There’s a chap whose name I come across fairly often – Charlie Veitch, activist and head of the Love Police, a group who engage in various publicity stunts involving members of the public and police, and publish them online. This particular one left me fuming:
I want to like what Charlie Veitch is doing, and the point he is trying to make, but the more I see, the more I form the opinion that he’s a self-aggrandising buffoon who enjoys the sound of his own voice. It pissed me off to see how he fucked up some old man’s day just to prove a point. I know he’s trying to show that this is how governments are treating people, but why propagate the same behaviour in doing so? That guy probably went home extremely angry and upset because of how Charlie Veitch treated him.
I wonder what the other people who were troubled by Veitch that day actually took away from the experience – is his approach a good one?
