Is this what we are taxed to facilitate as “policing?
Police spent four weeks tracking down a mother who joked on Facebook about throwing an egg at David Cameron, it has today been claimed. Debra Burt said that she made the remark after becoming frustrated with government cuts. The 45-year-old from Ramsgate, Kent, wrote: ‘Cameron – I’d like to egg him’ on a friend’s Facebook timeline, during a conversation about the Prime Minister’s visit to Kent last week to witness the Archbishop of Canterbury being sworn in.
What passes as 21st century policing is far removed from what Sir Robert Peel envisaged but much closer to a Stasi State.
