Are we all equal under the Law ?

Today we see two
events, and last week a series of events, all reported in the press, but with very
different levels of equality.

 

Event
1
.

Four Britons (Muslims) detained on the
war-torn border between 
Somalia and Kenya three weeks ago have returned to the UK.

Upon arrival at Heathrow the men were
immediately taken into custody under the Terrorism
Act
– but then released several hours later.

A Metropolitan
Police spokeswoman said: “The men, all in their 20s and from the
London area, were taken to a west London police station where they are currently
detained. They have not been arrested.”

However, they
were released from police custody shortly before
4pm

The
pictures in the Sky news report show a Somali Islamic Courts fighter, although
there is no public evidence that these men were fighters, or that they were just
visiting family and were escaping the war torn region following the Ethiopian invasion.


 

Event
2.

A former British
National Party election candidate has admitted stockpiling explosives, 
Rocket Launchers, Chemicals and a nuclear biological suit (NBC) for what he believes will be a future civil war in
Britain.

Robert Cottage,
49, pleaded guilty to possessing explosives on the first day of his trial at
Manchester Crown Court.

His wife said he
often boasted of wanting to shoot Mr Blair and Lib Dem peer Lord Greaves, the
court was told.

He
was charged with possessing explosives. Lots of evidence here, as being shown
in court, but the Sky news report shows no pictures at all.  No pictures of kitchens where the explosives
were made, or the cupboards where it was stored etc etc etc.


Last
week Event
3

A
series of letter bombs explode at the DVLC, the offices of the accounting firm
where congestion charges are processed, and the offices of the company that
runs the congestion charge on behalf of TfL. 

Absolute
terror amongst the recipients and colleagues of those letter bombed but we are
told by the ACPO at a press conference introduced thus, “M
y name is Anton Setchell and I am the
National Coordinator for Domestic Extremism, My role does not cover terrorism”.

The
press were shown and told
by
ACC Anton Setchell “I am now able to release two highly edited photographs
which I hope will help the public understand what we are dealing with”.

Conclusion:

  • Do nothing except be a Muslim
    escaping a war zone = Terrorist Act
  • Be middle English and Stockpile
    explosives = possession charges
  • Actually send and
    explode bombs = Domestic Extremism

No equality of action here.
 

Unless we can see an equality of action by Government, Police and Press, then I
think that Abu
Bakr’s claim
that
Britain is now an anti Muslim police state is spot on. 

To date this Government,
Press and the ACPO have shown by their actions that they have made the decision that terrorism is only capable of
being wrought by Muslims.

Politicians and the Police are judged not by what
they say, but by what they do.
