In the UK, things people are posting on Facebook and Twitter are getting them arrested. This may not be a popular opinion in the era of "free speech" advocates but my reaction is that if you are indicating/inciting violence, then you should expect arrests/questioning/etc. to possibly occur. Seriously, how exactly in terms of public safety, is the government supposed to determine satire, just anger and so on??? Clearly, it is easy in some cases to figure out that there was a moment of passion.....but then again look at all the "warning signs" that come up online in the social networks of shooters and bombers. Road rage is not the only rage that people need to be more aware of and take steps to prevent. Stop the internet rage.
