Where is the justice?

Following on from our post about people being imprisoned for giving offence to others online and through nasty messages written on clothing, this story from Northamptonshire underlines how crimes of violence are being ignored as prosecutors seek to clamp down on what people think and say.

What provides society with the greater protection?  Prosecuting offensive people for what they think and say resulting in them being jailed, or refusing to prosecute a thug who has committed a violent assault resulting in physical injury and leaving him at liberty on our streets?

These things don’t happen without an agenda at play behind the scenes.  As James Higham, in the comments on the previous post rightly says, ‘thin edge of the wedge all right’.

Rather than celebrate the jailing of people who have done nothing but offended others with sentiments (not incitement to violence or crime) however disgusting, we should be very concerned about how speech is being criminalised.

    It’s not just what you Tweet or wear on your T-shirt that’ll get you arrested.

    Today, the Beeb reports that 11 males, aged between 15 and 42, were arrested for playing “contentious” tunes!

    XX Police said 11 males, aged between 15 and 42, were arrested on suspicion of provocative conduct XX

    “They were arrested for provocation. NOT “contentious tunes”. The music was EVIDENCE. NOT the reason for arrest.

    Regarding the Northumbria report/link.

    Only one answer. You know where he lives, and I am sure their are a lot of really big heavyweight mates around that could go and show him an example of what MAY happen if he does it again?

    I wonder how long it’ll be before some Muslims decide our National Anthem (the bit about God save the queen) is “provocative” and demand the arrest of the Governors of the Beeb?

    The CPS are lazy officials who put their fellow legal colleages into shame. Arresting and charging someone because of what they said is easy because what they said is usually online so is easy evidence. Making a case for a crime of violence requires witnesses and oral evidence and trying to make out who is telling the truth or not. Thats hard to do and costs time and money. And the CPS is currently managed by people who work to targets and budgets and not to justice.

    Different situation any you know it.

    If they declared it provocotive, and you went to a mosque with the full wetminster boys choir and circled the place for an hour singing it, then that too would be provocation.

    Playing “The Sash”, or “Roddy McCaully” on the radio would NOT.

    If you’d like to go further, my own father, Ralph Winstanley was killed in his bed – when he had not been dying – on 23 April 2004. This was done on the back of a number of lies told by the woman who still lives in the place where he was killed. (No need ot run away then?)

    We are still waiting for the start of a police investigation. South Yorkshire, so they take their time.. Of course senior officers have regularly lied about the start of an investigation.

    What I wonder is: “What is going on in Doncaster?”

    You will find links to many documents which prove that he had not been dying but was deliberately killed:

    IPCC will do nothing. GMC will do nothing. NMC will do nothing. CPS has never been approached by the police, and will do nothing unless it is. Home Office, will do nothing. Queen has issued three of her Police Medals to this force during this time.

    I could go on for considerably longer.. but it would get tedious… as this nearly 9 year wait for justice already has.

    Justice is not a word which rings true in this country.. since there is none.
