Philip Scott Burgess got arrested for encouraging his friends to set up a riot on their town.
Hours’ later looters started an onslaught on a shopping precinct in Salford, Greater Manchester, just a short mile away from his home, prior to the time that trouble spread to Manchester City Centre.
On Thursday, the UK claims that they were not seeking on closing social networks during civil disturbances. The UK government believes they does not needed to since there are better ways to take control of the riots than blame social media for it.
It seems that the UK authorities do not see any offense linked with riot as large or small. For they are all the same and be treated with the same judgment – imprisonment. Even if, people mentioned about rioting on their Facebook account, the UK authorities would send them to jail.
