Remember this video on YouTube of the police harrassing some guy doing street photography.

And then this video of some police officer stealing stuff from an activist and refusing to reveal his identity number

Well it looks like soon it will be an offence, punishable by up to ten years imprisonment, to publish or elicit information about any police constable "of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism".

Indymedia covers the civil liberties implications here, and luckily we have FitWatch on our side to reveal information about Forward Intelligence Teams, cops who harass protesters.

I'm not really one for protesting against things in reallife outwith the internet, except for the odd Anti-War protest, but there is something entertaining about the police intimidation videos on YouTube. Its kind of like that TV show Outnumbered, but with arguing with the polis instead of arguing with kids.
