Now I know for a fact I am going to offend some people but hey ho..here goes. But I am sick to death of a) hearing that gobshite Katie Hopkins and b) how people think they should run to the cops every time that woman opens her trap.
Yes what she says, is said to offend.. she doesn’t do it by accident… she does it too offend and to upset people and by god does she succeed… especially when people take such offence that they want her arrested and charged with trolling and god knows what else.
Trolls are a pain in the arse… they do what they do because they know people will react. And yes the most serious trolls should be dealt with by the police… for instance if what they write is threatening and makes a person fear for their life… or the threats are to harm a person or a person’s family… But for god sakes.. just because someone says something that is classed as ‘sick’… Please think of the man hours a copper has to waste because of some twat on Twitter or Facebook.
From since I can remember, and that is a good few years… sick jokes have been going around… they’ve been said in pubs, passed on by text message or said between friends sitting at the dining table. Some people find them funny whilst most of us, see how sick these jokes are…. mind you there are times when no matter how much we despise ourselves for it.. a smirk does come across your face at times.
But do we run to the cops if our mate shows us a sick joke? Of course not… we tell them straight that the joke is sick and not funny and it is bloody well sick. End of. If they show it to someone else and they find it funny well that is up to them. But as far as I am concerned it doesn’t warrant the Police getting involved.
What Hopkins said about the Ebola victim and the Scottish people, was said for impact … and boy did she get some impact.. What she said wasn’t funny and yes it was bloody offensive but it didn’t in my opinion warrant any Police Force getting involved. People like her are best ignored… do you not realise that every time someone has a go at her… she is in her element?… She is back being the centre of attention.
I wrote a blog post back in September 2014 of how the Police were so under-resourced now that they were asking victims to investigate crimes committed against them.
And do you know what?
I would be bloody angry if I was robbed or had my car stolen and I had to look for it because the Police just didn’t have the manpower and what manpower they did have was now investigating a low-life like Hopkins because she said something offensive… yet again.
Please get to grips… there is a certain family on Twitter and Facebook who are harassed day in and day out… and nothing gets done… and the harassment is allowed to continue. That is the kind of harassment that needs to be investigated and stopped by Twitter and Facebook. And should there be direct threats involved in any of these harassing posts that are written daily, then the Police should be informed… but come on… calling the cops because someone tells a sick joke…. no way… Jose… no matter how offensive some might think it is.
