London police kicking kittens, spitting on old people and systemically abusing handicapped minorities

Well not really, but I imagine it's only a matter of time. Today's article, Police delete London tourists' photos 'to prevent terrorism' shows that the Metro Police really don't care what people think of them. You'd think that with the Ian Tomlinson story turning so bad, (G20 death: Met police officer may face manslaughter charge) they might start behaving.
But the tourists have said they had to return home to Vienna without their holiday pictures after two policemen forced them to delete the photographs from their cameras in the name of preventing terrorism.

In a telephone interview from his home in Vienna, Matka said: "I've never had these experiences anywhere, never in the world, not even in Communist countries."

He described his horror as he and his 15-year-old son were forced to delete all transport-related pictures on their cameras, including images of Vauxhall underground station.

"Google Street View is allowed to show any details of our cities on the world wide web," he said. "But a father and his son are not allowed to take pictures of famous London landmarks."

What's going on here? I mean it wasn't hard to believe it when they were going after the Brazilians and the vaguely brown but this week they're targeting northern Europeans, and they haven't had any trouble with Austrian terrorists since the forties.
