The police are considering a proposal to let selected British Muslims examine the intelligence used to mount anti-terrorism raids before they take place, the Guardian has learned.
. . . A senior police source with knowledge of the issues involved said: "We are working on sharing more information with the community before, during and after events so they understand as much of the context as we can provide."
. . . Any British Muslims shown intelligence would be security vetted but would not have a veto on the raid.
Well, thank goodness for small miracles.
If the goal is to enhance, or provide perspective, on intelligence then shouldn't law enforcement have some Muslims or Islamic experts on staff?
Otherwise, including non-law-enforcement, 'community groups' is either political correctness gone nuts or an attempt to defuse blame should another raid turn up nothing. Either way this would appear to be a dangerous precedent and a total waste of time.
