Chinese Police Detain Internet Users

Imagine how many people in the U.S. would have to be detained for posting false information on the internet? There wouldn't be enough police on the planet to tackle that "crime." eek!

Chinese police have begun to detain and punish people for spreading rumours online, the government said on Tuesday, as authorities intensify efforts to censor content on the Internet. A university student in southwest China's Yunnan province was detained for disseminating fake information on a local murder, the State Internet Information Office said, while a man in Shanghai was taken into custody for 15 days for posting falsified tax documents online.
