Chief constable warns against ‘drift towards police state’ | UK news | The Guardian
The battle against extremism could lead to a “drift towards a police state” in which officers are turned into “thought police”, one of Britain’s most senior chief constables has warned. [...] It is politicians, academics and others in civil society who have to define what counts as extremist ideas, he says. [...] He stressed he supported new counter-terrorism measures unveiled by the government last week, including bans on alleged extremist speakers from colleges. Fahy said government, academics and civil society needed to decide where the line fell between free speech and extremism. Otherwise, he warned, it would be decided by the security establishment, so-called “securocrats”, including the security services, government and senior police chiefs like Fahy. &! see Twitter & FB & GitHub now (have to comply with regional/country specific censorship et al - ie Germany got laws against the display and public use of Nazi symbols - tcrn.ch/1w62DmH
