Northumbria, England, police have arrested three young men for making a Snapchat video mocking the death of George Floyd, reenacting Floyd's death in a park. The video went viral on social media. The men, all 18 or 19 years old, have been charged with suspicion of sending communications causing anxiety and distress, and are also reportedly receiving death threats.

  3. Jesus, Great Britain has really gone full bitch, hasn’t it. Hey Reason, are we gonna talk about the supposedly “libertarian” air force sergeant they caught who killed a cop and wounded 2 more? Had explosives and was ready to go full boogaloo, might have been responsible for that van shooting during the riots? Let’s talk about that lunatic

  4. “charged with suspicion of sending communications causing anxiety and distress”

    They don’t allow comments on the British Internet? I guess this is what you get when you allow a woman to rule your country for the better part of a century.

  6. “have been charged with suspicion of sending communications causing anxiety and distress”

    So no left wing politicians can speak in the formerly Great Britain?
    Because I know every time Nancy Pelosi or Chuckles Schumer speak, I get anxious and distressed. Can they be extradited?

  7. Strict censorship would solve these kinds of problems. We need our betters to protect our sensitivities.

  8. charged with suspicion of sending communications causing anxiety and distress

    Charged not with X, mind you — with *suspicion* of X.

    Who will suspect the suspecters?

  9. “The men, all 18 or 19 years old, have been charged with suspicion of sending communications causing anxiety and distress, and are also reportedly receiving death threats.”

    So no arrests of the people sending death threats? No investigation of the death threats? Don’t death threats also cause anxiety and distress?

    1. Rules for thee but not for me. Expect this to become the norm if the Dems succeed in November.

  10. This is what we get for letting women (and men who think like, or in England dress like, women) vote.
