Tee Hee

I think the keffiyeh should be black and white, but it made oi larf.

and not quite so amusing ... shouldn't this attack on Christians be a religiously aggravated crime ?

42 offences since 1997, the latest of which is threatening kids with a baseball bat, and he gets just 9 months. Unbelievable. Still, as you say, the victims were only Christians.

(Re the keffiyeh - the away strip, perhaps?)

One would have thought either the victims' Christianity would have to be the primary motive behind the commission of the offence, or else merely because they were not part of the offender's faith, for a religious aggravation to exist.

Do such circumstances apply here?

mk: For it to be a religiously aggravated crime the victims must be muslim.

The law doesn't actually say that, but that's what the law was designed for.

Just as the cartoon row has settled the argument of whether or not the death sentence acts as a deterrent this clown’s behaviour seems to have settled the nature nurture argument regarding the causes of criminality!
