Does the NHS Spy on Local Police?
The New York State Senate (a gang of authoritarians I last criticized here) has passed a bill to make it a felony to harass or annoy a police officer (seen via Boing Boing (when they're anti-authoritarian I'll include the vowels)). I suspect that might include recording police without permission. This brings up the obvious question: Does the NHS record police brutality? (That doesn't appear to be part of the latest scandal but they might be doing it as part of another program.) Could a crackdown on NHS spying be used by local police departments the way anti-wiretapping laws were?
