Sent to prison? Where did I state that?

Didn’t somebody mention visits from police for writing something that upset somebody?

Do you know that I hate to upset people?

Do you know that I might, inadvertently, upset someone through what I wrote?

Do you (very unlikely) that I might be visited by police in certain countries for inadvertently upsetting someone?

Do you know that I believe people should be able to express opinions, no matter how stupid I think they are, without being subject to police scrutiny—with the exception of blatant threats of physical violence or death?

What if there are veiled threats of physical violence?

What about hate speech that, in its delivery, encourages others to commit violence?

What about the harm that hate speech causes to people who are already marginalized?

Did you know that this is the UK’s definition of “hate crime?”

Quote:
Any crime can be prosecuted as a hate crime if the offender has either:

- demonstrated hostility based on race, religion, disability, sexual orientation or transgender identity

Or

- been motivated by hostility based on race, religion, disability, sexual orientation or transgender identity

There is no legal definition of hostility so we use the everyday understanding of the word which includes ill-will, spite, contempt, prejudice, unfriendliness, antagonism, resentment and dislike.

Did you know I understand that this is the hate-crime statute?

Do you know it can be abused by unscrupulous people?

Did you know that somebody like Trump could believe that anything said against him could be construed as “hate speech,” and thus under the statute?

Do you know that I believe that the law could be applicable in many cases—but that it can be abused, too?

Do you know that it probably gave you a playful gore----without you knowing it?

Do you know your Triceratops is in league with your Rhinoceros in mischief?

Did you know I had a pet triceratops as a kid? Granted it was only a few inches tall and made of rubber. I called it Henry.

Did you know that Henry could have grown to Monster Height just by you putting him in water?

Did you know he used to play with a Tyrannosaurus Rex of similar size named Fred?

Do you know that I never had a dinosaur as a toy?

Do you know that interest in dinosaurs amongst children skyrocketed in the generation following mine (Generation X; I'm a Baby Boomer)?
