For Now's The Time For Your Tears
Just in case you didn't think Diaz Pertini was bad enough, just in case you didn't think all the police officers involved in Diaz Pertini getting off was bad enough, a former Italian President and Home Secretary advocates not only the systematic use of violence and infilitration as tactics against peaceful protesters but apparently reveals that that was his method when in office (via this generally good post). Apparently for the Casa Della Liberta, freedom means the suppression of any protest against the government of the day through the institutionalisation of systematic police brutality. Also, three rather good pieces on the Shannon Matthews case and the moral panic surrounding it.
