made his way to a Smart car convention. Officers asked him if he had the correct licence and insurance for his disability and then informed the DVLA that they suspected he was driving illegally.

    Simon said: 'I just noticed the police car parked up and as I passed it started following me and pulled me over. 'I was very suspicious because they seemed to have a lot of information about me and my disability.' Simon then passed a DVLA course and was then arrested for allegedly damaging Sgt Jones' gate but the charges were dropped. The report by the Professional Standards Department found Jones had 'inappropriately interfered' in his pursuit of his neighbour.

    The document, signed by Det Insp Selley, said: 'The officer has meddled in the private lives of his neighbours. 'I am satisfied he has inappropriately interfered in the lives of his neighbours.' A police spokesman said: 'The seriousness of Mr Folkes' allegations, and the need to avoid any repetition of the same, has been fully impressed upon Sgt Jones.

    'All the matters reported to the police have been investigated fully and an appropriate conclusion to the matters has been achieved. 'We are trying to work with both parties to achieve a long-term solution to what is a complicated situation and to comment further would not further any potential for both parties to live happily as neighbours.' Simon and wife Carole have two sons, Jeremy, 23, and Jason, 20.

    The Professional Standards Department is responsible for the investigation of all public complaints made about police officers, police staff or special constables.

  • MASONIC COP U-TURN ON PHOTOGRAPHERS AND ANTI-TERROR LAWS

    cop stop Police U-turn on photographers and anti-terror laws.
    Don’t use anti-terror laws to prevent pictures being taken, officers told.

    Police forces across the country have been warned to stop using anti-terror laws to question and search innocent photographers after The Independent forced senior officers to admit that the controversial legislation is being widely misused. The strongly worded warning was circulated by the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) last night. In an email sent to the chief constables of England and Wales's 43 police forces, officers were advised that Section 44 powers should not be used unnecessarily against photographers. The message says: "Officers and community support officers are reminded that we should not be stopping and searching people for taking photos. Unnecessarily restricting photography, whether from the casual tourist or professional, is unacceptable." Chief Constable Andy Trotter, chairman of Acpo's media advisory group, took the decision to send the warning after growing criticism of the police's treatment of photographers.

    Writing in today's Independent, he says: "Everyone... has a right to take photographs and film in public places. Taking photographs... is not normally cause for suspicion and there are no powers prohibiting the taking of photographs, film or digital images in a public place." He added: "We need to make sure that our officers and Police Community Support Officers [PCSOs] are not unnecessarily targeting photographers just because they are going about their business. The last thing in the world we want to do is give photographers a hard time or alienate the public. We need the public to help us. "Photographers should be left alone to get on with what they are doing. If an officer is suspicious of them for some reason they can just go up to them and have a chat with them – use old-fashioned policing skills to be frank – rather than using these powers, which we don't want to over-use at all."

    Section 44 of the Terrorism Act allows the police to stop and search anyone they want, without need for suspicion, in a designated area. The exact locations of many of these areas are kept secret from the public, but are thought to include every railway station in and well-known tourist landmarks thought to be at risk of terrorist attacks. Many photographers have complained that officers are stopping them in the mistaken belief that the legislation prohibits photographs in those areas. Forces who use Section 44, most commonly London's Metropolitan Police, have repeatedly briefed and guided frontline officers on how to use the powers without offending the public. But privately senior officers are "exasperated, depressed and embarrassed" by the actions of junior officers and, particularly, PCSOs who routinely misuse the legislation. One source said that an "internal urban myth" had built up around police officers who believe that photography in Section 44 areas is not allowed.

    The aberrations have resulted in nearly 100 complaints to the police watchdog. Since April 2008 every complaint made by a member of the public about the use of Section 44 powers, unlike other complaints, must be forwarded to the Independent Police Complaints Commission. In the past 18 months there have been 94 complaints. Eight of these specifically mentioned the fact that the issue arose around photography. Acpo's communiqué has been welcomed by rank-and-file police officers and photographers alike. Simon Reed, the chairman of the Police Federation, which represents England and Wales's 140,000 rank-and-file officers, said: "I think some new guidance will be welcome."

    New orders: The message to officers

    This is the message circulated by Andy Trotter, of the Association of Chief Police Officers, to police forces in England and Wales.

    "Officers and PCSOs are reminded that we should not be stopping and searching people for taking photos. "There are very clear rules around how stop-and-search powers can be used. However, there are no powers prohibiting the taking of photographs, film or digital images in a public place. Therefore members of the public and press should not be prevented from doing so. "We need to co-operate with the media and amateur photographers. They play a vital role as their images help us identify criminals.

    "We must acknowledge that citizen journalism is a feature of modern life and police officers are now photographed and filmed more than ever. "However, unnecessarily restricting photography, whether from the casual tourist or professional is unacceptable and worse still, it undermines public confidence in the police service."

    A personal viewpoint: 'I was reminded why I left the police'

    I spent 27 years as a PC in the Met, but it was during a trip to my old police station with a friend late last year that I was starkly reminded why I eventually decided to leave. Since 2003 I have been living in France, where I coach a children's rugby team not far from Toulouse. But last December my sister needed to see a specialist in Harley Street so I went with her and a rugby friend of mine back to London for the week. While my sister went to the doctors I suggested to my friend, Will, that we should go and take a look at Albany Street police station near Regent's Park, which was where I spent my first eight years as a copper.

    It's the kind of station that looks like something out of Dixon of Dock Green, it has a lovely little blue police light outside the entrance and I asked Will whether he'd take a picture of me standing underneath it. Within seconds we found ourselves approached by two PCSOs who told us that we were not allowed to take photographs of police stations. I didn't want to be a sad old git by telling stories of my past and the nostalgia I felt for the place. So instead I said: "We're tourists. We want a picture of that Blue lamp, it's iconic and it represents London bobbies." But they didn't want any of it and ordered us to stop taking photographs. The second PCSO started asking Will for his details which he began to give before I informed him that he was under no obligation to do so.

    I'd clearly failed what the police call "the attitude test" because they radioed for back-up from inside the police station and we were soon joined by a police constable. Often during my time as a policeman I would hear this policy. If someone was bolshy, argumentative or challenging in any manner, refusing to play by the police rules and not willing to show deference, then they had failed the "attitude test". I guess I hoped the PC would show more common sense but he repeated the same line, that the police station was in a "sensitive zone" and that we had to stop taking photographs. Eventually we gave up and walked away.

  • DOCTOR KELLY WAS MURDERED AND SIX DOCTORS DEMAND NEW INQUEST

    david kelly Mystery: Government weapons expert David Kelly

    Six doctors who believe government scientist David Kelly was murdered have launched a ground-breaking legal action to demand the inquest into his death is reopened. They are to publish a hard-hitting report which they claim proves the weapons expert did not commit suicide as the Hutton Report decided. They have also engaged lawyers to write to Attorney General Baroness Scotland and the coroner Nicholas Gardiner calling for a full re-examination of the circumstances of his death.

    The doctors are asking for permission to go to the High Court to reopen the inquest on the grounds that it was improperly suspended. If Baroness Scotland rejects that demand, or the court turns them down, their lawyers say they will have grounds to seek judicial review of the decision. Dr Kelly was found dead at a beauty spot near his Oxfordshire home in 2003, days after he was exposed as the source of a story that Tony Blair's government 'sexed-up' its dossier on Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction to justify invading Iraq. In one final phone conversation, he told a caller he wouldn't be surprised 'if my body was found in the woods'.

    The inquest into Dr Kelly's death was suspended before it could begin by order of the then Lord Chancellor Lord Falconer. He used the Coroners Act to designate the Hutton Inquiry as 'fulfilling the function of an inquest'. Lord Falconer, a former flatmate of Tony Blair, was also responsible for picking Lord Hutton to run the inquiry. But the doctors claim that the original inquest was never formally closed and should now be allowed to hold a proper inquiry.

    The six are Michael Powers, a QC and former coroner; trauma surgeon David Halpin; Andrew Rouse, an epidemiologist who established that deaths from cutting the ulnar artery – as claimed in Dr Kelly's case – are extremely rare; Martin Birnstingl, another surgeon; plus Stephen Frost and Chris Burns-Cox. Lord Hutton concluded that Dr Kelly killed himself by severing an ulnar artery in his left wrist after taking an overdose of prescription painkillers but he skated over the controversies about the causes of death. The bulk of his report was dedicated to the political row between Downing Street and the BBC, which revealed the sexing-up of the dossier.

    Dr Kelly's death certificate states that he died of a haemorrhage, but the results of a post mortem examination have never been made public. Crucially, the doctors say that Lord Hutton had no witnesses on oath and did not have to make a finding, as the coroner does, beyond a reasonable doubt. The doctors tried to persuade the coroner to reopen his inquest in 2004 but were rejected because they were not judged to be 'properly interested persons' with the authority to demand an inquiry.

    Now they have hired human rights lawyers Leigh Day & Co to challenge the use of the Coroners Act to close the inquest. A source close to the doctors said: 'Lord Falconer is on record saying this is a "useful little law" but it was set up to avoid multiple inquests in cases where there were multiple deaths. It has been used for victims of train crashes and the Harold Shipman case but Dr Kelly's was not a multiple death.

    'We argue that that's an abuse of due process. The lawyers have sent the letters this week. We have concentrated on the finding on the death certificate that the primary cause of death was a haemorrage. We are spelling out why he could not have died from a cut to the small ulnar artery.' One of the doctors, who preferred not to be named, added: 'When the Romans committed suicide they would slit all four arteries in a warm bath, which keeps the blood flowing. The arteries would close up in the open air and you would not lose that much blood.'

    A book on the unanswered questions surrounding the case by Liberal Democrat MP Norman Baker concluded that Dr Kelly may have been murdered by Iraqi exiles – but the finger has also been pointed at MI5 and the CIA. Dr Kelly's family have never commented publicly on his death.
