Re: What about me then?

The UK doesn't follow the "fruit of the poisoned tree" philosophy in the same way. Sometimes I think it would be better if we did.

I suppose the point is that if the police did something illegal then they may well be making other stuff up too. The "poison tree" is one way of keeping them honest. I can sympathise that the police breaking the law can be more than the "technicality" they might claim. The police are supposed to be a bunch of professionals so they shouldn't be screwing up le this.

On the other hand letting a criminal off when they've clearly done something wrong..........
