Eight Al Qaeda fanatics working for the police (but they don't dare sack them) By STEPHEN WRIGHT - 7th July 2007
Up to eight police officers and civilian staff are suspected of links to extremist groups including Al Qaeda.
Some are even believed to have attended terror training camps in Pakistan or Afghanistan.
Their names feature on a secret list of alleged radicals said to be working in the Metropolitan and other forces.
Why did this happen? Apparently, it's due to affirmative action:
The dossier was drawn up with the help of MI5 amid fears that individuals linked to Islamic extremism are taking advantage of police attempts to increase the proportion of ethnic staff.
A combination of civil service rules and political correctness would seem to be what's keeping these Islamic fundamentalists on the London Metropolitan Police Force:
Astonishingly, many of the alleged jihadists have not been sacked because - it is claimed - police do not have the "legal power" to dismiss them.
We can also reveal that one suspected jihadist officer working in the South East has been allowed to keep his job despite being caught circulating Internet images of beheadings and roadside bombings in Iraq.
He is said to have argued that he was trying to "enhance" debate about the war.
Other problems—it's difficult to carry out background checks on officers who were born in Pakistan or Saudi Arabia, or have spent large amounts of time overseas, since in that case, the London police have to rely on Pakistan's police force, or Saudi Arabia's. Good luck!
Now, compare this tenderness towards Muslims accused of consorting with terrorists with the size of the hammer that falls on any police officer accused of being "racist."
As a result of the Stephen Lawrence public inquiry report, which accused the Met of being "institutionally racist", Scotland Yard has in recent years employed thousands of officers and civilian staff from the ethnic minorities in an attempt to reach recruitment targets.
This has not only led to hiring minorities with bad backgrounds, but persecution of actual British policemen who are accused of being too British.
BBC NEWS | UK | ACPO bans police from joining BNP 27 July, 2004 Police officers and staff could face dismissal if they join the British National Party (BNP) under a new policy agreed by senior officers.
The Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) said the policy was unanimously endorsed at a Chief Constables' Council meeting this month.
The policy applied to membership of bodies in conflict with the force's duty to promote race equality, it said.
But the BNP says it is a legal party, and that Acpo's policy is undemocratic.
The last story describes the persecution of policemen who belong to legal party which wants to restrict immigration—imagine how much better off they'd be if they were Muslim terrorists.
