1) They call themselves ‘the law’ because they think they ARE the law.
2) If ever you challenge any police employee’s authority, they will pursue you until they stick something on you, true or false
3)The metropolitan police had just got themselves a new boss, keen to ‘stamp’ his authority on his own people (who leaked to the guardian) and on the unruly press

Anyone who knows the basic facts above is not surprised by the actions of the metropolitan police, but by the the exclamations of surprise from the metropolitan elite.

If you’re really interested in theory of games you might try reading some of the excellent books on the subject.
