from Winds of Jihad:
Englishman imprisoned for ‘displaying images that were grossly offensive to the Islamic faith”
Dhimmitude on steroids.
Yet another judge applies sharia law:
Judge Michael Heath told Conway:
“To describe the material you put in your window as grossly offensive is an understatement. There is no place in a civilised society for conduct of that sort and the only sentence I can justify for it is an immediate custodial sentence.”
Conway had no history of similar offending and spent much of his time caring for his elderly father.
“His father has suffered multiple strokes and cannot get out,” said Mr Stanton.
“This defendant involves himself in regular activity such as shopping for his father. That person would suffer should he lose his liberty.”
That of course doesn’t bother dhimmi judge Michael Heath, who deserves more than a simple wake-up call.
Update from the LA Times:
I’m not sure whether professor Jonathan Turley gets free speech:
Western nations appear to have fallen out of love with free speech and are criminalizing more and more kinds of speech through the passage of laws banning hate speech, blasphemy and discriminatory language.
Its not about falling in or out of love, professor. Its about freedom of speech and our freedom as a whole. Without it we are like lambs to the slaughter.
Jonathan Turley is a professor of public interest law at George Washington University.
