UK coppers vow to hunt down Facebook users

Written by Nick Farell


Incitement to riot
UK cops are looking for ten blokes who posted messages on Facebook allegedly encouraging people to riot. Scotland Yard said it will hunt down and arrest protesters who posted “really inflammatory, inaccurate” messages on Facebook.

Two teenagers were arrested this week in connection with messages posted on Facebook allegedly encouraging people to start rioting, 10 more have now joined them. Two are from St Leonards-on-Sea which is a long way from London. Nathan Sinden, who is alleged to have posted Facebook messages encouraging criminal damage and burglary, has been remanded in custody. Arrested on Wednesday, he appeared before Hastings Magistrates’ Court this morning.

An 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of making threats to kill. He has been freed on police bail until August 22. Two men from Lancashire, also a long way away from the scene of the crime have been charged after allegedly posting messages encouraging disorder on Facebook. Christopher Schofield and Warren Calvert have been charged with intentionally encouraging or assisting in the commission of an either way offence, believing it would be committed.

Cheshire coppers have fingered the collar of a Warrington, and a Macclesfield youth and were charged with inciting public disorder with their postings on Facebook and other social networks. In Guernsey, which is an Island between the UK and France three men were accused of misusing Facebook. While the UK cops are suppressing these sorts of posts, they are doing nothing to stop people posting racist posts calling for the rioters to be beaten up by vigilantes. A large number of these posts appear on a Facebook page which has the blessing of the UK Prime Minister Duncan Cameron.
