Offensive speech gets jail time.

Offensive speech gets jail time.

A UK judge has jailed a man for 56 days after he posted offensive comments on twitter about a footballer who had a heart attack during a game. He's also been thrown out of his university degree course weeks from graduating. His comments may have been offensive... but do they really justify a prison sentence and ruining his life?

Guess the alarmists weren't wrong after all.

What is so wrong with this? I, for one, welcome the crushing of stupidity with extreme prejudice.
