‘Hvis du ikke har gjort noget, har du ikke noget at frygte’

Hvis du stadig tror det, har du ikke fulgt godt nok med. Denne mand blev f.eks. anholdt og tilbageholdt som terrorist, anklaget for den forfærdelige forbrydelse, det er at fotografere kloakdæksler.

Cory Doctorow skriver på Boing Boing:

Still think that if you’re innocent, you have nothing to fear from surveillance and control laws? Have a look at this news-video about Stephen Clarke, a man who was accused to taking pictures of sewer-gratings in Manchester and arrested. Though the police couldn’t find any photos of sewer-gratings on his phone (and even though “what a sewer grating looks like” isn’t a piece of specialized terrorist intelligence), he was held on suspicion of planning an act of terror, imprisoned for two days while the police searched his home, his phone and his computer. When they couldn’t find anything suspicious, they released him, but kept his DNA on file, as the biometric of someone who had been accused of plotting a terrorist act.

Jeg er stadig ikke helt med på, hvorfor det er så suspekt at fotografere kloakdæksler, men det har manden jo så heller ikke gjort. Men hans DNA har de stadig.
