This morning, the Metropolitan Police have been issuing threats via twitter. More specifically from their CO11, The Public Order Branch of the Metropolitan Police, twitter account: @CO11MetPolice.
Here are their (current) tweets in chronological order:
If the memory of dead soldiers is insulted where people have gathered to honour those soldiers there is clearly a threat to public order.
Last year during the 2 min silence a group burnt poppies and a counter protest was also held. This caused considerable upset to the public.
Arrests were made in 2010 & 2 people were later convicted. Intelligence and info suggested a similar incident may occur this year.
The tweets sent out from this account this morning were intended to warn against any similar protests taking place.
Is the Met over-stepping their bounds by issuing such threats? Leave your comments below.
