British Police Threaten ‘Action’ Against Supporters of Alfie Evans on Social Media

British Police Threaten ‘Action’ Against Supporters of Alfie Evans on Social Media

by THOMAS D. WILLIAMS, PH.D.

The police of Merseyside England have issued a thinly veiled threat against all users of social media who defend the life of Alfie Evans and accuse the Alder Hey Hospital of gross misconduct in holding him prisoner against his parents’ wishes.

On Facebook, the police force posted a statement “following reports of social media posts being made in relation to Alder Hey Hospital and the ongoing situation with Alfie Evans.”

According to Chief Inspector Chris Gibson, “Merseyside Police has been made aware of a number of social media posts which have been made with reference to Alder Hey Hospital and the ongoing situation involving Alfie Evans.”

“I would like to make people aware that these posts are being monitored and remind social media users that any offences including malicious communications and threatening behaviour will be investigated and where necessary will be acted upon,” the statement warns.

If the Merseyside Police make good on their threat, they will have their work cut out for them, given the number of important public figures who have come out on social media in defense of little Alfie.

Moved by the prayers and immense solidarity shown little Alfie Evans, I renew my appeal that the suffering of his parents may be heard and that their desire to seek new forms of treatment may be granted.

The power of love is defeating the cynicism of those who have pulled the plug. All my support to and his extraordinary parents.

It is one thing for the British authorities to deny him further care, but not letting his parents take him to Rome is inexplicable: https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/04/let-alfie-evans-go-to-rome-editorial/

All Lives Matter, Including Alfie Evans

If we yield to the culture of death and the culture of expediency that permeate government-run health care systems around the world, no lives are safe.

For no apparent plausible reason, the U.K. authorities are forbidding Alfie Evans from being transported to a hospital in Rome, where his life might very well be saved. https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/04/let-alfie-evans-go-to-rome-editorial/amp/?__twitter_impression=true

You’ve said nothing to prove that the state is not forcing Alfie Evans’ to die.

You merely argued that it’s legal for the state to do so. So, what? That’s worse. https://twitter.com/BarristerSecret/status/989283746363924481

There is something badly wrong inside the British judicial & health-care systems. Theresa May or Queen Elizabeth ought to step in to protect from these systems’ depraved indifference to a little boy & his loving parents. https://www.nationalreview.com/2018

We’ve been covering the case for weeks, and tonight is no different. I cannot imagine the rage and grief the parents are going through, losing one legal battle over another. I’m no medical expert, but I believe we need to be having this conversation right now.
