Outrage D'Jour

Up to eight police officers and civilian staff are suspected of links to extremist groups including Al Qaeda.

Some are even believed to have attended terror training camps in Pakistan or Afghanistan.

Their names feature on a secret list of alleged radicals said to be working in the Metropolitan and other forces.
It's not only the fact they've been allowed to infiltrate in the first place, it's the fact PC Plod is lying to protect them:
Astonishingly, many of the alleged jihadists have not been sacked because - it is claimed - police do not have the "legal power" to dismiss them.
No power to fire members of allegedly extremist groups ? Really ?

It's the perfect barometer of where we are today that police management will persecute members of a legal political party, even while refusing to act against actual terrorist sympathisers. The double standard is even more blatant than that:
We can also reveal that one suspected jihadist officer working in the South East has been allowed to keep his job despite being caught circulating Internet images of beheadings and roadside bombings in Iraq.

He is said to have argued that he was trying to "enhance" debate about the war.
Hey, maybe these guys should have tried that.
