Photographing & Videoing Police

There has been a spate of people having their phones or cameras confiscated following the observance of the police conducting themselves in a manner prejudicial to the common good. Now, setting aside the obvious ramifications under S26 Criminal Justice and Courts Act 2015 and of Misconduct in Public Office (a common law crime which carries a life sentence for anyone with an oath of office), there are the obvious moral implications under Magna Carta – the denial of right or justice…

Handcuffs = Assault

With an increase on the highly questionable use of handcuffs on members of the public we feel it is time you should be completely clear on the legitimacy of the use of handcuffs by the police (or anyone for that matter). EVERY use of handcuffs constitutes an assault. EVERY SINGLE TIME. Whether or not their deployment was ‘legal’ comes down to a review of the police officer’s OPINION regarding the circumstances of their deployment. Needless to say they are often WRONG….

Value Your Privacy?

It is a straightforward question, do you value your privacy? People in Britain are beginning to wake up to the fact that all is not as it seems. Successive governments have been chipping away at the rights and freedoms of the people of Britain and within a couple of weeks of the most recent (non)government in May 2015, the (non)Prime Minister has made it clear that he intends to strip away remaining vestiges of privacy in the name of counter-terrorism….

Swearing at the Police

Now here is an interesting one. No one can deny that the use of foul language has become second nature to some people. Regrettably there are still a lot of folk in the big wide world who do not swear and moreover can be alarmed or offended by it. Why don’t you go and grow some f’ing balls then. Well, it’s not as easy as that. We should all be mindful of other people’s feelings – it is part of…

Civil Arrest

There has been a great deal of discussion lately about the public’s power of civil arrest. Some activist groups are promoting it more aggressively than others. We would like to point out that whilst such a power exists, there has also grown up a mass of disinformation about the mechanism. Advice observed on some group pages is a clear recipe to get yourself arrested, Article 61 or not. We, the people of the UK have the same powers of arrest as any…

The Power of Power of Attorney

Now I’m certain you must be wondering what on earth power of attorney must be doing on a site dedicated to lawful rebellion. Am I right? As shown on other pages, Article 61 is THE and only defence against statute law, where that statute law does not coincide with common law. I have also shown how the police can abuse what little power they have left over lawful rebels. On the habeas corpus page the matter is looked at in more…

Unlawful Detention & Habeas Corpus

If you are an activist then you are highly susceptible to arrest by the police who claim to have an array of powers over you. Yes we know about Article 61. Yes we know about ‘lawful excuse’ and yes we know that the police cannot lawfully arrest us for a statutory offence unless what we did was also a common law crime. Here’s the problem. The police do not know. They should know. Some do know but are told by their peers or superiors to…

De-Arrest

De-Arrest An important matter which has come to our attention is that police officers have been stating that if a private citizen arrests another person (or a police officer) the police have the power to “de-arrest” them.  No such concept exists in British law! It has the same meaning and validity as claiming one could “de-punch” a person after hitting them! It simply cannot happen. ANY police officer who claims they can de-arrest someone is committing fraud, Malfeasance and Misfeasance and…
