UK police asks Internet cafes to monitor customers

Internet cafe users in the British capital may want to watch what they download.

Scotland Yard is advising administrators of public Web spaces to periodically poke through their customers' files.

The London-based police force says it's more of an awareness drive than a surveillance campaign _ but civil libertarians aren't happy.

So now the UK gets a taste of internet censorship...

This sets a very dangerous precedent IMO and can only lead to further erosion of people's rights if internet cafe owners agree to this...

But lets face it, the police have been clever to link this with reducing the risk of terrorist attacks, which of course already # scared and dazed Joe Public will buy without thinking...

How does that line Franklin said about giving up liberty for a little safety go again ?
