I don't condone war, but to [b]burn a poppy and not show respect to the millions that were sacrificied during WWII is horrendous.[/b][/quote] [b]i thought he was protesting heroin.[/b][/quote] That was my initial thought, that there was some connection to heroin, but then again [b]I have never heard of this connection between world war 2 and poppies.[/b] [/quote] Fucking hell, try educating yourself. [/quote] Nope, they DO NOT HAVE A CASE. There is reasonable doubt as to intent. Irregardless of that, this law is complete bullshit and a violation of the 1st Amendment. Period. 'Poppies' symbolize something other than heroin>? I suppose this is a created paradigm, its supposed to mean something, I had no knowledge of this either. People are expected to follow every trend?

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.
