run by tyrants who can't stand anyone not doing what they're told; not being a good, submissive little subject. Head to the Texas Partisan for some history on Philip Luty, and then to here to read of what the Brit government(miserable statist bastards that they are) have done to him
His home had been raided by a task force of Interpol and the Portuguese equivalent of the FBI’s counter-terrorism squad. They had specifically been asked to do so by Britain’s MI-5 as part of an investigation surrounding Mr. Luty. Some cyber-sleuthing among webmasters revealed that an RKBA-friendly (Right to Keep and Bear Arms) web guru had been contacted by Phil via his brother and asked to take the website down and wipe it. Phil had once again been scooped up by the British authorities, but under the newly modified anti-terror laws, had been able to do so without notifying anyone for weeks. After being pressured by friends and family, the Metropolitan Police finally only admit that Phil was arrested (on a date still not revealed) for “incitement of crimes” via his website, but would not provide a specific charge against him or any examples of what crimes or incitements to which they were referring.
At this time, there is no address to which to send positive correspondence to Phil, as the police who hold him refuse to say anything more, including where he is held.
Mr. Luty has cancer; anyone think he'll received any of the 'compassion' a Libyan mass-murderer got?
I used to think I'd love to see Scotland and England; now, I'm half afraid to go; say the wrong damn thing and get reported, or be seen looking at a 'wrong' website and you could wind up disappearing the way Luty did, with a long time before anyone can find out what happened to you.
Paranoid? Maybe; considering what the Brit government is like nowadays, I don't think so. And if you don't think there are a lot of politicians and law enforcement weenies here who'd like to have the same kind of powers, and be able to stomp on us the same ways, you haven't been paying attention.
