Mexicans divided on terrorism charges against Twitter users facing possible 30-year sentences - The Washington Post
I think people need to get more information on this before sides are taken. Cartels have been using people to spread terror and rumors of terror, and they have figured out that the Social Media has been more effective against them, than for them. If this was a ploy then it needs to be stopped now, to allow fake reports to go, out is almost as bad as conducting a terrorist attack. If it was a real mistake, then tracking the rumors, will be possible if not easy to do. On the other hand if the Police are working for the Cartels, then this could be nothing more than a ploy to get the tweets to stop warning people.
As I said in the start, more information is needed, if someone wants to help them, than I suggest both a good attorney and good press contact to keep this all out in the open.
