UK Police Forced to Respond After Ad Claimed “Being Offensive is an Offence”

Force clarifies “being offensive is not in itself an offence.”

Merseyside Police

Merseyside Police were forced to respond after officers took part in an electronic ad campaign outside a supermarket which claimed “being offensive is an offence,” with authorities later clarifying that it is in fact not an offence.

Over the weekend, the mobile electronic billboard was parked outside an Asda supermarket for a PR campaign.

“Being offensive is an offence” states the ad, which features a police badge superimposed over an LGBT rainbow flag.

“Merseyside Police stand with and support the LGBTQI+ community, we will not tolerate hate crime on any level. Come and speak to #TeamBeb,” states the text on the ad.

The billboard received a huge backlash, with many people pointing out that it is in fact not a criminal offence to be offensive.

Merseyside Police were forced to later clarify in a statement that “being an offensive is not in itself an offence.”

Maybe they should have realized that before putting it in big letters on the side of a van.

The force said that the ad was intended to “encourage people to report hate crime” and “although well intentioned was incorrect and we apologise for any confusion this may have caused.”

Although being “offensive” isn’t illegal in the UK, there is a crime of being “grossly offensive,” but that carries with it a high bar to reach court and is very hard to prove.

As a result of underfunding, police forces in the UK are struggling to keep up with rising crime rates. Back in 2015, the head of the National Police Chiefs’ Council said that officers would be unable to attend some burglaries.

This has led to widespread criticism that authorities are too fixated on policing thought crimes while actual crimes are being ignored.

“Are there no problems with gun or knife crime in Merseyside then?” asked Nigel Farage.

Video: Virginia Kids Made To Sit Outside on Concrete In Freezing Cold For ‘Mask And Snack Break’

This time they didn’t even get buckets to sit on

The Fairfax County Parents Association has posted video taken from this week showing school children being seated on the ground outside in the snow in what school officials have described as a ‘mask and snack break.’

The footage shows a teacher from Waynewood Elementary school close to Alexandria reading to the kids while they sit apart on the concrete.

The group noted that the temperature was ‘well below freezing’:

Fairfax County Public Schools issued a statement in response noting “This morning on Twitter, an anonymous parent group posted a video that was taken outside of Waynewood Elementary School in Alexandria. In the video, a group of third grade students are taking a snack and mask break in front of the school.”

The statement continues, “The weather conditions were monitored, and the students were outside for less than seven minutes. The teacher was reading a story to keep the students entertained. Students do go outside for mask and snack breaks in cold weather, but that time is limited.”

The response did little to offset anger over the incident:

This activity has been ongoing in schools across the country.

Last month, kindergarten students in Portland, Oregon were forced to sit outside eating lunch on buckets in the near-freezing cold while socially distanced from their classmates.

At least those kids got buckets to sit on, so they’re doing better than in Virginia.

    Video: CNN Panics Over More People Beginning To Ignore COVID Fear Propaganda

    “They’re just ignoring everything and living their lives”

    CNN’s Brian Stelter and Oliver Darcy expressed disbelief and horror Monday that more Americans are beginning to live their lives normally again after two years of media driven pandemic panic and fear.

    Stelter asked a question that everyone already knows the answer to, “is the media out of touch with the public about COVID?”

    In a statement the irony of which can be lost on no one, Darcy replied that yes, the media is out of touch.

    Darcy further proclaimed “I think this is an issue because if people are tuning out what’s going on in cable news…the general population… you know, they’re just, you know, ignoring everything and living their lives and we’re not really getting the information that they need to them.”

    However will fewer than 200,000 Americans who regularly watch primetime CNN be able to cope without their daily dose of virus fearmongering?

    And how will CNN be able to sell more ad time if Americans turn it off and leave their homes?
