New campaign to urge Londoners to report suspicious activity - April 6th 2009, 05:13 AM

The campaign:

http://www.met.police.uk/campaigns/c...rism/index.htm

An article not really a retuable source, but it covers the topic points I want discussed:

http://boingboing.net/2009/03/24/lon...-reach-ne.html

Anyway, do you feel these ads are going to far? Another addition to a big brother nation? Are the ads appropriate?

I think that has a good purpose and ideas behind it, but I don't think it will work in practice.

People will take advantage of it, and I haven't seen a huge terrorist problem over there? I don't think that'd prevent it anyway - I think it'd keep officers busy searching peoples houses while they could be doing other things.

I've been seeing similar things in Vancouver the last couple weeks. On one side it will show a see through man in front of a door, and it says something to the effect of "Call a paranormal investigator", and on the other it shows a man trying to break into the door with a crowbar and says "Call us" (us being the RCMP). I don't know how effective they'll be. I think people who are already inclined to report suspicious activity will, and for those who aren't inclined to, seeing these posters probably won't change them too much.


Not around so much now that school's started

"Live a good life.
If there are gods and they are just,
then they will not care how devout you have been,
but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.
If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them.
If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life
that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."

It's not just London, they're everywhere here in Birmingham. I've got nothing against them except the one about watching the CCTV cameras. I'm quite paranoid about my surroundings when I'm in public and do tend to check out where the cameras are to stay in sight. Sometimes I just let me childish side take over and pretend I'm a spy!! I'd hate to think someone might report me for that.

Adz, that would like.. make me laugh if that happened. Way after you got out from being interrogated and stuff. "I was just acting like a spy!!" "Sure you were kid"

But yeah, that would be my main concern, people getting disrupted from their normal everyday business because someone decides to call on you for doing something slightly abnormal.

My biggest worry is what would count as suspicious? Two men were not allowed on a plane because they were said to have looked dodgy a few years ago. Unfortunately the Press has an irrational hatred towards Islam at the moment (and not just the Daily Mail which is a racist sheet of hate all the time) which means Muslims and possibly Sikhs are going to be in for it the most
