Better than being killed for not agreeing ^, like in many countries. There's nothing you can do except rebel to stop this type of legislation, which noone will.

I'm all for free speech, but I'm also all for stupid arrogant twats getting what's coming to them, so yay.
As others have posted, and despite the fact that racial slurs are pathetic, I can't condone giving someone jail time simply for tweeting some vitriol.

I haven't seen the tweets, but unless they are directly advocating violence, then IMO time behind-bars is unwarranted and unwise.

Give the punk community service instead. Make him do 200 hours working with the people he has been demonizing.

A great opportunity to see if this brat has any potential at becoming a human being.

so much for freedom of speech. Fascism on the rise when people get arrested for speaking their mind.

which of course is pathetic and douchy, but (and maybe im just being american here) not something that should be criminally prosecuted. freedom of speech from government control is a big deal over here though. two months in jail for some comments about a soccer player seems crazy to me.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?
