"A man in the United Kingdom was subjected to a thought police investigation by authorities in Humberside after he criticized transgenderism. The individual, who goes by the name 'Harry the Owl' on Twitter, previously tweeted 'trans women are not women'. In a 10 tweet threat on the incident, Harry explains how he first got a call from his boss informing him that the police wished to speak with him. After calling the police, Harry was told by an officer 'representing the LGBTQ community' that someone had reported him for hate speech and it was the duty of the police to check if he employed any trans people because they would not be in a safe working environment.
1. Got a call from Director, saying cops wanting to speak to me. He’d had sense not to give out my number, but said he’d pass on details. I rang.— Harry The Owl - Limerick Criminal (@HarryTheOwl) January 23, 2019
After admitting that the '30 tweets' being investigated were not criminal in any way, the officer then bizarrely read a limerick before labeling the matter a 'hate incident' and asserting that there was a victim (despite no crime having been committed).
3. Cop said he was in possession of 30 Tweets by me. I asked if any contained criminal material. He said.... No. I asked if any came close to being criminal... and he read me a limerick. Honestly. A limerick. A cop read me a limerick over the phone.— Harry The Owl - Limerick Criminal (@HarryTheOwl) January 23, 2019
5. So, I’ve added to a statistic, even though there is no crime, which brings me to my next point. The cop repeatedly called the complainant ‘the victim.’ I asked how there could be a victim if, as he’d established, there was no crime. He said, that’s just how it works.— Harry The Owl - Limerick Criminal (@HarryTheOwl) January 23, 2019

Finally, he lectured me. Said, ‘Sometimes, a woman’s brain grows a man’s body in the womb and that is what transgender is.’ You can imagine my response,” said Harry.
The officer then told Harry to watch his language otherwise he would be fired from his job for hate speech.
In the United Kingdom, so-called 'hate incidents' are recorded as such if the offended person perceives themselves to be a victim, a standard which does not require any crime or misdemeanor to have taken place.
As I document in the video below, despite the UK being hit by soaring violent crime rates and only 9% of actual crimes ending with suspects being charged, more police resources are being devoted to patrolling online speech."
