  3. @gmpolice is 'ranting' the actual conviction?! What does the law define as ranting? Genuinely curious. Thank you.

  16. £40,000/inmate/year, man given 10 weeks "for swearing at police" costs taxpayers £7700. Worth it? #UKRiots @Cheapalock @gmpolice

  17. @ValkyrieSmudge @gmpolice depends if you come across an officer who thinks they are superior to you. Swearing to an equal usually fine ;)
