The Utopian paradise of the UK never ceases to provide us with quality police state materials:
The Star reports:
MOVIE fan Martin Smith landed in court on a racism charge after he downloaded part of the soundtrack from the 1980s comedy film Rita, Sue and Bob Too! and installed it as a ringtone on his mobile…
…a woman from a mixed race family wasn’t amused when Martin’s Nokia went off as she queued alongside him at a village shop.
Over-hearing the clip from the movie – which chronicles the exploits of two schoolgirls growing up on a rundown estate in Bradford – the woman went home and lodged a formal complaint with the police.
So what happened to Martin for the heinous crime of playing a ringtone?
Officers arrested the 36-year-old at home two days later and locked him in the cells at Chesterfield for four hours before charging him with contravening race relation laws.
Martin should have known better.
Making fun of peoples race is not funny.
