Arms Fair Policing Criticised - They're using anti-terrorism laws
"Civil rights campaigners have condemned the use of anti-terrorism measures against protesters at Europe's biggest arms fair in London.

Civil rights group Liberty said it hoped to go to the High Court to challenge the decision by police to ban protesters under the Anti-Terrorism Crime and Security Act...

"Some individual police officers used sections (1) and (2) of the Terrorism Act to arrest some protesters where they deemed it necessary," a spokeswoman told BBC News Online...

On Wednesday morning Liberty's director Shami Chakrabarti will...tell...(the Police Superintendents Association that) senior police officers have been used as political pawns by the Home Office in using anti-terrorism legislation against protesters,"

So then.....anti-terrorism laws will ONLY be used against suspected terrorists then? Thanks Mr Blair...

1. and only bad people will be flagged in the capps program

Bush will also kill the economy with CAPPS.

They'll probably put Katherine Harris and DBT in charge of deciding who's a danger to fly.

...at least that's the precedent we have seen here.
