A few days ago, this happened.
Several British police forces have questioned newsagents in an attempt to monitor sales of a special edition of Charlie Hebdo magazine following the Paris attacks, the Guardian has learned. Officers in Wiltshire, Wales and Cheshire have approached retailers of the magazine, it has emerged, as concerns grew about why police were attempting to trace UK-based readers of the French satirical magazine.
Wiltshire police apologised on Monday after admitting that one of its officers had asked a newsagent to hand over the names of readers who bought a special “survivors’ issue” of the magazine published after its top staff were massacred in Paris last month. On Wednesday, it emerged that a UK-based distributor of Charlie Hebdo, John Menzies, had provided police with a list of newsagents that were stocking issues of the magazine. Smiths News, which also distributed the magazine, refused to comment on whether it had passed over information to police.
I dont know whats worse.

In one case,it is reported that a newsagent spinelessly HANDED OVER people’s names.
‘Wiltshire Police would like to apologise to the members of public who may be affected. [This information] has been permanently and securely disposed of.’
