A man was arrested and ‘hauled off a plane and questioned for 3 hours as a suspected terrorist’ – because of the music he was listening to.
‘Playing The Clash made me a terror suspect‘
The taxi driver who took him to Heathrow Airport felt that his choice of music was ‘questionable’, and that by playing that music, he was probably a terrorist. So he called the police.
“A terrorist was just in my taxi! I could tell ’cause they were listening to The Clash and Led Zeppelin!”
And, of course, based on those choices of music, the police stormed the plane and arrested him. Naturally, really.
Well, ‘naturally’ if you’re living in a climate of fear and stupidity, that is.
