UK Proposes Prison Time For Offensive Online Posts
« on: May 12, 2018, 05:50:46 AM »
Well we now know what to do with the homeless.  Free room and board.  Three square meals and a bed.

The Sentencing Council for England and Wales has drafted new guidelines proposing prison sentences of between 26 weeks and six years for social media posts deemed hostile toward a race, religion or sexual identity.

The proposals have been made in relation to the Public Order Act, which prohibits all activities “intended or likely to stir up hatred” against minority groups, including transgender people. Many of the examples in the document reference social media use.

How is it these morons learned nothing from their own history? How long before revolt begins?
Oh, did anyone notice they slowly disarmed the public?
