I struggle with the logic of this.  It absolutely caused offence to probably hundreds of thousands of people.  BUT the offence was caused by the TV stations showing the damn stupid stunt on TV!  The back garden bullshit was just for their simpleton laughs, its the TV channels that have deliberately caused offence by broadcasting it.  IMO it is them who should be held to account.

In very bad taste and offensive to the more fragile kind, but neither are a criminal offence unless we scrap free speech which is a short road from freedom to dictatorship & much worse. >:( >:( >:( Mistake they have made is bad taste, threat of violence and death threats are all okay as long as it is the right type of left wing view from the constant mock outrage from the left wing ill-liberals. >:( >:( >:( UK MSM have much to answer for with their false framing, sensationalism & moke outrage with the Boys Buggering Corporation always at the forefront for this. >:( >:( >:(

It is important that the Met police ate tied up for 100's of hours along with the courts on this major crime, where it is fortunate they only have a few other minor crimes to spend a fews minutes on creating a crime number for, like the 5 knife murders over the last 6 days. :( :( :(

Never ceases to amaze me how stupid some people are, talk about shit for brains! This day & age if you want to act like complete arseholes you don't go posting your moronic behaviour on line for public viewing.

I don't know exactly how the famiklies and survivors felt about this 'prank' but I can tell you from experience how it feels to hear jokes about killing cyclists by running them over when that is exactly what happened to your own brother when you were young.  It hurts deeply to a point where the suffering can be indescribable, it also drags up buried memories that are less than pleasant to regurgitate.  The majority of good folk can understand this and stay away from such 'jokes' and 'banter'.  The problem is the minority and the only way to get them to change is to get the message out that it is wrong, sometimes the most effective way is through the police/media vehicle.  So while it might seem like PC gone mad there is an important element to the message that makes such idiots think twice the next time they get a bit lairy and for the benefit of everyone.

I also doubt that any actual law has been broken, the link between the act of burning an effigy and actual harm is tenuous and difficult to prove.  However, if through arresting them the police then find other crimes then I sure hope they prosecute to the full extent possible.

If somebody is offended by something on the internet that obviously doesn't concern them they should be made to fill out this report  ::)

Me too, but if, and itís a big if they get caught, I bet it will be a slap on the wrist I would gleefully kick the crap out of anybody capable of doing such a cowardly inhuman thing to a poor old person.

I think quite a few of us may have laughed at ,or told a joke that was not PC or in quite bad taste , I know i have .
Any joke has to pick on someone.  When I was a kid, all jokes started "An Englishman, Scotsman and Irishman".  I also go to see Kevin B Wilson when he's over, but my non-English-descent* mates know I ain't racist, and my female mates know I ain't sexist.

Trouble is, we have bred a whole (useless) society of professional moaners.



*I think that is politically correct enough not to cause public offense.  What I call my friends privately, to their face when arsing around telling jokes, is between me and my mates.  There, hope that settles the 'flakes, and the waste of oxygen that Opti has on his profile.

Having just seen the news about the latest Grenfell outrage...

...the incident was in extremely poor taste, but arresting 5 people is a bit extreme, isn't it?

Yep.....poor taste but not a crime (unless the cardboard model is soaked in petrol and pushed a through somebody's letterbox) ::)

Had the 'Grenfell 6' not handed themselves in, I bet the Met would have devoted more resources into tracking them down than the bastards that did this!  ::)  >:(

Apparently the Met have 900 officer's whose sole occupation is dealing with internet hate crime.  :-\
