Here’s another incident that shows how the UK has become a Police State. This man got arrested for laughing.
Christopher Cocker, 36, was minding his own business watching TV in his own home was laughing so hard he fell off the settee (sofa in American). A neighbor called the police.
The police forcefully barged into his home even though he had committed no crime, sprayed him with pepper spray, handcuff him – tied him down with plastic ties on his ankles and hands, arrested and threw him in the back of the police van. He was then stripped naked and thrown in jail.
“It was something Paul Merton said and I remember falling of the settee, I didn’t think it would end up in court.
“I hadn’t had a drink or anything, I was just watching TV and all this happened. Paul Merton is one of my favorites. He’s really funny.”
