WHAT WOULD YOU RATHER THE POLICE DO: INVESTIGATE TWITTER TROLLS OR YOUR RANSACKED HOME?

WHAT WOULD YOU RATHER THE POLICE DO: INVESTIGATE TWITTER TROLLS OR YOUR RANSACKED HOME?
Do you recognise this dead former prime minister and can you tell us where he was on October 18 1963? Does this Twitter troll’s account belong to someone you know? Can you identify the voice behind this disrespectful transgender comment overheard in the Coach and Horses pub last Tuesday night?  OK, I exaggerate in order to make a point or two.  Yesterday, the police in England reported a rise in “hate crimes” of 29 per cent. Yet 20 years ago such an offence did not exist and the “crime” is often just someone expressing an opinion. I suspect that most people would rather the police prioritised burglaries, thefts and assaults over offended sensibilities.
