[quote:Anonymous Coward 27531739:MV8yMDQ4NTE2XzM0NDIyNzkxX0I4NzZGQTQ5] [quote:smilesun:MV8yMDQ4NTE2XzM0NDIyNjAzXzg2Nzg0QTFC] [quote:Anonymous Coward 1579244:MV8yMDQ4NTE2XzM0NDIyMjg0X0Q3Q0NGRDZD] so the moral of the story is that if you know you havent done anything wrong but the cops come kicking down the door, lock and load to go down fighting because the system is run by criminals. amirite? [/quote] The arrest was made under section [b][color=red]127 of the Communications[/color][/b] Act, which states that someone can be guilty of an offence if they "send by means of a public electronic communications network a message or other matter that is grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character". The law has come under fire in the past because it is too difficult to define what is "grossly offensive", rather than merely offensive. [/quote] The above highlighted refered. It is an ACT of Parliament, that needs YOU to give your authority over to them on that, otherwise it is complete BS. The quicker the sheep learn that the better. [/quote]
Kent Police said in a statement that the man, from Aylesham, had been detained last night on suspicion of making malicious telecommunications and that he was in custody awaiting interview.
The force did not say whether the arrested man actually burned the poppy, or just posted the photo online.
The arrest was met with disbelief on Twitter, where people mounted a fierce discussion over civil liberties.
