Dragnet Policing

The Terrorism Act 2000 and 2006 especially are two pieces of draconian legislation that have resulted in upset, wrongful convictions and death for a large number of innocent people. Both national e.g. Irish and Cornish and ethnic minorities e.g. Muslims have been indiscriminately targeted, as well as others from minority groups, including civil rights campaigners.

Here is yet another story of where an innocent man has been hounded by the police on suspicion of being a terrorist, reinforcing the view that the UK police must have the best record in Europe for dragnet policing when it comes to counter terrorism.
