This is pretty ominous stuff. If the police really cared about crime and didn't slavishly follow the directives of their political masters they wouldn't have done something like this at all. It kind of reminds me of how America's Most Wanted showed photos of some guy who was pilfering telephone booths of their coinage in Florida. I think this was in 1988. This sort of thing has happened before with video footage of picket lines used to incriminate striking workers. The people who identified the demonstrators to the London cops basically as guilty of collaboration as much as any colloborators who peddled information to the Gestapo in the occupied Europe of WWII. It's not goodeither way.
