UK: Wie CCTV "Terroristen" produziert

Die Londoner Polizei, neu ermächtigt durch den Terrorism Act, ist eifrig bei der Suche nach Terroristen. Da diese sich aber leider nicht deutlich als solche zu erkennen geben, wird nach suspekten Verhaltensmustern unter den überwachten Menschen gesucht. Die Definition von suspekten Verhalten könnte man dabei als "eigenwillig" und die Folgen für die Betroffenen als "katastrophal" bezeichnen.

[...]
They found my behaviour suspicious from direct observation and then from watching me on the CCTV system;
· I went into the station without looking at the police officers at the entrance or by the gates;
· two other men entered the station at about the same time as me;
· I am wearing a jacket "too warm for the season";
· I am carrying a bulky rucksack, and kept my rucksack with me at all times;
· I looked at people coming on the platform;
· I played with my phone and then took a paper from inside my jacket.

[...]

Under current laws the police are not only entitled to keep my fingerprints and DNA samples, but according to my solicitor, they are also entitled to hold on to what they gather during their investigation: notepads of arresting officers, photographs, interviewing tapes and any other documents they entered in the police national computer (PNC). So even though the police consider me innocent there will remain some mention (what exactly?) in the PNC and, if they fully share their information with Interpol, in other police databases around the world as well. Isn't a state that keeps files on innocent persons a police state? This erosion of our fundamental liberties should be of concern to us all. All men are suspect, but some men are more suspect than others (with apologies to George Orwell).
