Post by London metro cops threatens charges if you do something NOT illegal but you did it because...

The U.K, as we once knew it, is dead.  What remains is something out of Orwell's "1984."

Here's a recent post on the UK Metropolitan Police website:

If someone commits a criminal offence and the victim, or anyone else, believes it was motivated by prejudice or hate, we class this as a ‘hate crime’. It means the offender can be charged for the crime itself and also their reasons for doing it.

If someone does something that isn’t a criminal offence but the victim, or anyone else, believes it was motivated by prejudice or hate, we would class this as a ‘hate incident’. Though what the perpetrator has done may not be against the law, their reasons for doing it are. This means it may be possible to charge them with an offence.

If you’ve witnessed or been the victim of a crime or incident you believe was motivated by prejudice or hate, visit our How to report hate crime page. 
Didja get that?  If you do something that ISN'T a crime, but someone--anyone--believes whatever you did was "motivated by prejudice or hate," you can be charged with an offense.

The Metro Police caught a lot of flak for this and reportedly have rewritten it, but the point is that someone--in the officialdom, with power and funded by taxpayer funds--had the insanity to think this was a reasonable, desirable policy.

Pure insanity.  And there are millions of idiots here in the U.S. who would agree with 'em.
