Manchester man arrested for alleged sewer-grate photography, held as a 
terrorist.

Still think that if you're innocent, you have nothing to fear from 
surveillance and control laws? Have a look at this news-video about 
Stephen Clarke, a man who was accused to taking pictures of 
sewer-gratings in Manchester and arrested. Though the police couldn't 
find any photos of sewer-gratings on his phone (and even though "what a 
sewer grating looks like" isn't a piece of specialized terrorist 
intelligence), he was held on suspicion of planning an act of terror, 
imprisoned for two days while the police searched his home, his phone 
and his computer. When they couldn't find anything suspicious, they 
released him, but kept his DNA on file, as the biometric of someone who 
had been accused of plotting a terrorist act.
