    They don't need the power to shut down sites for LEA. LEA is quite capable of it themselves, along with the ISPs said websites are hosted on. Notice the "avoid liability" inclusion? The same requirement was made for telecommunications companies. It's another power grab, one the government will quite happily help with.
