White people became the largest group arrested on suspicion of terrorism in the UK
September 13, 2018 | Brainwave Science
According to Anti-terror police of the UK, they have arrested more white suspects than people of Asian appearance for the first time in more than a decade. The official statistic shows 351 persons were arrested on suspicion of terrorism-related activity. Out of them133 suspects were white and 129 were recorded as Asian ethnic appearance.
Officials reported the pattern of rise of crimes committed by white suspects. The arrest of this category suspects accounted for 38% of terrorism-related arrests in the latest period – an increase of four percentage points on the previous year. At the same time, the number of committed crimes by people of Asian appearance fell by seven points to 37%. The Home Office reported also that 234 arrests were registered in the ‘international’ category. The officials suspect those crimes are connected to or motivated by terrorist groups based outside the UK (such as Islamic State). The demographics of terrorists in prison, where Islamists make up the majority, is also changing, as the number of far-right extremists jailed rises.
As a result of the investigations of the 351 arrests, 92 individuals were charged with a terrorism-related offense. 46 people were convicted as terrorists.
The officials in the UK published the latest statistic regarding the number of terrorist crimes in the country. According to official documents, the total number of arrests fell by more than a fifth (22%) year-on-year. But at the same time police stressed that this did not mean the threat has reduced. Besides, the country faces the problem of rising terrorist activity among white people. The Home Office report said: ‘This was the first time, since the year ending June 2005, that the proportion of white people arrested has exceeded the proportion of Asian people arrested.’
While police leaders said the past year saw the highest number of terrorists tried and successfully convicted since data collection began in 2009. According to Deputy assistant commissioner Dean Haydon, a senior coordinator for national counterterror policing, there is unprecedented levels of demand across CT Policing and the police has been working tirelessly to ensure that their investigations yield positive results at court. “It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our officers and support staff, not just in London but across our 11 Counter Terrorism Units nationwide”, he added.
The representative of the Counter-terror police commented ‘The step-change in terrorist activity is matched only by an increased effort from police and security services, and our officers are working incredibly hard to protect the public and to bring people to justice, which is evidenced by the impressive conviction rate achieved in the last year.’ The war against terrorism now is complicated by rising the terrorism activity between white people. That is why old methods of detecting perpetrators and preventing crimes can be powerless.
In August 2018 Sir Mark Peter Rowley, QPM, the former head of the Metropolitan police’s counter-terrorism unit said, “The UK has not “woken up” to the threat posed by the far right…. For the first time since the second world war, we have a domestic terrorist group, it’s rightwing, it’s neo-Nazi, it’s proudly white supremacist, portraying a violent and wicked ideology,” Rowley told BBC Newsnight”. The cancer of terrorism is metastatic, and it spreads to all parts on forms of domestic terrorism, international terrorism, lone-wolves, self-radicalized home-grown violent extremists. The most challenging function for counter-terror agencies is to quickly determine who is a terrorist and who is not. They are expected to protect the nation and its citizens as well as respect human rights that are expected to be upheld by a democracy. Technology that supports law enforcement in this daunting task to tackle terrorism head-on is called iCognative by Brainwave Science.
Invented for definitive determinations of differences between terrorists and innocents in absence of any physical evidence, iCognative is one of the most powerful tools of investigation law enforcement agencies look to add in their arsenal. In the current situation of the war against terrorism in the UK, iCognative can help counterterrorism forces expose terrorists and their connections.
With the power of proven neuroscience phenomenon called P300, this patent-free science has been transformed into modern, out of the box and ready to use technology by leading technologists and scientists at Brainwave Science. In collaboration with law enforcement agencies at a global level, Brainwave Science team designed this ultra-modern iCognative technology to serve mankind in the fight against terrorism, trafficking, and virtually all evils that are threat to peace and security by criminals.
Brainwave Science designed and extensively tested to perfection a proprietary non-invasive headset that records brainwaves while suspect watches case-related information flashed in front of him on a monitor. If suspect knows details that can be known only to terrorist, the technology will find it out with the more than 99% of accuracy.
iCognative by Brainwave Science accurately and objectively detects what a suspect knows or does not know regarding the record of the planning or perpetration of terrorist acts and crimes, terrorist training, or inside knowledge of a terrorist organization, stored in the brains of the terrorists, etc.
With the power of iCognative specific screening counterterrorism forces of the UK can put terrorists behind bars and provide safety for the citizens.
