harden the **** up
I honestly find the idea of arresting somebody or saying something you don't like online is ludicrous. I mean for got sake, it's an image and some words, big freakin' whoop. Is it in bad taste? Yeah, but that's it. I mean for fuck sake. I'm going to slit the throat of the first person who replies to this.
Is that malicious intent? Am I now going to have the police arrest me for threatening somebody anonymously who i've never met and probably never will?
The only reason the police are going after these people is to make themselves look competent, now they can say with great gusto "in the last year we've made X more successful arrests" and the people will go oooh wow amazing. Meanwhile arrests of actual criminals have dropped as they start hunting down these cyber bullies.
Hey what about Jeremy Clarkson. Didn't he say that all the bankers should be taken out and shot in front of their families? Wasn't that far more malicious, get far more attention. Hasn't he also said on numerous occasions that if a cyclist is in front of him on the road and didn't get out the way he'd run them over?
What about the comedians like frankie boyle who routinelymake jokes about killing people, or people getting killed, aren't they breaking the law in donig so?
No? These figures in the public eye who say this stuff on TV, in public, they aren't breaking any laws? And yet a kid, who does something very similar online, where only a select number of people will see it is a criminal who needs resources wasted on them because of how naughty they are.
Bravo, just bravo on the double standards, and I hope that the money wasted on this shit comes out of your paychecks the next time a load of cops are fired or forced to resign because they wanted to go after the easy cases of kids being twats rather than iuno, stopping actual crime.
