you're being very pedantic. i say he was arrested for being offensive on the internet, you say no he wasn't he was arrested for being offensive and
using the internet to communicate this. any need for that in this thread?
if he'd done that in the street the chances of him being arrested would be low.
first off, he'd need to have done it in front of a police officer.
secondly, he'd have had to ignore at least a warning because there is no way a policeman would arrest someone for having a rant without first warning
them to calm down.
if you've ever been in any major british train station you'll hear people go on wild rants like that all the time and there is no way the police
arrest anyone for them unless they refuse to calm down when asked. they'll usually calm them down, take them somewhere to have a sit down and think
about what they're doing.
i've seen this first hand many times in new street station, people ranting and raving about how horrible the city of birmingham is and how stupid all
the people are. the police do not arrest people for it without fair warning before hand.
