Olympiad Readiness: Militarized London Total Policing


London turned into a militarized police state for Olympics.

Olympism today differs vastly from its Athens roots. A previous article explained it's more about profiteering, exploitation, and cynicism than sport.

Militarized London reflects something more. A 2011 "Total Policing" brochure explained. In September 2011, Bernard Hogan-Howe became Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service.

Straightaway he announced a "total policing" policy. Effectively it means anything goes. He said it's "about total war on suspects and total victim care." Take the latter concern with a grain of salt. 

An 11-page brochure said police intend to use section 60 of the 1994 Criminal Justice and Public Order Act. It gives them "the right to search people in a defined area at a specific time."

It also "provides powers to require the removal of disguises at public order events."
