We don’t need evidence to ban you from the internet news/this is bad

ZDNet UK News reports” The [British] Home Office wants to give the police and the courts sweeping new powers which could see suspected hackers and spammers receiving the cyber equivalent of an anti-social behaviour order (Asbo).

The proposed Serious Crime Prevention Order is intended to combat organised crime where the police do not have enough evidence to bring a criminal prosecution. It would enable civil courts to impose the orders on individuals, even if they had not been convicted of a crime.”

Sounds more and more like Orwell’s thought police. Great!
