Agree totally, and do not let TPB do away with the enshrined right to Trial By Jury!
Good, Independent Judges are hard to find, many Judges accepting the Political constraints of their appointment.
However, Legislation, Politics and receipt of taxes relies upon the majority accepting rule by the few. If the few are so transparently corrupt as the
current incumbents, wherever they rule, then the majority eventually wake up and one way or another there is change.
The UK legal system of old, was the banner standard of many modern emerging Nations across the globe, usually following the old pink coloured
Commonwealth Nations on a world map. Many emerging Nations utilised this model for their own systems. Even now, when it works properly, the UK system
is the best in the world, at times, it's rulings baffle the most open of minds. Jury trials, unless misdirected or totally hoodwinked usually return
a just verdict.
Back to the OP though, predictable crime is nothing new, it is the product of actionable intelligence and frankly, anyone sat there with a working
meth lab in front of them when The Old Bill or The Fed's knock the door down, with or without a warrant deserves to be placed in front of a jury of
their peers as soon as possible, once they have worked out their defence and screwed the legal aid system that is! It's no use crying over spilt milk
with regard to these people, they have no regard for the health and welfare of their victims do they?
Still not sure? Consider this, a growing problem, made worse by seasonal inebriation in the UK, is that of illicit alcohol, made with the likes of
Ethanol and other such delicacies, it can blind, maim or even kill those that drink it. Those that make it don't give a flying fig about that, they
are only interested in the profit, created by the desire of people needing cheap alcohol. Predictable crime, damn right when you consider excessive
duty rates, diminishing wages or unemployment, addiction to alcohol etc. etc., moonshine my rear end, it's illegal, f'ing poisonous and reduces the
amount of tax required to pick up the resulting mess. Knock down a few more doors without warrant, let the courts decide on the legality of it all and
miss out the inept Crown Prosecution Service or CPS in the process, in the good old days The Old Bill would prosecute their own cases in the Lower
Courts and save a fortune in taxpayers money as a result.
Unless you live in the UK you will not have a clue what a mess the PC/liberal brigade have created. The legal system is weighed too heavily to one
side on the scales of justice and the balance needs to be returned to where it was - have a look at the top of The Old Bailey in London if you are
In closing, a CI, snout, informant or whatever, is historically as much of a part of the legal system as anything else, and like any other part, can
be misused if safeguards are ignored. Used correctly, they remain a justifiable part of the LE armoury as the Constitution itself. If people didn't
break the law in the first place they would not be required, I know that's Utopia, but one can hope surely?
