Unnerving for where we are heading.

A mother was arrested in front of her children and locked up for seven hours after referring to a transgender woman as a man online.

Three officers detained Kate Scottow at her home before quizzing her at a police station about an argument with an activist on Twitter over so-called 'deadnaming'.

The 38-year-old, from Hitchin, Hertfordshire, had her photograph, DNA and fingerprints taken and remains under investigation.

More than two months after her arrest on December 1, she has had neither her mobile phone or laptop returned, which she says is hampering her studies for a Masters in forensic psychology.

All unnerving stuff for where we are heading. Of course the Police are underfunded, so they have to get their priorities right and go for someone who offended someone, of course the person down the road that was burgled a month ago is still waiting..

So true Norman ! It's the same old political correctness gone mad. Never mind about the "proper" crimes e.g. burglaries, assaults etc.

Re: Unnerving for where we are heading.

Having read the article it does appear that this was not the main reason , repeated threats are mentioned .

All for free speech but we all have responsibilities

Re: Unnerving for where we are heading.

It was in the DM Steve so I readily concede the whole story might not be there, but the police obviously found a need to turn up after a complaint was made. Many others that I would deem as real crime do not get that luxury. I gather shoplifters have now been relegated to just forgetful shoppers in some forces.

Re: Unnerving for where we are heading.

As I posted last week, a similar situation arose: Hate crime

Since the above posting, the Suffolk Police have apologised to Mrs Nelson. They said:

"Over the last 24 hours there has been a social media debate over the way we handled a complaint about a blog. Today we have issued the following statement:



https://mobile.twitter.com/SuffolkPo...46098295345153

So a number of questions arise from this. What on earth were the police thinking of to go after a 75 year old woman for expressing an opinion in the first place?

The police now acknowledge that they got it wrong to have acted in the way that they did.

So why oh why are the police still doing exactly the same in the Kate Scottow case?

Chromosomes cannot be changed. Telling the truth is now "hate speech".

This is the UK in 2019.

Re: Unnerving for where we are heading.

I had a warning from *FB* last week , i was warned that my post suggesting the reprehensible EM PEE $$$Christopher$$ **Chope ** should have his " &&&Legs $$$ 000broken/// in order to prevent his standing in order to shout object and prevent mutilation of girls .

I accepted the censure and the removal of my post , i keep my fingers crossed that he still succumbs the the fate i wished upon hime , metaphorically of course .

We are being watched .

Re: Unnerving for where we are heading.

'Is this the right way to fight crime?' Boris Johnson attacks police for 'wasting time' on Twitter trolls instead of tackling knife crime after mother is arrested for calling transgender woman a man.

Boris Johnson has hit out at police after a mother was arrested in front of her children and locked up for seven hours after referring to a transgender woman as a man online.

The former Foreign Secretary spoke out after three Hertfordshire Police officers detained Kate Scottow at her home before quizzing her at a police station about an argument with an activist on Twitter.
