A video, which was shared to the Yorkshire Standard, showed a man ripping apart an English translation of the Koran with his teeth and putting it in the toilet before burning it.
The police arrested the suspect on 27 December after people raised concerns for the safety of the person who had posted the video up following a number of public comments made in response to it.
People also called the police complaining about the offensive nature of the video.
Get all butthurt because of a video? Call the coppers, who'll arrest the miscreant who thought that 'free speech' thing actually meant something.
Because it doesn't, especially if it offends a Protected Species.
And there's a bunch of idiots here who'd LOVE to be able to do this to anyone who offends them.
Zero-tolerance stupid and "Well, yeah, he died, but we followed the rules! So shut up."
"We could be looking at a real train wreck after Feb. 15," said Stan Dorn, a health policy expert at the nonpartisan Urban Institute. "People will file their tax returns and learn they are subject to a much larger penalty for 2015, and they can do absolutely nothing to avoid that."
Last I heard the IRS actually has no legal authority to penalize people on this; they're hoping the curse 'IRS' will scare people into complying, and if that doesn't work stealing the fine out of refunds. This is likely to get interesting.
Short version: corn ethanol, aside from being useful for buying votes from farmers, is crap as a 'green' fuel.
Ok, this is wonderful:
If politicians don't pass lots of laws, it's bad(even if we disagree with the laws some want to pass).
If politicians pay attention to people who aren't 'mainstream', it's a threat.
If people insist on holding principled positions instead of compromising all away, "the majority of decent Americans may in frustration come to view an authoritarian government as the only solution to political gridlock — as a lesser evil that has to be tolerated."
And it large part it's because lots of people insist on owning guns.
See? By actually believing the politicians should listen to the boss(us), we're pushing the country toward dictatorship!
This man is an idiot.
