Meet 53-year-old, "senior counter-terrorism detective", the Metropolitan Police's Detective Chief Inspector April Casburn of Hatfield Peverel in Essex ...

 

article-2260219-16DB9710000005DC-966_306

 

 ... on 10 January 2013 she was found guilty of one count of misconduct in public office by jurors at Southwark Crown Court and is now facing jail after trying to sell information to the News of the World. She rang up the tabloid "newspaper" on 11 September 2010 and disclosed various details of a confidential police probe that had just been launched and was the subject of intense media speculation. Prosecutors said Casburn, who was manager of the national financial investigation unit with counterterrorism, tried to undermine the hacking investigation by offering to leak details to a tabloid newspaper. Prosecutor Mark Bryant-Heron told the jury: 'She sought to undermine a highly sensitive and high profile investigation at the point of its launch. 'It was a gross breach of the trust that the public places in a police officer not to disclose information on a current investigation in an unauthorised way, or to offer to do so in the future for payment.'

...

Time and time again we hear its a solitary rotten apple, and then time and time again we get more revelations, more racist police officers.

Perhaps as many people have long suspected, the symbolism of Obama is a ruse, an elaborate international PR stunt.

And perhaps in removing the public spaces for overt expressions of racist sentiments the inhumane language and behaviour that accompanies it now manifests itself in these types of instances by those who feel they have the authority to vent and get away with it.

So I ask the question not can the police be trusted but should they be?
