Politce admit infiltrating protests

Back when some of us alleged that police infiltrated protests, there were commenters who scoffed at what they called left-wing paranoia or worse. Now police have admitted they did just that, while claiming they don’t intend to do it any more.

I suspect it would take another season of protest for this tactic to return. Police in many places use provocateurs to help shape their narrative and the zeitgeist may have shifted again before this happens.
