    Thumbs down Mad Human Rights Laws (UK)

    When your new Pres starts talking "uman rights etc, re-read the story below... you just cannot make this stuff up!
    This story is in the Daily Mail today (a fairly right wing paper that tells it like it is)
    link Serious criminals cannot be named and shamed because it could 'infringe their human rights' | Mail Online


    But wait!!! There is more.... Now the word British is being compared to the offensive "N" word

    Council ranks term 'British' with 'negroes' and bans it in case it upsets Scots, Welsh and minorities | Mail Online



    Britain's equivalent of the FBI has been banned from naming and shaming gangsters because it could infringe their human rights.
    The Serious Organised Crime Agency, established to tackle drug gangs, people traffickers and criminal 'Mr Bigs', wanted to publicise details of convicted criminals to make it harder for them to reoffend.
    But the plan has been shelved after the agency's lawyers warned that making their names public could infringe their right to privacy, under Article Eight of Labour's Human Rights Act.
    Soca's legal experts said the only exception was when the offenders' details had already been publicised by the media, because a journalist was in court when the case was heard.

    This is despite the fact that courts are supposed to deliver open and transparent justice - regardless of whether the Press is present.
    The advice relates to 41 criminals who have had 'financial reporting orders' imposed on them by the courts following Soca investigations.

    These orders require criminals to provide authorities with full details of their financial activities on a regular basis and are intended to help police detect suspicious transactions.
    Soca wanted to publicise the names so that the public could inform the police if they suspected that they were engaged in undeclared illicit activity.
    But lawyers refused, citing the precedent set by a case in 2003 when Essex Police wanted to publicise the picture of a serial burglar. The force was told it would breach the convict's right to privacy.
    Critics said the Human Rights Act was hindering the fight against crime.

    The Tories said it had ' distorted priorities and benefited criminals at the expense of justice'.
    A Soca spokesman added: 'While we cannot name and shame individual recipients, we do have legal powers that mean we can share information to make sure FROs are enforced effectively.'



    WELL THERE YOU HAVE IT...ANOTHER INSIGHT INTO THE MAD MAD WORLD OF PC (that's political correct)

    I suppose stopping them delivers shame, eh? And that's verboten?

    Yeah, well. You get what you get, then. Simple as that.

    I didn't realize not being ashamed of criminal actions was a human right. I guess we learn something new every day.

    You don't need to push them anymore, they jump off all by themselves.
