You'll feel safer after watching this video


A Londoner films with his mobile phone camera (with permission) his anti-terror stop and search. To be honest, I was quite surprised that this guy was allowed to film - but since it was in a public place, I suppose it is legal so long as he doesn't profit from the footage. One might expect at some future point some jurisdiction will come into place covering this nonsense under the official secrets act or something similar banning proles from even discussing it.


As far as I am concerned, this is utterly pointless and as helpful as the first police officer is, he just doesn't convince me this 25 minute stop-and-searches was useful.


I am even more appalled by the fact the second officer doesn't even provide identification! Albeit very unlikely, he could be a real live terrorist (if they exist) in a perfect anti-terror-officer disguise planting those oft advertised weapons of mass destruction in this poor chaps bag!


Welcome to Britain ladies and gentlemen!
