John Yates: policing Arab apartheid

John Yates: policing Arab apartheid | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

....

Yates’ hypocrisy is staggering. His career was ended because he was a senior policeman who was called to account for his actions by elected British politicians.

No sooner than the scandal had made him unemployable in any British police force, he accepts work in Bahrain working for a regime that is fighting its own people to try to ensure the continuation of the unaccountable system in which the Bahraini security forces can never be held accountable by Bahrain’s elected politicians!

The News of the World phone hacking scandal continues, and Yates might yet face criminal prosecution for his role in it. Even as Yates was PR-ing for the Al Khalifa regime on 12th April 2012 about how safe Bahrain is, he was once again in the British press.....

[John Yates is an idiot!]

Bahrain:Thugs backed up by police attacking Jawad 24 Hours supermarket

On 10th April 2012 group of thugs backed up by police attacked Jawad 24 Hours supermarket near ALBA roundabout in Nuwaidrat - Bahrain. This incident is one of dozens since March 2011 which indicates how systematic are the attacks and the MOI is behind it....

 

[This is Timoney and Yates' Police department!   The Police are thieves and vandals!  This is obviously sanctioned by the regime!  State authorized criminal action against the citizenry!  Absolutely horrid Al-Khalifa regime!]

Bahrain: Pro-regime militia attacks Bahraini civilians

Bahrain: Pro-regime militia attacks Bahraini civilians | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

....

Pro-regime supporters wielding knives and sticks attacked residents of Bahrain's villages overnight, witnesses and the opposition said on Wednesday.

Dozens of pro-regime thugs – nicknamed locally by activists as the Baltajiya – appeared at the Alba Roundabout on the outskirts of the capital Manama and entered a number of predominantly Shia villages.

Al-Wefaq, the largest Shia opposition group, said the attackers were in civilians clothes and "beat up" residents.

"The security forces did not carry out their duty, they did not disperse the (assailants) or prevent them from attacking citizens," the statement said, adding that authorities must "deal with these militias."

Activist Ala'a Shehabi said the Baltajiya were operating in conjunction with the police.

"They appear alongside the police and the police don't really treat them with hostility – there is a sense of familiarity between the two," she said.

Does this represent the 'new' Bahrain police under Timoney & Yates?

 

Who is charged in this egregious case of torture?  This is a crime supported and endorsed by the criminal Al-Khalifas inasmuch as they do not act decisively against the perpetrator(s) and the system that allows it.

British cop heads oppressions in Bahrain | Yates is a troll!

It has been one year since the anti-government protest in Bahrain was crushed and many called for a reform of law enforcement in the country. The ex-assistant commissioner of London's Metropolitan police has taken the task of reform. John Yates is now employed by Bahrain's Monarchy. Yates resigned from Scotland Yard last year during the phone hacking scandal and many critics believe his association with Bahrain is erroneous

John Timoney’s Bloody Journey » Counterpunch: Tells the Facts, Names the Names

John Timoney’s Bloody Journey » Counterpunch: Tells the Facts, Names the Names | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

John Timoney, until recently chief of police of Miami and before that Philadelphia, formerly of New York City, where he also was a high-ranking cop, is heading to Bahrain to train the cops there, according to the Associated Press. If you happen to know anybody from Bahrain who might be thinking that hiring this New Yorker could be a step in the direction of less massacre-oriented policing policies, this might be a good time to relieve them of any such illusions.

Religion and Politics in Bahrain: How About That Police Reform?

Religion and Politics in Bahrain: How About That Police Reform? | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

In short, rather than actual political changes that might alleviate the country's underlying political conflict, the Bahraini government has attempted to make the argument that the main lesson of the BICI report--and the primary "reform" demanded by its conclusions--is the retraining and restructuring of its police and security forces. Such an attempt to address the symptoms of Bahrain's political conflict rather than its causes was already an obvious step in the wrong direction. But now, when it's become clear not only that (1) Bahrain's rulers continue to avoid substantive political reforms by focusing on secondary issues; but also that (2) even those secondary, police-related reforms supposedly initiated are also illusory, now the smoke of obfuscation has finally cleared. The Bahrain of February 2012 is fundamentally the same Bahrain of February 2011.

Report: Israeli model underlies militarization of U.S. police | The Raw Story | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

The extreme militarization of American police forces has been brought to public attention by the tactics employed against Occupy protesters, which often appear more appropriate to counter-terrorism operations than to the control of non-violent protest. According to investigative journalist Max Blumenthal, however, the proper term for this ruthless suppression of dissent should be “Israelification.”

JOHN TIMONEY | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

This just might be the biggest dirt bag to wear a badge today. With his tactics against protests from New York to Philly to Miami, John Timoney has turned every police department he has ran into a garden variety Weirmacht. After what he did in Miami, however, he and many of his officers should be on the inside of a jail cell, but instead he is giving advice to other police departments on how to deal with protestors.

John Yates , Bahrain Police chief, is an IDIOT! | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

A UK-based Bahraini activist has criticised former Scotland Yard counter-terrorism chief John Yates after he suggested
he felt safer in protest-riven Bahrain than he did in London. .....

London-based Bahraini pro-democracy campaigner Ali Mushaima warned that there could be no guarantees for the Formula 1 teams' safety if the race goes ahead.

Mr Mushaima, 29, has been on hunger strike since April 4 and has spent the last two nights protesting outside the US Embassy in London's Grosvenor Square.

He said: "The people are very angry. I don't think that the area will be safe.

"If the Bahraini people don't feel safe in their country, they cannot give any foreign people guarantees to be safe when Formula 1 comes to Bahrain.

"The Bahraini people are peaceful. However, if Formula 1 comes to Bahrain, I don't know what will happen - but I don't think everything will be peaceful."

Tortured Justice - By Brian Dooley

Tortured Justice - By Brian Dooley | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

...

The regime touts that "leading international legal, police and other experts" that have been shipped in "to advise on ... practical reforms," as Minister for Human Rights Fatima Al Balooshi told the U.N. Human Rights Council. These experts include John Yates, a former assistant commissioner to the London Metropolitan Police Service, and John Timoney, a former police chief in Miami and Philadelphia.

Some in Bahrain's government may be sincere about reform, but the gap between rhetoric and reality is huge. A new police code of conduct declares "a zero tolerance policy on torture and any other type of mistreatment" and that "force shall be not be used except when absolutely necessary or when it is used in self-defense in accordance with the law." But according to the young men from the village and others I met, these reforms are no more than empty words.

Yates resigned from Scotland Yard in shame over British police complicity in phone-hacking and started work with the Bahrain ruling family in December. He believes the pro-democracy demo’s were not “… organized protests, it’s just vandalism, rioting on the streets”
