Two Gateshead men arrested for watching 9/11 Koran burning video

In a disturbing development, Northumbria Police in Gateshead last week arrested two men after they watched and shared a video on Facebook of a man burning the Koran in the US during the recent 9/11 commemoration at Ground Zero in New York.
The men were drinking in the Bugle pub, Leam Lane, Gateshead, when they were arrested after watching and sharing the videos.
Around 30 people staged a protest outside Gateshead police station on Wednesday evening, the 15th of September, following the arrests.
The group stood outside the doors to the police station with an England flag for about three hours watched by a contingent of uniformed officers.The protesters had gathered at around 8pm after the two men were arrested earlier in the day on 'suspicion of inciting racial hatred'.
The protest continued until around 11pm when the two arrested men were bailed pending further enquiries.
In a further development, the man who actually burned the Koran in the video on 9/11 in New York has been sacked from his job.
Derek Fenton, 39, of Bloomingdale, New Jersey, had worked for NJ Transit for 11 years as a conductor and train co-ordinator. One of his neighbours, Jacqui Marquez, said: "Good for him for burning the Koran. Everybody's entitled to their opinion. By firing him, they're sending a message that there's no freedom of speech. They're completely wrong for doing this."
Youtube have now removed all footage of Derek Fenton burning the Koran. Of course, if he had burnt the Stars and Stripes (or any other flag or religious book) the video would still be available. Double standards by Youtube, perhaps?
However, Civil Liberty has tracked down a blog which has embedded the video of Fenton's Koran-burning exploits and providing you are prepared to risk arrest from the British police

  • The modern governments of our respective nations have begun overstepping their bounds in what is and is not their business and their job. Civil unrest will not dissipate under the current tyranny but will increase steadily until it either explodes into revolution or the legislators realise their mistakes. Either way it's going to be a long road back to what the honorable forefathers had intended.

    • What the forfathers intended, is not what is implied in constitional actions of today.
      At the time blacks and native Americans were considered, 3/5th human, and did not share in the rights.
      Women were also excluded.
      When Thomas Jefferson wrote the famous words,
      "All men are created equal", what he meant was,
      All "White" men are created equal.
      He had slaves at the time, and aparently was banging a 16 year old black slave girl.

    • Thus the addition modifier "honorable"... Do not forget there were indeed white slaves and forced labor on all sides, wrongfully or rightfully, it was a way of life.

    • Agreed,
      White slaves were generally indentured servants, but they did have rights available after their slave term was over.
      The ones with little mention were the Indian slaves.
      Indians were more plentifu,l and not worth as much as the blacks, so they were generally just shot, if they got old or sick,
      My ancestor,s from the midwest did'nt see slavery, per say, we were just shot.

  • Don't insult Islam. They'll hurt you, or their allies on the left will hurt you for them.

    Let's all watch some videos of muslims in the UK burning flags and people in effigy and chanting for genocide, while police officers stand around and make sure none of the spectators say anything mean about Islam.

    What a joke.

  • In the West, our own governments pander to our enemies and decide with a heavy hand against our own interests. Tolerance gone a little too far perhaps?

    • The typical kind of leftist who causes these totalitarian governments to step on people in the first place. Random gibberish about Israel, always, in response to people being oppressed or Islamic violence. etc.

      Pretty pathetic.

    • I thought that's what he was talking about....
      "pandering to our enemies, and coming down with a heavy hand against our own interests."

      Just because you are ignorant about our relationship with Israel, and their track record does not make me a leftist.
      Maybe you should read books, instead of drudge report?

    • Yet you simultaneously disregard much of my information regarding injustices against Jews by Arabs. Do you believe I have the right to attack successful Mexican immigrants? Should I not respect them to organize and respond if I do so?

    • Yeah, I really don't care what someone's opinion of Israel is. I'm neither Israeli or Jewish, and I doubt they care what some obsessed Nazi says on the internet either.

      There's no excuse though, to see this story, and rant gibberish about Israel or any other random bs in lieu of addressing the subject at hand.

      This story is a travesty... I just recently saw a video of Islamic "demonstrators" in England. Responding to South Park not-showing Mohhamad. They were chanting Death To Englan More..

  • it is not the business of the police to get involved like this - they are shits and are not to be trusted when the shit hits the fan - they will probably side with the muj's and accordingly can be seen as the enemy too, they do nothing but harass and intimidate the local people as when hook hand used to disrupt the area and pray with hundreds of terror sympathisers in the road at Finsbury Park, they only arrested those that complained, despite the terror suspects burning flags and chanting prais More..

  • Good thing they squashed it before the Muslims found out. The religion of peace can be very unforgiving.

  • I dunno, folks. The report above doesn't give the names of the two men arrested. And I can't find any corroborating news stories that aren't small blog reports. In fact, all reports I find are merely copies of the anonymous post linked above.

  • I'm of the impression that countries like UK, Denmark don't want to agitate the Muzzies in order to "make do" with them.
    If this happened where I live, the worst these guys would have been charged with is drunk in public
    I wish the European Parliments would grow a pair and send the Muzzies back to wherever they came from

    • That isn't an option with their current economic system. The birthrate throughout the western world is too low for leftwing government to sustain itself (outside of small isolated examples with small populations). The UK needs a constant supply of new tax payers, they're not being born locally so they must be imported.

If you look back at American news archive from the 50's and 60's you'll see the right wing nutjobs like you all saying the same thing about black people, and how they're the ruin of democracies like Great Britain.

  • Propaganda Failed. The two was not arrested for watching the video, they were arrested for 'suspicion of inciting racial hatred'. In short they are arrest for being active racist and causing hurt to people. I would classify them as racial terrorists.
