UK police database abuse 'hugely intrusive'

twoheadedboy writes "Police database abuse has been branded as "hugely intrusive" after a report showed over 900 officers and staff had breached the Data Protection Act over the last three years. Furthermore, 243 police officers and staff received criminal convictions for breaking laws set down by the DPA. This comes in the same week as allegations former Downing Street head of communications Andy Coulson paid the police for access to privileged information."

Perhaps, but just think how beneficial this is to Ruppert Murdoch, who can afford to pay these guys for the jucy tidbits. It may be the end of the world, but there's nothing new under the sun.
