UK Politicians Decide Police Shouldn't Have The Last Word In Taking Down Website

Over in the UK, it looks like the House of Lords has narrowly (one vote) struck down a proposed law that would allow the police to determine what online content they found objectionable concerning terrorism. Instead, police will need to go to a judge to first get approval in order to ask an ISP to remove content that they feel is dangerous. Is it really such a crazy idea to ask that there be some sort of official process and review when it comes to things like forcing content offline?
