PublicOrgTheory has a must-read post on England's grotesque, neo-Stalinist attempt at curbing "anti-social behavior," which includes...well, just about anything other people do that you happen not to like (starting illegal wars excepted, of course):
Troublemakers as young as ten years old can be barred from entering neighbourhoods, ringing doorbells, using public transport and mobile phones or even uttering certain words for a minimum of two years. Securing an ASBO is easy. Hearsay evidence, for instance, is admissible in court. The consequences of stepping out of line are weighty: a maximum of five years in prison for doing something that is not necessarily an offence in law. Not surprisingly, such a powerful weapon is popular: more than a thousand ASBOs were handed out in the first half of 2004.All together now: "If you're innocent, you have nothing to fear!"
