[News] Everyone is a Terrorist Now, Even Gary

Hash: SHA1

March of the dustbin Stasi: Half of councils use anti-terror laws to watch
people putting rubbish out on the wrong day 

,----[ Quote ]
| More than half of town halls admit using anti-terror laws to spy on families 
| suspected of putting their rubbish out on the wrong day. 
| Their tactics include putting secret cameras in tin cans, on lamp posts and 
| even in the homes of 'friendly' residents. 
| The local authorities admitted that one of their main aims was to catch 
| householders who put their bins out early. 


McKinnon suffers further legal setback in extradition fight

,----[ Quote ]
| McKinnon faces seven charges of hacking into US government and military 
| systems during 2001 and 2002. The former sys admin has never contested the 
| charges, but argues he was motivated by curiosity about supposed US 
| government suppression of knowledge about UFO-harvested technologies and 
| contact with aliens rather than anything more malign.    
| He denies causing widespread damage and has expressed incredulity as the 
| suggestion of US prosecutors that he was "the biggest military hacker of all 
| time".  


Myspace bans McKinnon as latest deadline looms

,----[ Quote ]
| Gary's music video, Only a Fool, had stormed the Myspace video charts, 
| reaching number three the last time we checked, not three days after it was 
| posted.  
| His application for a judicial review had sought to prevent his extradition 
| on the grounds that it would be cruel to send him, as a sufferer of 
| Asperger's Syndrome, to a US jail. The government should secure him the right 
| to serve time in a British prison if he was found guilty in a US court, said 
| the application.    



Pools in security lather over shampoo

| "Pool guests who bring these items must allow them to be opened and
| inspected. Security personnel will smell them to see whether they are safe or
| not," a separate report posted on the city's sport bureau's website said
| (www.shsports.gov.cn).


Elderly woman prohibiting from photographing empty swimming pool "to prevent

,----[ Quote ]
| An 82-year-old woman in Southampton, UK was told she couldn't take photos of
| an empty wading pool because she might be a paedophile. Because, you know,
| anything that children touch regularly becomes part of their souls, and if a
| paedophile looks at those objects, it's just like sexually assaulting a
| child.
