12 Canadian police begin intimidating citizens for criticizing political correctness on social media.
Back in February, the OPP shared an "anti-bullying" poster they created on twitter.
The post irked readers, as it implied that the OPP were were now concerning themselves with social media posts on the basis that they may untrue, unnecessary or unkind - which most feel is clearly not the OPP's jurisdiction. One twitter user asked "how do you determine necessity, and what are you going to do to people who send unnecessary communications to others?".
Twitter user Steven Taylor replied to the OPP's tweet, sarcastically saying "Citizen, your attention please, Your tweets could be breaking the law.", mocking the OPP's tweet.
Shortly after. Steven Taylor received a phone call from the OPP regarding his tweet, and accused him of "misrepresenting" their tweet.
Steven Taylor shared his experience with the OPP on twitter, and a predictable backlash ensued. Even politicians weighed in:
"Concerning on so many different levels." - Member of Parliament Dan Albas.
"Speechless, which I guess is the point". - Jason Kenney, MP and former minister of National Defense.
And now, a social media firestorm is underway. Any LL users who have twitter accounts are encouraged to voice their opinions. The link to the OPP's twitter account can be found below in the references.
