Police Discretion

BBC News is reporting today on a possible move to give the police greater discretion in applying the law following a series of trials. The move is an attempt to replace targets and strikes me as potentially significant move. One BDSM discussion board is already covering the story today from an Operation Spanner angle with a variety of views. For me this has broader application - to possible HIV transmission/barebacking cases, public sex instances and thanks to the recent Criminal Justice and Immigration Act, violent pornography. Such a move palces greater responsibility on 'experts' and activists such as myself to ensure that the Police approach these issues in an informed and measured way. A story to watch.
