This isn’t an April Fools joke. The police department in Glasgow has issued this threat, by Twitter: "Think before you post or you may receive a visit from us this weekend. Use the internet safely. #thinkbeforeyoupost"
They added a chart showing the word “think,” with each letter standing for some watchword. Is the tweet true? Hurtful? Illegal? Necessary? Kind?
This comes a week after a London man was arrested for the alleged crime of tweeting about a conversation with a Muslim woman.
(Glasgow has been in the news lately about some other social media posts, but ones made by Muslims. Funny, those “THINK” rules don’t see to apply to Muslim promoting terrorism. Just to anyone complaining about terrorism.)
Canadians aren't safe from police bullying, though. I’ll tell you about a Canadian journalist who just got a call from the OPP about a joke he made about them on Twitter.
When I saw that, I did something I don't think I've ever done before...
NEXT: Sun columnist Lorne Gunter joins me to talk about the Cenovus job cuts — more proof that Trudeau's EI plan is unfair to Edmonton.
THEN: Tiffany Gabbay from Truth Revolt reports on on Al Gore’s proposal to turn “climate eniers” into criminals. Plus Tiffany and I have a BIG announcement...
FINALLY: Your message to me — including hate mail!
