Yes. I'm saying that his threatening tweet wasn't racist, he wasn't prosecuted for his threats. He was prosecuted for his racism, I disagree with the idea that a person can be sent to jail for making racist comments.

He wasn't sent to jail for making racist comments.

He went to jail because the judge decided it was an appropriate punishment for the crime he pleaded guilty to.

The judge seems more annoyed that the kid wasn't praying for Muamba like the rest of the world was.

The crime was making racist comments...

No, the crime is inciting racial hatred.

He should have pled not guilty then the CPS would have had to prove that someone else started to hate black people because of his comments. He didn't so the judge did what all the grief hunters wanted him to do.

Personally, I'd have ordered him to incite racial love for 56 days.

Well-this is only the beginning of taking rights away from people and they learn it that way.
I"m not a racist and part of a minority but this is total bullsh!t because they(governments under law of Agenda 21) made Racism a One Way street.
Nowadays You can only be racist if you are white and christian(I"m not christian).If you are black,yellow,muslim or jew you can tell whatever you want,esspecially to a white without any consequence-they even don"t dare to touch you no matter what you say and they don"t have the jail to put so many people in prison-and there can"t be consequences because the quran or the thalmud are guides for religious racism(google rabbi ovadia yosef racism-if these guy where christian and said what he said he would be destroyed by the press ).
Liam Stacey is an idiot-but he has his right to think and speak what he wants.



TL;DR
I don't need to know every little detail.



The term racist was coined by Trotsky in his book "The History of the Russian Revolution."

Time for hype

I think the problem here is striking that perfect balance. Once we start controlling free speech it's hard to stop. However it is quite naive to think that you can say anything you like anytime you like.
I personally have a bigger problem with how one sided it is (black people are never brought up on racist charges).

It was a hate crime that effects a whole group of people, not just the individual that the crime is targeted at. And besides, Freedom of Speech primarily protects your right to "Peacefully address grievances against the government", not say anything you want. You can't lie to a court, congress or a federal police officer, instead you have a right to say nothing instead of lying lol

Both the UK and USA have freedom of speech, as long as you don't offend anyone and what you say falls within the limits of the powers that be who make the rules.

So that means Belarous has tons of free speech too ;)

Wow what a joke. I'd expect this sort of punishment in Saudi Arabia, but not in Western Europe.
