In a shameful display of utter contempt by our so-called Justice System, Count Dankula has been found guilty of being “Grossly Offensive” contrary to Section 127 of the Communications Act 2003. His sentencing has been adjourned until April 23rd as the Judge wants a pre-sentencing report before handing down a sentence. According to the Act, “A person guilty of an offence under this section shall be liable, on summary conviction, to imprisonment for a term not exceeding six months or to a fine not exceeding level 5 on the standard scale, or to both.” A Level 5 fine is £5,000. He is also potentially facing a Restriction of Liberty Order and will be assessed. This could involve a GPS tracking device being attached to his person and being placed under house arrest.
When your lawyer does a great job but your judge didnt take a word he said on board. What the fuck!!!!!

The offending video, which cannot be viewed in the UK as it “may be inappropriate or offensive to some audiences”, was published on April 11th 2016 and has an indeterminate amount of views (last known figure was around 3million) as YouTube has hidden the view-count, like-dislike bar and removed the comments, sharing and suggested videos sections. To reiterate, near-all features have been disabled on a video of a dog lifting his paw.
Yet, the claim his video is offensive is untrue on the grounds not a single person complained about it. Scotland’s police force claimed they had received complaints yet they couldn’t seem to find anyone to stand in the box so instead, they had a member of their hate-crime team argue it was “ruining diversity”. The Judge also remarked you “have to keep in mind the reasonable enlightenment of a multi-racial society”. Scottish “justice” is a farce.

Here in Britain, nearly 500 sex offenders are missing yet the police appear to have the resources to indict a man for a joke. We have rape gangs storming the streets violating thousands of children and court cases against more than 20 abusers in the Telford child sex abuse scandal were discarded because they were “too much trouble”. It would appear our “justice” system perceives comedians as a greater threat than child rapists.
Also, British Police are refusing to respond to assaults, thefts and hit-and-run car crashes, Leicestershire Police will only respond to break-ins at properties with even door numbers, ignoring houses with odd door numbers. The Metropolitan Police won’t respond to shoplifting, criminal damage, crimes involving a loss of under £50, car crime and some assaults as these are “lower level” offences and they said CCTV should only be analysed for crimes committed in a 20-minute time frame. Yet, despite all this, the Home Secretary announced last October a new national online hate crime hub, saying the “expert unit will channel all reports of online hate crime and reduce burden on frontline officers”.
According to the hub website, Home Secretary Amber Rudd said “Online hate crime is completely unacceptable. What is illegal offline is illegal online, and those who commit these cowardly crimes should be met with the full force of the law”. People who say things online the state doesn’t like will be met with the full force of the law whereas those who rape children, attack people in the street, steal cars, rob stores, damage property, break into people’s houses, sexually assault people and run people over with their cars will be allowed to walk free because it is too much effort to do anything about them.
Is this real life!?
Criminal Convictions can be appealed, if one has the money but, Legal Aid is available for appeals against criminal court decisions. Failing that, a GoFundMe will likely attract sufficient funds to mount a strong appeal. Complaints can be made to the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office who can investigate criminal convictions and the Crown Prosecution Service can be complained to as well.
You got a spare 24k
