Hmm, I've had to open a new tag. It seems Sussex Police are going to feature a lot.
As Leg-Iron reports, they (following the lead from the council) seem to be keen to enact the worst parts of George Orwell's 1984 by arresting, DNA gathering and then releasing without a word of apology a man who sent an email they considered to be 'racist'.
Oh, wait, no they didn't. They arrested, DNA harvested and then released a man who employed a man who sent an email they considered to be 'racist'. That they haven't yet arrested that man can only be a matter of time.
It's no wonder that they are considered one of the worst forces for removing DNA taken unnecessarily. After all, they must have so much of it to wade through.
It's just as well Sussex is such a crime-free area that they can spare the manpower for rhyming slang in emails, isn't it? It's not like there are murders to investigate, some right under their very noses, after all. And the place is relatively burglary-free, I'm sure.
Still, I suppose they have to use all those hire cars on something...
