60 days jail for showing beheading video on his mobile

Ok, I know it's disgusting. But it happens all around the world. I suppose it 'offends our Western sensibilties' (as a Guardian journalist once described suicide bombings). See BBC article.

But, I mean christ almighty above - 60 days in prison for showing someone a video off the net?

OK the guy sounds like a bit of twat, but an overreaction or what? Correct me if I'm wrong.

To be honsest with you, you can't truly know what goes on in the world by watching the News at 6. Atrocities are being committed all around the world (many) by Islamic fundamentalists - Iran, Pakistan, Darfur, Iraq, the list goes on & on. The shock of seeing such disgusting acts, would in my hope of hopes allow for positive change. Without awareness these things will cary on.

Why the fuck can't people draw attention to it? Try visiting Apostates of Islam.

    This is a great blog. You definitely aren't pulling any punches.

    To be honest, I know that there are people who don't realise the meaning of life is to enjoy it while it lasts. I don't think I'll follow your link!

    Still the 60 days is strange. They seem ("They" being whoever you want it to be: judges, the government, the Lib Dems) to have some strange ideas about sentencing though - there are examples all over the place of people committing violent and unprovoked assaults getting lighter sentences than other crimes that are considered less severe in the real world.

    The only positive example of late is Ian Huntley who, aside from the death penalty, got the punishment he deserved - the rest of his life in prison (to all intents and purposes).

    I understand and agree with you that a disturbing visual can sometimes bring awareness but you are asuming good and intellegence are dominate forces. Children are also being raped around the world should we post links to this too? Everybody ALREADY knows that these things happen and nothing stops, just knowing is tramatizing enough for me. I fear people who whould actually want to SEE these things would do so out of couriosity or illness there are alot of sick ordinary fucks out there. (yourself not included because i understand what you are trying to do here and I do not mean to insult you.) but consider the abundant photographic trail of horror left by the nazis, we have all seen it, yet as your entire site points out war and genocide continue. frustrating isnt it. you can show people but you can not make them care.

    The on line report to the Daily Mirror is gone, but I got the impression from that that he was gloating over it, and showed it to the girl to deliberately terrify her.
    As a chat up line - 'ere Darlin' wanna see my beheading video? - it leaves a lot to be desired.
