What the British police fear

This quote <a href="http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/12/04/police_photos/">taken from The Register</a> in Britain says a lot:


The fear, expressed within the ranks of senior police officers, is that a backlash against perceived heavy-handedness could lead to members of the public becoming more aware of their rights, less co-operative, and ultimately far more difficult to police. http://bit.ly/6T6DZJ

Did it really say that the fear of senior police officers is that <strong>the public will become more aware of their rights?</strong> Did you notice our quote from Thomas Jefferson that we've had at the top of our front page?
