  I wonder who else will be using these tighter rules on 'trolls' to shut down discussion?

''Changes 'will remind the trolling brigade that there are real consequences for hitting the button' and will 'undoubtedly lead to an increase in prosecutions'

Hate crimes committed on social media will be treated as seriously as similar street-based offences, according to new guidelines issued by the Crown Prosecution Service as they launch a crackdown on hate speech online.


Recognising the “corrosive effect” of hate crime on British society, Alison Saunders, the director of public prosecutions, announced the CPS will now revise prosecutions of such crimes “with the same robust and proactive approach used with offline offending”. 


The changes could lead to a dramatic increase in those being prosecuted for posting prejudice attacks on social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.


Jenny Wiltshire, the head of general crime at Hickman and Rose solicitors, told The Independent the change in policy from the CPS reflects “the fact that the internet has become a breeding ground for misogynist, racist and homophobic views”. 


She continued: “The decision to treat offences committed online no differently from offline offences will undoubtedly lead to an increase in prosecutions. It will also remind the trolling brigade that there are real consequences for hitting the button”.
Asking questions and discussing official public documents cannot be considered a hate crime.

"Asking questions and discussing official public documents cannot be considered a hate crime."
Certainly not by honest, decent people with empathy or respect for others. But that is not who we are dealing with. The people who come up with such overbearing garbage have NONE of the qualities mentioned. Expect more of these totalitarian measures in this New Age of Feudal Repression.
