Online hate crime is considered a high priority by the UK/Police.
The Daily Mail in December 2019 that "Britain’s first police unit for tackling online hate crime has brought charges against less than one per cent of internet trolls it has probed." The pilot year resulted in 17 prosecutions, of which 7 resulted in convictions, and cost the Metropolitan Police £326,344.
This is one of the most important issues in society. Government surveillance is needed.
