Will Killing Hate Speech Kill Freedom of Speech?

English

The article "Will Germany's new law kill free speech online?" written by Patrick Evans and posted September 17, 2017 on BBC News portrays the fear surrounding a new law in Germany.

This rises concerns for some, as "hate speech" is not something clearly defined.

Peace keepers to blame

English

David Bell wrote for CBC News on August 30th 2017 about 3 police officers being blamed for kidnapping and assaulting a man who allegedly had important information on a subject that they were investigating. Other police officers say they are completely behind the three charged officers and defending them. The real problem here is that if the people charged for these crimes were not police officers, no one would support them like that and they would probably get in much more trouble. I believe this source is reliable because CBC news is a reliable news source.
