Man arrested for posting image of burning poppy on Twitter

(TELEGRAPH)   A man has been arrested for posting an image of a burning poppy on a social network site. Kent Police said in a statement that the man, from Aylesham, was detained last night on suspicion of making malicious telecommunications and that he was in custody awaiting interview. The force does not say whether the arrested man actually burned the poppy, or just posted the photo online. The arrest was met with incredulity on Twitter, where people mounted a fierce discussion over civil liberties. Tom Williams, tweeting as @tomwilliamsisme, wrote: ”The scary thing is, the man wasn’t arrested for burning a poppy – that’s not illegal. He was arrested for putting it online.”
