An information page was also posted in a follow up tweet that states, “The Police can only prosecute when the law is broken, but we also want to know about non-crime hate incidents. These incidents may not be criminal offences but often can feel like a crime to those affected, and can sometimes escalate to crimes.”

The tweet prompted thousands of responses because it specifically tells people to report incidents that are not even crimes.

“This hadn’t been thought through properly at all. I can imagine e your frontline officers, already overworked, reading that tweet and staring miserably at their workload on the computer, desperately trying to remember why they joined the job,” tweeted one respondent.

...

Figures released in July show that only 9% of crimes end with suspects being charged or summonsed in England and Wales. In some areas of the country, police are advising citizens that they will stop investigating “low level crimes” like shoplifting, car crime and criminal damage due to budget cuts.

Meanwhile, over 3,000 people in the UK are arrested every year under section 127 of the Communications Act 2003, which makes it illegal to intentionally “cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety to another.”

Priorities.

The proposed EU Internet rules just redefine "shitposting".  All conservatives should troll all liberal Internet content, and be offended, and report them to the police.  This war to end all memes is going to be epic!

If I reported everything that offended me,

then when would I find the time to get anything else done?

The hard right doesn't realize they're acting just like SJWs, just from the reverse side of the coin. It's funny to see the same tactics from each side.

It's my opinion that offense can't be given, only taken.

The hard left doesn't realize they are acting just like Nazis.  Both are damned.

Do you know how the Nazis acted!? I haven't seen anyone acting like that from the left or the right! You're just making more stupid talk so you can get a rise, and you got it.

You are so triggered ... are you related to Roy Rogers' horse? ;-)

Yes, I have studied WW II and prior ... a lot.  Same as Gawdzilla.  The US wants Götterdämmerung ... and will get it nice and hard.

Is even discussing WW II .. a hate crime in Europe?  The OP y'know.  What about WW I?

I remember that episode as one of ST:TNGs finest.  I looked it up because of your reference, to refresh my memory.  It said most Star Trek fans disliked it.  But I loved it.  There was a long discussion on allegories vs metaphors, but the important part was that understanding in the oddest of thought-processes was possible.

And yes, I've read Gilgamesh...
