Stopped and searched by the police for installing an art object

February 12, 2007

Follow the link river thames art – a photoset on Flickr for a pictured documentation of how London police was destroying art, suspecting it to be a terrorism act.
The most ridiculus point about the whole incidence was not the fact that we were stopped from hanging a swing (which really just looked like a swing and not like anything dangerous) on a tree at the River Thames, but the views of the officer who had to exercise his duty: “Your student is quite argumentative. if she would speak like this to a German officer, he would slinger her on the back of his car straight away and she knows that”, he said to Mirjas tutor. Oh my… what a caveman. And he is one of those allowed to enforce rules far beyond the point where the rule-makers themselves already would have said that it becomes necessary to bend them.
