    The guy is an ass hole but unless he was threatening or stalking someone why send anyone to jail over speech.

    And this is what American liberals want the U.S. to strive to be.

    From the article
    ' prohibiting him from acting in an anti-social way or from using racist language'

    What the actual fuck is going on over there. That's a thing?!?

    england still lives under a hereditary ruler.. we shouldnt be fighting in the middle east, we should be liberating them.

    we also shouldnt be voting for people like clinton that would have the same thing done to us.

    He wasn't he just said to a lady he didn't approve of interracial relationships....and get shipped off to jail. We need to be careful here in the US, this is really what some people want for our country.

    And liberals paint Europe and a bastion of freedom. Its only slightly free because we liberated their dumbasses. Now it looks like they are gearing up for another go at fascism.

    Calling the judge a cunt might have had something to do with it.

    think that was after the fact.

    British Anti-Social laws can be pretty asinine - case in point calling someone the n word in a friendly way vs a unfriendly way.

    Not saying I agree with the 18 month sentence but it's not like this guy was just having a bad day. From the article:

    "It's said custody would be distressing for you but it seems you never learn. This is the ninth time you have breached this order, the same offensive, racist comments and you don't deserve another chance."

    "Hennigan shouted back: 'Go f*** yourself, to which the judge replied, 'you too'.

    Hennigan, of Harlow, Essex, then banged on the glass panel of the dock, performed a Nazi salute and twice shouted 'Sieg Heil' before starting to sing 'Jews gas them all...."


    So the guy approaches a woman with her young children, berates her for no reason. Then goes apeshit at the hearing in front of the judge.

    • John Hennigan appeared in court after racially abusing a black mother
    • He was sentenced to 18 months in prison by Judge Patricia Lynch QC
    • Before Hennigan left the court, he told the judge she was a 'bit of a c***'
    • The judge responded by saying, 'you are a bit of a c*** yourself


    i was going by the cliff note line.

    So, it's illegal to be racist in the UK.

    Learn something new every day.

    What do you think would happen in the USA if you are in court and call the judge a cunt?
