Just in case you didn't already know the authorities own you, they're going to make sure you do:
NSA Journalist Glenn Greenwald’s Partner Detained in London Airport for 9 Hours
The 28-year-old was held for the maximum amount of time the law allows for questioning at airports, ports, and border areas before a formal arrest has to take place. Miranda was detained at 8:05 a.m. Sunday and released at 5 p.m., according to a Scotland Yard statement.
Miranda was eventually released without charge, but electronics, including his cell phone, laptop, memory sticks, and “various video game consoles” were confiscated. Greenwald’s Brazilian partner had been in Berlin visiting Laura Poitras, the filmmaker who has also been working with the Snowden leaks.
Don't dissent, say our overlords.
Some of us have been warning for years -- years -- that since 9/11, the designation of "terrorist" is slowly creeping to encompass anyone and everyone the state wants it to encompass. And we've been laughed at and told we're being "hysterical" and "hyperbolic." As usual, the United Sheeple of America -- and of the UK -- continue to snuffle along, their snouts stuffed into the grass.
