If you mean laws against carving up innocent people on the street with knives, well, the Brits have a problem. But if you complain about such an outrage on Facebook or Twitter, you’re going to be crushed by the full majesty of the law. (Via InstaPundit):
A 22-year-old man has been charged on suspicion of making malicious comments on Facebook following the murder of British soldier Lee Rigby. Benjamin Flatters, from Lincoln, was arrested last night after complaints were made to Lincolnshire Police about comments made on Facebook, which were allegedly of a racist or anti-religious nature.
Murder and beheading of a British soldier ON A STREET IN FRIGGIN' LONDON, with cops standing by helplessly waiting for a cop with a gun to show up... then this. "Don't you dare say anything hurtful about muslims, just because a couple did this(on top of all else, but don't mention that either)! You'll be nicked if you do!"
The window's closing; and if they act before it does, I'm afraid it'll be as Tam thinks. In large part because, when you let things reach that point, that's about all the reaction that's left to stop it.
Yes, still tied up; had a minute to look around and saw this crap, and it demanded some speechifying before my head blew up.
