UK Police Arrest Man For Rude Facebook Post About Finsbury Park Attack

A man has been arrested on suspicion of posting an offensive Facebook post about the London Finsbury Park attack.
Police said a 37-year-old, believed to be the son of an owner of the Rhondda Cynon Taff company whose van was used in Monday’s attack, is in custody.
Richard Evans allegedly posted: “It’s a shame they don’t hire out steam rollers or tanks could have done a tidy job then.”
And now he’s in jail. For posting something rude online. In a first-world country. Or at least it is for now.

Stick with the fights you can win, I guess. It’s not as if Welsh car-rental agencies are going to retaliate.
