Post Post subject: lord mackenzie: arrests show democracy working ! Reply with quote

This is what a Labour peer, lord mckenzie, was saying on the midday news today, concernign the folks arresteed and released in Birmingham. he was saying, no this isn't bad to Muslims, it's actually democracy working, because the detention period was kept under a court's control and in the end they were released.

For his misleading point to be correct, it would have to be the case that the whole experience of being arrested has had zero effect on the folks' subsequent lives whatever.

We can bet the media won't be checking to make sure it has zero effect on them being allowed to visit America. This is something a writer on an arrest experience on the London Bombs day mentioned too. Never in all the coverage of wonderful America liberating the world and imposing democracy on us all give or take the odd death, has any query been made against America's immigratioon froms thst say "have you ever been arrested or convicted?" in breach of the International Convention ofn Civil and Political Rights America is supposed to be signed up to.
