IOCCO: Police 'reckless' for using terrorism powers on journo sources

Do not like the use of the word reckless as this implies it was accidental when it fact it was wilful and deliberate. Also note how they talk about new guidelines as if this wasn't an issue before.

If gov't is to have these powers then there must be appropriate responsibility and accountability to go along with them, a lot of the unofficial access stuff would be immediate dismissal in a private company so should at least be the same for police etc. if not with associated criminal charges.
