Just so you can all appreciate what a con job the Police verdict to find the GCSB not guilty of THEIR request to illegally spy on Dotcom really is; the law does not require the establishment of criminal intent, it requires proof of intentional intervention by a person without lawful authority to do so.
The intent of the GCSB has nothing to do with it, that they intentionally intercepted is the threshold for prosecution!
This decision was also ‘independently’ reviewed by none other than the QC who is also prosecuting Kim Dotcom.
It’s a God damn stitch up ladies and gentlemen.
The contempt of due legal process for the pursuit of mass surveillance powers is chilling, and the ongoing abuse to our civil liberties which are shrugged off as the exception and not the rule sound hollow as we see example after example after example, month after month after month.
There is a repetitive nature to these attacks on democracy by this Government in the last half decade, and the only way I see it changing is by throwing this Party out of power in 2014.
If this is the sort of interpretive chicanery and sham independence the Police are pulling to justify spying when they are caught red handed, imagine the Kafkaesque deceptions we are all in store for now this obscenity is legal?
