Submission + - Man arrested in Uk for posting poppy burning photo on Facebook (thejournal.ie)

An anonymous reader writes: Police in Kent, England have arrested a man for posting an image of a burning poppy on Facebook. He was arrested under the Malicious Communication Act and can face up to 6 months in prison. For all the west does to criticise China and Middle Eastern countries, one would hope that we were above this sort of censorship.
