Won’t news headlines be talking about this all the time? Have you got any idea what’s the supply of the forwarded communications that you received? Do you bother to discover? Also into your own hands instead if you come across something sensible, isn’t it sane enough to go by the law and not take it? Hopefully public realizes this quickly, before WhatsApp turns every person into either murderers or victims.
