THOUGHT POLICE? “Hate crime police raid 150 homes.”

A few people were arrested for, you know, real crimes. But “most have been arrested on suspicion of making racist threats and of homophobic harassment.” Those could be crimes, of course, if they’re real threats, or real harassment. But the extent of political correctness in Britain makes me wonder.

The photo accompanying the BBC article shows police facing a stereotypically Muslim family; it doesn’t say whether they are victims or perpetrators. Adriana Cronin has more over at Samizdata.
