UK: Man Who Fell Off Couch Laughing at TV Show Ends Up Pepper Sprayed, Arrested

Fox News

June 11, 2008

A British man who was so amused with BBC1’s “Have I Got News for You” that he fell off his couch in a fit of laughter was not so happy when it got him arrested and pepper sprayed.

Christopher Cocker, 36, collapsed on the floor after laughing at a joke on TV, but his neighbor who heard the thud thought something bad had happened and called the police, the Daily Mail reported on Wednesday.

According to police, Cocker initially was cooperative but quickly became “aggressive” when asked his name and personal information. Cocker tried to shut his door on the officers, at which point he was pepper sprayed through a crack in the door.

Cocker then was handcuffed, arrested and taken to court, the Daily Mail reported. An unidentified police spokesman told the Mail that, given Cocker’s aggression, they acted appropriately.

“Within the circumstances, we feel we used reasonable force,” the officer told the Mail.

Cocker, of Blackburn, England, eventually pleaded guilty to resisting a police officer and was given a conditional discharge for six months following the May 20 incident, the Mail reported.

Cocker is shocked at the outcome of what he describes as minding his own business.

“I can’t believe it — I was thrown in the back of a police van before being stripped naked and put in a cell,” Cocker told the Mail. “I was handcuffed behind my back and my ankles bound with plastic ties before six of them carried me to the van.”

Cocker told the Mail he never thought he would end up in court for laughing at his favorite comedian.

 

’Baghdad-style’ checkpoints in US capital

In a move that critics have compared to the security clampdown in Baghdad, police are stopping motorists travelling through the main thoroughfare of Trinidad, a neighbourhood near the National Arboretum in the city’s northeast section.

Drivers’ identification are checked and those who didn’t have a “legitimate purpose” in the area, such as a church visit or doctor’s appointment, are turned away.

The checkpoints were set up after eight people were killed in the city last weekend.

Jackboot Stormtroopers Roam New York Subways

Jackboot Stormtroopers Roam New York Subways
Armoured police toting MP5 machine guns begin patrols of transit system in name of fighting terror

Teams of police armed with submachine guns, body armor and bomb-sniffing dogs are to begin patrolling New York subways today in an effort to “prevent terrorism”.

The special bomb teams known as “Torch Teams” will consist of six officers and a dog will patrolling all platforms and trains in 12-hour shifts.

The cops will cary huge MP5 submachine guns that are usually used by Navy seals and FBI hostage-rescue teams.

ABC eyewitness news has a video report here.

he move comes after a 50 percent increase in a homeland security grant was announced earlier this year, translating to $153 million.

“The show of force will no doubt make many riders feel safer, although some weren’t sure how much of a difference it will make.” reports ABC.

If you believe six storm troopers pointing massive machine guns at passengers makes them feel safer I’ve got a bridge I want to sell you.

“They will look similar to the NYPD’s heavily armed hercules teams, which have showed up guarding city landmarks since the 9/11 attacks.” ABC reminds us, slipping in the now ubiquitous 9/11 reference point, in case you’d forgotten that evil muslim terrorists want you dead.

Meanwhile CBS tells us “In this age of heightened security, commuters and keen canines will share the underground world of mass transit.”

Though the “Torch Teams”, presumably so called because they “shine a light” on evil terror in the dark and dangerous underground, are officially the first of their kind, the idea was road tested in late 2005 with TSA VIPER squads patrolling mass transit facilities in major cities conducting searches and checking ID’s.

“The so-called “Visible Intermodal Protection and Response” teams — or VIPER teams — will patrol Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor and Los Angeles rail lines; ferries in Washington state; bus stations in Houston; and mass transit systems in Atlanta, Philadelphia, Washington and Baltimore.” reported the AP.

The move coincided with a federal judge’s ruling

that police had a constitutional right to randomly search passengers’ bags on the New York City subway to deter terrorist attacks.

Though the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution prohibits searches without probable cause, the judge declared searches to be only a “minimal intrusion” of privacy.

Presumably the same gross violations of the Fourth will be within the remit of the new “torch teams” and you will be treated as a terrorist suspect and be forced to comply with their orders for your own safety.

The pretext for these jackboot subway patrols came in October 2005

when authorities in New York announced a major terror alert on the underground.

Police temporarily shut down parts of the transit system after a soda bottle filled with a substance resembling the household cleaner Drano was found near an Amtrak ticket counter, the announcement said.

However, it emerged that there was never any corroboration of any terror threat, merely some rumor about it having originated in Iraq

“the plot to bomb city subways with remote-controlled explosives has not been corroborated after days of investigation, law-enforcement officials said Sunday amid an easing sense of concern.”

This did not seem to matter as all the key phrases, “bombs”, “subway” “New York” “Terrorists” “Iraq” “Afghanistan” and “Al Qaeda” steamrolled the incident into becoming a brand new terror alert.

The random bag searches ensued. Even small children with pink My Little Pony bags were considered possible terrorists.

Everyone can see that this activity is absurd and contemptible, and that is the point. We are being acclimatized to consider this as normal and it’s working, the typical reaction is simply, “oh well that’s the way it has to be in order for everyone to be safe”. The lazy and selfish reaction to this climate of fear is severely damaging our society, the masses are sleepwalking towards a police state, they see it, but it doesn’t register.

The VIPER and Torch teams have nothing to do with preventing terrorism, they are there to get people to cower and accept they are under control. There has been no new intelligence indicating that terrorists are interested in targeting transportation modes, these programs are rolled out regardless.

Perhaps the subway stormtroopers will start taking a leaf out of the books of Canadian police and start
tasering passengers who try to avoid paying fares.

Or perhaps they will demand middle aged women present ID or arrest those evil terrorists caught donating travel tokens to people without the right change.

This is textbook, mechanized, classic tyranny.

The federal government has ensured that the very same people who grope pregnant women and make 90-year-old men remove their shoes in airports are now going to be on American streets and subways.

Only through constant activism, lobbying and vigilance can we escort martial law away from American shores and live peacefully in a society where we do not cower in fear of the armed security guard barking orders at us when simply walking down the street, “citizen, show me your papers.”
