state is being designed to keep everyone logged and tagged, watch what we
spend, watch what we buy, and any fraud will be policed by the banks.
But what happens
if the company that you bought a camera from on-line has its database breached and credit card details are stolen. What happens when that company whose database has been
breached doesn’t tell the banks. What happens if your stolen credit card details are
then used to purchase on-line pornography. What if your stolen details are used to
purchase worse. What if you only find out when you get a visit from the Policemen
running operation ORE, and are accused of paedophilia.
A life changing
moment. Suddenly you find yourself arrested, fingerprinted, DNA swabbed and on the Sex offenders register (the suspicion or accusation
alone will put you on the database). That in turn will impact your work
prospects, your credit, your standing in the community.
If you have a job you would likely be sacked, ridiculed, shunned or worse.
And for what, you
have done nothing wrong. It will be the databases that are wrong, the company
that failed to notify the breach would be wrong, and the criminals stealing
from one company and using your details.
You would know
nothing about it, and as the law stands you could DO nothing about it. You
would not be able to have your name removed from the Sex register, or have the
accusation removed from other databases run and operated by the state, banks or
credit card companies, even if you could find out which databases your bad
details were on.
Operation Ore began when US investigators handed a list of more than
7,200 names to British police. Each of the names appeared on a credit card
transaction list, detailing card information processed by a portal site called
Landslide.com, but the operation might have been based on rather shakier
evidence than the police would like to admit.
police are now target driven, they have finally admitted that they have not even tried to work out who the real
paedophiles are, and who are the innocent victims of credit card fraud.
In The Guardian today, investigative reporter Duncan Campbell says the evidence on
which thousands of cases rest is unreliable.
This entire operation needs to be
investigated now, and the police need to come clean, be totally transparent, because the very
accusation can destroy lives.
