    Police Hunt Down Facebook Users Who Made 'Offensive' Comments About Muslim Grooming Gangs Online


    Northumbria Police have warned that “offensive” comments on the Internet will not be tolerated, tracking down users who made “potentially criminal” posts on social media about grooming gangs.
    The force launched an investigation into comments left on its Facebook page in response to articles about the Operation Shelter scandal, in which young white British girls in were groomed, sexually abused and trafficked by mostly Muslim men of South Asian descent in Newcastle.

    Officers made a review of every comment on the page after a member of the public complained that a number of posts referred to the race and religion of the 18 people convicted following the operation.

    ChronicleLive reports that police recorded two cases of racially aggravated public order offences among responses to the news articles on Facebook, and have now tracked down six people responsible for posts “deemed to be offensive and potentially criminal”.

    Northumberland is on the border with Scotland. It's as far north as you can get and still be in England. I'd put them in the same category as "Downeasters" here in the States. My guess is the locals are trying to be "sophisticated" like the folks in London.

    Progressive Liberals get everything wrong. A warped worldview produces warped policies and actions.
