1. British Police Threaten to Prosecute Facebook Users Under Malicious Communications Act for Mocking Them
Britain’s police have stumbled into another public relations disaster after threatening to track down and prosecute Facebook users for ridiculing them.
West Yorkshire Police were derided by social media users after sharing a picture of a drugs bust on their Wakefield Rural page. The haul involved a comically small quantity of cannabis, MailOnline reports.
“Wow that’s put a dent in the war on drugs lol” commented one user sarcastically.
“Hope you manage to nail Pablo Escobar this afternoon” added another.
The police force did not see the funny side of the criticism, however, issuing a statement advising that it had banned a number of people from its Facebook page and would track down and pursue prosecutions against anyone being “insulting, abusive, or offensive”.

WARSAW, Poland: Polish migrants living in and leaving the United Kingdom for their native country have cited concerns about life in contemporary Britain, with issues including economics, anti-white racism, and terrorist attacks.
While the readjustment of the British economy, rapid growth in Poland, and the pending departure of Britain from the European Union account for some returnees, Polish emigres to Britain interviewed for a feature in Polish magazine wSieci also revealed a number of other concerns.
One of those is a fear of terrorism after a series of deadly attacks in 2017.
