Should you be able to tweet, post or blog whatever you want without fear of reprisals?

As it comes about that the body of the missing Mikaeel Kular have taken the mother into custody after the boy’s body was discovered. Should you be able to comment on the case, on your own blog, twitter or facebook account?

The reason I ask is that Police are in the process of trying to trace someone who posted a tweet about it. Officers said, “If you commit an offence, we will investigate it and you will be prosecuted.”

Is it an offence to post on your own blog, twitter or Facebook? The reason I ask is that surely there is still the freedom to speak your mind. Millions of blogs, posts and tweets are sent every second of the day and night about the most mundane things, the most outrageous things, pictures of body parts you never show anywhere else but online is fair game.

Is this another Politically Correct gone mad?
