Shortly after Mark Jongeneel tweeted that a proposal to send 250 migrants to the town of Sliedrecht was a "bad plan," he got a visit from cops who told him to watch what he tweeted, and if there were riots he was responsible. In fact, people across the Netherlands report they have gotten police visits over even very mild criticism of migrants. Cops say they just want to let them know that if there is violence they may face incitement charges.
