Yesterday I showed you the bizarre campaign by British police to smear anyone “right wing.”
Now here’s a tweet by another UK force, the Wiltshire Police:
You can't hide from us if your spewing abuse from behind a computer screen. Our boys & gals in blue will find you #999WhatsYourEmergency.
And the picture shows spying eyes looking at a computer.
There are 23,000 jihadists at large in the UK according to the Times of London. But the Wiltshire police want you to call 911 if you saw something you don’t like on the Internet.
The tweet backfired, though. It got over 6,500 comments, almost all of them mocking the Wiltshire Police.
But think about this:
That means the force just got more than 6500 cases to work on. And I’m not joking — this was the Wiltshire Police's official reaction:
“We are reviewing the posts and will consider any potential criminal offences which might have been committed.”
It’s stupid, and funny — but if you don’t think Canadian police are taking notes, you haven’t been paying attention...
