Report: Undercover police had kids with activists

Britain's Guardian newspaper said Friday that two undercover police officers have fathered children with the activists they were spying on.
Key details were hazy but the revelations are the latest in a series of reports which has cast doubt on whether undercover police in the U.K. go too far in seeking to infiltrate environmental, animal rights and extremist groups.
British authorities are already preparing a report into the use of undercover officers after one of them caused a trial to collapse when his cover was blown.

The good news - the poor guy didn't have to spend his entire life with some leftist lunatic.
The bad news - even more occupy freeloaders were born.
Don’t you think that a limit should be set on the “depth” of spying?

What about the homo activists? Did the police spy on them, too?
Real life 007’s could have made watermelons all over the world.
Brings a whole new meaning to — screwed by “the man”...

Looks to me like when they were infiltrating them, they went all the way.

Yes, but they didn’t do as much of an in depth investigation

Those spies needed better cover or backup.
God, this is ridiculous.
Can you imagine the child custody fight? Well, given the UK, the kids belong to the mother and the father is doubly excluded for being a police man and basing the relationship on fraud.
