I'm gonna start this off with one of the most mind-bogglingly stupid and horrid excuses for arresting someone, taken verbatim from the linked article:
"The email, concerning a planning appeal by a gipsy, included the phrase: ‘It’s the 'do as you likey' attitude that I am against.’ Council staff believed the email was offensive because ‘likey’ rhymes with the derogatory term ‘pikey’."
Being arrested because you used a word that ☺☺☺☺ing rhymes with an offensive word? Are you all ☺☺☺☺ing HIGH!? So I guess I can get arrested if I'm writing a play and mention a "kite" since it sounds like "kike". Or I could be sent to the slammer for using the word "digger" because it rhymes with "☺☺☺☺☺☺". These bureaucrats in England should be killed until they are dead. There's a reason it's called the "Nanny State". And Fark? They have a Florida tag, but what they really need is an England tag for all the pathetic, insane ☺☺☺☺ that comes out of that country.
Near the end of the article, it states: "Sussex Police said they had arrested the businessman over ‘suspicion of committing a racial or religious-aggravated offence.'" ☺☺☺☺ me with a forklift this is the stupidest reason to arrest somebody. Whenever you open your mouth, there WILL be somebody on this planet that can and will get offended by what comes out of it. There is no right to not be offended. If there was I'd have been arrested many times over for what I put in this blog. Hell, in my stand-up I've thrown around Bibles, told God to blow me, compared Jesus with Hitler, and made many more comments that are probably directly offensive to lots of people. Speech should not become an arrestable offense. Englishpeople: take back your country. It's rapidly turning into a facist state, and with the American government being best friends with England I'm worried about how soon it'll be until this kind of asshattery starts appearing in my country.
The NRA has a saying about guns: "From my cold, dead hands!" Well, you will only take my speech, no matter how offensive it might be, only after I've taken my last breath. Until then, SUCK IT!
