“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” had its red carpet premiere Monday night with the cast on hand, but the Philadelphia Police Department regrets to inform you that it is powerless to stop those who would post spoilers to social media. It’s a horrible act, but it’s not a crime.
No, posting #StarWarsForceAwakens spoilers is not a crime. Yes, it should be. We enforce the laws – we don't make them. Sorry.

@PhillyPolice @tauriqmoosa What about laws against causing mental and emotional distress?

@PhillyPolice But is it legal to throw batteries at those spoiling the movie?

@WillFNMc Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to throwing batteries. Throwing batteries leads to prison. So, uh, no.
