Boston Bombers: twitter twit

20130420-173346.jpg

The great Gene Hunt says “anything you say will be taken down, ripped up and shoved down your scrawny little throat” he is a fictional policeman from the 1970’s.

It is appalling that some people have bombed the Boston marathon spectators, the police department should of course be pleased to have apprehended 2 suspects. They certainly were keen to tweet the news, “CAPTURED!!! The hunt is over. The search is done. The terror is over. And justice has won. Suspect in custody.” Really? From this I gather they have apprehended another suspect who will have to be questioned, charged and then be subjected to a trial but then I live in the UK of course, not the land of the free.

Our police also tweet, albeit in rather more restrained tones “14 football fans were arrested today following the Wigan vs Millwall game”. “A murder investigation is underway following the discovery of a deceased male, aged 23”. “A man has been apprehended and charged with the rape of 17 year old girl on a bus last week”.

I hope they find the right people responsible for this atrocity, and that they are appropriately dealt with by the full force of the law. Police should tweet in line with these general principles and not whoop hysterically like they have, it certainly isn’t very British unless of course Gene Hunt is tweeting on their behalf.
