    I remember back in my day, we had this thing that the Government insured for us, in exchange for citizenship and tax dollars...

    What was it, again?....Damn...twas in the first amendment, anyway.

    Oh. Britain. Whatever.

    Was what he did right? No! Not by any means!
    Was what he did a threat to public safety? No!
    Did he cause anything but (admittedly foolishly placed - silly evolution) hurt feelings? No!

    ...Why is this happening?

    Someone should kill him, and then not post on Facebook about it.

    That was very...disturbing and would be the kind of people that the world DOESN'T need. Its sad how people do change and are unique but these behaviors are not expected. I would rather feel better if he was in jail longer, even tho the victims are dead, respecting the dead is also a factor. >.> I hope they haunt him

    Well you can be a troll if you know the law. It's illegal to create and hide behind a false identity. The funny thing is, if he did that under his own name at least in the US he at most would have had civil liability at most but nothing criminal. It's a good thing he was so stupid.

    This is a form of harassment, which is illegal and there the Communications Act 2003 mention in the article.

    So you wouldn't care if this was done to you?

    I don't think I'd wish death on him, but I'd certainly kick him square in the balls. Hard. And probably several times.

    1. sounds to me like facebook has an issue with him .. not any court.. anyone who seriously thinks this man should be jailed for anything said on the internet needs to go lick their finger and stick it in the power box nearest them while holding their offspring (if they were unfortunate enough to have any) because we have a thing called freedom of speech.. and artistic creation...

    2. if the things said were offensive to you ,you have just as much to write back or not look at the post as he has as much right to post it..


    3. i eat every aborted fetus (lock me up bitch) with a side of black market organs blendered up into a protien shake.


    4. if this was offensive to you .. i dare you to try to get me anything but kicked off this site.

    The first amendment protects political speech, this is most certainly NOT political speech (nor is pretty much anything people cry "first amendment" for).



    Before anybody makes any claim about what's illegal and what's not, and what laws say what, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD GO LOOK THEM UP AND READ THEM.

    You all should know this by now with me being a regular poster here. [​IMG]

    The supreme court has ruled art, parody, and even pornography are covered by the first amendment. Rent the people vs Larry Flint. The first amendment and case law cover all speech except in the most extraordinary circumstances. Even flag burning was ruled protected speech by the high court. Speech that was meant to intimidate other and infringe on their civil rights is not protected. The cross burning case comes to mind.

    Parody's when it comes to freedom of speech versus copyright law (not the case here), and as for pornography and violence ("art" could be any category), those come with enforced ratings and warnings beforehand.


    EDIT: Damn typo.

    Sweet, now if only they could do more to trolls. The internet is one troll cleaner, at least.
