I dunno ...
I think he has a point, actually. Why should it be a crime to offend someone? I don't think you can argue that anybody's suffered any material loss at the hands (fingers?) of this nitwit. They probably _feel_ worse, granted, but why on earth should we criminalise making people feel bad? Is this a new definition of thought crime?
If you still think offending people should be punished, think on this: where do you draw the line? Should there even be one?
Yes, this turkey is a grade-A arsehole, but if we were to make that a crime we'd have 80% of the population in the clink.
