Pathetic Police Arrest Man For Organising Water Fight On Blackberry And Facebook

by | 16th, August 2011

SO tough are the police in David Cameron’s Bullingdon Britain that a 20-year-old man from Colchester in Essex has been arrested for allegedly arranging a big water fight via BlackBerry Messenger and Facebook. The man is charged with “encouraging or assisting in the commission of an offence“.

An Essex policeman addresses media:

“In the light of recent events, we would have to be careful that [the planned water fight] is not all that it seems.”

Are the police observing Blackberry Messenger and Facebook – or are the big US corporations working with the police to profile their customers?

Cameron says he will “look at whether it would be right to stop people communicating via these websites and services when we know they are plotting violence, disorder and criminality”.

Because a confident society stops communications. The police were not there when they were needed but after the riots have strolled about looking tough., bashing down doors and making arrests in orchestrated displays of State power.

The fightback starts here!” says super David Cameron. Hurrah! We will fight back against a few hundred pretty badly organised looters – many of whom were too stupid to wear a mask and conceal their identity as they stole a telly, sweets, hats, magazines, face creams and bottled of water.

Cameron’s cops are the underdogs. Sure, they have the guns, the cars, the personnel, the cash, the law and the jobs on their side. But the enemy have youth and a hooded top from JD sports. And they have Blackeberry Messenger. The State only has GCHQ, spies, goons, armour, Facebook and Blackberry on-message, CCTV, the Army, masses of data on all of us and  a sense of decency.

Can the police win? Well, if it rains and the youth can’t be bothered to loot any more, maybe…
