British police investigated Tim Loughton, a Conservative member of parliament, for six months after he described a constituent as "unkempt." Kieran Francis had written Loughton about some problems he was having with his local council. Loughton wrote him back, siding with the council. Francis said the term "unkempt" was obviously a racist insult, since he claims to be of Romany descent. Police ultimately decided not to file charges of malicious communication against Loughton.
It took a jury 26 minutes to decide that Jonathan Vanderhagen wasn't guilty.
A court ruled that officers did not have enough information to know whether or not stealing violates the Constitution.
This vote is "a hopeful sign that the harmful policies of marijuana prohibition will soon be a relic of the past."
Jonathan Vanderhagen believes a judge doomed his son to an early death. The judge says Vanderhagen's Facebook posts were intimidating.
