Apparently three men were arrested after posting to Twitter and Facebook what were deemed to be racist and/or anti-Muslim comments regarding the Woolwich murder.
One man has been charged with "malicious communications" on Facebook, the Daily Mail reports.
Two others have been arrested under the Public Order Act on suspicion of inciting racial or religious hatred. The police are now arresting people based on mere speech in social media, a detective said in a statement to the press:Of course, it was British Muslims who demanded the arrests, but where is their outrage and condemnation for what happened to Rigby?
'The men were arrested under the Public Order Act on suspicion of inciting racial or religious hatred. Our inquiries into these comments continue.
'These comments were directed against a section of our community. Comments such as these are completely unacceptable and only cause more harm to our community in Bristol.
'People should stop and think about what they say on social media before making statements as the consequences could be serious.'
And what about arrests of Muslims who call for the death of infidels?
Those in the above photo are the kind of people who turn into animals like the butchers who killed Rigby. Why aren't they being detained. Instead people who are angered by the senseless act of violence perpetrated in the name of Islam are the ones being targeted. Two of the men arrested were taken in the middle of the night:
"We began inquiries into the comments and at around 3.20am two men, aged 23 and 22, were detained at two addresses in Bristol.
"The men were arrested under the Public Order Act on suspicion of inciting racial or religious hatred. Our inquiries into these comments continue."
Muslims need to be equally outraged by the evil that some of their fellow Muslims do, and the British government needs to start becoming more pro-active and arresting those that are truly inciting and perpetrating hate and violence, not the ones reacting to it.
Home Secretary Theresa May has threatened to ban on-line extremist Islamists and radical groups, but that will probably never happen.
