"In this case, the only actual threats of violence were directed at Woods. As Charlie Brooker said, “Presumably Matthew Woods learned a powerful lesson about the potential consequences of tasteless humour when a 50-strong mob turned up at his house and the police had to arrest him for his own safety. Jailing him on top of that is insane. Sick jokes can upset and offend. Hurriedly formed vigilante mobs can kill. If the state earnestly believes that the former pose a greater threat to social order than the latter, the state is nuts."
19 yr old Matthew Woods jailed for 12 weeks after posting offensive ‘jokes’ on his facebook.
