4. They identified the bloke in the queue from his Tweet

I've not read that blog but...
If he was giving away case details or sensitive police information then he has to take the bullet IMO. In anyother job depending on what you were writing about you could quite rightly expect to be dismissed let alone a written.
Anyway if he had some proof of genuine corruption, couldn't he have used wikileaks?
