U.K. Man Arrested for his Facebook Postings

This is a dangerous precedent for a Western nation to set. One of the key differences between the West and states like the Russian Federation and the Peoples Republic of China is the right to free speech. I don't see how the British government can now complain about China or any other country's censorship or persecution practices after an outrageous act like this.

The article didn't mention if Facebook cooperated with the British government or was in any way involved. It would be interesting to know if they were.
