Police Raid on Tall Bloke

Tall Bloke reports that he was raided by UK police and his computers seized. Read his blog post for further details, including actions in the US involving WordPress. Also see Jeff Id here. It is not a coincidence that this story is reported first on these three blogs.

In an unrelated story, according to Richard Tol, IPCC has told its WG2 scientists that they are above the law on freedom of information.

    I hope all the speculation as to the identify of the leaker did not lead to this. I personally did not think such speculation was very clever.

      1) speculation here was very fact-free and underwhelming (this is why it was speculation). Nothing was posted that the police hadn’t considered

      2) please, I hope you are not implying that saying something caused something else to happen retrospectively. I have enough trouble with my wife with that particular superstition

      Craig, various bloggers are happy to use the e-mails, but not wishing to protect the provider of the emails. I think it was unwise to speculate. I say this even as I suggest what method the police use to track down this hacker.

    Two years on, it seems odd to think that a hacker would even have the same computers he had in early 2009, which is what the police seem to be assuming. I certainly would not.

      Judging from Tallbloke’s reaction to all this, I think they’re going to be disappointed. I think the DoJ is on a fishing expedition, and the English police are humoring them. But we’ll see.

        A lot of people have a knee-jerk-defer-to-authority-confess-all reaction to police. It sounds as if it was all very civil / non-threatening (credit to them for that) but just a hint of flashing blue light can have an effect, so worth a try.

      Craig,

      they would appear to be searching for any mail headers, addresses, ip addresses or anything else that might give a clue as to where FOIA sent his files and emails from or which might give a clue of any kind. The fact that they are only cloning his disks before returning the systems would seem to show that they are not after Tallbloke. Even if they may be suspicious they certainly are not showing anything.

      Just copying some of what I put on Anthony Watts site. The US Justice Dept involvement is, I suggest, also just on behalf of the Norfolk/Metropolitan police. As major servers are based in the USA the only way a foreign police force can get access to them and their records is via a US Warrant, undertaken by the DOJ on their behalf. This is a bilateral, country-to-country arrangement, Attorney-General to DOJ request with documentation etc.

      I originally noted that I thought this was just routine to complete the old and new enquiry, but the DOJ note to wordpress seems to indicate clearly that it is Climategate II emails only. Probably they already have all files from CA and other sites for Climategate I.

      Obviously, they have reason to believe that American law has been violated, and the UK authorities accept the premise. Nothing will come of asking what the reasons are here – how would we know. In time, it will come out. If you are suggesting that the US DOJ could not possibly have any justifiable reason to ask the UK government to act, then there’s nothing we can do for you.

          ‘whose communications’….perhaps I’ll add a question mark after the two words. Communications to and from climate scientists or any other persons and funded by public monies are not regarded as belonging to them and are regarded as open to public access under FOI unless otherwise excluded. If the emails are of a personal nature and non work related and not sent or accessed on public paid time that is a different matter, but I doubt that is what your comment referred to.

        UK “anti-terrorist” legislation is unbelievably draconian. There have been recent public reports of 15-year old being pounced upon by the police for taking snapshots of a military parade and it’s now pretty common for the police to regard anybody taking pictures of them as a “terrorist” under the meaning of the act.

        Similarly, anybody like TallBloke can be informed that they are a “suspected terrorist” (without any requirement of the police to say why) and be demanded to reveal any of their passwords the police require. It’s a serious criminal offence to refuse.

        The UK police, in particular the Metropolitan force have sucked up these, and many other, unparalleled powers and abused them in the most egregious fashion. They don’t seem to realise that people “consent” to the police having Stasi-like powers if it’s to protect them from bearded Jihadists. That soon evaporates when an armed plod jumps on them for taking a picture of their girlfriend outside Parliament which, by chance, has a policeman in shot.

          Tallbloke,
          Did the policemen mention a reason for impounding the computers? I can understand the data requests at WordPress — that would be the logical start of a trail back to “FOIA”. But I can’t imagine that your computer would have any relevant information not logged at WordPress, unless (a)you were in some sort of electronic contact with “FOIA”, or (b)you *are* “FOIA”. Given that you wrote at WUWT that the police told you that you were not a suspect, I don’t understand why they would want your hard drives. Unless, of course, they have no idea how blogs work. Or they lied.

        But an anonymous source posting on a blog – is publishing, protected by the first amendment here in the US. The Pentagon papers case involved violations of the Espionage Act and classified material, yet SCOTUS ruled 6-3 that the publishing ban be lifted. In this case we have private letters involved in an area of public policy and science – none of which is classified or otherwise sensitive to security. So an unauthorized information release (theft if you will) in the UK doesn’t in it self give the DOJ jurisdiction. I am wary of something untoward going on.

    “In an unrelated story, according to Richard Tol, IPCC has told its WG2 scientists that they are above the law on freedom of information.”

    It is related via what humans call irony. Richard Tol responded to my comment on WUWT in this fashion..

    “Richard Tol says:
    December 15, 2011 at 12:22 am
    @David
    “It appears that the IPCC’s confidentiality guidance document covers itself and cannot be disclosed. The IPCC intends to publish the first- and second-order drafts that are sent for expert and government review, the comments on those drafts, and the responses to those comments.

    There is a lot more material, including the selection and allocation of authors, the outline of the report, and the zeroth-order draft and comments, that the IPCC will try to keep off limits.”

    Thank you Richard, and you are quite helpfull. Your comment on what is not on “the list” is very cogent, but the operative word hear is it “appears’, and both you and Richard B have a very difficult time being percise, but apparently there is a percise IPCC “list” which we, the people of the world world who are or may be affected by every policy recommendation this unelected group of Blackbeards make, cannot see what this list consists of !! Now the Irony. Yet some private tallbloke in Britain was certainly not allowed to make a list for the police on what to provide them when they stormed into his private home and took his personal property, despite the fact that he recieves zero Govt funds and makes zero recommendations to change how governments around the world operate. And some posters here think this is fine and a boring matter, nothing to see here, just move along.

    Richard Tol based his original post on this statement, which both he and Richard Betts agree to be accurate “As to FoI, the “confidetiality guidance” has a “list” of things that will be made public and says that any and all other material will remain confidential. The TSU indicated that this was done on behalf of the “governments”

    I find these steps by the police somewhat frightening, marginally in contradiction with the presumption of innocence, and, from a rational viewpoint, illogical. If they truly investigated the leaks, they should surely start with a detailed investigation of all employees of the universities in question. I don’t mean just the whistleblower theory.

    There may also be straight skeptics among the computer admins or whoever. In my opinion, they still deserve a presidential medal for revealing all these pathological things that are going on in the climate “science” but if they violated the law, they should be still held accountable, before they get the medal, of course.

      really peetee.. You do not know this crowd very well. they have been accused of everything under the sun in the last ten years. they keep buggering on…this has not backfired…it has gained massive momentum…this publicity is is great..for all the wrong reasons…but they (we) will turn it to out advantage and come out stronger. Why? because as every skeptic knows, we will be proven to be on the right side of history. Skeptics are coming out of the closet. it is become safe because of the work of these brave souls…onward cristian soldiers …go forth ..the truth will prevail

    I find it difficult to see what would hope to be discovered by these actions. The climate-gate II emails were only a subset of what was accessed before, right? And Tallbloke has reported talking to them before. The FOIA seem to know what they are doing, and people much better qualified than me say it is not difficult to distribute things anonymously from, say, servers in Russia.

    Some public servants (and others) in the UK have, in the past, displayed worryingly low levels of technical competence in secure handling of computers and classified data. Tallbloke might want to double-check his hallway just in case some of the confiscated machines were lost before they reached his front door.

    Donna LaFramboise has a piece in the Financial Times about this subject today. It’s also linked on the front page of realclearpolitics.com, which means it will get a lot of exposure.
