UK Undercover Enviro-Cop Case - the Plot Thickens

Bonnie reported earlier this week on the case of Mark Kennedy, an undercover cop who infiltrated green protest movements for 7 years. The Guardian has been covering the heck out of this, and there have been some interesting new developments brought up, and questions raised. From the ethical conundrum of Kennedy's sexual liaisons with protesters, through revelations about a second undercover officer, to activist Emily Apple's public rejection of Kennedy/Stone's apology—it's a pretty fascinating case.

Word is they may even make a movie out of the whole affair.
