This is not a shock at all to me, infact I have been waiting for info like this to be released and I dare say it may be worse than this.
I can speak from personal experience of having non-existing charges tied to my name, and it is extremely difficult to explain to a potential employer
that the offence is not an offence and by LAW does not exist but alas it's still there... on my record of "criminal activities"
Also when crimes of a certain nature or crimes of the past are supposed to be "removed" over time... that's a complete lie too nothing is ever
removed. EDIT (I meant cautions)
For instance when I was at school (more than 10 years ago) I was cautioned with assault, fair enough I did it and I was in the wrong but I am not a
violent person and this HAS been a flagged thing that has affected my ability to get a job. ( the lad was saying and trying to do things with my gf,
things you wouldn't say or do to a grown woman and I snapped)
BTW the original caution that is fake was a caution for the possession of cannabis seeds... that were actually hemp.
When interviewed for the place I work at atm, the guy laughed uncontrollably when he saw my CRB and said that this is the best joke he's saw all
I feel sorry for those this could/will seriously effect

I also agree that this could come to the US soon, I cannot help but notice the UK is often the testing area for new government systems, policies and
law. So if you do use some of our systems I'd make sure they work properly and effectively first
