LOL they arrested a 12 year old over a tweet????
United Shitdom is more NA than European politics and culturewise
europe is a joke. ( brazil is also a joke xD)
i see no problem in arresting racist kids, they should put them into labour camps until they lose their racist thoughts and can be a member of the society
Can't believe that in my country, taxpayers' money goes towards prosecuting preteens for offensive words online, and then the police proudly tweet about it like they're actually doing something useful. The UK becomes more of a joke every day.
Obviously I don't agree with racism, but I'd rather risk being offended than have my words and thoughts policed.
First of all you are getting a few things wrong here..
Ofc one might say. not really big news.
First you mix a bunch of things up with your points.
Talking about freedom of speech overall has nothing to do with saying things thats against the law for good reasons. like its not freedom of speech to be allowed to say you have a bomb when you walk into an airport either, its something that causes problems, the same with racism and threating someone.
But that is ofc just the first mistake you made to try to come up with some point you dont have.
Second trying to make it about European vs something, or in regards to what they have or dont have.
Its a bit like saying all left handed people speak english.
That ofc make no sense, since people that are left handed live all over the world and thus speak different langauges.
You cant speak about different nations with these things.
Sure in many ways Europe work together, not enough ofc, but well we as a race just never really get any smarter and learn from things. however there are different laws and what not, so your point to this makes no sense, has nothing to do with freedom of speech, or Europe as a whole.
But one nation, but again nothing to do with freedom of speech.
Its not hard, freedom of speech dont mean you can say anything you want without anything being read into it.
ofc you have to answer for what you say, and if what you say actually break a law because of the harm those words can cause its an issue.
In the US you are allowed to fire your guns, thats all good. but if you fire them at a person its not really good anymore.
You are allowed to drive a car most places in the world. its all good. until you drive it in to bunch of people, then its not really okay anymore.
But that dont mean you can say they are not allowed to drive a car any more in that nation.
Freedom of speech is speaking your mind on something. not attacking, making threats or causing harm to others.
Words are actually some of the most deadly we have in this world.
Words have killed millions. and to try to simplify it like you do its just proving how dump humans can be, and why we never get pass the same issues, but just keep doing them same mistakes over and over.
Always looking back, what we had, what someone did.
Instead of ahead to what we can get, what we could do.
So silly how people think doing things that have only killed, destroyed and halted us as a race will somehow work or be different the 68948458 time we try it out.
The Sheep follow the flock.
Here in Ro we actually have ... I can say what i want ... from the n word muslims/gipsys/hitler/stalin ... does not matter
Freedom of speech has its limitations, like you can't go around telling you are gonna kill somebody. Just for example in the name of freedom of religion you can't treat women poorly or sacrifice animals. Same goes for any other freedoms.
Calling someone n*gger = freedom of speech? lmao. Expected nothing less from HLTV really
It's not your right to be racist against anyone. Hopefully Sweden follows suite and takes care of youth running rampant on Internet in the same way.
12 yos shouldn't be on the internet without supervision in the first place so good on him that he got caught red handed and have to live with the shame for the rest of his life.
But, the freedom of speech, does not include hate-speach, which this probably is. Multiple racists tweets ey?..
But, i dont expect 14-year-olds of HLTV to understand the difference of that.
I don't see how the ability to threaten people over social media is something worth protecting.
Lol, in my country everybody can say what they want
If only UK police were so focused in preventing those grooming gangs as they are in catching 12 year old children...
I mean, wasn't the police who took a blind eye to the grooming gangs for years in fear they would be called racists ? Raping thousands of white british girls for years by paki, ups sorry, by musl, damnit. BY ASIANS should be considered a worst offence than a 12 year old kid sending instagram messages to a full adult with more than twice his age right ?
UK at it's finest
americans who think europe is 1 country 😂😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣
na is basically a scuffed england
I mean the only country that has codified freedom of speech is America and even there it's being eaten away at by parts of the government and higher education.
Lmao bro what they did is weak as fuck and pretty shitty. Arresting a 12year old boy for saying a few words online? Get over yourself and grow up.
And as for 'europeans having no freedom of speech', when I used to live in eu back 2 years ago, I could say anything offensive about anyone (I still can) without any kind of a problem. No one would care cos no one is brainwashed like americans, or other forms of westeners. I can freely say things about other races, sexualities, and pretty much anyone you can think of (population is 99% white btw) and no one will give a shit, if its funny they'll probably laugh too. The world today is really fucked and its only getting worse
There is freedom of speech only for leftists, if you are rightist, no freedom for you
Imagine disagreeing that Europe has the best freedom of speech in the world when you're from a 3rd world shithole country hahaha and btw 1 anomalous case does not account for the entirety of Europe because this is only happening due to this BLM bullshit that will thankfully die down soon.
being racist isnt what freedom of speech is for
Hey Juan it's been a while (It's Otello)
FREEDOM OF SPEECH DOES NOT GIVE YOU RIGHT TO BE RACIST.
Thanks for coming to my TED talk.
so to you, freedom is about being able to shout racial slurs at minorities without any consequences? And we don't know what freedom is...
Racists are not human, I see no problem
Hurting someone's feelings shouldn't be illegal.
the UK is known for arresting people based on internet comments
