    Pair jailed for web race crimes

    "Two men have been jailed after becoming the first in the UK to be convicted of inciting racial hatred online.

    Simon Sheppard, 51, of Selby in North Yorkshire, received four years and 10 months, and Stephen Whittle, 42, of Preston, two years and four months.

    The men printed leaflets and controlled websites featuring racist material."


    BBC NEWS | UK | England | North Yorkshire | Pair jailed for web race crimes

    seems abit extreme to me 4 years must be more too this than whats written here.

    How so? Everytime I hear of some crazy ass law, or conviction in another country, it makes me love America even more. Did you know that there was an effort in the UK a few years ago to outlaw butcher knives? And, now, free speech is going right on out the window, too.

    the concept of jailing people for a website is way more offensive then the actual content of their site.

    If British prisons are anything like American prisons, all this is going to accomplish is radicalizing them further-- and giving them more contacts in the White Supremacist movement.

    Brilliant play. Really.

    The content of the site and their overall message is repugnant, but I take serious issue with the governments act to silence them.

    Echoing the sentiments of others here...I'm grateful to be living in the U.S. where this has not yet become our nightmare.

    Wow...so they basically made being an asshole illegal in Britain. I really don't understand that country, they really have no respect for the rights of the individual, such as freedom of speech and press. Wow.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
