“Britain’s Most Respected and Best Established Open Source Business,” According to Sirius (With Many Government Clients in Its Past), Protected From Prosecution?

Summary: The response from the police (or lack thereof) is a testament or a sign of a defunct system, wherein committing crimes against the vulnerable might be OK; cops don't prioritise such cases

TODAY, Thursday, is two days before the self-imposed soft deadline of British police. Less than 30 hours from now they're supposed to have already looked into the report of crimes by Sirius 'Open Source'. The evidence is extensive, the language used is polite, and all the correct procedures were followed when the report got filed.

So what's taking so long?

So far I've received no letter, no phonecall, and no E-mail. Imagine being in a situation where enforcement is so urgent that it's a life-or-death situation. In this case, the matter is urgent as soon there will be no company left to enforce against.

"Who are they protecting? The rich tax evaders, who aren't even contributing much to the budget of the police?"The video above goes through this latest part in a series. If there's a point to be made here, it's that the police is unfit for purpose when it comes to white-collar crimes. When it comes to fraud, Action Fraud exists to protect the rich and powerful people from the "hackers" and scammers, but it won't protect ordinary citizens from rich and powerful corporations.

On Friday I intend to phone them asking for updates. But I won't get my hopes too high, based on past experiences. The likely outcome is, they will say they still sit on it and need more time. Remember that these people are receiving their salaries from taxpayers. Who are they protecting? The rich tax evaders, who aren't even contributing much to the budget of the police?
