Police probe into anti-Semitism claims against Labour members

Post by Guest on Fri Nov 02, 2018 12:15 pm

Police have launched a criminal inquiry into allegations of anti-Semitic hate crimes within the Labour Party.

Met Police chief Cressida Dick told the BBC her officers were assessing online material because it appears "there may have been a crime committed".

It comes after LBC Radio obtained what it said was an internal Labour document detailing 45 cases, involving messages posted by members on social media.

Ms Dick says the Met had a duty to assess the material and not dismiss it.

She told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that her officers were seeking advice from the Crown Prosecution Service.

But she insisted the Met was "not investigating" the Labour Party itself.

This is not a US problem. We have freedom of speech ensconced in our First Amendment.

So death threats is not a US problem and backed by the first ammendment?

I think not

To me personnally, a hate crime verbally, should only be based on a specific threat. Which happens to be the case here on many of the examples. Police should not have to waste time on hateful/racist/homophobic etc name calling, but specifically targeted verbal threats.

What should happen, is people being exposed for their hate, to their employees and social media. In other words, publish what they have said. They will then end up ostracizing themselves by their own hateful stupidity

There is nothing about death threats in the OP piece.  That is a red herring that you have made up.

The discussion is over hate speech.  Speech is constitutionally protected in the US unless connected with an act of violence. Even then, it is usually only an enhancement.

Just one example

LBC said the allegations included threats against MPs, including a message on Facebook that a female Labour MP was a "zionist extremist...who hates civilised people" and is "about to get a good kicking"

This is the UK and not the US and again I have made my views clear on threats and freedom of speech, which as seen you avoided and wanted to talk about the US

Its you misdirecting the debate, as per usual, becuase you want to as ever measure dicks, between the US and Britain

What you gloss over, is the actual fact of antisemitism

Which is ironic, is based on you thinkking that Trump is promoting antisemitism, based on what he says, that you want him impeached

You need to make your mind up mate

Talk is metaphor. When Republican President GW Bush lost Congress in the 2006 mid-terms, he called it an "ass kicking".

Do you remember Sarah Palin's infamous 'crosshairs' map, which targeted legislators who voted for Obama's health care bill? That map was criticized as an incitement to violence.

The language of war or violence is often employed in politics.

See, you are not actually interested in the problem of antisemitism are you?

What has a map got to do with individuals making individual threats?

Seriously?

So you as a judge have no comprehension of criminal law then, based on actual threats?

It's not avoiding anything. We're still talking about anti-semitism and MP's. We're talking about how politicians often use metaphors that are just political rhetoric.

With physical threats?

You see this is what is wrong with you Quill

When its the left, according to you. Its metaphors in what they say, even though you have not the faintest idea what they mean. When its the right, according to you. Its a danger to society, and they should be shot at dawn

Words are protected by free speech. In the US, we have the First Amendment:

US Constitution wrote:Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

I'm merely saying that in the US we don't have hate speech laws, unless they are coupled with threats or acts of violence.

How can I be wrong when I substantiate all my claims? Do you not see the direct language, above, out of the US Constitution?

The only people who are wrong are those who can't substantiate their claims. Evil or Very Mad

Yes we know words are protected but threats are not protected are they Quill?

You do have hate speech laws, based on direct threats

A map is not a direct threat.

You see, I know th US constitution better than you

I mean in the US, threats of bodily harm are called assualt are they not?

And you claim to be a lawyer?

Desperate cries for help, have we here?  I've already said that threats of violence and words spoken during an act of violence are hate speech in the US.  You're just parroting what I say, and adding a few insults to boot.

However, as to verbal assault:

Free Dictionary wrote:The act required for an assault must be overt. Although words alone are insufficient, they might create an assault when coupled with some action that indicates the ability to carry out the threat. A mere threat to harm is not an assault; however, a threat combined with a raised fist might be sufficient if it causes a reasonable apprehension of harm in the victim.

Obviously, during a physical assault, the overt act element is met.

Otherwise, we in the US have no limits on free speech.

So now back track

Is the above what you said in your first or second reply to me?

Nope

Using a dictionary is also not what the US law states is it Quill?

Now that was a bad case of a dishonest lawyer

What does the US law state based on threats Quill?

Now i am going to give you a chance to post what it does says, not what an english dictionary says

Do you see how you are constantly disingenuous?

This is why people do not take you seriously, as you lie

Fuck it, lets just embarress you


In the United States,[where?] assault may be defined as an attempt to commit a battery. However, the crime of assault can encompass acts in which no battery is intended, but the defendant's act nonetheless creates reasonable fear in others that a battery will occur.[

Assault is typically treated as a misdemeanor and not as a felony (unless the victim is a law enforcement officer)[citation needed], or in New York State for example if the offender is a repeat offender. As a misdemeanor, however, it can still result in incarceration and in a criminal record. The more serious crime of aggravated assault is treated as a felony.

Four elements were required at common law:

The apparent, present ability to carry out;
An unlawful attempt;
To commit a violent injury;
Upon another.

What did I just say? You are parroting back to me what I just said: the first element in your list: "The apparent, present ability to carry out;"

I said: "A mere threat to harm is not an assault..." And here you are, puppy-dogging behind me, saying: "the apparent, present ability to carry out..." is necessary for verbal assault.

One of your many, many rabbit-holes is to race around chasing your own tail.
