Spanish Citizens Can be Fined for Criticizing Police

Apparently the Spanish government can fine citizens who refer to its police as “slackers”. “On July 1st, the Spanish government enacted a set of laws designed to keep disruption within its borders to a minimum. In addition to making dissent illegal (criminal acts now include ‘public disruption’ and ‘unauthorized protests’), Spanish legislators decided the nation’s law enforcement officers should be above reproach. This doesn’t mean Spanish cops will be behaving better. It just means the public will no longer be able to criticize them. “
