Belgian Police Behaving Badly (You've Gotta Love That Technology)!

Remember my post about that notorious paedophile Marc Dutroux, which I blogged about in June? Well, you might also re-call that the Dutroux affair revealed one other thing: that the police could not be trusted to do their job properely.

Today's article in Brussel's free "Metro" newspaper, which you can read here is a bit of a nudge and wink to that sentiment by Belgians about how they feel about their police.

The article entitled "Policiers pris en flagrant délit", or Police officers caught in the act goes to show what technology, by way of mobile phones in the hands of citizens, can do to help or hinder progress.

Simply put, the article maintains that : "Les téléphones portables servent de plus en plus à prendre en photo les infractions des policiers.", or that mobile phones are increasingly being used to snap pictures of offending policemen, which, in turn, are sent to different police stations round the country!

Well, good to know those officers unable to justify their reasons for their "infractions" have been sanctioned.

I suspect that snapping pictures of policemen behaving badly will be replaced very soon by videos of them, lending more credence to any infractions, as compared to a photo that can be altered to anyone's whim. I understand from sources closely studying blogging revolution that VIDEO blogging will also soon become the way.

The future doesn't have to be Orange before being bright, does it?;-))
