Those Green activists aren't exactly what I'd call organized crime. I am surprised the police would waste an undercover officer on them, you would think standard surveillance would be enough.

 

Don't get me wrong, I think these environmentalists are usually crazy, but their intentions aren't exactly sinister.

Honestly, it seems like he was sent in there in the same way that young cops were sent into student orgs bacin the 70's in America where they were sent in and basically perpetrated the acts to create the threat the government wanted.

 

Admittedly I'm probably speaking out of my rear

I think it's more a question of methods than intentions. :lol:

 

Anyone who has seen 28 days later or that Fringe episode should know that sometimes these guys can do some major, unintentional damage on their crusade, even when they are more or less rational. Still, gives the impression the Met isn't hurting for resources if they can dedicate an officer to undercover work in a case like that. >_<

You're a cheery wee bugger, Nep. Have I ever said that?

Why is the Met spending resources infiltrating a bunch of enviro-hippies?! What kind of horrific deeds do they think theyll commit? Liberating cows?

Me, I'd call shutting down a power station quite serious. Not exactly 9/11 :) but serious enough in monetary terms.

Obviously you have never read Rainbow Six, otherwise you would know that their end game is the destruction of the human race, with the exception of other enviro hippies.

I see a movie... Leonardo as the young idealistic straight out of the academy cop who is sent to infiltrate the Green Movement and is forced to re evaluate his life, Karl Urban as the militant, trying to push the group further than it's willing to go, Monica Bellucci as the De facto leader and inspiration of the group who was wrongly imprisoned and considered a martyr for her role in a demo where two members were killed a decade ago.

Unfortunantly, I have read that rubbish book. It was on a ferry and I was bored to tears.

yeah it's not very good.

 

It's Clancy, what did you expect ? :) Although to be fair RSR and HRO are decent.

Clancy's early stuff is OK, but he's kind of gone Drizzt-tastic lately.

 

I confess I'm not really clear on what the plan for this plot was exactly. Nor what the Met were looking for from the infiltration. He doesn't seem to have done much. Maybe it was a training exercise?

 

I don't think it's entirely mental to suspect the Green movement. Their biggest bugbears are transport and energy, and they think the human race is doomed to near extinction unless there is a revolution in the former. If I agreed with their basic logic I'd be a bloody danger to a power station.

But unlike Salvatore, he seems to have given up, if not in time, then at least in general. :)

 

(Edit: Oh great, he just came out with a new book after ~5 years, didn't he? ****)

and punched the giant red "RESET!" button while he was at it IIRC. So all his characters are played by different actors!

 

Any movement like this can be dangerous, but they don't strike me as so dangerous they need infiltration.

Of course everyone was incredibly complacent about Jifascist terror until it exploded - no pun intended.

According to the story the problem seems to be that he did too much.

 

Agreed, at least according to the story put out by the Greenies...

 

Whatever it seems fairly certain that the guy is a prick. He either ratted out his mates or his colleagues.
