Up to 8 UK cops suspected of Al-Qaeda links, not fired because of political correctness

Just in from the Daily Mail:

* Of course, they should never have been hired in the first place, but the UK (like the US) was anxious to have a “diverse” force, and of course no one would have dared to try to determine whether or not the prospective cops had any sympathies with the global jihad. And the fact that instead of being fired, as well as jailed and deported, they are kept on the force, is just another example of the suicidal lunacy that prevails in the West in our age.

“Al Qaeda fanatics working in police (but they don’t dare sack them),” by Stephen Wright in the Daily Mail (thanks to Hot Air):

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.

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.

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.

Classified intelligence reports raising concerns about police staff’s background cannot be used to justify their dismissal, sources said.

Instead, the staff who are under suspicion are unofficially barred from working in sensitive posts and are closely monitored. Political correctness is blamed for the decision not to sack them.

It is widely feared that “long-term” Al Qaeda sleepers are trying to infiltrate other public sector organisations in the UK.

    THREE Oldham teenagers have been cleared of attempted murder because police lost video footage which might have been vital in their defence.

    Judge Simon Fawcus stayed the indictment against them on the grounds of abuse of process, saying: “I reach this conclusion with some regret. It is plain on what I have heard this was one of several serious racially motivated attacks carried out at Oldham this period where white youths were deliberately targeted.”

    The judge discharged the youths – two 16 and the other 17 – who were all legally aided and cannot be named because of their age. They denied attempting to murder Mark Clayton, who was stabbed on 27 January last year in a sub-way in Manchester Street in Oldham town centre.

    Mr Clayton was on his way to work as a pub disc jockey when he was savagely attacked by a large group of young Asians. The attack was racially motivated “with robbery as an ancillary motive”. The victim thought he might be able to recognise some of them again.

    The three defendants were arrested after they were identified by another young man. They denied involvement. Less than a fortnight after the attack, the victim was taken to the Spindles Shopping Centre where many Asian youths often gathered.

    In the control room, he watched monitors linked to security cameras and identified a man as an assailant. That man was arrested but had an alibi which if correct, meant Mr Clayton was mistaken.

    Without the video footage, no one could say how clear faces were on the “important” one at the shopping centre. In addition the paper management system might have provided leads the defence lawyers could have followed up had also been lost.

    “I have come to the conclusion the combination of problems – identification and the loss of the videos, particularly that of the shopping centre – make it a real possibility these defendants cannot have fair trial,” said the judge.

    Later a senior crown lawyer said police were “very embarrassed” by the loss of the videos and paperwork. There was an office re-structuring in the middle of last year. An exhibits officer put the videos and paperwork in a box when she was on maternity leave. On her return the box and the contents had disappeared. All efforts to trace them had failed.
