Powers of arrest

I was just browsing another web site a moment ago, when my eye was drawn to this article in the Guardian. It's about an ex Police Officer who is petitioning No 10 to repeal a particularly odious piece of legislation.

A retired senior police officer has expressed concern about the "sweeping power" that he claims is being abused on a daily basis in all of the 43 police forces.

Read the whole story here.

It would appear that the plods can arrest you at the drop of a hat. Didn't know it had come to that.
