For just once of the various actions taken by the police, see e.g. http://www.112twente.com/832/Man-aangehouden-voor-verstur... (person was arrested on same day as threat on life was made).
I don't get why your post is still visisble. I would've reported you to the police and/or banned you. And yeah, free speech, but police is also has certain freedoms, such as putting you in jail.

I'd consider that a power, not a freedom.

There are actually laws against willfully wasting police time.
