Anti Social Behaviour Order
The Anti Social Behaviour Order is a tool so draconian that they undermine the very liberties that they are supposed to protect. ASBOs give a set of restrictions tailored to an individual for petty offences (which may not even be against the law) and can impose up to five years in prison for violating the terms. Hearsay evidence is even allowed! one bloke is spending four months in jail for howling like a werewolf.
