Dale Wilson, of Northfields, Norwich, was arrested last month for wearing an offensive Cradle of Filth t-shirt. (Read story here.) Several excerpts from a news article on EDP24 website:

Judge Roderick Newton described Wilson's action as “wholly unacceptable” adding: “It simply won't do, wearing a T-shirt which would be offensive to anyone regardless of whether or not they are religious.

“But I can see you have learnt your lesson and will take an extremely unusual course of action by discharging you. Don't do it again – you must grow up.”

Wilson, who has previous convictions including drug and dishonesty offences, was ordered to pay £150 costs.

The judge ordered the destruction of the T-shirt and knife.

Where did this happen? Communist China? That judge needs to grow the f*** up. I can see being kicked out of a private establishment for wearing such a shirt, but arrested? In the words of Chimaira: Fuuuuuuuck your powertrip! And what the hell is a "dishonesty offence"?

The right wing concervatives are out of control.This is what happen's when enough people don't vote and get involved.I hate to be the one to point this out but Russel Simmons (founder of def jam)has taken many step's to make the Hip Hop comunity a powerful political force.My question is why has'nt someone in the metal scene started doing the same.Their's alot of money in the metal scene If their is a political organization put together the powers that be will have no choice but respect your right's as citizens because you'll have someone their to fight for you.I'm sure Deathbringer can dig up statistic's on kid's being suspended and or expelled because they wore their favorite band's t-shirt to school and were then sent home for being a satanist.It happen's more often than you might think.
