Allegations of evidence tampering, interference with the pursuit of criminal suspects by other forces, and close cooperation between senior police officers and master criminals, particularly those involved in illicit drugs and prostitution, have been raised. Charges that jurors were bought off or threatened to return not-guilty verdicts, corrupt individuals working for HMRC, both in the UK and overseas, and “get out of jail free cards” being bought for £50,000 are also cited in the report.
This makes me think about the 'birth of man' Foucault was on about in The Order of Things. The creation of the 'epistemological consciousness of man,' an awareness of man as not only the locus but source of knowledge, as demonstrated in Velasquez's Las Meninas:The development of perspective in painting, the rise of the individual, the emergence and standardization of national languages, nationalism and national wars in general, the Bible-based Protestant Reformation, the beginnings of the Industrial Revolution and the age of mass production and the mass man, all of these and more were direct outgrowths of print. A mutation has occurred. The ratio of the senses has been skewed. The Eye became master.
