The Arrests will Continue Until Everyone is Happy
August 9, 2012
It’s well documented that the London Olympics are trying to control all of the messaging surrounding the games, from policing pub blackboards with unapproved beer logos to freaking out over non-sponsored condoms in the Olympic Village.
It now seems that not enjoying an event in public is also something that must be stamped out.
Worsfold, whose experience was first reported by Private Eye, claims police questioned him about his demeanour and why he had not been seen to be visibly enjoying the event. Worsfold, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2010, suffers from muscle rigidity that affects his face. He was released after two hours without charge or caution.
Funny, usually the police arrest people for having too much fun. I think the constables in the Surrey police department need some remedial training in bullshit arrest protocols.
