Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill

Postby stbrides » Thu Jul 25, 2013 10:59 am

I have just been made aware of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill.

Like many Bills it appears with apparent good intentions but as we know such Bills are often wolves in sheeps' clothing.

This will put an end to any demonstration in public.

s33 Directions excluding a person from an area
(2) The first condition is that the constable has reasonable grounds to suspect that the behaviour of the person in the locality has contributed or is likely to contribute to—
(a)members of the public in the locality being harassed, alarmed or distressed, or
(b)the occurrence in the locality of crime or disorder.

As indicated here.

Public Spaces Protection Orders as contained in the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill would provide local authorities with unprecedentedly wide-ranging powers over public spaces. As currently drafted, they could be used by councils for actions including:
banning spitting, banning homeless or young people from parks, banning begging or rough sleeping, banning smoking in outdoor public places. Such newly created crimes would then be punished with on-the-spot fines, which in some local authorities are issued by private security guards working on commission.

More theft from the public, parking fines and council tax is not enough.

What's the problem? None of these Acts/Statutes/etc are valid or apply to anyone with half a brain. They can make whatever rules they like for their little corporation, none of them apply to anyone who is not a member of said club. And, if you think you may have inadvertantly applied and been accepted for membership of their insane association then I recommend you resign at your earliest convenience, so as not to be subject (excuse the pun) to such insanity.

This legislation could be seen as just another facet of the authorities' extortion racket.
It is just another variation of parking notices and speeding cameras.
If it were simply this, it is nothing more than we have come to expect.

The real issue as I see it, is the authorities perceive the need to rack up control of the people.
To strip the people of yet more liberties. Virtually of all liberty in a public space.
This will make any protest or demonstration, indeed anything the authorities chose, illegal.
The masses will understand and they will be in fear. What a freeman does will not matter.
TV licences, council tax, vehicle excise duty and so on affect the individual.
If you do or don't pay will not affect anyone else.
This is designed to control the masses.
Why do the authorities feel it necessary to put in place legislation that has the potential to create more of a police state than we already have?
Are they expecting civil unrest and protests they need to clamp down on hard?

this article,may clarify the situation,that most,are either
unaware of,or are to ignorant to accept.
If the machine of government is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law.
