    This wasn't a "precrime". The guy isn't a "thoughtcriminal". He actually wrote something on twitter that was deemed to break the law.

    Would he have been charged if it hadn't been reported to the authorities? Probably not.

    Is he's being made an example of? Perhaps, but that doesn't change the fact what he did was illegal.

    This guy is likley to get thrown out of uni and, at least until the conviction is spent, will struggle to get any job that does a CRB check.

    Your freedom of speech, has to be weighed against the rights of others. Just because something was once tollerated, doesn't mean it has ever been acceptable!

    Re: What can and can't you say on Twitter?

    hahahaha freedom of speech! next it'll be the "in breach of his human rights..." argument to defend him. would any normal person DREAM of saying what he said? No.

    If anything, stuff posted on the internet should give you the time to THINK about what your saying, it's not like "it just comes out of your mouth" as it would when speaking. you have to decide what you are going to write, type it and then post it. Plenty of time to consider what is said.

    Like pop says, maybe overly harsh but still... serves him right.
