Undercover Cop Cleared To Have Sex With Activists

According to a recent article from the Guardian, an undercover police officer was recently granted permission to have sex with political activists as a tactic for collecting more information. The police force “officially” refers to this as a tactic of “promiscuity”.  According to the cops, “You cannot not be promiscuous in those groups. Otherwise you’ll stand out straightaway.”

As a result of this information being leaked, hundreds of feminist activists marched in protest on Scotland Yard. As one of the climate activists who knew the accused police officer said,  “We know women have been abused by men posing as policemen and it’s becoming clear this was state-sanctioned. These women did not know they were forming a relationship with policemen. It’s appalling – and now we want the full details of the undercover officers to be made public.”

    Would this be government-funded prostitution, too? Is Scotland Yard now a brothel?

    Wow! I don’t know whether to be flattered or offended that they think we activists “cannot not be promiscuous”! Mind-boggling!
