My partner was once issued with repeated death threats, including a MAC 10 attack by a vicious, drug-dealing cretin neighbour who had just been visited by some serious villains. Sod all was done. Later the same turd and his partner fire-bombed a house round the corner and intimidated witnesses. This and a serious assault did lead to court sentence 18 months later.
So what is some poor sod who just tweeted some obvious rubbish doing in court? I’m all for people issuing threats being sent down, preferably within minutes of making the threats. It doesn’t happen and bullying generally gets no response. Old women and disabled people are subjected to what is really daily torture and nothing is done. So how do our increasingly mad cops, prosecutors and judges manage a farce like this? I’d like them arrested for no sense of humour, but they’d legislate, tell us jokes no one but them could find funny and send us to jail!
What really gets me is cops, CPS and the system just can’t throw their hands up and put themselves forward on charges of wasting police time and bringing the whole CJS into disrepute. This is an attack on free speech and gives us every reason not to trust authorities. Moat made much more serious threats that were ignored, presumably because Gadget was dealing with this crap. Not only as IG says can they not spot real threats in thousands of dud ones, they can find time to lose all sense of perspective, humour and decency over trivia. Paul has already been found guilty by one set of clowns – who are they and have they been dismissed? One hopes IG himself would have stopped this barking farce on his watch. It would be interesting to know if he thinks he could have.
