Abolish the Hate Crime Act
'I disapprove of what you say, but will defend to the death your right to say it.' *
Thirteen men and one woman were arrested at a private farewell party under the Scottish Hate Crime Act. One 'friend' in attendance, thought to be a man called Judas Iscariot, reported 'the blasphemous and hateful talk' around the dinner table to the authorities.
Police Scotland's Chief Super, Bill Smart said he was 'shocked and appalled, and was driven almost to tears', at the accusations. He continued, 'Scotland is a country of lovers, not haters. Scotland is a safer place now that arrests have been made'.
Police Scotland further announced that 'while it may prove difficult to keep the ring-leader under lock and key for more than a few days his speech-crimes demand the full weight of the law to be brought to bear on this heretic.'
All thirteen were tasered, cuffed, battered and bruised and thrown into an awaiting police van. As it sped the scene, the local MSP shouted, 'Imprisonment is too good for the likes of them, they should be crucified'.
A report has been sent to the Procurator Fiscal.
