Police State

A Glasgow man has been imprisoned for 290 days. Nothing unusual you might think, except his crime was mocking the murder of two WPCs on Facebook.

The man is obviously a prat, a nasty prat, but prison?

Easier to look 'tough on crime' by arresting and prosecuting Internet Trolls than cracking down on Gun-toting Gangsters and Sex Slavers.

Institutional royalty, Gregg.

Some become sacred cows and sanity gets left behind.

Think your last sentence pretty much nails it.
