How long will it be until libs in the United States start sentencing people to jail for “hurting other people’s feelings”?
A teenage girl was sentenced to lock-up for 12 months Friday for throwing bacon at the window of a mosque and wrapping a few pieces around the door handles, the BBC reported.
No one would question that desecration of a church of any kind is wrong. The act, committed in January 2013, while unkind and inexcusable, was not vandalism. It damaged nothing and hurt nobody. What ostensibly should have resulted in a fine, an obligation to polish the handles and sweep the floor, turned out to be much more.
Chelsea Lambie, 18, and two friends were convicted by a jury of threatening and abusive behavior in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Douglas Cruikshank, 39, was sent to jail for nine months because he pled guilty, and Wayne Stilwel from Gorebridge, who also pled guilty, received 10 months behind bars.
According to The Scotsman, the sole worshipper inside saw the trio at the door but ignored them, and then heard something hit against the prayer room window, the uncooked bacon.
At the trial, security guard Usman Mahmood explained the offensive nature of the encroachment.
