Not a favourite blog site of mine but this is worth watching.
Clearly the man being interviewed has some extreme views, views that I don't
share, but he did not incite violence (the police officer effectively concedes
that), and therefore did not break the law.
The officer goes on to almost threaten the man with arrest if he repeated his
actions. What law is being broken? Yes a bit of paranoia is displayed but that
is one of the beauties of freedom of speech, he is allowed to be paranoid.
Is this a step on the slippery path to George Orwell's fantasy? There is a
strong movement today in this country that believes this government is hell
bent on reducing freedoms.
