Briton charged with planning water fight
Wed Aug 17, 2011 9:29AM GMT|
A British man will appear before a magistrate court next month after police tracked down plans for a Colcestor water fight being propagated on social networking sites.
The 20-year-old was arrested Friday after Essex police discovered the plans circulating on the BlackBerry Messenger service and Facebook, British media reported.
The arrest came as the country is handling a huge influx of prisoners and court cases after the unprecedented unrest that rocked Britain.
The government was assigned by the Prime Minister David Cameron last week to investigate whether social networking sites played a role to instigate the public to engage in criminal activities.
The unnamed man has been charged with "encouraging or assisting in the commission of an offence" under the 2007 Serious Crime Act, police said.
He was arrested with another 20-year-old man the day the water fight was allegedly due to take place, and has been bailed to appear before Colchester magistrates on September 1st. The second man was released without charge.
An event with the same agenda was held in Iran last week during which security forces arrested several boys and girls over a water fight at a seaside park in the southern parts of the country.
Western media outlets, including the British newspapers and their websites gave a vast coverage to the event in Iran with the aim of questioning the country's dealing with youths and the so-called human rights issues which they have always used as a tool.
Now, a fortnight later, in Britain, police have charged a man with conspiring a water fight gathering on his Facebook page and through text messages. This is democracy, British style.
This 'flashmob' phenomenon is getting out of hand. They are using Blackberry's encryption to send messages to each other. In US 'mob supermarket lootings' are getting viral. UK police and judicial system should take tough action against the gangsters and thugs who violate the rights of the common man.
the empires based on terror is like a palace built with mud bricks, they are right to be scared of water !
It is called ....Double Standard....Hypocrisy ...It is an amazing twist of faith that British government is getting exposed....an above the law empire that has started all the evil abuses around the world from crimes in America ( end up getting kicked out ..to Changing the map in Iran ...burning palaces in China and using Opium on it's people to colonizing of African nations.....to creation of Israel ...Saudi.....British Empire has been stain on human face........shameless pretenders...
David Cameron is proving the UK government is NOT a democracy and it's time for him to pack his bags and go live in Israel where he gets his paycheck!

Reply to Dave from Tel Aviv - Of course you would support him since you're a paid troll who draws paychecks from Israel as well. Go out and work for a living PARASITE!

Dave: Sorry to disappoint you but cameron does get paid by israel, just like tony blair does.
Water cannon firer:
Will fox news consider these water fighters as "revolutionaries" starting a revolution too? The trousers around the legs situation, in which UK government has been caught out, clearly points to the inner fascist so far well hidden and kept out of view. The punishment dished out to the members of the families of the "rioters", is routine only in israel; zio house demolishers = Brit house snatchers
This is the end of the corrupt UK government and the royal theives of the westminester.
This is the same corrupt REGIME that preaches other govs how to treat their citizen and uses human rights Bull! I love it; what comes around I guess goes around. Brit REGIME must be change by protesters. Where the hell (I hope PressTV allows the use of hell) is UNSC or HUMAN RIGHTS groups?! Are they DEAD? I guess they are all raciest against Muslims. HUMAN RIGHT IS ONLY FOR MUSLIMS NOT FOR US/UK/EU…..lol it is funny!!!
There has never been a proper democracy in Britain. One needs to only think about all the major orders that the uk gov issued without first consulting the public, and if they did pretend they took a public poll, they never actually listened to it.Think about the war in Iraq with the majority being against it, think of the imposedbody scanners in the airports! Weres any of you asked about it! No, Didn't think so, as I wasn't.
They are so fragile then,the empire is in a critical condition.
Nice one PressTV! The United Kingdom thinks it upholds democracy and freedom (as does the US!!!!) and here we have a story of double standards by the English. I wonder if this will be reported in the state-funded BBC! I checked, and yes, the state-funded BBC has this story - but only 4 little sentences. One in the face for you, Englanders!
In Iran the law is designed to improve morality by eliminating a public show of hostility. Whereas, in England the law is designed to improve a police state morality, an all-encompassing drive to instill in people a fearful submission to authority.
You cannot be serious???Then again it is Britain...I mean NOT SO GREAT BRITAIN!!!
LOL! I was about to post "you can't be serious... what a load of rubbish". So i just searched for "waterfight" and the same story appears for almost every other news website! What a joke lol....
