But the article tells only of causing offence.
And of course the thought police will have the final say on what is ”appropriate”, with little care for the violation of the very basic of all freedoms, freedom of speech. All we are left to assume from this 4th rate news article however, is that he said something ”offensive”, nothing about what he supposedly threatened the Islamic beachhead with.
I submit then, in light of the move by the state to punish anyone ”giving offence to another, every time a Muslim opens his or her mouth about their ideology, they are arrested, because it offends not only me but many others as well.
NOTE: Real free speech includes the right to say things that are offensive, including the truth.
Teenager arrested over alleged mosque threat on Facebook
Updated 1:05pm Sunday 13th July 2014 in News
A TEENAGER has been arrested after allegedly posting a racist threat against a mosque on Facebook.
Leon Richmond, aged 18, from Smithills, is alleged to have made an “offensive” comment about the proposed new mosque in Blackburn Road, Astley Bridge, on a Facebook page.
He has been bailed by police, who have warned that more arrests will follow.
The proposed mosque, which was given approval by Bolton Councilmembers earlier this month, will be built on a plot of land off Canning Street.
Det Insp Charlotte Cadden, from Bolton North Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of making racial threats to cause criminal damage.
“This is the first of a number of arrests we will be making.
“People seem to think they can make racially offensive comments online with impunity but they can’t because it’s offensive and people are rightly concerned.
“If you have put something like that online I would advise you to remove it.
