Man Arrested For Tweeting A Picture Of A Burning Poppy

12 November 2012

Kent Police:

A man from Aylesham has tonight been arrested on suspicion of malicious telecommunications. This follows a posting on a social network site of a burning poppy.

He is currently in police custody awaiting interview.

I’m so glad we have the freedom to believe whatever we want1 in this country.

1 No, I personally wouldn’t burn a poppy, but I don’t think people should be censored from doing so.
