Presumed guilty

The last couple of days, during the COP15 climate related demonstrations, the police have been ever present. Armed with a tailor made fresh law, suspiciously named (and loosely translated into:) The Scoundrel Bill. This allows the police to detain a person for 12 hours, on nothing more than a suspicion. This tuesday a total of 1000 people was lined up in the famous choo choo train, restrained for hours on the freezing ground. Of which only 6 went on to be charged with obstructing justice.

More on the bill here and pictures of wednesdays demo here.
And an update on the reactions (for the danish reader).
