    I don't know how they would decide what broke copyright laws.At least in the US, you are allowed to use a limited amount of copyrighted material ... such as a picture from a movie ... under certain circumstances, which (IIRC) memes qualify under.

    Well I think one of the many reasons is because they know that during the police investigation their dignity will be raped. - police will ask a lot of questions that suggest  that the victim had it coming to them or are lying. Cheers!
