14 year old detained on terror offences

"A 14-YEAR-OLD Blackburn boy accused of encouraging a man in Australia to carry out a terrorist beheading and attack a war remembrance event has been remanded in youth detention."
"The teenager, thought to be the youngest charged with Islamist-related terror offences in the UK, was arrested last weekend over an alleged Anzac Day plot."
"He was remanded in custody to youth detention accommodation by District Judge Emma Arbuthnot at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London."
"The boy, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was charged yesterday with two counts of inciting terrorism overseas."

A 14 year old boy makes stupid comments on the internet which lead him to being detained on terror offences.  What happened to proportionality and common sense ?
