Cameron Defends Tough Jail Terms for Rioters

Cameron Defends Tough Jail Terms for Rioters: "Prime Minister David Cameron on Wednesday praised magistrates for meting out punishment to rioters one day after two young men were given jail terms for inciting others via Facebook".

No doubt most people will accept that the context of rioting justifies harsher sentences than usual; but the inconsistencies will undoubtedly lead to the Court of Appeal which will undoubted make some revisions.

The social media can be used for good or ill; so I have little sympathy with those who think that inciting riots on Facebook was merely a game.

Our electronic activities are not really virtual!
