Not inferring, stating outright.

Do you think people should be allowed to make threats online?


Certainly not.

British police should be aware that their social media post are being monitored and any malicious communications or threatening posts will be investigated and where necessary acted upon.


Well the law does apply to the police as well.

Unless you are tying to imply that the police giving a warning about possible legal consequences is the same as people threatening the staff at a children's hospital. But that would just be a bit silly.


This situation is no different then me being able to arrest you for not agreeing with me on this post and calling it retarded.


Since no one is getting arrested for not agreeing it really is very different.


Not yet. but thats why they made the threat.


Since disagreeing isn't against the law then no it isn't.


Please tell me what they are threatening but use their words not yours .

Pointing out that they don't say what you claim is semantics?

UK isn't a police state and have more rights here than say for example the US, so not sure what your point is.

I agree with you in regard to the malicious communications act being a load of hokum.

That's the fault of parliament, rather than our police though. They just enforce the law.

One thing, that may put this into context.
I have never been afraid when a cop has stopped me for a chat. I doubt I would feel the same way in the US. What with all the shootings and so on that happens over there.

Here's a thought, go and be abusive, threatening and or insulting to one of your local cops, assuming you're not shot dead I would love to know how that goes for you.... Good luck..

It happens here all the time and most of the time the cop just writes the ticket but sometimes the cop does alot worse and gets away with it.

But what they cant do is just flat out say hey we are going to arrest you for calling us names . Because we have rights..

They're not going to prosecute anyone, never have in these situations. They just remind people of the law in order to maintain peace. It's you who lacks reading comprehension as they have to be clear violations of the malicious communications act and you would never be arrested for it - at worst on the spot £60 fine.

In America you can say whatever you like to the police without fear of being shot dead or choked out on the street. No penalties, no fines.

I posted a thread about UK police threatening to arrest people for speaking out against baby Alfie's state sanctioned murder.


Well thats a lie, they threatened to arrest people who were making threats against hospital staff looking after sick kids but yeah lets move on.....

This to me is yet another of these anti-uk threads that I keep seeing springing up from the right-wing of ATS, seems to be a retaliation because you don't like that quite a few British folk have challenged your views. Now the problem is that you just don't understand our laws. If I wrote on that page "haha look at that fat cop trying to lift that box what a .....", the police might delete the comment, just like ATS mods might. If however I write something like "hahaha look at that cop I am going to kill him for taking our weed" then thats different because I have just threatened a police officer and that could lead to prosecution.

The thing about UK law is that its not black and white, there is a lot of grey and sometimes our laws do lead to some wired convictions but for the most part they work.

Basically for us Brits looking at this its kind of funny watching you all try to play this game of UK vs USA without really understanding how our laws work.

Makes you look rather silly I think.
