But the police do not and cannot randomly search for no reason in the UK.

... sigh...

Yes, you've made that clear now, and on that basis, I would say that Americans would not view the UK search procedures to be a sign of a dystopian society. But previously, you hadn't made that clear and made it sound like the police were just randomly stopping people and frisking them for weapons, which we WOULD see as being dystopian.

Al Sharpton Calls for Knife Control Alongside Gun Restrictions Read more: newsbusters.org...




The battle over laws limiting gun ownership and use is far from over, but Rev. Al Sharpton is already looking ahead toward the next “weapon” he feels should be regulated. During his radio program last Friday, the MSNBC talk show host responded to a caller who asked:

“What happens when the criminal goes to knives, Al?” Sharpton's answer: “Then you deal with knives.” Before making that pronouncement, the staunch gun control advocate stated: In any civilized society, you do not see massacres continue to happen, from Tucson to Aurora to Columbine to Virginia Tech to where we are now in Newtown to Chicago, and you keep the same laws when clearly they’re not working. The caller then pressed the host using the common argument that when guns become too difficult to obtain for even the most determined criminals, they will find other devices of violence, such as knives.

Sharpton replied: “Then you deal with knives.” The same thing as if you have a head cold and the same thing you do if you have a head cold and the cold is gone and you have a headache. Then you take headache medicine. “The job of society is to deal with whatever problem confronts it,” he added. Read more: newsbusters.org...
