POLICE STATE EXPERIENCED FIRST HAND FOR TAKING PHOTOS
Last night was one experience I will not forget. I have done small pieces of alternative freelance journalism before one about the Unholy alliance heavy metal tour in 2004 and one other piece about 30 seconds to Mars in 2013 both if you ask me were experiences of the abject corrupt nature of the music industry (yes they don't care about you, they just want your money and brainwash you with cultural marxism).
So there I was on Queen Street at about 4am, 4am you ask, it's because at 4am the city centre is quiet and the pictures that I would take would be with less people in the shot. See below.
The police said that if nothing is done and if something happens (most likely a false flag event) then they will get the blame. What I should have said to them is when liberty is sacrificed for security, you lose both. After numerous checks were made, they arrested me on suspiscion of theft of a driving licence. Now, a real thief would not have a debit card, library card and student card in the same wallet. So they knew, that the card was real but then under guise of 'security' arrested me. I also mentioned the three men from Cardiff who joined ISIS/IS a few months ago and they said it made the situation more dangerous. Ironically, I told them I was a freelance journalist writing about the police presence and police state in Cardiff and Newport. Thanks for the help, not!
They then put me into cuffs and made me sit in their van. I told them I would come voluntarily so the cuffs were unecessary. They said it was their 'policy'. I sat there for several minutes. I was taken to Cardiff bay police station and initially locked in a solitary room. I am then searched and have my DNA taken from me. Obviously, the check proved that my driving licence was legitimate and not stolen. This was obviously was a rouse so they could search my phone for basically nothing. It's quite funny as they wasted their time and gave me a story. They then proceeded to tell me that I was not charged with any crime and I was free to go but they had told me that some officers from Manchester who were travelling 50 miles to see me for a chat. I thought poor guys who had been called out this far for nothing!
I was made to wait several hours and at 10am I spoke to two CID officers. They then asked who I was writing for and I said henrymakow.com. The officers from Manchester came and spoke to me for a few minutes and then I told them the same. I left the station at about 10.40am. The skies across South Wales have been clear, without any trails. See below. This is because of a no-fly zone and there are reports that a military helicopter has been seen flying across Cardiff.

I will be continuing live reporting tomorrow from Newport where a planned protest will occur. I will be working with a reporter from RT's Ruptly.
