UK Arrests Islam Critic For Reporting On Grooming Gang Trial

Quote:
Anti-Islam activist Tommy Robinson was arrested Friday outside of a British court hearing on a gang accused of forcing women into sex, prompting protests Saturday.

Robinson was livestreaming on Facebook outside of a Leeds court when police arrested him for allegedly breaching the peace, according to The Independent. The Independent attempted to downplay Robinson’s claim of reporting on the grooming gang trial by putting “reporting” in quotes.

Video shows Robinson being whisked off by police as he demands to know the reason for his arrest. “This is ridiculous, I haven’t said a word…I’ve done nothing,” he said.


Robinson was sentenced to 13 months in jail for the crime, while the judge prohibited reporting of the verdict within the United Kingdom. No major British outlet reported on the sentence, and Breitbart redacted Robinson’s name from its report on the case.

You DO know that the UK has different laws than the U.S., right?

I don't see Sabcat's posts, but it's worth pointing out that 'the UK' doesn't arrest anyone. Arrests are made by particular police forces as the law requires.

What was he arrested for? Disturbing the peace. Ok, what peace was disturbed?

Never been to the British Isles and correct me if wrong but the UK is England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. That dude got arrested, convicted and jailed for what I can only guess is Contempt of Court.

That to me is one of the points about this issue, which is that they don't have freedom of speech & freedom of the press over there in that authoritarian kingdom.

Pay no attention to that man behind the prison wall at the Ministry of Love and the story he's trying to tell that went into the memory hole, it's just Russian propaganda:

They're doing it to help Trump (somehow, I don't know how but I'm sure that's what they're up to).

He had it coming. If he'd released footage that he'd taken it could prejudice witnesses in the trial. Interfering in a legal trial is, of course, ILLEGAL.

Was there a gag order in place?

If a reporter reports on a case that has a gag order in America, they're charged as well.

Black pigeon speaks on the subject. Good, short video. The arrest is in the begining.

The craziest part of this is how the state has silenced all reporting on this subject in the UK. Very, very 1984.
