British police in Avon and Somerset conducted nighttime raids to arrest two men for anti-Muslim thought crime on twitter. Police say charges are pending under the anti-thought crimes, Public Order Act.
Police threatened more thought crimes charges and demanded that the public “stop and think about what they say on social media.”
This is the same Britain where Muslim immigrants are allowed ave Al-Qaeda flag in public and scream death threats at the British people with impunity.
Unbelievable. There’s really an “anti-thought crime” chapter of the Public Order Act? Someone please tell me this is not true.

GeneWatchUK | The UK Police National DNA Database
The police in Britain keep more DNA samples than any other country, per head of population. The US database is slightly larger in terms of total numbers. Nearly 10% of the UK’s population (about 6 million people) is on the National DNA database compared to Austria, which has the 2nd largest proportion of the population on its police database at just over 1%. Although the assumption is that by holding the DNA profiles of more individuals on the database, more crimes will be solved, there is no evidence to support this. However, evidence of abuse of the information held on the police database is increasing, including its use for controversial genetic research without consent.

Coming to America soon, or what?
I usually only cover stories in the U.S., but it’s just so silly and embarrassing that I had to share it. I guess some of the police in London must be American exchange cops.
London - A British policeman put his colleagues on alert as he investigated a “suspicious bright light” - only to find it was the moon, an in-house magazine for the police reported on Wednesday.
Police magazine reported that the hapless officer only realized his blunder after warning his fellow constables in Worcestershire, central England, that he might require back-up.
The magazine’s Dogberry column revealed: “While on night duty in Worcestershire by himself, a PC called up his sergeant to let him know that he was going up into the Clent Hills to investigate a ‘suspicious bright light’ that he could see shining from the other side of the hills.
“The call was for safety reasons as he might need back-up once he found the source.
“Twenty minutes later the PC called his sergeant back to reassure him that everything was ok and that he had found the source of the light.
“This diligent PC had in fact discovered the moon.”
While the gaffe was once known only to the unnamed policeman’s colleagues in the Worcestershire force, it has now been revealed to all 132 000 police rank-and-file officers in England and Wales who receive the magazine.
