Just a quick update on yesterday's post on the Metropolitan Police's hunt for odd photographers.
Here's the script text from their radio spot"
Female Voice over:
How d’you tell the difference between someone just video-ing crowded place and someone who’s checking it out for a terrorist attack?
How can you tell if someone’s buying unusual quantities of stuff for a good reason or if they’re planning to make a bomb?
What’s the difference between someone just hanging around and someone behaving suspiciously?
How can you tell if they’re a normal everyday person, or a terrorist?
Male voice over:
The answer is, you don’t have to.
If you call the confidential Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321, the specialist officers you speak to will analyse the information. They’ll decide if and how to follow it up.
You don’t have to be sure.
If you suspect it, report it.
Call the Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321 in confidence.
(you can listen to it here)
This is just bad in so many way's I don't even know where to start (leaving aside the implied sexism of the actual sound version)
