2. California Prosecuting Man for Insulting Posts on Islamic Center's Facebook Page
In September 2016, Mark Feigin posted five insulting comments on the Islamic Center of Southern California's Facebook page (before he was finally blocked by the ICSC from commenting)
California is now prosecuting him for posting these comments, on the theory that they violate Cal. Penal Code § 653m(b):
“Every person who, with intent to annoy or harass, makes repeated telephone calls or makes repeated contact by means of an electronic communication device ... to another person is ... guilty of a misdemeanor. Nothing in this subdivision shall apply to telephone calls or electronic contacts made in good faith or during the ordinary course and scope of business.”
The posts, the California AG's office argues, “were made with the specific intent to annoy and harass the members of the ICSC,” because Feigin "was not trying to engage in any kind of political discussion but instead trying to vex members of the ICSC with his thoughts about their religion." The posts are criminal because they constitute “repeated harassment from those who wish to mock and disparage their religion,” and, “[r]ather than attempt to engage in discussion or debate,” are "cruel and pointedly aimed at dismissing an entire religion and those who practice it.”
3. 'Safe zone' for women set up at Berlin New Year's Eve event
New Year's Eve celebrations in Berlin will see a "safe zone" for women for the first time in the city's history.
Organizers of the Brandenburg Gate party are hoping to prevent mob attacks similar to those that occurred in Cologne two years ago.
Hundreds of women were attacked by gangs of men with migrant backgrounds during New Year's Eve celebrations in 2015.
The incident happened after Germany had accepted a record influx of more than one million migrants.
The German capital will this year have a “safety zone” where Red Cross helpers will look after women who feel harassed or threatened.
4. London Police ‘Could Be Sitting on a Rotherham Style Sexual Grooming Gang Situation’
The Metropolitan Police force “could be sitting on a Rotherham-style sexual grooming gang situation”, a London Assembly Member has claimed.
The accusation, from UKIP group leader Peter Whittle, comes as a report by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services reveals that Scotland Yard failed to properly handle 90 per cent of recent child protection cases.
Earlier this month, the Met’s most senior officer responded to concerns by claiming grooming gangs had been part of British society for “centuries”.
