Ex-soldier Jailed for Burning Koran in Carlisle, England. (18 April 2011)

Andrew Ryan had stolen a copy of the holy book from the library


Quote:
A former soldier has been sentenced to 70 days in prison for setting fire to a copy of Muslim holy book the Koran in the centre of Carlisle.

Andrew Ryan had previously admitted religiously aggravated harassment and theft of a Koran from a library.

The 32-year-old, of Summerhill, said he had been "shocked" watching a Muslim burning a poppy on Remembrance Day.

Shoppers and schoolchildren witnessed the burning, outside the old Town Hall, on 19 January.

Sitting at Carlisle Magistrates' Court, District Judge Gerald Chalk described it as a case of "theatrical bigotry".

'My country'

He said: "It was pre-planned by you as you stole the book deliberately.

"You went out to cause maximum publicity and to cause distress."

Ryan struggled with security guards in court after the sentence was passed.

While being handcuffed he shouted: "What about my country? What about burning poppies?"

About 10 people were in court to support Ryan, and as they left the court they shouted "do you call this justice?".

After sentencing, Insp Paul Marshall, of Cumbria Police, said: "This incident was highly unusual for Cumbria as we have such low levels of hate crime in the county."

So he religiously committed aggravated harassment against a book? Such crap, no freedom of expression in England? I'm sure burning a Bible would be ok. Muslims are the biggest religious fanatics, and shouldn't be catered to just because there going to kill each other if someone draws a picture or expresses a opinion they don't like. That book demeans people and justifies killing over differences in *beliefs. No country should bow to fanatical people with there threats of violence.

What needs to be destroyed is the acceptance of bullshit as testimony.

Burning a poppy in Afghanistan will get you an on-the-spot death sentence.
