UK Police: Merely Watching James Foley Beheading Video May Be an Act of Terrorism

Of course, British authorities are not going to pursue everyone who watches or disseminates the video, but threats combined with selective enforcement create a pretext that governments can exploit to set the benchmark for declaring any content whatsoever on the Internet to be extremist in nature and therefore off limits to the general public.

As we previously reported, UK authorities have acted to censor YouTube clips in the past, most notably in 2011 when the British government ordered YouTube to remove footage of the British Constitution Group’s Lawful Rebellion protest, during which they attempted to civilly arrest Judge Michael Peake at Birkenhead county court.

FK – How absurd the Brits have become, and we’re not far behind, even ahead in some areas.
