Harry Miller Speaks For Us All

‘I have broad shoulders, but this fight is hard,’ he told the Mail this week. ‘If ordinary people like myself don’t stand up against what I see as over-reaching authority by the police, who will?

‘It is definitely not the job of the State to restrict what we can or cannot talk about, either in face-to-face conversation or online.’

Harry is, of course, the businessman who was treated abominably by some jumped-up little Common Purpose drone in Humberside Police. And decided he wasn’t going to stand for it any longer.

He has been granted a judicial review against the College of Policing, which trains officers and sets standards. He is challenging its guidelines on ‘hate crimes’ in all walks of life, and particularly on social media.

The judgment will be announced in the next few days.

It’s one to watch, without a doubt. Because this could finally be the start to return to normality.

Since the catch-all guidance was released, police forces have recorded at least 87,000 non-crime hate incidents ā€” none of which break the law.

Scotland Yard, which now has a staggering 900 hate crime officers, has chalked up the highest number ā€” 9,473 over the past five years.

The waste of resources is staggering. Someone is collating these figures, someone is distributing them (to whom?) and policy is being made with them. All for things which don’t break the law. And this is being done by the people who’s very existence should be dedicated to the law, and nothing else…

And hate incident investigations are diverting officers from the priority of tackling violent crime, according to Cressida Dick, Scotland Yard’s Commissioner and Britain’s most senior police officer.

Interesting! Does this oh so political creature sense that the tide is turning?

Humberside Police told the judge that its action over Harry’s tweets had resulted in only ‘minimal’ interference with his freedom of expressions.

A glimpse of the mentality of authoritarians with too much power. There should be no acceptance of even a ‘minimal’ interference with freedom of expression.

    The most stunning thing about this case is the Police having a category of crime listed as “non-crime”. You can’t make it up.
    If it’s a non-crime, why is it being investigated? If it’s a non-crime, why is it being saved on the Police database?
    The most chilling is when challenged by Harry, the Police couldn’t tell him whether the “Non-crime” crimes would be divulged on a full DBS check. The best answer he go was “it depends”. Depends on what? Whether you’re friends with the Police Chief?
    The judicial review is well overdue and hopefully will shine a light on the murky world of made-up-hate crime-non-crime.

    It seems that being guilty of not committing a crime can adversely affect your future, while being guilty of being a complete knobhead can only lead to promotion and, if you’re a high enough rank, a possible Queen ‘s Police Medal.

    In the Province of the Mind,what one believes to be true is either true or becomes true within certain limits, these limits are to be found experiamentaly or experiencialy When these limits turn out to be further beliefs to be transcended in the provinces of the mind there are no limits. However in the body there are limits. A maxim that could be applicable to Herr Constable.
