British Police State

The USA has nothing on the UK when it comes to the decline of freedom.  A boy was arrested for a tweet that was widely viewed as insensitive.  Now I’m not defending the tweet. It seems pretty mean spirited.  But just because this Olympic diver took offense, why does that give the state the right to imprison him for any length of time? Even in a country that doesn’t seem to consider freedom of speech an absolute right, a law against “malicious communication” seems ridiculously vague and draconian.
