Just being associated with somebody that criticizes mass surveillance programs can now get you detained in the United Kingdom. We recently saw this when David Miranda, who is apparently the lover of Guardian reporter Glenn Greenwald, was detained by British police for nine hours at London’s Heathrow airport.
by Daniel G J, Story Leak:
Greenwald is The Guardian reporter whom Edward Snowden turned his files on the NSA over to. The stories Greenwald has written about the files have embarrassed both the NSA and its British counterpart, the GCHQ. Now, authorities have apparently figured out a way to strike back and violate a man’s rights.
Searching for Data About Surveillance
Authorities stopped Miranda yesterday and confiscated all of the electronics that he was carrying (which the DHS can also now do in the US’ ‘Constitution free zones’ that Anthony Gucciardi broke earlier this year).
