British Police Don’t Know Difference Between MP3 Player and Gun

February 13, 2008

[Normally, I stay away from politics on this blog, but this one is just over the top]

It seems that the British were taking notes when they invaded Germany in the 1940s — it’s time to throw civil liberties to the wind and throw people in jail for nothing, just in case they might try something later.  A man was arrested, fingerprinted, and DNA tested because the police are too blind to tell the difference between a gun and an MP3 player.  Additionally, once they realized they had made fools of themselves, they couldn’t even offer a proper apology.  Oh, and in case anyone was missing it, they tracked him on CCTV cameras the whole way.  It wouldn’t quite be a police state if we couldn’t watch everyone at every second, now would it?
