Menwith Hill: Crap Arrest of the Week

C | 04.07.2007 22:41 | Anti-militarism | Sheffield

Two people were arrested at the 4th July Independence From America demonstration
at NSA Menwith Hill, one for wearing a shirt with the word "fuck" on it and one for protesting at the arrest.






















It has been reported here:

 http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/2007/07/375052.html

That he got a £80 fine under Section 5 of the Public Order Act:

"A person is guilty of an offence if he... displays any writing, sign or other visible representation which is threatening, abusive or insulting, within the hearing or sight of a person likely to be caused harassment, alarm or distress thereby.

"He who makes peaceful protest impossible will make violent revolution inevitable" is a quote from John F Kennedy.
I overheard the arresting officer suggest that 'children and families' in passing vehicles could be offended by the shirt! Perhaps if they were playing 'eye spy' something beginning with F and had unsually good eye sight.
