The Met have charged the 18-year-old they busted for the anti-gay stickers. Mohammed Hasnath will face public order offences in court. Kids always need a cause and when you consider the socio-economic world, riled with religious fervour, that this teenager grew up in, his choices can be summed up in one word: loser.
The Guardian and every civil liberties group in the UK is up in arms. Why? The paper says "The Metropolitan police has bought Geotime, a security programme used by the US military, which shows an individuals movements and communications with other people on a three-dimensional graphic. It can be used to collate information gathered from social networking sites, satellite navigation equipment, mobile phones, financial transactions and IP network logs." So, everything you do on social networks, via your phone and stuff...
We assumed they were doing all of that already but nice this makes it all easy and really cool looking:) Fortunately for the police your average crook's really dim and might actually just check into the scene of the crime on Facebook. Anyways, nice to know it's not just employers doing the spying.

News from The Charleston Gazette in the US. "Police say an Alum Creek man high on bath salts (MDPV) killed his neighbor's pygmy goat and that neighbors found him in his bedroom, dressed in a bra and panties, next to the dead animal..."
Lisa Powers said she bought the goat on Friday as a gift to her 4-year-old grandson. They named the male goat Bailey after a female character on the Disney Channel television show "The Suite Life on Deck." "The baby just loved him," she said.
They then got a call from a neighbour alerting them to the goat being with a neighbour who had apparently kidnapped it. She went over with two other women and on entering his made their way to Thompson's bedroom door when Thompson spoke to them, Powers said.
God knows the Tories have shown their true colours in lying every step of the way about AV. Geniusly done and no holes barred to keep an electoral system used nowhere else - noting that the Tories use AV themselves?! Sadly a no vote looks likely and they'll be stronger than ever having trounced the naive Lib Dems who took them on their word about not playing dirty. Once they win tomorrow, the Tory bitch is back and gay equality is already on their agenda - getting rid of it by ditching the Equalities and Human Rights acts... Serious sh*t and the balls in your corner matey.
Only London stands in the way of them so if you weren't bothering to vote, please do. Read up on it and educate yourself - ignore everything you've heard and just find out for yourself. AV is fairer and will do us lot well.
You may remember the shocking video we showed of the murder of Priscila a 22-year old travesti/trans person in Brazil. (See it here). They are asking for more help. Here's what they say:
Dear friend, On May 18 thousands of activists will march on Brazil’s capital in the largest day of action against hate crimes and homophobia in Brazil's history. This is a key opportunity to show Brazil's political leaders that people everywhere are demanding urgent action to end the escalating hate and violence. Can you join the day of action by submitting a photo of yourself holding a sign urging the passage of PLC122? If you submit your photo by Thursday morning, we will include it as part of a massive and powerful visual projection of supporters from around the world pushing for action in the heart of Brazil's capital.
Submitting a photo only takes a moment and the more of us who participate, the louder our voice will be.
