    Police are making snooping requests every sixty seconds.

    Innocent people treated as paedophiles after snooping blunders

    Councils, police and other public bodies are seeking access to people’s private telephone and email records almost 1,400 times a day, new figures have disclosed.

    Five people had their homes searched and computers seized, and one was arrested, after errors in requests for email and phone records meant they were wrongly targeted, a watchdog has revealed.

    Sir Anthony May, the Interception of Communications Commissioner, said the impact of such mistakes could be “devastating”.

    Blunders in another case meant three genuine suspects escaped justice because their records had been deleted by the time the errors were discovered.

    By Tom Whitehead and James Kirkup of The Telegraph.

    See the full report from TheTelegraph HERE




    Nobody wants paedophiles to escape justice, but if the authorities are going to get this campaign right then they are going to have to be much more careful about who they spy on.

    How would YOU like to be called a paedophile when you are innocent of such terrible accusations ?

    That sounds a bit scary Paps, but then again, if you are doing nothing wrong you should not be worried about such things.

    The trouble is that even when innocent some people - as this thread shows - can still get caught in that catch-all net we have to be extremely vigilant that this does not happen.

    To make a "snooping" request every sixty seconds, the police must use computers to do this, as if they were using up admin time for this it would be a terrible loss of taxpayers money.

    Do we trust computers to do this job ?

    I certainly don't.

    They'll have fun with my phone records, I only ring taxis and my doctor's surgery. Incoming calls are all spammers.

    That's sad HG, as many elderly folk use the telephone, ( usually Mobile ), to try to beat loneliness.

    A lot of these types of folk, like you and I, don't have the cash, the ability or the inclination to use the internet to help to fill our lives.

    Very soon, if you are not on the internet, you are going to lose out on a lot of services and entertainment in the future.
