The people that committed violence here are the criminals.
The stupid offender did nothing violent. For his non-violent crime the UK police probably broke down one or two doors, frightened women and children then forced the offender into a van, took him to the police station then took him to court.
In the court he was forced into a dock, tried, found guilty then taken away by force again and imprisoned forcibly for probably sixteen and a half months.(UK prisoners commonly only serve half their sentence - the reason and this is hilarious - the jails are all too full.)
So who are the violent ones here? Never mind morality judge on the harm done.
No No No You all don't get it. It does NOT mean YOU or any individual will be able to use this law. It's only for THEM to use it against you. Here's the scenario - You are accused of a crime - the police come, they assault you, they kidnap you and they put you in jail. New evidence is found you are cleared and found to be innocent. Does anyone then go and arrest the policemen that assaulted you, kidnapped you and then falsely imprisoned you? No of course not - they were only doing their job - right - right that's what the concentration camp guard said. The Stones were right 'all police are criminals'. It's a requirement of their job - they believe in violence. Similarly the powers that be - the MPAA etc or their lackeys will be the ONLY people installing root kits.
Well pick-pockets do of course. I'm pretty sure it must have been a thief that invented them. Let's see - I'm a man - I have something like 8-10 pockets in trousers, shirts, jackets that I wear - I know - I'll put all my precious stuff together
in one place where it can all get stolen/lost/thrown in the trash at once - Brilliant. Instead of spreading the plastic and the notes around different pockets and putting the vital stuff next to my even MORE VITAL organs where I can feel anybody trying to interfere with it.
Hahaha - you have to fall over laughing. At £100 a gig which generally last 3-5 hours INCLUDING transport time the STRUGGLING 19 year old is getting £20 an hour. 4 gigs a week gives the national average wage. No, the people struggling are the amateurs who cannot get a gig, cannot land any work and filesharing is not even an option with their work. You all need to get real.
