Spike got mixed up in the politics of the situation, like so many, and didn't think about how this scenario played out. Yes, it was a tragedy, split second decisions - but racism was not involved and Spike hopped on that bandwagon.

The bottom line with this tale is 'consequences'.

I liked the female broadcaster at the end, when she said that the internet was no 'magical wonderland' and things can have 'consequences'.

At least Spike took the flack and admitted he was stupid to do it.

But the real result for that old couple could have been horrific had some enraged reader decided to take the law into their own hands.

Just like in real life, some actions on the internet can have serious 'consequences'.
