Internet trolls: What should be the punishment?

Friday August 25 2017

INTERNET trolls will face prosecution for hate crime the same way as if they would have abused people in the street under new legal guidelines.

Hate crimes committed on social media will be taken as seriously as ‘offline’ offences as part of a clampdown on unacceptable cyber behaviour.

The Crown Prosecution Service said bullies will be treated with the ‘same robust and proactive approach used with offline offending’.

What do you think the punishment should be for online trolling? Leave your comments below.
