Police in Hampshire, England, arrested Darren Brady for retweeting a meme of a swastika made out of pride flags. Officers told Brady the tweet had "caused anxiety." Brady spent several hours in jail, but following a public backlash, and criticism of the officers by the department's commissioner, Brady was freed without charges, but also without an apology.
