An offence, to offend?
Why can't people just understand that part of this free world, is the term free speech?
In society today, far too many people are offended, far too easily. Everyone has the right to an opinion, and no matter what that opinion might be, they have the right to express it. Fair enough, if they want to express their desire to kill all Black men under the age of 50, in the middle of a market square, then they should be locked up, and the key thrown away.
But have the police taken it too far? Has it come to the point where a Police Officer can't mention the word black, female or homosexual in a negative sence, without being branded racist, sexist or homophobic?
Are Police Officers tied up investigating offences that really arn't offences, but allegations of offence?
You don't care if a person is male, female, black, white, gay, straight or an American, if they have broken the law, and they need to come in, they will be arrested. If a person thinks this opinion is racist, homophobic, sexist or Anti American, then they can sue you.
