There are some things that never cease to amaze. In Sydney, a man has been charged with an offence of "filming a person in his private life." But he's not a papparazzi, more's the pity. He's alleged to be a high-tech peeping tom who installed cameras in public toilets at railway stations.



The need for wide exchange of information within police forces is demonstrated by the arrest yesterday of a man in a part of East London which is technically London but generally regarded by residents as in the county of Essex. The police involved were from the Metropolitan Police's Kensington and Chelsea division, that's on the opposite side of London. It is alleged that the man made a bomb threat in a fast food bar in Brompton Road, an area where there are many Middle Eastern residents. It is said he claimed to be making the threat on behalf of a far-right organisation. That, then, might reasonably be considered to be an offence of terrorism.

Having looked at the "New South Wales" police, we thought we'd take a look at "South Wales." There is a crime wave.

The use of a knife by the man who committed the Westminster attacks yesterday proves that, even in a country with very few guns and very little gun crime (any is, of course, too much) knives are a substitute. Just hours earlier, a 17 year old walking home late at night was robbed at knife point and his mobile phone (which was broken anyway) stolen.



You know that thing where Canadians are too nice? Well, we like the story where the driver in a hit and run accident went to the police station to say it was him. Meanwhile, the biggest case that afflicts the Montreal Police Department is the suspension of two senior officers after Sûreté du Québec informed the police department that the two were under investigation in relation to allegations of criminal conduct. http://globalnews.ca/news/3328...

But, hey, it's Canada. Why print bad news? Here's a picture of a local police officer, and his mates, instead
