News is breaking that a policeman was hospitalised this morning after being hit by a van in Newton Heath, Manchester.
The police had been called to a property and during this they attempted to speak with a driver of a van. The van driver apparebtly struck the officer and several cars.
The police are appealing for anyone who spots the van to contact them but have given no description of the person they are seeking.
Online some people are making suggestions about the dominant 'culture' in Newton Heath. I know nothing of the area.
So there you are folks - if you have seen a black van contact Manchester Police.
From a Telegraph story today:
Apparently this was first introduced in 2012, yet US authorities claimed they couldn’t access the phone of a gunman just a couple of years ago.
Admittedly, it isn’t clear from the article whether they need a user password to access the data.. but the implication is no user consent is required. It is also reported as being used for very low level crime, both from suspects and victims.. and the data taken isn’t selective, it’s bulk.
Any IT bods here know more about this kind of technology, and if the police have it, do criminal gangs have it yet?
