    UK police make 3 arrests a day for offensive Facebook and Twitter messages

    Police overwhelmed by 4,000 ‘petty squabbles’ on Facebook and Twitter, with three arrests a day for offensive messages

    • Statistics from 22 out of the 43 police forces in England and Wales show arrests are averaging three a day
    • Police say in most cases people need to 'grow up'

    And from talking to my colleagues I can tell you they they are absolutely sick to death of these people making complaints.

    However they are often forced into making arrests knowing full well that the job will go nowhere.

    I can only echo the sentiment "grow up children". However I know my colleagues don't have that that particular resolution available to them

    To protect and serve!!!
