    fair sentence, too long or not long enough? Should he have just got community service?

    What does this mean for DOA and some of our more racial posters?

    Also, where do we draw the line? Should Diane Abbot have gone to prison?

    2 months in jail for being a gobby twat?

    punishment doesn't fit the crime imo, it's complete overkill and a bit worrying that people can get jailed for tweeting, no matter how shit his tweets were.

    There should be no "line". And he's no public figure so he can't incite to actual racial violence. He's expressing his opinions. The moment you jail people for SPEAKING, something is very wrong.

    this seems a bit racey in fairness

    You guys saying it's fine, imagine going up to someone in the street and saying some of the racey stuff above. It's clearly not on.

    Also, apparently if Terry is found guilty, all he can get is a £5k fine? :laughing:

    Right. Remeber that stupid bitch in the bus slaundering everybody off "her country" ?

    Now imagine everybody calling everybody names. Should everybody be jailed ?

    If you think Boris is a fucking cunt should you be sent to jail ? Or if you think the Queen is a old cunt AND say it out loud publicly ?

    Not strictly true, although I agree in principle that it seems an exaggerated charge (as I fail to see how anyone arguing with people on Twitter who were offended is inciting violence) without seeing all his Tweets you can't say for sure. And you don't need to be a public figure to incite something.

    nobody is saying it's ok (as you well know)

    people are saying it's over the top to arrest him (which is what you'd be saying, if anyone actually agreed with him being jailed)

    muamba is a football player who collapsed and basically died for 40 mins or so while on pitch in front of a stadium of people, then this nob started making jokes about him being dead (not illegal tbh) but then got racial.

    that walken bloke is bad but he's a yank in america and I dont think our extradition agreement covers racial incitement / hatred. Dont think we can do anything. Besides, they have different rules about freedom of speech over there

    Weird how things on social networking sites can affect your life.

    Theres a bit of drama in my work at the minute, obviously nothing compared to whats happened here, but here is what happened:

    Guy i work with did a 12 hours shift, and was pissed off at how the management were treating him, so he posts on facebook something along the lines of "pissed off at La Mon (hotel), never get a thank you or recognition for the work you do"

    Another guy seen this, and reported it to the manager,m now theres a big shitstorm kicking up over it.

    Seems like there is a thin line between freedom of speech, and offending people.

    In this Muamba thing, the guy deserved jailtime in my eyes, but the real punishment for him is having everyone he knows hate him.

    this is what people don't seem to be able to grasp - freedom of speech is just that, the freedom to be able to say what you want.

    it doesn't mean there will be no repercussions.

    Inciting to violence and actually succeeding are different things. You have to be someone notorious enough to have that kind of power of influence.

    Following this trend we'll end up in the minority report era, where people get taken down for thinking "inappropiately".

    it's not that thin tbh

    EVERYONE in this country knows it won't end well if you are massively insulting and using racial/religious/skin colour based insults. It's a pretty simple rule.

    Obviously, some races/religions/skin colours are more protected than others but that's a different story

    But how is it freedom of speech if people fear the repercussions?

    This basically, Liam Stacey is free to say what he wants, but he can't start crying about Free speech or its only Twitter when the consequences of his actions manifest themselves in the form of an early morning knock from the Police & 2 months in jail.

    Act like a dick and you deserve to pay the price imo.

    Which is where the problem lies. People shouldn't be persecuted on expressing their opinions, no matter what.

    a nice sentiment but 90% of this country disagree with you, so it won't ever come into effect

    In most european countries legislations you don't need to be a public figure to commit "Inciting to violence" etc.

    It's already the case. At the greatest pleasure of some people.

    Yeah, 56 days in jail for being an average whitetrash retard is really a balanced and effective solution.

    can't really believe people are getting jailed for this kind of stuff, this guy is obviously a prick but still, i think somebody should just be able to punch them square in the face then send them away or something, it can be the new punishment for being a massive cunt on the internet thinking you can get away with it

    also if he happened to get any shit from people in public e.g. getting raped by some black guy with a horse cock he would probably deserve it :teeth:

    LoL, using the same logic we all have the freedom to kill, rape, steal, etc. That doesn't mean there won't be repercussions.

    Are you free enough to decide to stop breathing if you wish ? No.

    Absolute freedom's a myth.

    Totally off topic but have you seen Troll Hunter? It's a German film and is a comedy blair witch style movie. But it's also scary as fuck. Grown man screamin like a little girl scary. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1740707/

    It has to be the best movie ever for all the crap DOA mods have to deal with.
