The UK, having made domestic surveillance into an art form, is now at leisure to babysit your children.
No, really. They insist: Parents banned from supervising their own children in playgrounds… in case they are paedophiles.
Supervising children’s every waking moment is the natural next step in a nation where they are subject to death panels, handguns are sufficiently outlawed so they have moved on to knives and big sticks, they are prosecuted for fighting back against burglars who enter their homes and cameras scour the land like the eye of Sauron, watching for anti-social behavior. Over 10,000 cameras in London alone, which do almost nothing for actual crime. So they’re focusing on thoughtcrime, which can be prosecuted without video.
It’s the nanny state. Literally.
Well, that is bad, but I took a closer look at the “fighting back against burglars” link and saw this.
A council official’s son who allegedly stabbed two burglars breaking into his mother’s home has been charged with murder.
Omari Roberts was hailed a hero after disturbing 17-year-old Tyler Juett and his accomplice, 14.
But yesterday, the 23-year-old appeared in court accused of killing Juett and wounding the younger raider with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
The CPS said it decided to charge him for using ‘excessive and gratuitous force’ when the pair tried to burgle the home of Jacqueline McKenzie-Johnson in Nottingham in March.
Criminals have more rights than law-abiding citizens in the UK, because everyone has to be the same. Moral distinctions make people feel bad, so the criminals must be lifted up and the law-abiding must be pushed down. Everyone is equal, right?
