British police question boy who spelled 'terrorist' by mistake

The most obvious drawback of placing counter-terrorism in the hands of non-professionals is misplaced judgement.

Kindness generally loses because greed and fear sell headlines and generate clicks.

Headline: British police question boy who spelled 'terrorist' by mistake

A 10-year-old Muslim boy has been questioned by British police in the north of England after mistakenly writing in an English lesson that he lived in a "terrorist house", the BBC reported on Wednesday.

The boy had intended to write that he lived in a "terraced" house but teachers did not realize he had made an error and reported the boy to the police in accordance with new counter-terrorism rules, which critics say are focused on Muslim communities.
