Via Bruce Schneier, Kent police have seized a board game as part of raids on environmentalists in a bit of a rumpus about them planning to disrupt the nearby power station. This game is called War on Terror and is satirical, being a little like RISK with a map of the world. A spinner is used (called the axis of evil) to decide who is the baddie next and they have to wear a balaclava with the word EVIL on it. A police spokesman said:
the balaclava “could be used to conceal someone’s identity or could be used in the course of a criminal act”.
Yeah, right. Nothing to do with bullying and intimidation then?
