Police to make arrests over cartoons protest

by Sunny on 8th March, 2006 at 3:17 am    

Over a month after they took place, the police is planning to make arrests “in the near future” over that infamous protest by the inbreds from Al-Ghuarabaa over the Danish cartoons. BBC reported last night:

Placards were seen threatening a repeat of the 11 September terrorist attacks or the 7 July London bombings. A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “We have been advised today that there are sufficient grounds to arrest individuals for offences under the Public Order Act.

“This includes offences that are racially or religiously aggravated.” He said the expected arrests related to evidence gathered on 3 February.

About bloody time.

    I just went to “The Strangers” website. What a strange bunch.

    There is a hadith of Prophet Muhammed (sallalahu alaihi wa salam), narated by Abu Huraira where he says that Islam came as something strange and would return back to being something strange so give glad tiddings to (Al Ghurabaa) the strangers. It was recorded in Sahih Muslim. That is where they get their name from.

    What are they going to arrest them for? Making threats to kill? Naah - they were waving placards. Threats to kill need to be specific, not merely rhetorical.
    S. 4 of the Public Order Act? Certainly, but its a pissy little offence - tryable in the magistrates only, I think.

    I wonder what they will come up with.

    Oh, and the whole ‘racially aggravated’ business is comically misused. It is largely used to increase the sentence handed down to people who get into pub fights and call each other everything under the sun, and throw in a racial epithet.

    Also, from recollection, the prosecution policy for charging racial aggravation is premised upon the ‘perception of the victim’ that an offence is racially aggravated.

    They must have had some chants right? They can’t have been waving the placards silently?

  6. David T — on 8th March, 2006 at 3:27 pm  

    Yeah, but very clearly they weren’t going to be taken by anybody as anything more than a bit of rhetoric.

    That’s why I bet they’ll be charged with s 4 of the POA

    A person is guilty of an offence if with intent to cause a person Harassment, Alarm or Distress he uses threatening abusive or insulting words or behaviour or disorderly behaviour OR he displays any writing, sign or other visible representation which is threatening, abusive or insulting, thereby causing that or another person harassment, alarm or distress. The offence may be committed in a public place or private place but there is no offence if the act is done by a person inside a dwelling and seen only by a person also inside that dwelling.

    Max. Sentence Magistrates Court :6 Months

    Perhaps they’ll get 4 months or even the full 6 on the basis that it was “racially aggrievated”. Ooooh!

    This is a piece of law that is usually used to arrest drunks shouting in the street at 3am. How facile to use it against the Muhajies.

    haha. s 4 of the POA

  8. jamal — on 9th March, 2006 at 12:14 am  

    It actually said s. of 4 POA, whatever that is.

    I actually thought it was section 5, but then due to the content of some of the banners, there are other more serious offence that they could be arrested under.

    After its all died down, after the individual who dressed like a suicide bomber apologised after everything is over and no credible muslim organisation has supported those views…why bother? ffs let it go, be grown up and accept people have different opinions.

    Anything that trawls in the odious self important little s-t Anjem Choudhary, and shuts him up for a few months, gets my vote.

  12. Sunny — on 16th March, 2006 at 11:17 pm  

    Heh. You will get your wish soon enough rockette.

    Re: Anjem Choudhary’s impending incarceration.

    About damn time, I say.

    Why they don’t also charge him with treason, I have no idea.
