Murdoch’s paper hired Special Ops team to monitor UK police

How creepy is this? It’s still amazing to think that Rupert Murdoch and his media empire in the US is not tarnished by this ongoing investigation. Does anyone really believe this is not a rogue media organization that will do anything to stir up a story and smear anyone who gets in their way? Using alleged former Special Ops teams to monitor the UK’s Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca) doesn’t sound right any way you try to spin it. For a team that likes to view themselves as supporters of law and order, they sure don’t struggle with staying within the boundaries of the law. The Telegraph:

Mr Harrison said that, on at least two occasions, a vehicle parked up on a roundabout on the outskirts of the town attempted to follow the Soca surveillance team. “We identified them because they were sat in the position that we would sit in if we were doing the same job,” he said. “We were told that they were probably ex-Special Forces soldiers who would have a good knowledge of surveillance techniques.”
