Police threaten to arrest Facebook users after 'tiny drugs bust' mocked

Recommended Posts

Police officers threatened to arrest Facebook users who mocked their "tiny drugs bust" of a small amount of cannabis seized from a man in a parked car. 

Full story

An example of when social media engagement can go quite wrong. No doubt the posts that were being refereed to were removed swiftly and now the media are posting examples of rather tame mocking responses as the posts that drew this response. This response was always going to go wrong all the same.

I've been to a "I want her done for calling me names on the facebooks." call, it deserved as much respect as this one does. Silly, over the top response.

The issue is the post was always going to attract ridicule. I haven’t got an issue with people dealing with drug possession however what did the CSOs and cops expect? 

I think the main issue is the Inspectors post, it seems that he doesn’t really get malicious comms for a start and just makes the whole thing even more laughable.

I do agree though, many of the more offensive tweets have likely been removed.

It’s cringeworthy when we post things like this on social media. Cannabis grows, yes. Large drug seizures, PWITS, yes. Tiny amount of cannabis? Really? Big win for the Police there. I’m tempted to write sarcastic comments myself when I see them.

In fairness, I don't know why anyone would put up such a measly work return and expect anything other than ridicule from the public.

Totally agree.

The only time I've ever requested some kind of results press release was for jobs where suspects got decent prison sentences or if was a fairly impactive news story with decent video/photos.
