Re: Criminal acts...
"disorderly conduct" is on the books in the US, not the UK, the same as "lewd and lascivious behavior". Besides which, Channel 4 isn't a court of law and she wasn't on trial.
Otherwise, a certain US football player would have been able to squash the video of him knocking out his fiancee at a Casino.
That went to court, right? Not just to television? This was broadcast for titillation and it just isn't on. There's no defence.
I've seen girls pissing in the street during Hogmanay and felt a bit self-righteous about it, but to put it in the public domain would never cross my mind. People make mistakes and any punishment has to be proportionate to the harm done.
