Censors To Hate: Alison Saunders, Crown Prosecution Services

There is no complete list of censors to hate, but take all the posts marked censorship as a starting point for an incomplete list.

Alison Saunders in Hate is hate. Online abusers must be dealt with harshly announces the bizarre proposition:


the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) today commits to treat online hate crimes as seriously as those committed face to face.

Not distinguishing between face to face versus online hate crimes places the value of a University of Leeds legal education in question.

Unlike a face to face hate crime, all online users have access to an on/off button to immediately terminate any attempt at a hate crime.

Moreover, applications worthy of use offer a variety of filtering mechanisms, by which an intended victim of a hate crime can avoid contact with a would be abuser.

Saunders claims 15,000 hate crime prosecutions in 2015-2016, but fails to point out their conviction rate was 82.9%. More hate crimes prosecuted by the Crown Prosecution Service than ever before.

If these were all online crimes, Saunders and the CPS would be prosecuting almost 1 in 5 cases where no crime was committed.

Or put differently, there is a four out of five chance if charged with a hate crime, you will be convicted.

Are you more or less likely to make a strong objection or post if there is a four out of five chance you will be convicted of a crime?

Check your local laws before acting on any hatred for Alison Saunders or Crown Prosecution Services.

Citizens of the world must oppose censors and censorship everywhere. If you can’t criticize local censorship, speak out against censors elsewhere.
