Because that's your opinion, and opinions are subjective.

And don't get me wrong here guys, that guy is an world class idiot, but he doesn't deserve jailtime. That's his life fucked now.

Just shows you the further wimpification of society.

Anybody that throws around the term "white knight" disdainfully is a cunt. That means you're a cunt.






Just dont tell the police that I called you that

The courts, he's saying that they will pass judgements based on public opinion so long as them lawmakers are democratically elected.

White knights aren't good, and the term white knight is supposed to be used disdainfully.

I wasn't asking because I didn't know. I think you missed the point I was driving at, which is fine because it wasn't directed at you.

Um...as a US citizen who has read and understands our Constitution, I can tell you that's not how the US courts are supposed to work. (In point of fact, any judge in the US who makes a ruling based on public opinion would've been forced to resign, in the old days.) I'm sure GB's court are not supposed to work that way either.

In the US and the UK, laws passed by elected representatives determine what a crime is. Am I close to the mark?

I don't know, did I?

As far as I understood you, you were encouraging him to think about what a crime consists of.

I meant only to say that crimes are and have been decided so by process of ethical reasoning as opposed to mass polling.

That's circular reasoning. The only reason there are crimes is because the law says some things are crimes. So you're telling me "The reason there are laws is to punish people when they break them."

I'm gonna say lel.
