i wonder if people would think the same had he, even sarcastically, said the same comments verbally.
yeah of course.
So he makes a direct threat of violence against a specific target, but people like Louise Mensch condemn any investigation and celebrate his release... but when someone else makes a direct threat of violence against a specific target people like Louise Mensch are probably quite pleased when he's convicted...
like fuck he is
Also I'm so bored of people misunderstanding the world 'troll'.
But neither are black and white, it's a sliding scale. So you might feel pretty safe in concluding that the airport threat was a joke. But what if he'd said: 'Just got pulled over by a police motorbike for speeding, next one I see I'm running them over', or ' Nottingham town centre Mcdonalds just messed up my Big Mac, I'm coming back with petrol and burning the place', or 'Can't believe Cheryl just sent my favourite act home, I'm going hang out by the studio and stab her'. How do you know they're jokes are not? Some people are mental, we might think the fact they're advertising their criminality on twitter is proof they're not serious, but they might not think like that. Plenty of people tweeted / facebooked the shit they were up to during the riots.
Have NEVER messed up my big Mac
My issue is with the wealth of comedians and commentators using every outlet possible to rage against why this was ever an issue in the first place.
and much more threatening and obviously not an obvious joke, it was sent maliciously with the intent to cause fear and distress to an individual which is completely different imho.
if he'd kept his thoughts to himself he could have saved himself a lot of trouble
stuff like that you know
