I'm just thinking for the amount of time and energy it took to put the vicious hat wearing stick guy on TV, they either had no other material, or they want to do kind of an underhanded exposee on how fucking stupid the police are. Also if that picture of me taking a shit wearing a fez ever hits the internet, I'm glad I'm in the US.

England is a fucking cancer.

Gotta love the question the hostess poses at the end "WE WANT YOUR OPINION. NOT ON WHETHER OR NOT THE POLICE HAVE GONE TOO FAR SINCE OBVIOUSLY THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE, BUT ON WHAT IDEAS YOU HAVE TO HELP THEM GO EVEN FARTHER."

Ban guns they said.

Ha ha!

I'm dubious they actually do this, and it's not a scheme they tried. The point is that police everywhere monitor social networking.

It is absolutely insane though.

Well at least now I don't have to worry about anyone stabbing the internet.

I wonder what people do in the UK when someone breaks into their house?

Wikipedia states "the victim must lie motionlessly on the floor, only breathing the bare minimum whilst awaiting assistance. Robbers are easily startled and so you must not make eye contact or make sudden moves, and only speak in soft tones.

It is noted by our script that you are accessing this page from a UK IP address. Please lie motionlessly on the floor, pending our inquiry team."

Braver men have been known to use bad language, and meeker ones resort to sarcasm, but in the end if always leads to getting stabbed.

You know who else used a hatchet in a public space?

"Next on Sky TV, in the aftermath of the the riots, the question is being asked, why don't young people respect the law anymore? We talk to three experts who will put forward a variety of racist, classist and ageist arguments and debate weather beatings or tear gas is the solution going forward."

Rubber bullets and water cannons, and an advancing wall of polycarbonate shields.

Seriously, when the riots were occurring they had self declared experts explaining that water cannons work because nobody likes rain, do they? And they use them to cool the crowd at festivals, so they can't hurt.

These are minors they are going after. It is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 (I believe), to posses any kind sharp cutting tool or weapon.

They outlawed guns too, and made it so that only the 'responsible adults' could own/handle the other most deadly objects. By their laws, it's a perfectly acceptable thing for them to arrest these juveniles for this. They have the evidence for it.

And personally, I think it's probably the smart thing to do, to monitor social networks like this. It would be one thing if these were pictures they stole off the minor's computer, but entirely different because they're posting these publically on the internet. It doesn't fall under any kind of "search and seizure" laws, because it's public.

Reading up, it's really confusing. A lot of people believe that any small, non-locking penknife is legal, but it sounds like any blade can be a problem if they decide it is.

Looks like my trusty penknife has to be replaced with a bottle opener.

Comeuppance
(Paraphrased):"If they're holding knives at home, they might take them out into public."

Christ, guys. I would think you would be doing anything you can to avoid persecuting thought crime.

Nice public school boys who's parents know solicitors? I'm sure they'll get right on that.
