Clarification on the Police National Database
Here is a gem from the first link:
"The NPIA go on to say that holding such victim data is important because it will help the police to realize when vulnerable people are being repeatedly targeted and prompt them to provide additional protection. The example they cite is of a recent Police National Database (PND) search on a victim of domestic violence, which revealed a pattern of abusive relationships across the country. They say that now the police force in question is fully appraised of the situation, they are in a better position to protect her and to “help her to break the pattern of abusive relationships.”"
Are they serious? It's now their job to nanny and monitor a woman because of her choice of relationships? And of course this means any man who has a relationship with her in the future will automatically be considered a probable abuser, even if he has no idea about her history and never lays a finger on her.
And they actually have the gall to use this to justify their invasive database!
