What I don't get is, if they actually don't have a sense of humour and thought Paul Chambers was going to blow up Robin Hood airport because it had been snowing, surely the logical response would have been to call in the men in white coats? Who made the decision to take what he said literally
? That was the crime, criminal lack of a sense of humour. That individual shouldn't keep his job.
Here's more donkey's knob justice. Neil Weiner from Swanlea in London, gets twelve years for trying to frame his boss for possessing kiddie porn in order to get promotion. Weiner wasn't convicted of paedophilia, but for being a lowlife bastard. On the other hand, paedo postie Michael Williams gets a mere eight and a half years for grooming/abusing hundreds of kids via social networking sites. According to British justice, fitting up your boss as a paedophile is clearly more heinous than being the most prolific paedophile ever caught.
Being set up can happen to anyone. The victim could be important, in fact most likely would be. The crime of framing someone for something they didn't do damages the system. Sadly, abusing children doesn't. That's a personal choice and it will usually only happen to kids of irresponsible parents anyway, so it's less urgent to lock those people away. Child abusers are often important, respected people who use their status to get close to children.
