523 Cat_MC_KittyFace Why the fuck would you drop attempted murder charges?
168 nioki23 I won't ever understand how trying to kill someone by driving into them is not treated as attempted murder.
130 nothingtoseeherenope >The Old Bailey heard that Marek Zakrocki, 48, also gave a Nazi salute and shouted “white power” before driving his van at Kamal Ahmed... Oh great. It's come full circle where assholes go from screaming "Allah Akbar" to "White Power" when doing crazy shit.
13 PM_ME_YOUR_CUTE_HATS They let a terrorist out of prison.
61 FieldMarshalFry when the hell are we going to declare Britain First a terrorist organisation? they regularly advocate for violence against minorities, one of their members murdered a MP on the street screaming "Britain First" and "Freedom for Britain", this knucledragger attempted a terror attack, and they regularly go around terrorising and intimidating the Muslim population of the country!
41 Painless8 Can't he at least be deported? Doesn't sound like a very nice person.
19 spinarandi The court heard he had been drinking heavily that day and had grabbed his wife’s arm and threatened to kill people and then himself. Before driving at Ahmed he had pushed an unknown Asian man and shouted “white power, white power”.
15 Tujanga1 So let me get this right a Polish England First member gave a Nazi salute and chased an Asian man down the street $1 u/tippr
75 lordkickass17 What are Britain First even trying to do? Islam is a religion. Britain cant ban a religion. These groups will only increase hate towards muslims
20 fellow-human-join-us I wonder if the law would act diffently if he said ”I am going to kill a christian” and had isis flyers in his pocket and so on.
22 Realdogfood Sounds like a regular good guy standing up to those pesky immigrants, i remember the good old UK where there were no muslims, everybody shouted "white power" and beat their wives. A country full of people like Marek Zakrocki would truly be a blessed place, or perhaps not.
32 4821687 Marek Zakrocki. Now, that's a very British name...
4 freshthrowaway1138 The best part to come out of this will be that it gives the police someone to keep track of for further violence. Which means they can round up a bunch of Britain First-ers when they attempt a larger violent act.
7 AdamIIA Britain first terrorist*. Oh nevermind, i forgot the uk government and the uk media couldn't care less when It's white people killing muslims.
