    the funniest one was the police dealing ring that was going on in the Ministry of Sound, that only fell apart because one cop did so many drugs he ended up freaking out, turned to Christianity and then grassed up everyone else…

    I read in a grow mag about a stake out on a garage full of weed somewhere in london,when individuals tried to break in to said garage they were promptly arrested and all were found to be Police officers LOL

    the use of ravers’ photos may be more problematic from a legal POV but ASBO proceedings only need the civil level of proof – plus as I mentioned previously modern cameras often store accurate timecode of their pictures; then you get people bragging on message boards about how big the party was, and even admitting to crimes/vandalism there….

    This carelessness/arrogance – backed up with the evidence the cops have got with their own electronic surveillance; and witness statements from locals who complain about raves is plenty enough evidence for most British Courts…

    I have a link for a program that strips all this information from the photographs [mainly because it makes the filesizes substantially smaller for upload]

    if anyone is interested you will find it here:

    and dont be put off by the instructions – its fairly simple to use:wink:

    So if i ever post pics of parties what else would be best to remove so far i guess the info using the software above, reg plates, rig names/banners..

    anything else?

    Or is it just safer to never post party pics?

    best to not post pictures which have rig names, vehicle id plates and unique rig features on them TBH

    beyond that you would use the command [jhead – purejpg filename.ext ] to get rid of all the information bar the picture itself [it can reduce file size by up to half in some cases :crazy: certainly with my camera ]

    even then I’d try and have a chat with people from the rig and ask whether they are happy with any pics being circulated..

    since 2004 when the cops started doing the licensing busts… I have not uploaded any party photos I have taken anywhere (apart from events in legal venues like Lakota or the Red Star), but I have shared them with people from the crews on CD-rom or by uploading them manually to friends PC’s at an afterparty (others I print and put up on my wall)..

    If you get any pics of the Police behaving badly though make sure you send the whole lot to as many news agencies as possible. You might even get paid for them if you’re lucky.
