A man from Kent has been arrested for posting an image of a burning poppy on a social network site
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.

Fair enough.
I don't condone war, but to burn a poppy and not show respect to the millions that were sacrificied during WWII is horrendous.

I was really confused -- I thought someone posted a picture of a burning puppy! At least it was just symbolic, if rude. I certainly can't see an arrest happening ...
For nothing is secret that will not be revealed…

The arrest was made under section 127 of the Communications 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.

So true.

Russian and Eastern European societies are much more corrupt
etc.

Still, somethin like that could hardly happen here.

Lawlessness can have its good sides, when it comes to the former Comunists block. (dark humor, i know)
What I knew as tangible and real was nothing more than a flimsy, thin sheet of a reality.
I come to know that the real "me" is a supersoul that is my true reality that resides in the spirit world.

Good. And it's not "just burning a poppy" either. He was probably a muslim.

And for those banging on about civil liberties, try looking up what free speech actually means. People also have the right no to be offended by some disrespectful jerk pulling a stunt like this.

When the war starts this story can be used as a test. Bring it up in polite conversation, and if you get someone who approves - deal with him. If you're in the UK and find that sharp objects have been restricted, thats OK, anything hard and blunt will do. Lets see them ban objects that can be used as clubs.

No it is not. The fact is, these where retards, that went to war blindly for the banking system.

The poppy is not just for wwII, it is for ever war that the British services have ever fought

No it was remembrance day yesterday, the Poppy is a symbol warn by most people here in England on that day for those that were killed in world war one and all those since. The burning poppy would have upset most of the older population, those in the military now and their families. Also any younger generation who cares about the past and those lives in danger now abroad.
