...or Why I, Gods Willing, Will Never Return to Europe... "15 EU partners agreed to replace cumbersome extradition procedures among member states by a single search-and-arrest warrant for 32 serious crimes, some related to terrorism." A-ha, so it's terrorism they are trying to fight. How nice. Let's see. [A Pan-European Arrest Warrant can be issued if the person is accused of...] *participation in a criminal association *terrorism *slave trade *sexual exploitation of children and child pornography *illegal trade with drugs and psychotropic substances *illegal trade with weapons, ammunition and explosives *corruption *fraud, including the fraud to the disadvantage of the financial interests of the European Communities *money laundring *counterfeiting, including counterfeite of the European currency *[red][b]CYBERCRIME[/b][/red] *crimes against the environment, including trade with endangered species *assistance to illegal entry and illegal stay *deliberate killing, heavy bodily injury *illegal trade with organs and human tissue kidnapping, wrongful deprivation of personal liberty and taking of hostages *racism and xenophobia *theft in organized form or with weapons *illegal trade with cultural possessions, including antiques and objects of art *extortion and protection racket *imitation and product piracy *forgery of official documents and trade *forgery of means of payment *illegal trade with hormones and other growth sponsors *illegal trade with nuclear and radioactive substances *trade with stolen motor vehicles *rape *arson *and any other crime that falls in the competence of the international court of justice Now, I certainly don't have a problem when a terrorist can't hide in some obscure country or other, but "cybercrime, crimes against the environment, xenophobia" ... ? Thought crimes? Not to mention "any other crimes"? With all those thought crime laws especially Britain, France and Germany have on the books? Uh-hu. I'll stay away from The Continent from now on.

Guess I don't see the problem. There's no doubt in my mind that you'll see the United States of Europe some day. -legrue

I wouldn't have a problem with that if there was something like a Constitution and Bill of Rights there.

So in Europe, you could be arrested for simply being afraid of the immigrant scourge. Thought police anyone?
