Coming soon to an authoritarian locale near you

There are so many things wrong with this story

Scores of pub-goers in Bicester were tested for traces of illegal drugs during a police operation aimed at tackling violent street crime.
Police used the force’s new drugs itemiser – which scans people for traces of banned substances – at the Litten Tree pub.
It was the first time the new technology, which detects traces of drugs from heroin to cannabis, had been used in the town.

An operation aimed at tackling violent street crime is attempting to identify people who may have come in contact with marijuana. As they enter a pub. I think my head may explode.

The pub managers barred anyone refusing to co-operate with the test from entering.
Det Sgt Steve Duffy, of Banbury CID, said two people tested positive and were searched but not found to be in possession of drugs.
The pair were then banned from entering the pub, but not arrested.
Mr Duffy said: “It went very well. We gained the full co-operation of the management and the customers.
“Everyone was very supportive and compliant.”

I don’t know where Bicester is, but clearly its residents

  1. Have no rights.
  2. Are sheep.
