A man’s house was trashed by police officers after he had tweeted something that was deemed to be anti-Islamic. But, he didn’t take this treatment lying down…nope, not at all.
From the Conservative Tribune:
According to the U.K. Telegraph, all charges were dropped against Matthew Doyle, a 46-year-old South Croydon man who had posted the controversial tweet after the Brussels attacks last week. He was charged with race hate, but London’s Met Police were informed they did not have the authority to make the charges.
The whole situation doesn’t sit well with Doyle, a partner in a London-based talent and PR firm. He was charged last week after a tweet that read, “I confronted a Muslim women (sic) in Croydon yesterday.I asked her to explain Brussels. She said ‘nothing to do with me’. A mealy mouthed reply.”
“I cannot understand why I was detained, my flat trashed, my passport seized and two PCs, two tablets and my phone taken,” Doyle said, according to the Telegraph.
“I was denied a shave, shower, food. I was stripped of any dignity to appear in court without looking like a disheveled hobo that I am not,” he said, adding that “nameless Twitter trolls” were responsible for pushing for his arrest.
Words escape me…
