Hopkins Hits Back Over Reported Tweets

Katie Hopkins has criticised people who 'dial the cop shop' when they feel offended online.

Hopkins was berated online after she wrote on the site about ``little sweaty jocks'', adding: ''Sending us ebola bombs in the form of sweaty Glaswegians just isn't cricket.''

In a separate message, she tweeted: ``Glaswegian ebola patient moved to London's Royal Free Hospital. Not so independent when it matters most are we jocksville?''

Police Scotland confirmed they were looking into complaints they had received, but no report had been submitted to the Crown Office prior to the start of the New Year public holiday.

Writing in the English edition of the Sun, Hopkins said: ''I have always maintained the Boys in Blue have far better things to do than police Twitter.

''But instead of argument, reasoned debate, discussion or avoidance, we now dial the cop shop every time we feel offended online.

''Since when did telling teacher ever solve an argument in the playground?

''The freedom to say only things that are polite is no real freedom of speech at all.''

Hopkins' column does not appear in the Scottish Sun.
