Monbiot says disband ACPO

If some good is to emerge from the outrageous (undercover cop)Kennedy saga, it must start with the disbanding of the ACPO. Though it has now lost some of its powers, it remains a sinister and undemocratic organisation. There is no role for a private company overseeing public policing, especially a private company run by senior public servants.

The police chiefs who commissioned the spy rings run by ACPO's organisations must be held to account. If they have broken the law, they must be put on trial. Only then will we have some chance of believing that the law applies to everyone, and is not the exclusive property of corporations and secretive chief constables.
