British Police Threaten to Prosecute Facebook Users Under Malicious
Communications Act for Mocking Them
Britain's police have stumbled into another public relations disaster
after threatening to track down and prosecute Facebook users for
ridiculing them. West Yorkshire Police were derided by social media users
after sharing a picture of a drugs bust on their Wakefield Rural page. The
haul involved a comically small quantity of cannabis, MailOnline reports.
"Wow that's put a dent in the war on drugs lol" commented one user
sarcastically.
"Hope you manage to nail Pablo Escobar this afternoon" added another.
The police force did not see the funny side of the criticism, however,
issuing a statement advising that it had banned a number of people from
its Facebook page and would track down and pursue prosecutions against
anyone being "insulting, abusive, or offensive".

We should hire some Israelis to help deal with them - our authorities clearly lack the guts.
