EDL gang cleared of racist chanting at Middlesbrough railway station

I wonder if some clever defense attorney had the raw wit to actually ask if Islam is a race, or if so, how it is one.

THREE men linked to a right-wing pressure group have had their convictions quashed for racially aggravated public disorder.

The trio’s fines were also slashed for behaviour described by a Teesside judge as obnoxious, unnerving, disgraceful, drunken, anti-social and inconsiderate.

They were among six men, all associated with the English Defence League (EDL),

convicted by Teesside magistrates of racially or religiously aggravated disorder last August.

It was alleged the men sang a highly inflammatory religious chant at Middlesbrough railway station.

Jak Beasley, 23, Christopher Caswell, 32, and Dean Spence, 23, appealed against the conviction at Teesside Crown Court yesterday.

This appeal was not opposed by the prosecution as a crucial witness had since emigrated to New Zealand.

The men accepted they committed a lesser disorder offence without the racial element, and appealed against fines imposed by magistrates.

    I doubt if the lawyer did, but he might have.

  2. EDL Buck says:

    They only won the appel because the main witness had moved to NZ! Lucky, very lucky. We can’t rely on “Dumb luck” again tho…..

    It helps but you can’t depend on it.
