This world really has gone to the fucking dogs.
I was browsing the paper this morning when I came across and article where police are investigating a “tweet”.
There are so many things wrong with this that I really don’t know where to start.
Apparently someone referred to a footballer on Twitter as “choc ice”. There must be more to it than that, you say? There isn’t. That’s it. Someone tweeted “choc ice” and the police are investigating!
It seems that the “tweet” was about a footballer, Ashley Cole. Now I haven’t a fucking clue who this Ashley Cole is and as far as I am concerned he and all his fellow prima donna professional footballers are nothing more than a waste of oxygen, and I don’t give a shite what race colour or creed they are. However this Cole bloke didn’t even complain about the “tweet”. That was left up to “members of the public”.
So here we have people complaining to the police about a silly message that didn’t even refer to them? And the fucking police are investigating? Jayzus but yiz must have a fierce low crime rate in the UK if the police have time for that kind of shite?
The police say “We have received complaints from members of the public regarding alleged racist comments made on a social networking site. These concerns will be fully investigated to establish whether any criminal offences have been committed.”
So the police are not investigating a crime. They are investigating to see if there is a crime.
Will someone please tell me….
Has the whole world gone mad?
Or is just me?
