I Keep Seeing This Headline

Cameron: No culture of fear on UK's streets

And then comes the news story:

Cameron told lawmakers there would be no "culture of fear" on Britain's streets, as police raided houses to round up more suspects from four days of rioting and looting in London and other English cities.


In other words, the only "culture of fear" that's allowable is the one imposed by the government.

Sounds pretty familiar to Americans at this point -- we used to have civil rights, too.
