No further action by police

Having received complaints in relation to Paris Brown’s comments on Twitter, Kent Police say they'll be taking no further action over Paris Brown's comments on twitter. In a statement they said:

Section 127 of the Communications Act makes it an offence to send a message through a public electronic communications network that is grossly offensive and there must be intent or awareness that the message was grossly offensive, indecent or menacing.

Whilst some of the language used is offensive, particularly the comments which derogatorily refer to particular social groups, we do not believe they are grossly offensive.

We have spoken to the CPS about our findings, and given them our view that this case does not pass the evidential threshold for prosecution"
