"Once something like this (alleged bomb threat) is reported to them they do not have the luxury of being able to just ignore it no matter how credible they think it is"
Sorry to disagree, but if there was an easy way of checking the facts -e.g. reading the tweet- before bothering an innocent citizen, they should have done that. On top of that, why the heck did they have to 'interview' him for several hours? Stupidity? functional illiteracy? Incompetence? Sadism?
The cops who did this should be reprimanded, at the very least.
